AccorHotels and EL Development, a
Singapore-based property developer, will open
a new-build five-star Pullman hotel on a prime site on Hill Street, in the
civic and cultural heart of the city.
The 342-room hotel will be
Singapore’s first Pullman and will feature a rooftop bar and
an executive lounge with sweeping views over Fort Canning, the
Singapore River and St Andrew’s Cathedral. The hotel will also
have a health and fitness centre as well as a pool.
The hotel is set to
open in 2022 after a complete redevelopment of the site.
Lim Yew Soon, Managing Director of EL Development, said,
“We are pleased to appoint AccorHotels to manage our first hotel
and we will bring the same high quality that symbolises our
residential and mixed-use buildings to what will be our first
hotel development. We are confident that the Pullman brand
is the perfect fit for the market in Singapore as the brand has
really built a strong reputation, especially in Asia.”
Pullman brand is one of the fastest-growing upper upscale brands
in the world since launching in Bangkok in 2007.
“Pullman is one of the true
success stories of the hotel industry and we are delighted to be
able to announce our first Pullman for Singapore,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman and CEO of AccorHotels Asia Pacific. “As the
largest hotel operator in Singapore, we believe the new Pullman
will fill a gap in the market for a smart, modern hotel that meets
the demands of the discerning digital traveller.”

Asia Pacific accounts for more than 70 hotels and resorts and more
than 21,000 rooms.
