Singapore unveiling

The 367-room Parkroyal on Pickering opened last week in Singapore with its sustainable, hotel-in-a-garden design.

The 16-storey property is strategically situated at the gateway of Singapore’s Central Business District, between Hong Lim Park and bustling Chinatown.  Located minutes away from entertainment and waterfront dining areas along Singapore River and vibrant nightspots at Clarke Quay and Boat Quay, it is within close proximity to various modes of public transport and offers a convenient base for guests to explore the city.

The hotel breaks new ground by introducing the state’s first solar-powered sky-gardens.  Amongst its energy conservation features are the use of automatic light, rain and motion sensors, rain harvesting and NEWater (recycled water).  Nature-inspired materials and textures, such as light and dark wood, pebbles, water and glass, are used throughout the design of the hotel.

Set outdoors amidst landscaping and waterfalls, the fifth floor is a dedicated wellness space which incorporates fitness and recreational facilities including an infinity pool overlooking the city, Jacuzzi, fitness centre, outdoor terrace and a 300-metre garden walk.  Colourful birdcage-shaped cabanas are positioned around the pool area, providing comfortable chill-out spaces.  The award-winning St Gregory spa, which will be launched in March, offers signature therapies and a wide range of luxurious body and beauty treatments.

All rooms feature complimentary hi-speed internet connectivity, in-room amenities and a well-stocked executive bar.  Depending on room category, other guestroom highlights also include Nespresso coffee machines, rain showers, bathtubs and designer ergonomic chairs. www.parkroyalhotels.com
