Sofitel to open third property in Singapore – Sofitel Singapore City Centre

French luxury hotel chain Sofitel Hotels & Resorts is opening its third outlet in Singapore at the Tanjong Pagar Centre later this year.

The 223-room, 20-storey Sofitel Singapore City Centre will be its flagship hotel, targeting business travellers or those looking to host an event in the heart of the Central Business District.

Mr Wouter de Graaf, the hotel’s general manager, says that more than 20,000 sq ft of the hotel’s space is taken up by 10 multi-use meeting rooms. There is also an 8,600 sq ft ballroom and direct lift access to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station.

The interiors are adorned with botanical details inspired by the symmetry of French gardens and Singapore’s vibrant green spaces. The rooms and suites range in size from 38 sq m and rates start at $400++, inclusive of breakfast and Internet access.

Other facilities include a 30m infinity pool and free access to the Virgin Active gym located on the sixth floor in the complex.

Apart from the wide variety of eateries in Tanjong Pagar Centre, Sofitel guests can dine within the hotel at Racines Restaurant, which will serve French classics alongside contemporary Chinese delights using custom-built Marrone stoves from Italy. The restaurant will be helmed by executive chef Jean-Charles Dubois, who had headed the kitchens at Balzac Brasserie and Raffles Grill at Raffles Hotel.

Managed by AccorHotels, the hotel is accepting bookings and reservations for September onwards. Sofitel’s two other outlets here are Sofitel So Singapore in Robinson Road and Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa
