Accor to debut its Pullman brand in Singapore in 2022

Accor, in partnership New Park Property Pte Ltd, has announced that it will open its first Pullman-branded hotel in Singapore in 2022.

Pullman Singapore Orchard will be a rebranded property occupying a prime location in the very heart of the Orchard Road shopping belt.

Set to reopen in early 2022 following a stylish refurbishment, the hotel will be part of a mixed-use development, which will feature commercial and retail outlets including the flagship Apple store.

The hotel will be located a short walk from some of the city’s best malls including Paragon, Takashimaya, Wisma Atria and ION Orchard, and just minutes away from the vibrant CBD, the heritage-rich Civic District, the lush Singapore Botanic Gardens and the entertainment enclave of Clarke Quay. There are also 2 MRT stations on the hotel’s doorstep.

Garth Simmons, CEO, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, Accor, said:

We are proud to partner with New Park Property and thrilled to welcome this flagship address to the Pullman family, one of the fastest-growing brands in Accor’s premium segment. As the industry witnesses an increase in conversion activity amid these challenging times, this reaffirms the trust and strong confidence owners place in Accor, the popularity of our brands powered by strong distribution and lifestyle loyalty platforms, as well as our unrivalled expertise and proven track record in rebranding projects particularly in Singapore, following a successful renovation of Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel the Stamford within target budget and timelines. As a vibrant and stimulating hub in the heart of Orchard Road’s shopping district, this property will be a much-anticipated addition to our network in Singapore, and will open as visitors start to return to one of Asia’s most exciting destinations.

Pullman’s bold dining concepts will be introduced to delight the palates of both locals and visitors, while those hoping to recharge after a day of shopping or exploration, will be able to enjoy an energising workout or some much needed downtime at the hotel’s fitness club and outdoor pool.

Mr Wang Changjun, Managing Director, New Park Property Pte Ltd, said:

We are thrilled to introduce an exciting new brand into Singapore’s famous Orchard Road and to partner with Accor, a global leader in the hospitality industry. We have selected Accor as our partner in this flagship asset for their flexibility, agility, expertise and track record with conversion projects. We are also confident that we will benefit from the Group’s proven distribution channels and its well-established lifestyle loyalty programme to help put a global spotlight on the hotel.

Accor operates 27 properties in Singapore across all segments, including iconic hotels such as Raffles Hotel Singapore, Fairmont Singapore, Swissôtel The Stamford, and Sofitel Sentosa Resort & Spa.
