Accor Hotels Group announced Singapore’s first Mondrian hotel will be built in the heart of the city’s prominent Duxton Hill neighborhood, set to open in early 2023. The news comes on the heels of Accor’s recent announcement regarding its planned venture with Ennismore, which brings together Ennismore’s know-how in building brands with creative storytelling, design and authentic experiences, with Accor’s wealth of knowledge in delivering scale, network growth and distribution.
Mondrian Singapore Duxton, a luxury lifestyle hotel, offers 300 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant, lounge and rooftop bar combining historic architecture from Singapore’s centuries-old shophouses with a new build of modern, contemporary influences.
“We are thrilled to bring the iconic Mondrian brand to Singapore’s Duxton Hill neighborhood,” said Chadi Farhat, COO, sbe Entertainment Group. “Mondrian is a natural fit for a global destination like Singapore. The property will provide a cultural hub of food and beverage experiences for locals and travelers alike. Mondrian Singapore will be more than a hotel; it will be a destination.”
A collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, Mondrian Singapore features a lower three-story building in a contemporary take on the famous Singapore “shophouse” building typology. This portion of the hotel features colonial-style window shutters and will include the hotel’s premier guest accommodations in loft suites. The hotel will then be expanded with a new, contemporary tower housing the majority of the hotel’s guestrooms, as well as a rooftop pool, bar and signature restaurant. The property is surrounded by terracotta-roofed shophouses, but the building is a modern contemporary interpretation of the shophouse architecture.
An urban oasis landscape deck to remind guests of their location, as Singapore is known as the “Garden City,” unites the two buildings. In addition to the rooftop pool, the hotel will also feature a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance for travelers and locals to explore.
Mondrian Singapore will further expand the brand’s luxury lifestyle experiences in Southeast Asia. The hotel’s location in the charming day-to-night Duxton Hill neighborhood of Singapore’s bustling Downtown Core District positions itself as a prime location for travelers looking to immerse themselves in local cultural explorations. Located 20 minutes from Singapore’s Changi Airport and situated within walking distance of the main business district, the property will be a draw for global travelers looking for proximity to the major transportation hub.
