The latest of airport lounge specialist Plaza Premium Group’s Aerotel hotels has opened in the Departures area in Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal One, the first in Singapore and also Asia’s only airport transit hotel with an outdoor swimming pool.
The opening brings the growing portfolio to three, with other Aerotels at Abu Dhabi and Rio de Janeiro. Heathrow and Hyderabad are scheduled to join the group later this year.
Plaza says Aerotels are designed as one-of-a-kind airside or landside transit facilities providing comfort and convenient booking hours to suit travellers’ needs and offering several types of affordable room options.
Aerotels provide a host of facilities that provide passengers with everything they need to have a comfortable stay without having to leave the airport or clearing customs and immigration, a spokesman said.
The Changi facility has 70 premium rooms as well as the rooftop pool, a poolside bar, library, fitness corner plus a pillow menu. It is accessible to passengers in transit from all three terminals via automated walkways or the airport skytrain.
Rooms, budget single or twin or standard twin, are rented in 6hr blocks, with 24hr check-in. Guests making room reservations are required to provide arrival and departure flight details.

This hotel is very good if you are transiting or have carry on baggage only.
