[HD videos below] It was over a year ago that ASIA Travel Tips.com
first wrote of
Millennium & Copthorne’s plans for a new hotel
brand. Now the group has unveiled a few more details, including
the brand’s name - Studio M. The first Studio M hotel
is now scheduled to open in Singapore in the second
quarter of 2010.
The new hotel is located within the
vibrant Robertson Quay and Mohamed Sultan entertainment
district, which offers abundant dining and leisure
“Studio M represents a new facet to the
hospitality landscape in Singapore. The concept of smart
business travel is evolving rapidly. There is increasing
demand from this largely untapped market segment that
craves a distinctive and unique experience from their
hotel, even as they demand functional services like
wireless connectivity. Studio M aims to fill this gap,”
said Mr Kwek Leng Beng, Chairman of M&C.
Studio M Hotel has 365
distinctive rooms that will offer guests 24-hours
integrated technology and wireless connectivity. The
interiors and open-air tropical deck have been designed by
renowned Italian designer and architect Piero Lissoni
to create a sleek yet comfortable environment.
Guests will continue to enjoy integrated technology and
wireless connectivity on the open-air tropical deck.
Leisure options can also be found on the deck, with
wading pools and a 25-metre lap pool. The architects
for the project are Ong&Ong, a leading architectural
firm in Singapore with a track record of over 30
years and over 500 projects to its name. Ong&Ong was
also the landscape designer for the project.
Travellers today expect up-to-date information on the
go. “Guests can request information on dining and
entertainment options that can be immediately sent to
their communication devices such as iPhones, iPods
and laptops. This is just one of many unique guest
experiences we plan to provide,” said Mr Ng Chee
Theam, Chief Operating Officer Asia, of Millennium &
Copthorne International Limited, the Singapore
subsidiary of M&C.
Studio M Hotel is located at 3
