A Brand New Look That Is Exceptionally Singapore at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

Come discover Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s reimagined space for an Exceptionally Singapore experience steeped in luxury, modernity and heritage.

After an extensive six-month transformation, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore reopened its doors to the public on 8 September 2023. With a focus on delivering an “Exceptionally Singapore” experience for visitors and locals, the award-winning hotel’s redesign of its common lounge areas, dining establishments, rooms and suites, and beyond, was done with the city-state’s nature, cultural heritage and architectural traditions in mind.

Located in the heart of Marina Bay, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is loved for its easy access to the city’s sophisticated public transportation, famed Orchard Road stretch and iconic must-see sites. The luxury hotel is also loved for its award-winning MO BAR, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore and the exclusive members lounge HAUS 65, along with its opulent rooms and suites, and banquet facilities.

Signature Singaporean Elements at Every Corner For an Exceptionally Singapore Experience

With a desire to deliver a truly unique hospitality encounter that allows their guests to experience the true essence of Singapore and its local culture and heritage, Principal Designer Jeffrey Wilkes of internationally-acclaimed interior design firm DESIGNWILKES breathed new life to the hotel’s classic interiors through the use of colour and inspiration from signature Singapore elements, such as Peranakan style architecture, black and white houses, Angsana trees, and even down to the intricate details found in traditional shophouses.

These uniquely Singapore elements were cleverly weaved into the modern and sleek architectural and aesthetic design of the hotel to create a contemporary and welcoming space for everyone who walks through its doors. The rejuvenated lobby, bathed in natural light and bright colours, beckons and welcomes, while the majestic crystal spheres of Vanda Joaquim orchids above the Lobby Lounge pay tribute to Singapore’s national flower.

Uniquely Designed Rooms and Suites for A Luxurious Stay

“Every corner of the hotel tells a story, from Singapore’s lush landscapes to the intricate details found in traditional shophouses,” Mr Wilkes says. While the hotel’s public spaces welcome its guests with distinctive Singapore features, the hotel’s 510 luxurious rooms and suites were designed to reflect the view outside their windows, blurring the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. “We wanted guests not just to be visiting the city, but to feel a part of it,” he elaborates excitedly.

Rooms facing the glistening waters of Marina Bay feature dappled batik patterns and a cooler colour palette while those overlooking the South China Sea are bathed in warm tones reminiscent of the morning sun. Meanwhile, city-facing rooms are furnished with lush botanical prints akin to Singapore’s lush greenery. With three interesting room aesthetics, tourists and locals can now choose their rooms based on the view and interior they want to experience during their stay.

For the ultimate luxury, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s 42 suites, including the newly debuted Presidential Suite and four-bedroom Royal Marina Bay Penthouse, are a dream come true. With panoramic views of the South China Sea and Marina Bay, the Presidential Suite and Penthouse features expansive balconies, spacious living and dining areas, and even a fully equipped chef’s kitchen for private dinners in the Penthouse.
