Promising to be an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city underscored by its signature bespoke hospitality, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore will welcome guests for stays from 01 October 2018.The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore is nestled at the centre of the continually revitalised luxury heritage lifestyle destination, Capitol Singapore, encompassing an exclusive 39-unit residential tower, a premium retail mall and the iconic Capitol Theatre.Beautifully restored, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore features a design that stays true to the buildings’ colonial Art Deco and Victorian aesthetics while stylishly capturing contemporary beauty and elegance to be a true masterpiece. Each design element infuses homely warmth into the space while giving the feeling of understated grandeur, underscoring its stately past. Precise lines and geometric shapes are a recurring design theme, a nod to the Art Deco style of the early 20th century, when Capitol Building was first built.
