Accor has announced plans for Singapore’s first Mondrian hotel, set to open in early 2023. 

Developed by Craig Road Property Holdings, Mondrian Singapore will comprise 300 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge and a rooftop bar overlooking the Duxton Hill neighbourhood of Singapore’s Downtown Core District.

A collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, the project will feature a lower three-story building in a contemporary take on the famous Singapore ‘shophouse’ building typology. This portion of the hotel features a terracotta roof and colonial-style window shutters and will include the hotel’s premier guest accommodations in loft suites. 

The hotel will then be expanded with a new, contemporary tower housing the majority of the hotel’s guest rooms as well as a rooftop pool and bar and signature restaurant. 

The two buildings will be united by an urban oasis landscape deck to remind guests of their location, as Singapore is known as the “Garden City.” In addition to the rooftop pool, the hotel will also feature a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance for travellers and locals to explore. 

sbe subsidiary Dakota Development, led by President Joe Faust, will provide design management services for the project.

“Mondrian is a natural fit for a global destination like Singapore,” says Chadi Farhat, Chief Operating Officer of sbe. “The property will provide a cultural hub of food and beverage experiences for locals and travellers alike. Mondrian Singapore will be more than a hotel; it will be a destination.”

“We are excited to debut the Mondrian brand in South East Asia and Singapore with our partner Accor,” comments Sun You Ning, Director, Craig Road Property Holdings. “Mondrian Singapore will provide guests an opportunity to stay in the heart of Duxton Hill, a vibrant heritage conservation area surrounded by Michelin-starred eateries, award winning bars, and iconic retail stores – all within walking distance to the Central Business District.”

Mondrian Singapore is one of several new Mondrian properties that Accor plans to open globally and will be one of the first to open in early 2023 in its next phase of expansion following Accor’s acquisition of sbe’s hotel brands. 

It follows the company’s recent announcement of Mondrian Gold Coast opening in 2023 and the upcoming opening of Mondrian Shoreditch London in Q2 2021 and Mondrian Bordeaux and Mondrian Cannes in France in 2022.
