Revamped Heritage Wing allows guests to get in touch with Singapore's colonial roots.
Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa will be concluding its construction and revamp at the end of this month with the unveiling of its Heritage Wing– an integral part of the historical site which blends old world charm with contemporary luxury, for guests on 1 December.
Featuring 62 spacious Heritage Suites – its namesake suite, a cigar lounge and whisky bar, this 70 plus-year-old section of the hotel has been given a fresh face-lift; allowing guests to step back in time amidst modern-day comforts.
With its location steeped in Singapore's rich colonial history, the hotel retained the essence of the original 1940s colonial architectural character when renovations were carried out on the wing. The Heritage Wing is made up of two British quarters connected by covered link-ways at each of the three storeys, and this same layout can be seen today, with the link-ways serving as corridors along which the Heritage Suites are lined.
Beyond the external architectural elements, the hotel also retained elements like the conservation door and window frames to preserve the historical integrity of the Heritage Wing.
Part of the hotel’s design concept, the minimalist, elegant interiors that run through the hotel’s Contemporary and Heritage Wings is a deliberate attempt to bring forth Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa’s qualities of the East (modern Asian lifestyle) and West (rich Swiss brand values of quality and reliability). By marrying the two juxtaposing facades with the interiors, the hotel is able to successfully illustrate the Mövenpick Heritage value of a luxurious lifestyle hotel.
In the Heritage Suite, for example, floor-to-ceiling windows allow soft light to flood the space revealing relaxing ochre shades, modern soft furnishing and wooden surfaces. Drawing on the use of the geographical features specific to each region, guests can look forward to relaxing in tastefully decorated suites that aredecked out in natural, tropical elements like slate flooring in the bathrooms and natural wood finishings. Coupled with the earth-toned colour scheme running through the hotel, guestswill be constantly reminded that they are in the soothing island oasis that is Sentosa.
With the eclectic mix of suites at the hotel’s Contemporary and Heritage Wings, the Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa now provides the widest range of themed suites on the island resort of Sentosa.
"Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa will continue to provide the trademark Swiss hospitality that can be experienced at all Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts worldwide, through our superior mix of rooms and suites,” said Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer Middle East and Asia, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. “The signature onsen suite in Mövenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa, for example, is targeted at guests who are looking for a unique experience in the tropics. Business travellers, on the other hand, will enjoy the executive and penthouse suites, which offer quiet relaxation in spacious and comfortable settings. We would like all our guests to come away from our hotel feeling exclusive and exceptional."
The Heritage Wing will open its doors to guests with effect from 1st December.
