Come 2Q 2021, the former Le Meridien Sentosa will reopen as Oasia Resort Sentosa under Far East Hospitality's (FEH) management.

Oasia Resort Sentosa will be FEH's fourth property on Sentosa, after Village Hotel Sentosa, Outpost Hotel and The Barracks Hotels on the island destination.

This 191-key property also marks FEH’s first foray into the resort and spa category, which chief executive Arthur Kiong said was "both a natural and calculated move".

“Each of our properties on Sentosa cater to different demographics... With Oasia Resort Sentosa, which targets the wellness conscious, it completes our suite of offerings on the island,” he stated.

Elsewhere in the region, the Singapore-based hospitality operator will expand its design-oriented Quincy brand abroad to Australia with Quincy Hotel Melbourne. The hotel management agreement with InterGlobe is made through FEH’s joint venture company, Toga Far East Hotels in Australia.

Set to open in 1Q 2021 at the top of Flinders Lane, Quincy Hotel Melbourne will offer Southeast Asian cuisine at its signature restaurant, a rooftop pool with views of Melbourne CBD and the nearby lifestyle precinct.

FEH has also announced a second Village hotel in Japan, some four months after the launch of its first venture in the country – Far East Village Hotel Ariake.

The 277-key Far East Village Hotel Yokohama, which is set to open in 2Q 2021, will be managed by Far East Hospitality under a hotel management agreement with Far East Organization. The property targets business travellers, and is located a five-minute drive to the central business district and a three-minute walk to Sakuragicho and Kannai stations.

“Tourism in Japan has picked up gradually since the easing of travel curbs and the resumption of reciprocal ‘green lanes’ for business and official travel. We are also hopeful that launching the property will also give us the opportunity to capture the domestic market,” said Kiong.
