Conrad Singapore Orchard Unveils A Luxurious Oasis Fusing Hospitality and Art

In a dazzling affair, Conrad Singapore Orchard, formerly known as Regent Singapore, has officially unveiled its doors. It marks the debut of an opulent haven nestled in the heart of Orchard Road. The event was steeped in graceful charm and was not merely a showcase of sophisticated hospitality, but a testament to its unwavering commitment to the world of tasteful art.

Among its distinguished guests was Mr. Olivier Lim, Chairman of the Singapore Tourism Board, who graced the occasion as the Guest-of-Honour. The evening, hosted by veteran media personality Anita Kapoor, unfolded with speeches from key figures such as Mr. Kwee Liong Keng, Chairman of Pontiac Land Group and Mr. Alan Watts, President of Hilton Asia-Pacific. Their words resonated with the vision behind Conrad Singapore Orchard – a vision that sought to redefine hospitality by intertwining it with a genuine appreciation for art, creating a landmark that transcends the boundaries of conventional luxury. It is the second Conrad hotel run and operated by the Pontiac Land Group, the first being Conrad Singapore Centennial.

Mr. Kwee, reflecting on the hotel’s four-decade evolution, took the audience on a journey back in time when Pontiac Land Group and Kajima Development Pte Ltd collaborated during the hotel’s inception. Designed by renowned architect John Portman, this establishment was Singapore’s first atrium hotel, with an expansive skylight as its centrepiece, which was also Portman’s inaugural overseas project.

In his address, Mr. Watts emphasized Conrad’s appeal to the conscientious traveler – those seeking purposeful service and an authentic interpretation of luxury. The partnership with Pontiac Land Group and Kajima Development Pte Ltd was not just aimed at renovating the building, rather, rejuvenating it as one of Singapore’s leading premier luxury hotels, with a exquisite blend of artistry.

The hotel has always been a hallmark of luxury hospitality and will continue to be well positioned with these extensive enhancements to uplift the guest experience.

Some of the changes include the stunning transformation of 445 reimagined guest rooms that seamlessly combine refined residential living and botanical-inspired design, as well a special Sleep-to-Wake Ritual, transforming nightly turndowns into mindful experiences. Guests may indulge in a calming pre-sleep tea crafted from local botanicals, followed by an in-room guided sound bath to relax the mind and body. An extensive pillow menu ensures tailored comfort, facilitating serene slumbers and rejuvenating resets.

Enhancing holistic well-being, the Morning Intention Session by the pool offers a suite of modern fitness and wellness classes. This thoughtful initiative encourages guests to start their day with intention, promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle during their stay.

The celebration was a feast for the eyes, with a captivating blend of interactive visual art, modern ballet, and a culinary adventure. Conrad Singapore Orchard’s culinary team showcased their artistry with imaginative edible art installations, in line with the “Orchard Fusion” theme. The award-winning, Broadway-inspired Manhattan Bar, that is highly ranked on Asia’s 50 Best Bars list, presented a pop-up featuring its uniquely crafted cocktails, adding a signature touch to the event.

Indeed, art was not confined to its walls, it permeated through the entire atmosphere.

Diverse entertainment, from roving artists to hoop and stilt performers, coupled with a modern jazz duet with ballerinas, enlivened the glorious celebration. One of the highlights was the ‘Curiosity Cube,’ an installation by the local collective GastroGeography of Singapore, leaving each guest with a botanical illustration as a thoughtful parting gift.

What has set Conrad Singapore Orchard apart is not simply its luxurious accommodations, but its robust support for the arts, which goes beyond mere aesthetics. Art has become a part of the hotel’s identity, woven into its consciousness and the fabric of a guest’s experience.

From the moment guests enter the skylit atrium adorned with captivating art installations to the culinary masterpieces presented by the hotel’s culinary artisans, every detail of Conrad Singapore Orchard reflects its commitment to elevating the senses through creative expressions.

For those seeking a luxurious escape that transcends the ordinary, Conrad Singapore Orchard stands tall as a cultural haven where art and hospitality collide.
