Fairmont Singapore's revamped South Tower has reopened following an extensive renovation. 

Under the guidance of hospitality interior-design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the new South Tower has been made over to incorporate upgraded amenities, redesigned elevator lobbies and vibrant corridors leading to the 403 rooms -- which range from 484 to 2,045 square feet. 

The design combines dark wood panels, herringbone tweeds and opulent leathers, accentuated with art pieces and furniture that reference Singapore's heritage. The bar has been positioned behind the bed, hidden in a black lacquer cabinet framed by leather panels and an antique mirror.

Fairmont Singapore is the first in the brand to install a Swisspro water dispenser, offering access to unlimited filtered hot and cold water in all rooms. The original Fairmont Singapore room design -- which was done by the late I.M. Pei -- serves as a basis for the new look, so hotel guests can still enjoy impressive views of the city and harbor.

Other refreshed areas include the Fairmont Gold Lounge on the 25th floor, framed by an open kitchen counter and well suited for either business meetings or relaxation. The hotel's popular Italian restaurant, Prego, has also reopened after a facelift, with head chef Mauro Sanna serving up classics made with fresh produce and time-tested recipes.

The luxury hotel offers 778 rooms in total, across two towers, as well as 13 F&B options and 1.2 million square feet of meeting space.
