GuocoLand has signed a landmark deal with AccorHotels for the management of the Group’s two new-built hotels at Tanjong Pagar Centre in Singapore and Damansara City in Kuala Lumpur.
The Sofitel Singapore City Centre and the Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara, will add a total of 534 rooms to the AccorHotel’s luxury brand portfolio.
The 222-room Sofitel Singapore City Centre will be part of the upcoming multi-billion dollar Tanjong Pagar Centre, which will redefine mixed use developments in Singapore. Located between historic Chinatown and the vibrant CBD, Tanjong Pagar Centre will feature Singapore’s tallest building at 290 metres, a prestigious residential and office tower, premier retail and event spaces and luxury Sofitel hotel, all set around beautifully landscaped parklands and with direct MRT station access.
The Sofitel Singapore City Centre will offer guests the finest luxury accommodations complete with outdoor pool, a plush executive lounge with stunning city views, a 620 sqm ballroom and eight meeting rooms plus world-class restaurant and bars.
In neighbouring Malaysia, the 312-room Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara is also an integral part of a new 8.5 acre integrated development in the upmarket Damansara Heights enclave called Damansara City which will feature two Grade A office towers, two luxury high-rise residences, and an F&B-centric lifestyle mall in addition to the luxury hotel.
The Sofitel will be the first internationally branded luxury hotel in the area and is part of the prime and exclusive Damansara Heights precinct, which boasts close proximity to KL Sentral transportation hub, as well as established townships like Bangsar and Petaling Jaya. The hotel — and indeed the whole precinct — will target corporate clients in the surrounding area, leisure travellers and the MICE market, with Damansara Heights having a reputation as a choice destination for some of Malaysia’s most elite and influential people thanks to its unparalleled value, heritage and distinction. A new MRT station next to the Damansara City development will provide high connectivity to the rest of Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley.
The Sofitel will feature a lobby lounge, deli, three restaurants and bars, a Club Millesime executive lounge on the 22nd floor, a So Spa, So Fit gym and outdoor swimming pool complete with pool bar. There will also be outstanding meeting facilities including an 840sqm ballroom and five meeting rooms.
