Youtube video review: Deluxe suite (JW Marriott Singapore South Beach) | Hotel Review
Situated in downtown Singapore, JW Marriott Singapore South Beach offers luxurious accommodations with contemporary designs and panoramic views of the Singapore city skyline. This hotel is highly accessible with multiple MRT lines within walking distance via a series of underground tunnels and malls. In addition, this hotel has two fabulous infinity pools (not covered in this review) and a couple of extremely popular restaurants.
The deluxe suite, although the entry level suite, is one of the most desirable rooms in this property. With a delicate balance between floor size and sweeping views from the room, it is ideal for a small family or friends gathering. The suite is about 74sqm in floor size, featuring a separate living room, pantry area and bedroom. The furnishing is similar to every other room in the hotel, with modern and stylish interiors.
The lift lobby and corridor leading to our room.
The lift landing and corridors leading to our suite had a nice modern touch which extended into our room. Upon entering the suite, we were greeted by a long narrow corridor linking the entrance door to the living space.

Immediately to the left upon entering is a small space to leave our laundry bags for the hotel staff to collect. This can also double up as a storage space. Adjacent to this was the entrance to a guest bathroom which was rather elongated and had a toilet bowl with a smart toilet seat and a basin. Next to the guest bathroom was a cabinet where we could hang all our clothes. In this cabinet, two bathrobes, some laundry bags, bedroom slippers and a built-in safe could be found.

At the end of the narrow corridor was the living space. This living space wasn't entirely spacious but was functional and tastefully designed. The two-seater leather sofa could function as a sofa bed, making it possible to sleep a third adult or child in this room. The flat screen television was mounted on a wooden frame and guests can enjoy watching shows not just in the bedroom but also the living room.

A work desk was positioned right behind the leather sofa. This work desk had a lamp that had a motion sensor, a telephone, some writing materials, a care kit and a price list for the minibar items. A rocking chair was tucked under the table.

Behind the workspace was a pantry equipped with a sink, some glassware, an electric kettle, a Nespresso machine and some complimentary TWG teabags. This was also where the minibar and mini fridge items were stored. As the prices are rather steep, it is advisable to go to one of the malls nearby to purchase your snacks or drinks.

The bedroom was connected to the living room via another narrow corridor. There were mirror panels on one side of the walls to make it appear more spacious. There was also a cabinet on this side with standard bedroom amenities provided.

In the middle of this corridor was the main bathroom. The bathroom was probably our most favourite part of the room as it had the most favourable view from the entire hotel. The highlight of the bathroom was the free standing bathtub by the window overlooking the Marina Bay skyline. Both hand-held and rain showers were found and two basins with standard bathroom amenities were provided.

The bedroom wasn't short of spectacular either. With a decent floor size, this corner bedroom offers impressive 90 degree views of the Singapore skyline. The bed was extremely comfortable and the design of this bedroom was consistent with the modern finish of other parts of this hotel.

As mentioned, the deluxe suite is a corner room and so the views are among the best out of all the available guest rooms. It is highly recommended to purchase a room with Marina Bay views.
Impressive views from various parts of the suite.
Booking a deluxe suite entitles guests access to the executive lounge which offers afternoon tea service and evening cocktail and canapés hours. This were an all-you-can-eat sessions. Daily breakfast was also served at Beach Road Kitchen, on the ground floor.
Afternoon Tea at Executive Lounge
A welcome three-tier stand was first brought over to sample each food item after which we were allowed to order more of the items we wanted. During the evening cocktail and canapés service, the chef would walk around with hot food items and offered them to us. Overall, the executive lounge services were relaxing and had a good variety of tasty items.

Breakfast at Beach Road Kitchen
Breakfast was served daily at Beach Road Kitchen and an allocated time slot would need to be reserved to comply with safe distancing measures. There was a choice of indoors or outdoors seating. Each guest was allowed to order only one set of hot dish which included American breakfast sets like eggs done your way or local breakfast sets like Nasi Lemak and porridge. Other items like bread basket, waffles, pancakes, French toasts, assorted cereals and fruits were free-flow. The breakfast was extremely filling and enjoyable and was certainly worth the additional fee. The same can't be said about the organisation however, as they tried charging us extra as they could not find our breakfast entitlement that came with the room booking. This was the third time in three visits that it happened.

Concluding remarks: The deluxe suite at JW Marriott Singapore is probably one of the most desirable rooms in this property because of its large size and unbeatable views. As this is a rather large and popular hotel, the service rendered can vary greatly. For a better stay experience, we recommend avoiding peak periods such as school holidays and public holidays.
