Construction Year Why Stay?
1900 Goodwood Park may not receive the same hype as the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, but it is a quality heritage property that boasts an unbeatable location.
The five-star heritage building started off as the Teutonia Club – an elite enclave for German expatriates in Singapore. In 1918, it was purchased and renamed as Goodwood Hall, and in 1922 it was registered as a restaurant-café-entertainment establishment, with performances by world renowned ballerina Anna Pavlova. The building became a hotel in 1929, a status it regained following a brief stint as a military residence during World War II.
Originally designed by R.A.J. Bidwell of Swan and Maclaren – one of Singapore’s oldest architectural firms – the Goodwood Park Hotel has a striking Victorian look, complete with a turret. It was also the first hotel in Singapore to have a swimming pool.
Unlike many heritage hotels that are situated off the beaten path, Goodwood Park Hotel is located in the city center. However, it is surrounded by lush landscaped gardens, which evoke the feeling of a quiet retreat.
Complimentary wired and wireless Internet access, two outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center, spa services, five restaurants, a bar, a deli, and banquet and meeting venues.
