Global Roaming: Singapore views

The new venue of choice is anywhere with a view...

It’s surprising that Singaporeans have only recently woken up to the fact that their crowded canyons of skyscrapers boast some super views. Equinox Bar (www.singapore-stamford.swissotel.com) – 70 floors above street level – is holding on tight to its crown of venue with the best city views while fighting off a fresh crop of new contenders for the title. Leading the pack is the newly opened Ku de Ta (www.kudeta.com.sg) bar and restaurant on the 200m high rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands casino resort. Not to be outdone, the 282m high 1-Altitude (www.1-altitude.com) is the world’s highest alfresco bar, offering spiced rum cocktails, a panoramic 360 degree sweep of the city, and one of the best sunset spots in town. And the notion of a room with a view takes on a lovely perspective of Marina Bay and its skyscrapers with the swish rooms in the Fullerton Bay Hotel (www.fullertonbayhotel.com), the only hotel in town that’s literally built over the water. Meanwhile, sip a pre-prandial cocktail at Bob’s Bar (www.capellasingapore.com) while lounging on a day bed overlooking a bucolic tableau of mirror-still swimming pools, lush forests and the South China Sea. Closer to the ground, but with equally lush jungle views, are the cocoon-like massage suites at Beauty Emporium (www.dempseyhouse.com).
