A hatrick of new hotels for Singapore

The Lion City is roaring ahead with three exciting new hotel openings this year.

Mercure Singapore Tyrwhitt

Mercure Singapore Tyrwhitt is a family hotel in the cultural heart of Singapore.

The international hotel brand Accor has opened Mercure Singapore Tyrwhitt in the city’s heritage district.

This is a rebranded property and ideal for those searching for a spot of culture in the Lion City. The family-friendly hotel is located on Tyrwhitt Road with its colourful shop houses, coffee shops and boutique cafés and is positioning itself as a locally-inspired hotel at a wallet-friendly price point (rooms start at S$180 per night). It’s also conveniently located walking distance from Bendemeer MRT station and close to Little India.

The hotel building is in the style of the art deco hardware stores and industrial workshops of the 1950s and offers 270 rooms in classic, twin, double and family configurations. All rooms come with water dispensers, smart tv and high-speed Wifi and balcony rooms have a veranda with a swing seat. Mercure Privilege Rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows and options for family room set-ups; some also come with converted loft space.

Facilities include a rooftop pool with a kids’ wading area and fountain along with a fitness centre. Guests can access Applause restaurant for all-day dining, while Tyrwhitt Little Café serves freshly brewed coffee and tea and light bites.

This is Mercure’s third Singapore hotel and Accor’s 28th property in the city.

Mondrian Singapore Duxton

Another Accor property, Mondrian Singapore Duxton opens its doors next month in Singapore’s trendy Duxton Hill neighbourhood.

Harnessing an ‘art-forward cool’ mantra, Los Angeles-based Studio Carter has led the design which is based on a ‘deconstructed shophouse chic’ philosophy.

Guests will be thrust into the heart of the action from the moment they arrive, with the main hotel restaurant and bar taking centre stage in the lobby. World-leading Italian butcher Dario Cecchini will preside over the dining space, Bottega di Carna, a modern Italian restaurant with a touch of Tuscany. Prime cuts of meat take pride of place on the menu.

The property has 302 rooms with multi-disciplinary artworks throughout the property featuring emerging and established Singaporean artists. Along with the restaurant, there will be a café, cocktail bar and rooftop bar.

The Jungle Ballroom cocktail bar is accessed by a secret tunnel and drinks are served from a sunken lavastone bar.

The rooftop bar channels a groovy 1970s Hollywood vibe, with poolside cabanas, glittering city views, fresh seafood and a Californian inspired menu.

Mondrian Singapore Duxton will be the group’s first property in Southeast Asia and the second in Asia Pacific, following the opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon in 2020. Mondrian will be doubling its portfolio of seven properties this year with launches planned in Bordeaux, Cannes and Australia’s Gold Coast.

Artyzen Singapore

Artyzen Singapore opens later this year.

Boutique hospitality group Artyzen has announced it has seven new openings in the pipeline this year, one of which is in Singapore.

The Asia-rooted group aims to embrace the art and culture of its destinations, with an emphasis on creating ‘meaningful’ travel experiences. The majority of its properties are in China, with two more in Hawaii. Along with Singapore, Artyzen will be opening hotels in Shanghai, Suzhou, Zhuhai and Chongqing this year. Artyzen Singapore, a flagship hotel, is slated to launch in the second half of the year.

Guests can look forward to a 142-key hotel in the city’s Orchard Road district. The hotel has a green theme and is described as a “‘luxury vertical oasis in the heart of Singapore”. There will also be a roof garden with a 25m infinity pool and sunken lounge.

“We’re proud to unveil Artyzen Hospitality Group’s new property opening pipeline, with an entry in Singapore, Suzhou, Zhuhai and Chongqing,” said Artyzen vice president Peter Wynne. “Shanghai remains our launchpad with ten properties in operation by the end of 2023. We look forward to welcoming guests to Artyzen’s Asia-rooted DNA, bringing to life our own distinct homegrown lifestyle philosophy woven into the stay experience.”
