Parkroyal on Pickering

The three-towered, blue-and-green glass property is remarkable for its connecting, undulating tiered design inspired by terraced Balinese rice paddies and the elevated gardens that seem to hang from above. Designed by Singapore starchitects WOHA, the Parkroyal on Pickering is almost an extension of the green space in front of it—Hong Lim Park—with 160,000 square feet of gardens, reflecting pools, waterfalls, planter terraces, and vertical landscaping. Eco-mindfulness is evident elsewhere: photo sensors monitor light usage, showers are low-flow, sheets are changed on alternate days (less frequently if requested), and rooms have refillable glass water bottles. The property’s most striking space is the fifth-floor wellness area, where cabanas are shaped like giant bird cages, and the infinity pool looks out above the park with a view of the shophouses across the way. The generally compact rooms espouse the Scandinavian-sleek look.

An Eco-Friendly Luxury Hotel in Central Singapore

I loved the green policy of this hotel. Everything rotated around this eco-friendliness, from water bottles in the rooms to hundreds of gardens around the hotel. The swimming pool and the fitness center are a must try - they both have a stunning view over Singapore! Breakfast as well was a top notch adventure, I think I never experienced such a rich high-quality choice of food. All in all an amazing place to stay.
