Le Meridien Makes Singapore Return

Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Le Meridien brand has made its return to Singapore. The design-focused brand takes over the former Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa, rebranding it as the Le Meridien Singapore Sentosa, its first property in the Southeast Asian city-state after a hiatus of nearly a decade.

Situated on the central part of the resort island of Sentosa, the 191-room hotel is opposite the Imbiah Station of the Sentosa Express monorail to the mainland and enjoys convenient road links to the rest of Singapore. A juxtaposition of the old and new, Singapore-based DP Architects and Japanese studio Super Potato were responsible for the restoration of the property’s former military barracks (which housed Southeast Asia’s first Malay artillery regiment) and the addition of a contemporary wing.

The hotel features 191 contemporary guestrooms and suites, with the latter featuring Japanese outdoor private Onsen pools. Each is furnished with comfortable bedding, a marble bathroom with separate bathtub and shower, flatscreen television, high-speed Internet access, work desk, minibar and coffee-maker. Discerning guests staying in the duplex penthouse suite can avail of a private rooftop garden and infinity pool.

An upcoming renovation will refresh Le Meridien Singapore Sentosa’s dining offerings. When completed, Latest Recipe will offer a mix of international and local flavours, with delicatessen Eclair paying homage to the brand’s French origins. The renovation will also introduce the Le Meridien Hub, a reintepretation of the traditional hotel lobby and the venue for the ‘Le Meridien Sparkling’ cocktail programme.

Other general facilities include 243 square metres of versatile function space, headlined by a 198-square metre pillarless ballroom fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows. Leisure guests also enjoy use of the property’s outdoor swimming pool and fitness centre.

Le Meridien Singapore Sentosa becomes the fifth Starwood property in Singapore, joining The St. Regis Singapore, W Singapore Sentosa Cove, The Westin Singapore and Sheraton Towers Singapore. Globally, the brand has seen steady growth since its acquisition by Starwood in 2005, increasing its footprint both in North America and Asia Pacific by 25 per cent and a presence in 37 countries, with more than 30 hotels in the pipeline over next four years.
