There’ll be a new luxury hotel in Duxton come 2023. Leading hospitality group Accor has revealed that Singapore’s first hotel of the Mondrian brand will be built in the vibrant Duxton Hill neighborhood and is slated to open in early 2023. It is being developed by Craig Road Property Holdings.
Surrounded by Michelin-starred eateries, award-winning bars, and iconic retail stores, it’s situated 20 minutes away from Changi Airport and within walking distance to the major business district.
The luxury lifestyle hotel will be home to 300 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge and a rooftop bar, marrying historic architecture from Singapore’s centuries-old shophouses together with contemporary influences.
A collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, Mondrian Singapore will feature a lower three-story building that takes Singapore’s prevalent ‘shophouse’ building typology on a modern spin.
Here, you can expect to see a terracotta roof and colonial-style window shutters, and it’ll also include the hotel’s premier guest accommodations in loft suites. The majority of the hotel’s other guestrooms, as well as rooftop pool, a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance, and signature restaurant, will be located in the expanded, new contemporary tower.
An urban oasis landscape deck, a nod to Singapore’s reputation as a ‘Garden City’, will bridge the two buildings.
Chadi Farhat, Chief Operating Officer of SBE Entertainment Group (acquired by Accor) said: “We are thrilled to bring the iconic Mondrian brand to Singapore’s Duxton Hill neighborhood. 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.”
The Accor Group currently operates around 5,000 hotels and residences around the globe. These include luxury chains in Singapore such as Raffles and Sofitel, as well as budget brands like Ibis.
