With nine serviced residences in Singapore, here’s how Far East Hospitality’s portfolio accommodates the needs of the discerning business traveller.
Far East Hospitality is a leading operator of hotels and serviced residences in Singapore. All nine serviced residences in Singapore, as well as the Sri Tiara Residences in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, are designed with the discerning traveller in mind.
Whether travelling alone, visiting with a partner, or enjoying a vacation with family, guests experience comfort with the discreet and thoughtful housekeeping service and round-the-clock security. Its serviced residences portfolio comprises three distinctive brands: Oasia, Village and Far East Collection.
The Oasia brand represents a restorative respite in the city that inspires and empowers guests to journey well when travelling through three wellness pillars – refresh, refuel and recharge.
The first Oasia serviced residence, located in the West Coast of Singapore, opened in October 2016. Oasia Residence, Singapore sits on the fringe of the city’s bustling science and technology cluster.
Exemplifying a tranquil home away from home which combines a prime location, best value and attentive service, Oasia Residence, Singapore appeals to astute business travellers who seek wellness within the comfort and familiarity of a city.
The Village brand reflects the uniqueness of the urban neighbourhood where the property is located.
The brand delivers memorable experiences that enable guests to live like a local through three brand pillars – eat like a local, play like a local and explore like a local. Village Residence Clarke Quay and Village Residence Robertson Quay are in close proximity to trendy restaurants and pubs along the Singapore River and the Marina Bay financial district. The culturally rich Chinatown is also minutes away for guests who want a taste of the local heritage.
Village Residence Hougang and Village Residence West Coast are situated in the residential suburbs off ering an authentic all-encompassing heartland experience away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Each property in the Far East Collection has a unique character and is located within or close to vibrant urban centres. The four properties under the Far East Collection brand off er convenience and impeccable service, in a wide range of options for travellers who want to stay in the heart of the city.
Orchard Scotts Residences caters to families with young children, while frequent business travellers travelling alone or as a couple will find convenient access to the city centre, shopping malls and MRT stations at Far East Plaza Residences, Orchard Parksuites and Regency House.
Arthur Kiong, chief executive officer at Far East Hospitality, on the future of serviced residences: “We expect the demand for serviced residences to increase as they offer significant differentiation from other accommodation options. Both leisure and savvy corporate travellers are happy to trade services for space, and they see serviced apartments as particularly attractive alternatives to hotels for mid-term to longterm stays. Serviced apartments provide just the right level of critical services such as security, concierge services and regular housekeeping.
“It is really comfort without excess – something that today’s sophisticated travellers are looking for. Furthermore, Millennials, who are now the most frequent business travellers, enjoy independence. “They are more comfortable doing things on their own, unlike the past where they required bell service, room service and laundry service.”
