Six-star stopover hotel set to open in Singapore

New six-star hotel brand Patina Hotels & Resorts will open its flagship hotel in Singapore this September. The new 157-room Patina Capitol Singapore will be housed in the city’s historic Capitol building and adjoining Stamford House. It will be the focal point of the multi-million pound redevelopment of the landmark colonial-era buildings, which will also include a theatre, shops and luxury apartments.

The new ultra-luxury hotel, which has already been included among the Leading Hotels of the World collection, will offer 24-hour stopover stays catering to the city’s many on-bound visitors. As part of its highly-personalised service, all staff will be brand ambassadors doubling as concierges and sharing their knowledge with guests, whether that’s a skill such as oriental calligraphy or a recommendation for somewhere suitable to eat.

Set in the heart of Singapore’s downtown civic and cultural district, the Capitol building has been restored by Pritzker Architecture Prize-winner, Richard Meier, and the new hotel will blend its heritage architecture with contemporary interiors and state-of-the-art technology. Period features such as high ceilings and arched windows have been conserved, while world-renowned interior designer Jaya International has added luxurious modern touches. A world-class art collection will be exhibited throughout the hotel.

Its guest rooms and suites will feature novel amenities such as a centralised control system operated via two in-room Ipads, Apple TVs, a surround-sound system and a Nespresso machine. Guests can also expect luxury details such as premium quality bed linen and boutique Aesop bath products. Outgoing calls, high-speed Wi-Fi and a well-stocked minibar are all included in the room price. The hotel’s high-end leisure facilities will include a saltwater relaxation pool, a colonial library-style reading room, a signature restaurant and bar, state-of-the-art fitness centre and an intimate ballroom. Rooms start at £220.92 per night, suites from £288.23, while 24-hour stays cost from £339.69.

Patina Hotels & Resorts’ chief executive officer, Marc Dardenne, further elaborated on the new hotel's luxury services and connection to culture;

"Patina Hotels & Resorts is a new global luxury lifestyle brand that is set to be a strong contender in the luxury travel industry,”

“We effectively combine the hardware with the ‘heartware’, emphasising a strong sense of place, highly personalised one-to-one intuitive service with distinctive architecture and a passion for intricate details, art and culture, which we intend to share with our guests."

The hotel is managed by Pontiac Land Group, which is ran by the Kwee family from Singapore who also own Capella, the Conrad, the Regent and the Ritz-Carlton hotels. This will be Patina’s first and flagship hotel as the brand prepares to further develop the brand in China, the Maldives, the Middle East and South-east Asia.

Pontiac Land Group’s director, Melissa Kwee, said;

"Recently admitted as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, we are happy to note that our new hotel, along with Capella Singapore, are the only two members represented in The Leading Hotels of the World in Singapore,”

“We are excited about this new chapter in Capitol's history and we look forward to welcoming everyone at our opening."
