Marriott International, Inc. announced today it has signed an agreement with IOI Properties Group, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers to bring W Singapore – Marina View, a new 350-room property, to downtown Singapore. The hotel is slated to debut at the site of a 51-story mixed-use development. Perched atop the hotel is Marina View Residences, where a suite of high-end apartments is set to redefine luxury living. Construction of the development is expected to begin by the end of 2023, with the hotel projected to operate in late 2028.
“We are excited to collaborate with IOI Properties Group to bring the iconic W brand to Marina Bay, one of the island city’s most dynamic and vibrant areas,” said Oriol Montal, Managing Director, Luxury Asia Pacific excluding China, Marriott International. “This signing underscores the strong demand for our luxury brands across the region as we continue to expand our portfolio in new and existing markets. It also marks the opening of our second W Hotels in Singapore, following the success of W Singapore – Sentosa Cove. Singapore is a city that celebrates diversity, creativity and innovation, and W Singapore – Marina View is anticipated to redefine Singapore’s iconic skyline with its evolved design, dynamic programming and Whatever/Whenever service philosophy,” he added.
W Singapore – Marina View expects to offer guests an exhilarating escape in the heart of the city, with stunning views of the Marina Bay and the central linear park along the planned Marina View Road. The project is anticipated to be led by Architects 61, with interiors by Hachem Design and is slated to feature stylish and spacious guest rooms and suites, as well as signature venues such as the WET deck, FIT fitness center, AWAY spa and WOOBAR. Plans also call for the hotel to feature innovative dining and social spaces at multiple restaurants and bars, including the brand’s iconic Living Room amplified through always-on programming.
Mr Lee Yeow Seng, Group Chief Executive Officer of IOI Properties Group, said, “This partnership with Marriott International is testament of the confidence we have in their track record and renowned expertise in the hospitality industry and W Hotels’ commitment to delivering unparalleled luxury and innovation. We are delighted to answer to the growing demands of luxury lifestyle hotels with W Singapore – Marina View, which is set to transform guest experience in leisure, entertainment and gastronomy here within the iconic Marina Bay district.”
Located near key commercial and entertainment districts of Marina Bay, Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar as well as the heritage neighborhood of Chinatown, W Singapore – Marina View is set to appeal to locals and travelers.
