Former Six Senses hotels to reopen under Marriott’s Autograph Collection
The two properties will be renamed as The Maxwell Reserve, Autograph Collection, and The Duxton Reserve, Autograph Collection.
Following Six Senses’s exit from Singapore, the two colonial properties it used to manage will reopen under the Marriott International flag, the hotels’ owner, The Garcha Group, revealed to CNA Luxury.
“The two colonial-era gems in the heart of Singapore's buzzing and dynamic Tanjong Pagar enclave have been rechristened The Maxwell Reserve Hotel, Autograph Collection and The Duxton Reserve Hotel, Autograph Collection. We are very proud to announce that we are now part of the Autograph Collection, a curated collection of remarkable independent hotels across the world by Marriott International,” said Harpreet Bedi, CEO of The Garcha Group.

Autograph Collection is Marriott International’s collection of independent luxury hotels. Hotels in the collection focus on character, design and architecture. “We will launch the new hotels under the Autograph Collection in 2021,” Bedi said.
There are currently no plans to renovate the two properties. “These award-winning properties have been designed by world-renowned designers Anouska Hempel and Jacques Garcia under the design direction of Satinder Garcha. The hotel's look and feel, and most importantly the vibe, spirit and energy will remain unchanged.”
Guests will also be glad to know that F&B offerings Yellow Pot at the Duxton property and Cook & Tras Social Library at the Maxwell property will also “remain essentially the same”. A new flagship restaurant and bar, named SHIKAR, will be introduced to the Maxwell property.
“SHIKAR, which means to hunt in Hindi, is a take on classic Indian slow cooking of meats infused in aromatic Indian spices, with a twist of Western sensibility,” shared Bedi.
While the hotel will open to guests in 2021, F&B offerings will open earlier, at the end of 2020, Bedi shared.
