Singapore Mondrian hotel planned for Duxton Hill


The new hotel will incorporate a blend of modern and historic architecture.


Singapore’s Duxton Hill will soon be welcoming Mondrian Singapore to the neighbourhood.


The 300-room hotel is due to open in the heritage conservation area in early 2023.


The property will boast a signature restaurant, lounge and rooftop pool and will combine historic-style architecture channelled from the neighbouring centuries-old shophouses, with “contemporary influences”.


The Mondrian brand was developed by Miami-based sbe hospitality group and, in collaboration with Accor, will now be expanding globally into Asia.


“We’re thrilled to bring the iconic Mondrian brand to Singapore’s Duxton Hill neighborhood,”said sbe boss Chadi Farhat. “The property will provide a cultural hub of food and beverage experiences for locals and travellers alike. Mondrian Singapore will be more than a hotel; it will be a destination.”


Duxton Hill is a vibrant area of the city, laden with Michelin-starred dining spaces, bars, retails stores and within walking distance of the city's central business district. It’s a part of town renowned for its historical shophouses, which date back to the early nineteenth century and designed by Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore.


The lower three-story section of the hotel will mirror the architecture of the shophouses, with a terracotta roof and colonial-style window shutters and will house the premier guest accommodation and loft suites.


A contemporary tower will include the majority of the hotel’s guest rooms, along with a rooftop pool and restaurant. The two buildings will be linked by an “urban oasis landscape deck” in a nod to Singapore’s status as Asia’s ‘Garden City’. A speakeasy bar with a concealed entrance is also planned.


Mondrian Singapore is one of a raft of new properties that Accor plans to open globally. Mondrian Gold Coast in Australia also launches in 2023; meanwhile in Europe, Mondrian Shoreditch London is slated to open in quarter two of this year and Mondrian Cannes in France is planned for 2022.


Further, yet-to-be-announced, properties are in the pipeline for the Dominican Republic, Germany, Maldives, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Thailand and Vietnam. Watch this space for details...
