SINGAPORE—Far East Hospitality, Singapore-based operator of hotels and serviced residences, introduced upcoming luxury hotel—The Clan Hotel Singapore, the latest brand to be added to Far East Hospitality’s portfolio, at ITB Asia 2019.
Travelers aged between 25 and 44 years old make up an average 41% of international visitor arrivals recorded over the last six months. This is an up-and-coming generation with 57% placing traveling and seeing the world at the top of their list of aspirations. “Discerning and savvy, they are willing to pay reasonably more to enjoy unique or memorable experiences. This new generation of travelers defines luxury beyond the traditional sense,” said Arthur Kiong, CEO, Far East Hospitality.
He added, “To meet the growing momentum of experience-driven travel, we challenged ourselves to introduce a new perspective on luxury with The Clan Hotel. Through carefully curated touchpoints, we want to connect more travelers to unique experiences that deliver both a deeper cultural connection and a strong sense of place—staying true to our customer-centric approach of Singapore-inspired hospitality.”
The Clan Hotel Singapore
Slated to open in Q2 2020, The Clan Hotel Singapore will be the first property to launch under the new brand.
A modern luxury hotel, The Clan Hotel Singapore draws inspiration from a bygone era and the pioneering spirit of hope, aspiration and comradeship that prevailed and built Singapore, according to the company. Every aspect of the hotel is designed with touches to evoke a sense of kinship and community—where guests are treated as insiders and are part of a club with like-minded people.
The 324-room property will have an inventory comprising four room types: Superior Room, Deluxe Room, as well as the Premier and Grand Premier Room, which will be part of the hotel’s Master Series rooms that offer customized services. These include immediate room check-in services at the airport with limousine transfer or luggage forwarding, a welcome tea ceremony serving Chinese tea and traditional snacks, and turndown services with blooming flower tea and essential oil rollers.
The hotel is located at the crossroads of culture and commerce, and close to commercial buildings in Raffles Place, Collyer Quay and One Fullerton; heritage streets around Far East Square, Telok Ayer St., Amoy St., Club St., Ann Siang Hill, Lau Pa Sat and Chinatown; as well as uniquely Singaporean sights such as the Marina Bay and Gardens by the Bay.
The Clan Keeper Collective
Further establishing itself as a conduit between guests and the community within its vicinity, Kiong also introduced The Clan Keeper Collective, a network of keepers and creators of culture, tradition and craft in Singapore. To bring to life the best of local experiences for its guests, The Clan Hotel Singapore will be collaborating with these artists to create authentic touchpoints that represent Singapore-inspired hospitality. These include customized in-room dining experiences, personalized precinct tours, photo walks and food tours, as well as shoe-shining services. These collaborations are set to be unveiled over the course of next year.
