SINGAPORE is celebrating the unveiling of another new hotel with the Mercure Singapore Bugis opening its doors in one of the Lion City’s most dynamic neighbourhoods.
The 395-room address sits in the heart of the arts and culture district and offers panoramic views from its rooftop Sky Deck and infinity lap pool as well as Sauces by Chef Daniel, which is a western-style restaurant “with a local twist”, and chic lobby lounge BARtistry@One22.
The new-build hotel is a five-minute walk from the Bugis MRT station, right beside the Bugis+ shopping centre, and there’s a selection of cafes and shops on the doorstep “offering travellers an authentic taste of Singapore from its exceptional location in the Bugis-Bras Basah district”.
“The new Mercure Singapore Bugis truly embodies the multicultural soul and dynamic pulse of the Lion City”, said hotel general manager Rhys Challenger.
“From the specially commissioned heritage artwork in our interiors to the vibrant location of the Bugis area, we aim to create a locally-inspired experience where guests stay connected.”
The Mercure Singapore Bugis boasts a collection of rooms, lofts and suites featuring scenes of old and new Singapore in a vivid colour palette with the commissioned artworks, imagery and illustrations “an artistic mélange of the city’s rich cultural heritage and its various ethnicities”.
All guest rooms come equipped with a smartphone to provide guests free unlimited mobile internet access and international calls to 10 key destinations, including Australia, and there’s complimentary access to online publications via the PressReader app with more 5,000 online newspapers and magazines in 55 languages included in the offering.
