Fancy a stay at the Oasia Downtown Singapore? Yes please!
Some are starting to share their secrets, others are remaining wrapped in mystery, but whatever stage they’re at, there’s a whole host of new hotels – from budget to business to boutique – slated to open in Singapore in 2016. Here, we pick the ones you should plan a staycation at. One small bag and your man in tow, optional.
Oasia Hotel Downtown
100 Peck Seah Street
Due to open: April 2016
No, it’s not a huge vertical lawn floating in the sky, the vertical greenery giving very impressive stand-out will be the new 27-storey designer hotel, Oasia Hotel Downtown. The latest offering from the Far East Hospitality's portfolio not only has a lush green façade, but superior to club rooms, two rooftop pools, a 24 hour gym, complimentary wi-fi, the CIN-CIN Bar and The Marmalade Pantry. Located next to Tanjong Pagar MRT it’s in the ideal spot to visit Clarke Quay, Orchard Road and Marina Bay, but as this is a staycation we recommend you stay put, stick a ‘Do Not Disturb’ on the door and enjoy the surroundings.
Spend a Saturday snuggling at M Social Singapore.
M Social Singapore
90 Robertson Quay
Due to open: June 2016
Located overlooking Robertson Quay’s fun restaurants and bars, you’ll want to go out and stay in all at the same time at the M Social Singapore. This 293-room design hotel is set to open with a boutique feel, top tech amenities and its very own quirkiness designed by the renowned Philippe Starck. This cool escape comes with ‘Nice Rooms’ and ‘Nicer Rooms, high ceilings, unique furnishings and clever layouts so it feels like nowhere else. There’s a fitness centre, outdoor swimming pool, daily newspapers, wi-fi, all-day dining, grab-and-go options and a lounge bar. The owners hope you will visit to ‘shake off what’s holding you back and to collect memories.’ Sounds do-able to us…
Posh it up at The Patina when it opens later this year.
15 Stamford Road
Due to open: July – Sept 2016
Dust your best dress and heels down – The Patina is going to be super-posh and luxurious. It’s housed in a Colonial-style building (which has been restored by Pritzker Prize Laureate Richard Meier) and the design is by world-renowned Jaya International Design. Just staring at the outside of the building it looks stylish enough, but step inside and you’ll find swishy guest rooms and suites, the Reading Room, Singapore’s first saltwater relaxation pool, fitness center, Patina Spa, a ballroom, a signature restaurant and bar and a world-class art collection. Rooms come with complimentary wi-fi, flat-screen TVs, iPads and, tea collections and Nespresso machines, and don’t say we told you, but rumour has it there are personal assistants and massage rooms in some suites. When can we move in?
