The Best New Hotel in Singapore
Neighborhood: Orchard Road
Opening in 2023, Artyzen Singapore will be the first new hotel added to Singapore’s Orchard Road district in over a decade. What was once the sprawling home of the late Tan Hoon Siang (grandson of Singapore philanthropist Tan Tock Seng) is being transformed into a 20-story luxury property. The 142 rooms (eight suites and 134 standard rooms) will sport a distinctive aesthetic, fusing reinterpreted facets of Peranakan art and style (known for intricate details and immaculate workmanship) with contemporary design. If offerings at its sister properties are a guide—like the teaching of pānānā (navigational techniques) at the Plantation Inn in Maui—expect local cultural experiences here too.
