Far East Hospitality, one of Singapore’s leading operator of hotels and serviced residences, last week (18 October) announced three new hotels set to open in 2019 to provide tailor-made experiences for business travellers.
According to a media release, these properties are Village Hotel at Sentosa and The Outpost
Hotel which will both open Q1 2019, as well as The Barracks Hotel which is slated to open Q3 2019.
Adding 839 rooms across three distinct hotel experiences – all at a strategic location at Artillery Avenue in the Palawan area of Sentosa, this new gateway and getaway is poised to shift Singapore’s visitors’ centre of gravity to the nation’s State of Fun.
Arthur Kiong, chief executive officer, Far East Hospitality, said: “Located in a prime area in Sentosa, our new hotels offer guests the best of both connectivity as well as the serenity of an island getaway. It’s as near, or as far as you want it to be.”
Village Hotel at Sentosa: For business travellers, families and groups
Just 2 minutes away from Imbiah monorail station, 10 minutes from Singapore’s Cable Car Sky Network, and a walk away from Universal Studios Singapore, the beach, and the Sentosa Merlion, guests will be able to enjoy excellent connectivity to major attractions in Sentosa.
The hotels also place guests close to the Sentosa causeway, and adjacent to a bus stop serving buses going into the main city area, making getting around the mainland a breeze. Here, they are no more than 15 minutes away from the Central Business District, major shopping areas, and attractions including Gardens by the Bay and Trick Eye Museum.
An expansion of the Village brand, Village Hotel at Sentosa is set to be its flagship property offering one of Sentosa’s largest room inventories at 606 rooms. These rooms add to the island’s mid-tier accommodation options and includes family rooms that each come with two en-suite bathrooms and two sets of amenities.
True to the brand, the hotel experience embodies the uniqueness of where it is located. Its modern architecture transports guests to an island getaway thoughtfully juxtaposed against the beautifully restored heritage buildings in the area, while the room aesthetics are energetic and fun, featuring sunwashed hues of nature by the sea.
The venue also has the capability to host large-scale celebrations and meetings of up to 480 pax at The Commune.
The Outpost Hotel: A stylish adult-oriented island getaway
An adult-oriented getaway, The Outpost Hotel is a new brand to the Far East Hospitality portfolio.
Offering 193 stylish guest rooms featuring chic and bold aesthetics inspired by distinctive black and white design, the hotel is suitable for individual travellers and couples. The hotel experience has been built for guests who prefer exclusivity and appreciate attention to detail.
On the rooftop of The Outpost Hotel is a pool and bar available exclusively to guests. Overlooking the sea, the space is perfect for evening cocktails, candlelit dinners and intimate celebrations.
The Barracks Hotel: A luxurious island getaway for the discerning traveller
Another new brand to Far East Hospitality, The Barracks Hotel offers an experience designed for the discerning traveller looking for old school luxury, exquisite service and timeless charm.
Housed in a conserved colonial building, the hotel is rich in heritage and history, serving as a window to the island’s past.
With just 40 rooms, the hotel is highly exclusive with rooms on the ground floor offering direct access to the pool and jacuzzi.
