The Sofitel Singapore City Centre will open its doors in October 2017 as the 800th Accor hotel in Asia Pacific and 13th Accor hotel in Singapore. Located at the upper floors of Singapore’s tallest building (Guoco Tower), the 223-room luxury hotel will be located just steps away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station.
The lobby will be dominated by the shimmering Singapour Je T’aime, a stunning nine-metre chandelier designed by Lasvit. This is complemented by an outstanding collection of custom-made furniture and artworks including designer uniforms accentuated with floral prints, evoking the strong botanic theme that runs throughout the hotel. The hotel’s interiors elegantly juxtapose vibrant rose gold accents with striking design features and botanical motifs, inspired by the sublime geometry of a traditional jardin à la française and the rich green spaces of Singapore, also known as the Garden City.
The 223 well-appointed rooms and suites at Sofitel Singapore City Centre feature floor to ceiling windows; complimentary minibars serviced by the hotel’s very own droid butler – Sophie The Robot; Sofitel’s luxurious MyBed; a Handy Phone which provides access to free local and international calls to 10 countries and wifi on the go; Smart TVs and Bose Sound systems; large soaking tubs with separate rain showers and luxurious Lanvin or Hermes amenities.
In terms of food and beverage, Sofitel Singapore City Centre will have several dining outlets including Racines, helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Jean-Charles Dubois, which will offer both French and Chinese cuisines prepared by two distinct culinary brigades across four open kitchens for a truly interactive culinary experience.
Following the tradition of barrel-aged cocktail-making and the simple sophistication of martinis, 1864 (homage to the foundation year of Tanjong Pagar’s docking industry) aims to provide the perfect after-work vibe. This bar will also be the home for the timeless ritual of Champagne sabering. Guests can enjoy Sofitel’s signature afternoon Hi-Tea and handcrafted gourmet bites and tapas throughout the day.
Sofitel Singapore City Centre will come with a club lounge called the Club Millésime which will include breakfast, evening cocktails and canapes, a library, intimate meeting spaces and a butler service.
In addition to its own SoFit gym, Club floor guests can enjoy access to the adjacent Virgin Active Fitness Club – Tanjong Pagar which will offer a range of wellness programs. A specially-designed In-Room Fitness Kit complemented with a series of workout videos is available in all rooms and guests can also enjoy the 30m infinity pool and spacious Lawn for rejuvenating morning yoga. Guests looking for a holistic spa experience will be pampered at SoSpa located at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa.
