JW Marriott Singapore South Beach opens to holidaymakers near Marina Bay

Marriott International has announced the opening of its first JW Marriott-branded hotel in Singapore. JW Marriott Singapore South Beach is situated close to the Marina Bay district.

The luxury new-build hotel has incorporated the 1930’s Drill Hall, which was once the base of the Singapore Armed Forces. With interiors designed by architect Phillippe Starck, the hotel is also home to 30 pieces of art, including a 23-foot-high video wall installation that features work by South Korean artist Lee Lee Nam.

The property, which is part of a mixed-use complex, was previously self-managed by South Beach Consortium, but the company decided to bring in a hotel operator to run it. Marriott International has added a lavish spa to the hotel with 10 treatment rooms, which is scheduled to open to guests in the next couple of months.

Ms Christy Donato, the Vice-President of Global Brand Management for JW Marriott Hotels and Resorts, explained:

"With (French designer) Philippe Starck designing the property, it already came with a distinct point of view,”

she added:

 “But we elevated it by marrying the JW focus on service and programming, such as the spa."

The 634 guest rooms and suites are spread over two buildings – the East and South Towers. Accommodation features include air conditioning, mini-fridges, coffee makers, work desks, and marble bathrooms with plush robes and slippers.

JW Marriott Singapore South Beach will have a total nine restaurants and bars, five of which are already open to guests. These include Beach Road Kitchen with live chef stations, the Court Martial Bar with hand-crafted cocktails, the gastropub Media Bar, the gin and cocktail bar Tonic, and the modern Japanese restaurant, Akira Back.

For travellers who want to keep fit, there’s a modern fitness centre, an outdoor swimming pool and a jogging trail. When it opens, this year, the spa will have saunas, steam rooms, plunge pools, and its 10 treatment rooms will include two private pods and two express treatment pods. There are also two sky gardens where guests relax with drinks.

Tourists will be located close to Shenton Way Central Business District and Marina Bay with its restaurants, art galleries, theatres, bars and nightclubs. Guests can enjoy games of golf at nearby golf courses, and attractions such as the Singapore Flyer, Arab Street, Merlion Park, and Gardens by the Bay.
