Starwood is to open a Westin Hotel in Singapore in 2013.

The Westin Singapore Marina Bay, which occupies the 32nd to 46th floor of Asia Square Tower 2, is owned by one of MGPA's managed funds and will feature the highest hotel lobby in the city state.

 “We are delighted to re-introduce the Westin Brand to Singapore with the opening of this sophisticated and elegant urban retreat. The opening of The Westin Singapore Marina Bay underscores the importance of Singapore to the Westin brand and builds on our strong history in both urban and resort locations throughout Asia,” said Chuck Abbott, Regional Vice President for Southeast Asia at Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

The hotel’s 305 rooms, The Heavenly Spa by Westin and a 480sqm Banquet Hall are prime examples of the Westin’s nature-inspired design aesthetic. Nature-inspired green features will also be significant in the four F&B destinations. The Gastro Bar Specialty Restaurant will be fitted with reconstituted timber flooring and wall paneling while Seasonal Taste, which will offer all-day dining, will use bamboo, a renewable fiber source, for its accent flooring.

The Westin Singapore Marina Bay will also feature the WestinWORKOUT gym, a business center with a large feature wall composed of sawdust elements captured in resin as well as an infinity pool on the 35th floor.

The Westin’s new design emphasis on eco-friendliness goes hand in hand with the concept of Asia Square Tower 2, which has been awarded the LEED (Core & Shell) Platinum pre-certification and BCA Green Mark Platinum Award for its sustainability efforts.

 The Westin Singapore rooms will provide a significant growth in sustainability by utilizing eco-friendly materials such as the motion sensor, which will detect for movements in the room before switching to energy-saving mode, and water-saving low-flow faucets and showerheads. In addition, furniture used in the guestrooms such as the bed end bench, the mini bar and the writing desk detail are ‘green label’ products.
