the hotel is well decorated in a contemporary setting (a lot of thoughts went into the design which is evident through out its lobby, facilities and corridors). Got nothing but praise for the appearance of the hotel. Guests are greeted with abstract glass mushrooms as wall decoration on each floor (resembling Dale Chihuly's work, but it may not be), and the lobby exhibits a bronze recreation of Auguste Rodin's Eternal Spring. Even lobby bathrooms have exotic marble flooring. Great taste!
Saw a few reviews complaining about the hotel service. Maybe I was lucky, but I find the hotel service to be one of the best I've ever encountered in Singapore. Everyone from lobby receptionist, maintenance worker, pool guy, restaurant waiter to Batista greeted us with a smile and were polite / eager to please. The pool and gym are available to guests 24 hours a day allowing everyone for dip or workout at anytime you feel like.
Shuttle bus service is available for drop-off and pickup during various periods of the day. The hotel is not the most ideal place for people looking to see the rest of Singapore (even if you are driving), but it's the perfect place if you are looking to getaway from city noise and relax by the tranquil pool at a tugged away corner of Singapore.
Shuttle bus timetable displays bus departure time from the hotel (not the time it arrives at the pickup point), so guests have to estimate the approximate bus arrival time based on the traffic condition at the time.
Lighting control in the room was not intuitive nor easy to figure out, and I find the purple neon light in the room to be very disorienting.
