Arts & Culture
Depicting rice grains, our hotel’s logo unveiled following our hotel’s major revamp in 2010, pays tribute to Bras Basah, a transliteration of the Malay term “beras” meaning “harvested rice” and “basah” which means “wet”.

If you prefer to reconnect with nature, be surprised how close the historic Fort Canning Park is, nestled on a hill rich in history, flora and fauna.
