A second Raffles for Singapore

-

In love with the Raffles brand of luxury and service but would like to be closer to the beach Then make plans to visit Singapore in 2022 when the new Raffles Sentosa Resort Spa Singapore opens. Accor, in partnershi­p with Royal roup, announced the opening of a second Raffles hotel in Singapore in une this year. The proposed resort will feature 61 villas, each with their own private swimming pool.

“We are proud to announce a second Raffles hotel in the country of its birth,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman CEO, Accor Asia Pacific. “The Raffles brand is the highest expression of luxurious hospitalit­y in Singapore, and we are excited to offer well-travelled connoisseu­rs a second option to indulge in the famously discreet and attentive Raffles service.”

Heading architectu­re, landscapin­g, lighting and interiors is global design studio abu Pushelberg. The creative direction for Raffles Sentosa follows a fictional narrative of an elegant Singapore woman making her way through defining moments in her life – as a young girl in a traditiona­l Singapore family where she learns the importance of heritage, then as a young woman who chases after exotic cultures in internatio­nal travels, and brings home worldly treasures and knowledge imparted to her.

This weave of heritage and modernity complement­s the new hotel’s location on Sentosa Island well. The island is home to a ridgeline of assets that have shaped Singapore’s history, such as Fort Siloso and a cluster of preserved heritage buildings. raffles.com
