IFA Hotels & Resorts expands its Yotel Brand into Asia
Singapore will be Home to New City Centre Location
The revolutionary hotel concept can now add Singapore to its existing footprint, which already encompasses airport hotels in London Heathrow, Gatwick, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and a 669-cabin city-centre property, two blocks west of Times Square in New York City.
Scheduled to open in 2018, the 600-cabin YOTEL Singapore will be located at 360 Orchard Road, in the heart of the vibrant city, making it perfect for both business and leisure visitors to Singapore. A management agreement for the property has been signed with Yat Yuen Hong Company Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Fok Corporation Limited.
The Singapore hotel will have YOTEL’s signature elements of its flagship ‘city’ properties and will include a Club Lounge space with ‘Club cabins’ that double up as meeting and work spaces during the day, transforming to a restaurant/bar space in the evenings and weekends, and a large outdoor terrace space with a pool and a gym.
Whether or not YOTEL Singapore will choose to replicate ‘YOBOT’ – the now infamous ‘world’s first’ luggage storing robot, which has become an attraction in its own right and is a permanent feature at YOTEL New York, is yet to be decided.
