M Social Singapore, a 293-room lifestyle design hotel that thrives on an interplay of friendship, community and new experiences, is now open. Situated along the Singapore River, M Social overlooks the Robertson Quay enclave and is part of an integrated development which includes UP@Robertson Quay, a luxury apartment project developed by City Developments.

M Social Singapore’s chic interiors are by French designer Philippe Starck. It debuts in Singapore the concept of “democratic design”, where spaces around the hotel are accessible and flexible enough to cater to different needs. The theme is centred around being “snuggish” – cosy guest rooms with warm colour tones, pashmina throws and thick carpets.

Complementing these are communal spaces that encourage gathering and mingling, embellished by customised art and design elements. For instance, the entrance is marked by sculptures of two bronze peanuts, as well as a cube. Underfoot, colourful
tiles make for a psychedelic first impression. The generous use of chandeliers recessed into the ceiling provide hints of contemporary glamour.

Accommodation options have generous ceiling heights of up to 4.1m, and come in varying sizes and configurations. The Nicer Room has a terrace attached to it, while The Bigger Room is actually a duplex-style loft with a terrace.

M Social Singapore also prides itself on embracing technology. It is the first in the country to offer a self-check-in kiosk in the lobby. Placed within each room is a smartphone preloaded with a city guide. It comes with complimentary unlimited data usage and free phone calls both locally and internationally.

Hungry? Beast & Butterflies offers a menu influenced by East and West: the Great Rack of China, a rack of lamb marinated with Sichuan spices; and Demoburger, where a slab of grilled Wagyu beef is accompanied by garlic cheese fries and mesclun salad with sesame dressing.

But this is more than just a hotel; it is a lifestyle experience. The M Social Committee, made up of key opinion leaders, is responsible for curating a digital guide to Robertson Quay and attractions around Singapore for the millennial globetrotter. The Committee, made up of personalities such as Lim Sek (CEO, Music & Movement) and Timothy Go (TV presenter), will also be curating the I M Social Series, a programme that will reinforce the hotel as a lively hub and host of thematic
gatherings and activities, such as morning taichi sessions and yoga on the pool deck.

Regulars can join the M Social Club, where they can enjoy exclusive perks and privileges at the hotel.
