Travel news from around the world


Despite the pandemic, the hospitality industry has remained resilient with a flurry of new openings coming up; hotel operators have also taken this opportunity to refresh their rooms. This is likely driven by demand for domestic staycations, as well as confidence in the recovery of the industry, which is expected to be even more robust in the future due to a pent-up desire to travel.

Several new hotels are looking to make their mark in Singapore come 2022 and 2023. Here, we’ve gathered some exciting hotel openings to anticipate; 2022 can’t come soon enough!

Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore
The second Raffles hotel in Singapore is set to open its doors in 2022, more than a century after the iconic national monument first opened in 1887 at Beach Road. Managed by its parent hospitality group Accor, the upcoming Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore will feature 61 villas spread across 100,000sqm of verdant tropical gardens.

The resort is set to become the first villa-only hotel in Singapore. Acclaimed international design firm Yabu Pushelberg helmed the design of the resort, carefully crafting the landscaping, lighting and interiors of the idyllic destination. Villas will range in size between 260sqm for one-bedroom villas to 450sqm for four-bedroom villas; each exclusive room will feature a private swimming pool and terrace area that’s shrouded by nature to provide privacy and comfort. Other facilities to expect include a bar, restaurants, a fitness centre and several meeting rooms.

Pan Pacific Orchard

Located conveniently along the stretch of the Orchard Road shopping belt, Pan Pacific Orchard will make its highly-anticipated opening in 2022. This upcoming tropical skyrise will be designed with an eco-conscious approach by local firm WOHA, and it’s set to become a green paradise amidst an urban landscape.

The zero-waste hotel will feature four special levels dedicated to verdant gardens and lush greenery. Besides the sky terraces, the hotel also offers 350 rooms, a gym, swimming pool, bars and restaurants and an exclusive club lounge. Other sustainable elements in the building include a rainwater harvesting system, a recyclable water system, and a compactor that turns food waste into compost, which will eventually be used as fertiliser for the hotel’s sky gardens.

Artyzen Cuscaden

The first Artyzen hotel from Hong Kong-based international hotel group Artyzen Hospitality is slated to welcome guests in 2022. As its name suggests, the new hotel is located along Cuscaden Road and right in the middle of the bustling Orchard shopping district.

Designed by homegrown architect firm Ong&Ong and Australia-based interior design firm Nicholas Graham & Associates, the 20-storey skyscraper features 142 tastefully designed rooms, eight of which are exclusive suites. Each room is designed with a handsome mix of furnishings in warm tones. The hotel will also feature restaurants that feature Peranakan-inspired cuisines, a garden-themed spa, and a rooftop swimming pool where one can admire the scenic city views.

Voco Orchard Singapore

The first Voco hotel in Southeast Asia will open in January 2022 following a rebrand from Hilton Singapore in Orchard Road. InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), which helms the premium hotel chain, announced in June 2021 that the company has signed a partnership with Hilton Singapore to reflag the space as part of IHG’s global expansion.

The 423-room hotel will be designed as a contemporary and inviting space with colourful interiors that exude a cheery atmosphere. With 12 meeting rooms across more than 1,750 sqm, the hotel is also the perfect space to host company events, weddings, and other special occasions.

Pullman Singapore

Another Accor hotel on this list that will be making its debut in 2022 is Singapore’s first Pullman Hotel. Located at Hill Street near Fort Canning, the five-star hotel is developed by EL Development.

The 342-room hotel will be designed in accordance with the international luxury hotel chain’s “work hard, play hard” motto. A reflection of the hotel’s dual concept that offers spaces for both business and leisure, the building will feature executive lounges with sweeping views of the Singapore River and St Andrew’s Cathedral, meeting rooms, a rooftop bar, and a health and fitness centre. Other smart features will also be integrated throughout the hotel to meet the demands of the discerning digital traveller.

The Singapore Edition

Conceived by American hotelier Ian Schrager in partnership with hospitality giant Marriott International, Edition Hotels combine personalised, intimate experiences with the global reach and operational expertise of Marriott. The first Edition hotel will open on our island in 2022, following a delayed opening due to the pandemic.

Located on the former Boulevard Hotel site on Orchard Boulevard, the eight-storey boutique hotel will feature 190 guest rooms. As per all Edition Hotels, each room will be elegantly designed with a sophisticated flair. The overall hotel design will also highlight Singapore’s expertise at merging technology with the arts by infusing futuristic art-like elements throughout the space.

Mondrian Singapore

Singapore’s first Mondrian hotel will make its debut in 2023. A premium hotel brand managed by the Accor group, Mondrian hotels are set in dynamic cultural enclaves around the world. Mondrian Singapore is situated in the heart of the vibrant Duxton Hill neighbourhood.

Developed by Craig Road Property Holdings, the hotel will feature 300 guest rooms and suites housed across several heritage shophouses. DP Architects and Studio Carter will work together to design the three-storey property and infuse it with a contemporary twist alongside heritage-inspired design elements. Other standout highlights in the works within the hotel include restaurants, a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance, and a rooftop pool.
