In which Asian city would you be if you were dining at the 'Equinox Complex'?
The 'Equinox Complex' is a range of eateries located in the Swissotel, 'The Stamford', the tallest hotel in Singapore.
Conceptualized and developed by the famous 'Raffles International', the 'Equinox Complex' was opened in November 2001 after 'Raffles International' took over management of the hotel, and replaced the 'Compass Rose' restaurant.
The theme at the 'Equinox Complex' is to 'attain perfection and harmony throughout the year'. The idea behind naming the complex 'Equinox' refers to the time when day and night are of equal lengths, a phenomenon which occurs on two days in a year.
The complex occupies four floors from levels 69 to 72 with about 3,700 square metres of space for five restaurants and bars, with private dining rooms. All five outlets can take in over 900 diners at any one time.
Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island city-state in Southeast Asia. The country is situated one degree (137 kilometres or 85 miles) north of the equator, at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, with Indonesia's Riau Islands to the south and Peninsular Malaysia to the north. Singapore's territory consists of one main island along with 62 other islets. Since independence, extensive land reclamation has increased its total size by 23% (130 square kilometres or 50 square miles).
