Billed as Singapore’s first design hotel, this hip riverside hotspot cuts a striking figure with its postmodern, neon-lit exterior. The stylish rooms fuse minimalism with flamboyance: white bedding dotted with vibrant cushions, for instance, or metal shelving offset by gaudy wall murals. To get a feel for the Singapore arts scene, book yourself into one of the CYX rooms, which have been refurbished by local artists; the in-house photo gallery also reflects the hotel’s edgy spirit. For underwater views of the city, take a swim in the glass-sided pool.
