Singapore's Newest Boutique Hotel Pays Attention to Personal Style

Splurging at Andaz is worth it.

(SPOT.ph) Luxury hotels are well-known for their fancy rooms, formally clothed staff, and often intimidating lobby spaces. But Andaz Singapore, a five-star boutique hotel by Hyatt that opened in November 2017, proves that high-end accommodation options don't always have to be prim and proper—they just have to be stylish. Andaz, after all, comes from the Hindi word that means "personal style."

The check-in counters are not your usual front desks.

Guests first see this laidback vibe on the 25th floor lobby where hotel personnel are clad in what seems to be everyday wear by local clothing brand A Good Company. You'd think that you just crashed a fun-filled party especially since, instead of a front desk, there are counter tables at the center of the room. This is also the floor, aptly called Alley on 25, where all the hotel’s seven restaurants are located. The all-day dining venue recreates the exciting experience of Singapore’s alleyway shophouses and street-dining scene.

This vibe continues to the 342 contemporary rooms housed at Andaz Singapore. Each accommodation features floor-to-ceiling windows where you can catch a stunning view of the city; complimentary mini-bar with locally sourced snacks (the spicy popcorn is interesting!) and non-alcoholic drinks that are replenished daily; and a spacious living space designed by esteemed interior architect Andre Fu. Guests are also entitled to all-day tea and coffee as well as free wine and pale ale during Andaz Lounge Hour (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) at the Sunroom.

But Andaz Singapore’s claim-to-fame is its breathtaking roof deck located on the 39th floor, which provides 360-degree views of the city. It comes alive by sundown when guests flock to Mr. Stork, the hotel's rooftop bar surrounded by teepee huts that are great for some comfortable lounging around.

The hotel's location right in the heart of Singapore is also a plus point for travelers. It is directly connected to Bugis MRT station via an underground pedestrian walkway and just a stone’s throw away from the cultural neighborhoods of Kampong Glam, Little India, Bras Basah Bugis, and Marina Bay.
