LONDON—Acting as a springboard into Asia, Yotel has announced that it will open a 600-cabin property in Singapore in 2018.
Inspired by first class airline cabins, Yotel Singapore will be located in the heart of the city. The management agreement has been made with Yat Yuen Hong Company Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Fok Corporation Limited.
The Singapore hotel will have Yotel’s signature elements of its flagship properties, similar to the Yotel in Times Square, NY, and will include a Club Lounge space with Club cabins that double up as meeting/work spaces during the day, transforming to a restaurant/bar space in the evenings and weekends, and large outdoor terrace space, with a pool and a gym.
Yotel’s cabins are designed to provide guests a flexible and convenient space. The cabins include luxury bedding, rain showers, purple mood lighting and the hotel's techno wall with flat screen TV, multi power points and iPod connectivity. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout all the cabins and public spaces.
“Given Yotel is heavily inspired by Asian culture, it is fantastic that we are launching such an iconic project as our first in Asia,” said Gerard Greene, co-founder and CEO of Yotel. “The location is one of the best in Singapore and we have fantastic partners in Hong Fok Group, who share our vision. Yotel will bring a unique hotel experience to Singapore. It's a perfect time for the city to embrace a new and exciting brand, a first for Singapore and the launch of affordable luxury for the hotel scene in Asia."

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
