G’day Singapore! QT Hotels Brings Aussie Flair To The Lion City

Play, Sydney / 30 May 2024

Pack your bags! Your favourite Aussie hotel brand is setting up shop in Singapore.

Calling all Singapore-bound Sydneysiders! If you’re planning a trip to the Lion City later this year, you might be pleasantly surprised to find a familiar touch of Aussie hospitality awaiting you. The well-regarded QT Hotels & Resorts is setting sail for new shores, with its first Asian property – QT Singapore – scheduled to open its doors on September 16th, 2024.

For those unfamiliar with the brand, QT Hotels has carved a niche for itself in Australia and New Zealand. Their boutique hotels are known for their playful design, luxurious comfort, and commitment to creating a truly memorable guest experience. Each QT property boasts a unique personality, often drawing inspiration from the building’s history and local surroundings.

QT Singapore is no exception. Housed in the historic Eastern Extension Telegraph building, dating back to 1927, the hotel promises to seamlessly blend heritage charm with modern design. Australian interior designer Nic Graham is entrusted with bringing QT’s signature style to life. Think bold patterns, curated art pieces, and a touch of theatricality – all carefully balanced to respect the building’s rich past and reflect Singapore’s vibrant energy.

Location-wise, QT Singapore couldn’t be better situated. Nestled right next to the famed Lau Pa Sat hawker centre, a local favourite for its delectable street food, the hotel offers guests the perfect opportunity to immerse themselves in Singapore’s diverse culinary scene. Whether you crave a sizzling satay skewer or a Michelin-starred meal, the city has something for everyone.

While details about the hotel’s specific dining options are still emerging, we can expect a signature bar and grill to be a central feature. This promises to be a place to unwind after a day of exploration, offering a menu that celebrates fresh, seasonal ingredients with an Australian twist. Additionally, a rooftop bar and pool – a signature element of many QT properties – promises stunning city views and a likely hotspot for both guests and locals.

The arrival of QT Singapore marks a significant moment for Australian hospitality in Asia. It allows Sydneysiders familiar with the brand to experience it in a new setting, with the added bonus of Singapore’s unique culture and charm. For Singapore itself, QT Singapore injects a dose of local flair into the city’s already vibrant hotel scene.

Beyond the luxurious rooms and stunning rooftop views, it’s the little details that set QT Hotels apart. Expect playful touches throughout the hotel, a commitment to local partnerships (perhaps collaborations with Singaporean artists or designers), and a staff known for their warm and friendly service. QT Singapore promises to be more than just a place to stay; it aims to be a destination in itself, a place where guests can discover the essence of Singapore with a touch of Aussie spirit.

Bookings for QT Singapore are now open for 16 September onwards at qthotels.com/singapore.
