This carefully restored five-star retreat sits in downtown Singapore

Within walking distance of Parliament, the National Gallery and the legendary Victoria Theatre, the Capitol Kempinski sits right at the heart of Singapore's cultural and civic district. Adjoined to the huge luxury lifestyle complex, Capitol Singapore, the hotel offers direct access to the Capitol Piazza shopping mall and the Capitol Theatre – once an iconic gem of Singapore's cinema scene. The elegant result of an epic renovation project, the Capitol Kempinski combines two former icons of the city – the Capitol Building and historic Stamford House, one of Singapore's original department stores. Following a huge restoration, today it's a city escape of timeless indulgence.

Take some time out of sightseeing and visit the hotel's spa – a boutique retreat of relaxation with just three treatment rooms. Outside, a saltwater pool provides a cooling respite from the intense humidity, while indoors you can restore energy levels with a European-style high tea in the intimate lobby lounge. Other dining options here range from an urban German dining room and café-style deli to a signature restaurant helmed by a three Michelin-starred chef.

The rooms and suites are located in both of the iconic buildings – all have contemporary designs and include original wooden flooring, high ceilings and elegant bathrooms with a freestanding tub. Deluxe Rooms have views overlooking the hotel's inner courtyard while Terrace Rooms include a private terrace with city views. Opt for a suite to indulge in a larger interior; located within the former Capitol Building, the Executive Suites include a separate living room for premium comfort. Inside the historic Stamford House, Heritage Suites are the most exclusive in the hotel, with a generous separate bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and private dining area.
