The highly anticipated 5-star Sofitel Singapore City Centre is set to open its doors this month. The luxury hotel will be located in the heart of historic Tanjong Pagar, just 20 minutes from Singapore’s Changi Airport, and will become AccorHotels landmark 800th hotel in Asia Pacific.

Surrounded by historic shop houses and towering skyscrapers, the 223-room hotel is elegantly designed, reflecting Singapore’s rich cultural heritage with an undeniable French flair.

A stunning nine-meter chandelier named the Singapour Je T’aime will greet guests upon their entry into the lobby of the hotel. Whirling through the lobby, the stunning art installation is made up of over 700 hand-blown glass crystals.

Public spaces are brought to life with an outstanding collection of custom-made furniture and artworks evoking the botanic theme that runs throughout the hotel.
