Andaz Singapore furthers the brand’s mission to create inspiring, indigenous experiences that immerse guests in the local culture of each unique destination.

The hotel marks the seventeenth property for the brand and joins other Andaz hotels in global gateway cities and top resort destinations around the world. Located at the heart of cultural crossroads, where Kampong Glam, Little India and the Bras Basah Bugis arts and entertainment hub meet, the hotel draws inspiration from its lively surroundings – intimate alleyways filled with shop houses in vibrant colours and textures – and weaves this ambience into the hotel to offer guests fresh perspectives of the city. “We are extremely excited to open Andaz Singapore and to bring the inspirational and creative Andaz brand to Southeast Asia,” said General Manager Olivier Lenoir. “By bringing in the local spirit of our surrounding neighbourhoods and offering fresh perspectives, Andaz Singapore aims to inspire a sense of discovery.”

Andaz Singapore opens in DUO, a striking pair of concave skyscrapers, 186 and 170 metres 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 now 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 modern cultural discovery, which embraces Singapore’s urban spirit. Fu observed the hotel’s dynamic location and its neighbourhood to create a dreamscape of passageways 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. The hotel houses 342 contemporary guestrooms, including 26 suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing stunning views of the city. As with all Andaz hotels, all in-house 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, plus access to the Andaz Lounge Hour from 5 to 7 p.m. daily; which serves complimentary wines and Andaz Pale Ale. 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 “shop houses” 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 Andaz Chendol Popsicle from Icehaus; 665°F, specializing in premium meat and sustainable seafood; and Mr Stork, a rooftop bar offering teepee-hut seating and a breath-taking 360-degree view of the city.
