SGD 35 Million Refurbishment Redefines Luxury Hotel in Singapore

Iconic Hotel Reaches Milestone With Completion of Impressive Renovation

SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - Jun 8, 2012) - A fresh and contemporary new look has been bestowed on one of Singapore's most sophisticated luxury hotels, bringing a new meaning to opulence among the city's leading luxury accommodations.

Recently completing a SGD 35 million refurbishment beneath its iconic green pagoda on Orchard Road; the Singapore Marriott Hotel is now welcoming guests with an extended choice of rooms, all boasting tastefully classic designs with the latest in contemporary furnishings, state-of-the-art technology and pampering amenities.

The completion of this project "is a major milestone and we look forward to the next chapter of growth as Singapore's premier address," said Mr. Thoo Kah Fah, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director of Tang Holdings, the organization funding the project, which was completed by the world renowned design team of Hirsch Bedner Associates.

The most extensive refurbishment in the 17-year history of this prime choice among hotels near Suntec and other prominent destinations, guest rooms in the Singapore Marriott have been redesigned to provide guests the most efficient use of space with completely redesigned bathrooms and ergonomically optimized furnishings. Large walk-in rain showers along with more vanity space, two classic 1956 leather Eames desk chairs and 46-inch Samsung Full-HD Smart TVs are among the many new features.

Since its opening in 1995, the Singapore Marriott has received many awards and accolades for providing travelers with the 5-star experience expected from the Marriott brand. In addition to guest rooms, the hotel's lobby has been given a bold new look with its conversion to a warm and welcoming area, and the Marriott Cafe now features extended seating and an open kitchen block for an exciting and tasteful dining experience. Boasting the culinary skills of 10 of Singapore's finest chefs, Marriott Cafe offers International fare throughout the day. As part of the renovation the hotel has added a new venue to its selection of restaurants in Singapore, introducing the Java+, a premium retail deli outlet offering high quality cured meats, cheeses and fine wines from around the world.

Designed to meet the needs of the most discerning traveler, the Singapore Marriott has positioned itself to be the city's premier travel destination. In addition, the hotel's expansive event space makes it an ideal choice among business venues, offering meeting room rental in Singapore that includes nearly 16,000 square feet of high-tech meeting space and ample room for on-site exhibition, grand social affairs or elegant wedding receptions. Offering full service catering, dedicated event managers and the services of a Singapore wedding planner, the Marriott offers distinctive packages to meet the needs of nearly any occasion.
