AccorHotels to Expand Pullman Brand to Singapore

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.

Mr 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.”

The 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.”

There are currently over 120 Pullman hotels in 33 countries worldwide and Asia Pacific accounts for more than 70 hotels and resorts and more than 21,000 rooms.
