Seated right in the heart of Orchard Road, the new Pullman Singapore Orchard is sandwiched between sky-scraping luxury malls and shopping destinations, overlooking one of the busiest streets in all of Singapore. Things are no less dizzying on the inside. A sleek lobby is elevated with industrial lighting and reflective hanging chain installations filling the ceiling. Once you are checked in, the walkway which leads you to your room is lined with strips of neon light, making your early introduction to the hotel decidedly club-esque.
The rooms, which offer fabulous city views out of large windows, are compact but well-outfitted with mid-century modern furniture, peppered with industrial details. The bathroom, in particular, is a design delight. Periwinkle tiles are offset by a plush terracotta upholstered stool, tucked under a vanity between the double sinks—complete with a well-positioned hidden mirror that you can reveal by pulling out a drawer. Finding a comfortable corner with good lighting to do your makeup in is always a challenge in hotel rooms—but this thoughtful touch in the Pullman Singapore Orchard ensures that you always have a spot to sit in languidly as you go through your morning or night routine.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Eden, boasts contemporary cuisine infused with Asian flavour. Set in a stunning, light-filled glasshouse, dinner here should begin with the Tuna Ceviche, where freshly diced yellowfin tuna is served with kaffir-infused coconut cream, finger lime and topped with ikura. The Beef Rendang is another easy standout, thanks to fork-tender beef cheek that melts instantly in your mouth.
The ultimate centrepiece comes in the form of a juicy grain-fed Szechuan T-Bone, deliciously seasoned with Szechuan peppercorn and boasting excellent marbling. Spicy, moreish and hearty, this is a must-order if you’re dining in a group.
If you find yourself with some downtime during your stay, the hotel offers a few prime spots for leisure. The P.S.O Beach Club holds the hotel’s outdoor pool connected to a swim-up pool bar, where a bartender liberally doles out glasses of rosé and sparkling wine.
Elsewhere, the stylish Atelier Lounge is the perfect venue to get some work done, or indulge in afternoon tea. And should you wish to step out for a spot of shopping—there could be nowhere better than the very epicentre of Orchard Road.
