The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua (Hawaii) unveils multi-million dollar renovation

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua in Maui (Hawaii) has recently completed a multi-million-dollar refresh from Honolulu-based Philpotts & Associates Interior Design. The enhancements culminate to mark the property’s 25th anniversary.

Lobby upgrades were informed by the Hawaiian word “mana,” which refers to the forces of nature embodied in an object or person. Intimate lighting is installed along with fire elements and organic lines and textures to create a natural indoor-outdoor atmosphere. The lobby level is also home to the new Kai Café. The 10,000-square-foot tri-level pool is surrounded by a 20,000-square-foot sundeck appointed with newly revamped cabana suites. New landscaping anchors the property in a tropical ambiance.

The 463 guestrooms and 107 residential suites have each been updated to reflect the natural beauty and heritage of Maui. Sand and azure blue tones inject a sense of calm, while accents of deep green capture the ocean and the flora. Floor-to-ceiling windows reinforce the majesty of the serene surroundings.

Aston Martin unveils ‘Art of Living by Aston Martin’ experiences for 2018

Aston Martin has revealed the initial offering of ‘Art of Living by Aston Martin’ experiences for 2018. These exclusive experiences will offer unparalleled access to guests who would like to live life the Aston Martin way.

A highlight in the new Aston Martin’s Art of Living season is ‘Hokkaido On Ice’, an opportunity to experience a range of Aston Martin models against the spectacular backdrop of Japan’s northernmost island. Under the tutelage of expert drivers, guests will learn how to control a car in the slippery conditions, pushing themselves and the cars to the limit.

Further driving focused events are scheduled for 2018, including the wilds of Norway, starting with the breathtaking views from the famous Atlantic Ocean Road. A drive through the Scottish Highlands will take guests through rugged mountain ranges, stunning lochs and historic castles and for those looking for the warmth of the sun, a trip to South Africa to cruise along the coastline close to Cape Town awaits.

For racing enthusiasts, imagine heading out to Barcelona ahead of the 2018 Formula One season to watch the new cars being put through their paces before the teams fly off to Melbourne, Australia for the first race of the year. Art of Living by Aston Martin guests will have exclusive access to the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing garage and the chance to meet the F1TM drivers and team members as they prepare for the new season.

For guests looking for some racing action there is plenty on offer. Formula One fans can attend the most glamorous F1TM race of them all: the Monaco Grand Prix, where they will enjoy the highest levels of passion, drama and performance like never before. Or they can choose to collect an Aston Martin at the Red Bull Racing HQ in the UK and driving to the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium before kicking back and watching the Belgian Grand Prix.

In 2017 Aston Martin took a glorious win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 2018 Art of Living guests are invited to join the team as it defends its title against the best cars and drivers in the world. Staying at the stunning Chateau de Jalesnes, guests will beat the queues by taking helicopter transfers to and from the circuit as they cheer on the Aston Martin Racing team.

Goodwood is again a firm fixture in the Aston Martin Art of Living season.  Whether it is the fast and furious Festival of Speed or a step back in time to the glorious Revival, guests will have unprecedented access to the heart of the action at the Duke of Richmond’s beautiful estate.

The Nürburgring Driving Academy experience will provide guests with one-on-one tuition on the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife so they can learn how to drive an Aston Martin sports car on one of the world’s most brutal race tracks. Closer to home, the Art of Living now offers behind-the-scenes at Aston Martin’s global headquarters, unique access to the marques heritage centre, Aston Martin Works, and an exhilarating performance driving experience at Millbrook Proving Ground.

Céline appoints Hedi Slimane as new Creative Director – to launch menwear and Couture

Hedi Slimane, Saint Laurent‘s star designer, is joining LVMH‘s Celine from February 1st. Slimane will show his first collection for CELINE next September.

It marks yet another major step in Slimane’s career, who cemented his reputation at Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the Kering-owned house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 — all the while maintaining a close rapport with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“I am particularly happy that Hedi is back within the LVMH Group and taking the creative reins of our Céline maison,” said Bernard Arnault, chairman and ceo of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, calling Slimane “one of the most talented designers of our time.

According to WWD, the first freestanding Céline men’s boutiques are to open as early as 2019. Slimane’s designs for men are sure to attract keen interest from retailers and fashion fans alike — while perhaps sparking anxiety among some of his designer colleagues in men’s.

