The opening of Andaz Singapore marks the seventeenth property for the brand and joins other Andaz hotels in global gateway cities and top resort destinations around the world. We are big fans of the Hyatt Andaz brand and have reviewed Andaz Tokyo, the Andaz Papagayo and the Andaz 5th Avenue.
If you decide to book any Andaz and Hyatt hotels, it is worth doing so via our luxury travel concierge to benefit from complimentary upgrades, breakfasts and more.
The brand new Andaz Singapore houses 342 contemporary guestrooms, including 26 suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing stunning views of the city.
Located at the heart of cultural crossroads, where Kampong Glam, Little India and the Bras Basah Bugis arts and entertainment hub meet, the locally inspired boutique hotel draws inspiration from its lively surroundings; intimate alleyways filled with shophouses in vibrant colors and textures and weaves this ambiance into the hotel to offer guests fresh perspectives of the city. The hotel is a short 20-minute drive from Changi Airport and only a five-minute drive to Singapore’s Central Business District.
Andaz Singapore opens in DUO, a striking pair of concave skyscrapers, 186 and 170 meters high, clad in a latticework of hexagonal windows. Designed by multi-award-winning German architect Ole Scheeren, renowned for his works with the China Central Television Headquarters in Beijing and Prada Epicenters in New York and Los Angeles, DUO is the largest integrated development in the Ophir-Rochor district and comprises of residences, retail spaces, offices, and the new Andaz Singapore hotel. DUO is directly connected to Bugis MRT station via underground pedestrian walkways, providing easy access to all corners of the city.
Andaz Singapore, in collaboration with famed interior designer Andre Fu of AFSO, envisioned the hotel as a contemporary lifestyle destination, which embraces Singapore’s urban spirit. Fu observed the hotel’s dynamic location and its neighborhood to create a multi-layered alleyway and incorporated subtle, locally inspired techniques, decorative details, furniture, art, and fabric into the hotel’s design.
A number of acclaimed artworks are showcased in the hotel; color-saturated pieces by Brazilian sculptor André Mendes and other remarkable works from local Singaporean artist Ahmad Abu Bakar, New York-based Filipina artist Monica Delgado and Malaysian artist Fauzulyusri Mohd Yusof.
As with all Andaz hotels, guests can enjoy a complimentary minibar with locally sourced snacks and non-alcoholic drinks that are replenished daily, complimentary Wi-Fi, and all-day complimentary refreshments at Sunroom.
Visitors have a wide variety of food and beverage options to choose from. Alley on 25 brings Singapore street dining to hotel guests by offering seven alleyway “shophouses” on one floor, from a platter of barbecued snacks from Smoke & Pepper to a steaming bowl of noodles from Auntie’s Wok & Steam or a refreshing shaved ice from Icehaus; 665°F, specializing in premium meat and sustainable seafood; and Mr. Stork, a rooftop bar offering teepee-hut seating and an observatory corner to enjoy a breath-taking 360-degree view of the city.
Right now they have a very good deal with 20 percent off all guestrooms and an additional 3,000 World of Hyatt bonus points (per stay, with a minimum of two nights booked). It is worth noting that this is not the only bargain about. Check out our article about $7 USD flights, fare errors and the latest travel freebies.
