Our latest spectacular Project of the Week will be a striking vertical oasis in the heart of Singapore when it opens mid next year.

Hong Kong-based Artyzen Hospitality Group’s first Singaporean site, Artyzen Singapore, is designed to be a fresh interpretation of luxury, inspired by the city state’s culture, colours and flavours.

Local inspiration

Located in the prestigious Orchard neighbourhood, the hotel will bring the local Peranakan culture into its design in partnership with Singapore’s own Ong&Ong Pty Ltd architects alongside Australia-based interior designer firm Nicholas Graham & Associates.

The site of this contemporary hotel was once named Villa Marie, the sprawling tropical-garden mansion of the grandson of Singapore philanthropist Tan Tock Seng.

Accommodation and wellness

Eight of the 142 keys will be suites, with all guestrooms designed to be modern and colourful. Every suite features large landscaped green terraces complete with a sun deck and outdoor furnishing. Barrel-vaulted entry corridors, lofty interiors with ceiling fans, private balconies, and special art pieces honour the Straits’ past. 

A dedicated workout and wellness floor will house a fitness centre and gym, yoga studio, and garden themed spa with treatment rooms.

Crowning glory

Reaching 20 storeys high, the hotel’s crowning glory will be The Roof Garden on its top floor. The private social destination will serve drinks and snacks in Orchard Road’s newest rooftop bar within a ‘sunken lounge’ and the standout feature will be the ‘floating pool’, a 25-metre cantilevered infinity pool with a partially transparent base.

Other dining options include Quenino by Victor Liong restaurant, interpreting Peranakan-based cuisine, while Café Quenino will offer drinks and light bites throughout the day; each evening, resident mixologists will create cocktails crafted with ingredients from the hotel’s herb and spice garden.

Reinvent key elements

When the project was first announced in 2019, Artyzen Hospitality Group’s then president, Robbert van der Maas, commented: “It is important for us to partner with designers and architects that can ensure that we deliver on our vision of creating culturally rewarding and nuanced experiences to our guests. We chose to work with Ong&Ong and Nic Graham because they share our passion to reflect Singapore’s unique environment and culture, and to reinvent key elements from the rich Peranakan culture and history into the building, interior design, and our service philosophy.”

He went on to say that the group has longer term plans to grow its global footprint, adding: “We believe there is a strong opportunity to lead the hospitality industry in developing hotels that are rooted in local cultures to meet the forever evolving demands and preferences for both business and leisure travellers.”

The firm’s current pipeline includes Chinese projects such as Artyzen Chongqing Yuelai and Artyzen Habitat Taopu Shanghai.
