Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has announced the soft opening of the Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa, its first property in Singapore, and is earmarking the hotel’s grand launch for the fourth quarter of the year.
Located in the heart of Sentosa, the five-star hotel depicts the colonial history and contemporary ethos of the country in interiors designed by Japanese firm Super Potato.
The hotel’s facilities are spread out over two distinct wings, the traditional Heritage wing with a colonial heritage dating back to the 1940s and the new Contemporary wing providing upscale accommodation.
The initial phase sees the opening of the contemporary wing, which contains rooms and suites, dining and entertainment options and meetings and conference facilities.
This modern section has 105 Deluxe guestrooms. It will also feature 19 Onsen Suites, three Executive Suites and two Penthouse Suites, which will open throughout 2011. The Onsen suites will each feature a Japanese-style hot tub set in a tranquil outdoor sanctuary, while the Penthouse Suites will offer private rooftop pools.
The hotel’s current dining options include Library, a lounge area where guests can partake of snacks and refreshments in comfortable surroundings; and the Tea Lounge, serving breakfast and an international menu.
“We are thrilled to be entering the Singapore market. By creating a unique hotel that manages to look to the future while respecting the past at the same time, we’re able to provide something for everyone,” says Andreas Mattmueller, chief operating officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Asia.
The upcoming fully renovated Heritage building, set to open towards the end of 2011, will complement the existing facilities with 61 spacious rooms and suites and dining options.
The Heritage wing will include an all-day dining restaurant, a Whisky Bar and a Cigar Lounge. In addition, the hotel’s private-dining concept will allow guests to enjoy tailor-made menus.
Guests can walk to the Resorts World Sentosa featuring Universal Studios and the casino, while those looking to get out and about can jump on the Sentosa Express, with Imbiah station located directly opposite the hotel.
On completion, both old and new wings will complement each other to create a five-star upscale lifestyle hotel, according to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
