THE INDUSTRY BUILDER LOH LIK PENG, FOUNDER AND CEO, UNLISTED COLLECTION
BLAZING THE TRAIL
The bright practitioner of law left the bar to join the hospitality industry, and he has since became one of Singapore’s most dynamic hoteliers and restaurateurs. The Unlisted Collection, which started in 2006, has since collated an award-winning portfolio of establishments that span five countries. These hotels and restaurants are often situated in heritage-listed buildings that have been transformed into boutique lifestyle spots that promise an unforgettable experience.
Loh’s proven track record can be best seen back home, where he boasts an impressive resume of restaurants. The portfolio commands a respectable six Michelin stars, courtesy of Cheek Bistro, Burnt Ends, Nouri, Basque Kitchen by Aitor, and the two-starred Restaurant Zen. Loh is also deeply involved in the development of Singapore’s hospitality and tourism industry, holding numerous positions with the Urban Redevelopment Authority, National Heritage Board, and the Singapore Land Authority. As always, Loh is driven by a passion for furthering the guest experience, and will undoubtedly continue to develop future radical, cutting-edge concepts.