In a statement, Slimane said he is “delighted to join Bernard Arnault in this all-embracing and fascinating mission for Céline. I greatly look forward to returning to the exciting world of fashion and the dynamism of the ateliers.”

Slimane takes over Céline from Phoebe Philo, who announced her resignation from the brand last December after an electrifying 10-year tenure

Six Senses to open two city hotels in Singapore

Six Senses Singapore is split across two buildings that are an easy wander apart. Six Senses Duxton and Six Senses Maxwell will mark the brand’s first city hotels, celebrating local Singapore culture and history while adding a touch of playfulness to the heritage properties. There is a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements in the buildings including neo-classical lion head motifs, Chinese porcelain-chip friezes co-existing with Malay timber fretwork, French windows, Portuguese shutters and Corinthian pilasters. Guests can make full use of all facilities and outstanding service in both, as well as the rich local community in between. No matter where you sleep, guests can sign for services at either hotel and will consider both locations.

Along with always infusing a touch of quirkiness into each property, a priority for Six Senses is its commitment to authenticity and responsible preservation. In recognition of this, both properties have received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award. Six Senses Duxton is due to open in April 2018, followed by Six Senses Maxwell three months later.

Six Senses Duxton

With its colorful past, Duxton Road in old Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar, is also known as Jinrickshaw Place named after the rickshaw pullers who used to gather by the station. In the not-so-recent-past, this colorful section of town was home to opium and gambling dens and places of even less reputable vices. Today the site features a row of trading houses that have been sustainably restored under the designer Anoushka Hempel, acclaimed for her Hempel and Blake’s hotels in London.

In harmony with a rich Asian history, yet still presenting her luminary vision, Anoushka has given each of the 49 guestrooms and suites a unique individuality so that no two are exactly the same. Guests are in for an eccentric, elegant surprise as they enter the hotel which includes large golden fans and strong hues of black, gold and yellow, layered with Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Anoushka’s personal collection. Gold takes center stage in the restaurant, which will offer a fine dining menu of classic and innovative Chinese cuisine. Adjacent is an antiquarian library themed lobby bar serving up the hotel’s signature house cocktails.

With Singapore being Asia’s crossroads and interchange to the world, Anoushka has worked within the restrictions of a heritage building and variations of room size to successfully express her vision throughout the hotel. From a magnificent Kimono Suite to smaller spaces that she refers to as petit grandeur, elegant bespoke furnishings and the designer ambience typify the experience in every way.

Six Senses Maxwell

Maxwell Road was originally a nutmeg plantation before 14 three- and four-story colonial-style buildings were constructed and later joined together as a single entity. The diverse characteristics have been carefully conserved and the property features 138 guestrooms and suites, a Six Senses Spa, outdoor lap pool, Champagne bar and lounge, whiskey bar, boardroom and club lounge. A verandah lined with lush tropical foliage follows the length of the building and will be the ideal spot to meet for refreshments and alfresco dining.

The interior design is by French architect and designer Jacques Garcia. It reflects the authentic decor and furnishings of the era in which it was built, but with a stylish modern twist. Jacques has infused a Western sensibility along with a timeless ambience, as he has done with La Mamounia in Marrakesh, Hotel Costesin Paris and NoMad in New York.

His attention to detail is showcased throughout the 50 unique room types, from the brass, lacquer and marble mini bars to the handmade Lafroy Brooks bathroom fixtures. All rooms feature handmade mattresses by Naturalmat and organic bed linens to support Sleep With Six Senses, a key pillar of the group’s Integrated Wellness philosophy.

Colonial meets modern Europe in the restaurant, where the mouthwateringly indulgent yet health-full menus represent the brand’s pioneering approach to fresh, local and seasonal food and drink: Eat With Six Senses. Six Senses Spa will offer specialty treatments while the external lap pool offers a refreshing escape to complement Singapore’s tropical weather.

In addition to the environmental considerations implemented in the redevelopment of both properties, the hotel will also participate in a program that will make them carbon-free after purchasing United Nations-certified carbon credits, while standing to save up to 20 percent in energy costs. This continued focus on sustainable practices is also evident in the seven new resorts and two further spas opening under the Six Senses brand from now until early 2019.
