Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, is set to reopen on 8 September 2023, following a six-month transformation.

through our transformation, weaving together Mandarin Oriental’s
legendary service and the rich tapestry of local culture, delivering an
immersive Singapore experience to our guests,” says Philipp Knuepfer,

The hotel's 510 rooms and suites blur the lines between indoors and
outdoors, with each room's design reflecting the scenic views outside.
Luxury living is redefined in 42 suites, including the Presidential
Suite and the Royal Marina Bay Penthouse, offering panoramic views and
spacious living areas. Residential suites cater to longer stays, while
Residential Family Suites feature themed interiors for young travellers.
Public spaces, like the lobby and HAUS 65 lounge, offer tranquility
for guests to unwind at over tea or tipples. Reimagined dining
experiences include embu, a garden-style all-day dining concept with an
adjoining playground for the kiddos to expand their energy while parents
indulge in the restaurant’s international fare; and The Mandarin Cake
Shop that serves finely crafted pastries and afternoon tea.
And of course, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore will not be complete
without its iconic, award-winning MO BAR that makes a grand return with
an innovative cocktail collection.
The hotel is also an ideal venue for events, with luxurious spaces
like the Oriental Ballroom. Beyond the hotel's walls, guests can explore
unique offerings like private Peranakan cooking classes and Vespa
