AccorHotels has announced that the highly anticipated Sofitel Singapore City Centre will open its doors in October and will be the group’s landmark 800th hotel in Asia Pacific. Nestled amidst historic shop houses and towering skyscrapers, the 223-room luxury hotel is elegantly designed, reflecting Singapore’s rich cultural heritage with undeniable French flair.
“The unveiling of Sofitel Singapore City Centre marks an important milestone for AccorHotels as we continue to strengthen our presence in the region,” says Michael Issenberg, Chairman and CEO of AccorHotels Asia Pacific. “I am pleased to announce that this flagship hotel is our 800th property in Asia-Pacific and opens at a time when we are focused on strengthening our luxury credentials globally.”
An oasis at the heart of historic Tanjong Pagar, the hotel is strategically situated just 20 minutes from Singapore’s Changi Airport. It will be AccorHotels’ 13th hotel in Singapore and will be shortly followed by a combined 782-room Novotel and Mercure complex which will open on Stevens Road, firmly cementing the group’s position as the largest hotel operator in Singapore.
Guests may choose from 223 well-appointed rooms and suites. Several dining outlets out there include Racines, helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Jean-Charles Dubois, which will offer both French and Chinese cuisines prepared by two distinct culinary brigades across four open kitchens for a truly interactive culinary experience.
Sofitel Singapore City Centre will offer 20,000 square feet of meeting spaces across 10 flexible venues including the 600 sqm Wallich Ballroom, named after Nathaniel Wallich, the founding father of the Singapore Botanical Gardens. The hotel has partnered with the award-winning Imperial Treasure to provide premium wedding and banqueting menus.
The brand continues to expand its global portfolio with recent openings of Sofitel Baltimore in Paris, Sofitel Foshan and the latest Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara and Sofitel Guiyang Hunter. Upcoming flagship hotel soon to open in Asia Pacific will be the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour.
To celebrate the opening of Sofitel’s flagship property in Singapore, the hotel is offering a special opening rate of $800++ per room for 2 nights, in commemoration of Sofitel Singapore City Centre being the 800th Accor Hotel in Asia Pacific.
