The 300-room Holiday Inn Singapore Little India has officially rebranded from Park Hotel Farrer Park on 7 September.

Post rebrand, Holiday Inn Singapore Little India will undergo a design-led renovation before relaunching with Holiday Inn brand hallmarks including a new dining and workspace concept with a globally recognised F&B partner.

The property has also shifted management hands from Park Hotel Group to IHG Hotels & Resorts, which now manages three of property owner RB Capital's Singapore hotels: Holiday Inn Singapore Little India, Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay and InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay.

Both stakeholders say the partnership — which now numbers some 1,000 keys in Singapore — will enable greater synergies, shared expertise and support that will ensure all hotels are better prepared for recovery and the return of travel.

This latest management deal also takes IHG's hotel count in Singapore to 11, including the soon-to-open voco Orchard Singapore in 2022.

IHG is also in on Singapore's endemic strategy, with RB Capital founder and CEO Kishin RK stating that he's "confident that the hospitality industry will bounce back strongly".

"New attractions and infrastructure projects planned for 2021 to 2030 bode well for the future demand of tourism in Singapore. The government’s management of the Covid crisis with the lowest fatality count globally has gained the confidence and trust amongst corporations globally to explore this city as an attractive hub for themselves and their
businesses," said Kishin RK.

Holiday Inn Singapore Little India is located in the Lion City's bustling Little India enclave, adjacent to Farrer Park Hospital and next to 24-hour shopping mall Mustafa Centre as well as the City Square Mall.

The hotel is also directly connected to Farrer Park MRT station, which conveniently brings guests to the Central Business District, Orchard Road, and Singapore Sports Hub. Changi International Airport is also a 20-minute drive away.
