Accor is set to bring its Pullman brand to Singapore’s Orchard Road in 2022.

The hotel group has partnered with New Park Property Pte Ltd to launch the Pullman Singapore Orchard, which will be rebranding of a property on Orchard Road.

The hotel will open in 2022 following a refurbishment and belong to a mixed-use development with commercial and retail outlets including the flagship Apple store.

The property’s 308 rooms will be refurbished with Pullman’s contemporary design ahead of reopening, and the group also promises the addition of “Pullman’s bold dining concepts”. The hotel also features a fitness club and outdoor pool with a bar.

The property is located a short walk from various shopping malls (Paragon, Takashimaya, Wisma Atria and ION Orchard) and minutes from the CBD, the Civic District, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Clarke Quay. Plus it has two MRT stations on its doorstep.

Accor currently operates 27 properties in Singapore, including the Raffles Hotel Singapore, Fairmont Singapore, Swissotel The Stamford, and Sofitel Sentosa Resort and Spa.

Garth Simmons, CEO of Accor Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said:

“We are proud to partner with New Park Property and thrilled to welcome this flagship address to the Pullman family, one of the fastest-growing brands in Accor’s premium segment…

“As a vibrant and stimulating hub in the heart of Orchard Road’s shopping district, this property will be a much-anticipated addition to our network in Singapore, and will open as visitors start to return to one of Asia’s most exciting destinations.”

Wang Changjun, Managing Director of New Park Property Pte Ltd, added:

“We are thrilled to introduce an exciting new brand into Singapore’s famous Orchard Road and to partner with Accor, a global leader in the hospitality industry. We have selected Accor as our partner in this flagship asset for their flexibility, agility, expertise and track record with conversion projects. We are also confident that we will benefit from the Group’s proven distribution channels and its well-established lifestyle loyalty programme to help put a global spotlight on the hotel.”
