Comprising a bar, all-day dining restaurant, spa and gym, the Conrad’s expansive pool lounge adjoins the 25m lap-pool on the roof of a four storey podium. The palette is deliberately minimal – handsome teak and white oak timbers are contrasted against frosted mirror panes to create a warm yet sleek and contemporary setting for the lounge’s varied activities.
Building on the late Jaya Ibrahim’s original designs, Brewin Design Office’s new plans for the guest rooms and suites of the Capella Hotel bring a fresh, understated luxury to the rooms by focusing on quality craftsmanship, whilst preserving the existing interior architecture. Quiet hues and a palette of natural textures – such as rich woodgrains and hammered timber, brushed bronze and intricate carpet weavings, alongside a contemporary collection of custom-designed furniture, lighting, and fixtures – visually connect each guest room with the seascape and breathtaking colours of the resort’s verdant setting.
Located on its top floor, the Conrad Centennial’s Executive Lounge required a balance between a contemporary and luxurious design, and a careful choice of colours and materials that echo the iconic burgundy and granite finishings in the hotel’s other spaces. The restrained design is reflected in an array of artworks and accessories that channel a light Asian mood, with each space warmly furnished like a private residence, the better to evoke in patrons a comforting memory of being at home.
