Sheltering 255 rooms with innovative design elements and modern facilities, it is expected to be completed and fully operational by 2028. Built at the existing Terminal 2 Coach Stand, guests can look forward to a rooftop day club, bar, and an infinity pool offering spectacular views of the runway, airport boulevard and skyline.

Changi Airport’s love for flora and fauna will also extend to the design of the new hotel. An abundance of plants will be integrated throughout its design, a highlight being the ‘Floating Forest’ – layers of lush rainforest and hanging plants stretching over seven storeys.

Sustainability is at the heart of this new hotel development in Changi Airport. On completion, the hotel is targeted to be the first zero-energy hotel in Singapore, and potentially the first zero-energy airport hotel in the world. Sustainable features such as solar panels, hybrid cooling systems, naturally ventilated corridors and rainwater-harvesting technology will allow the hotel to achieve operational energy neutrality.

The addition of this new hotel is expected to not only enhance the convenience for travellers, but also draw more visitors to explore the vibrant Changi Precinct and its surrounding attractions. This new hotel will join two other landside hotels, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport (directly connected to Terminal 3) and YOTELAIR Singapore Changi Airport in Jewel, providing Singapore residents and travellers even more staycation, accommodation and lifestyle offerings in Changi.

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport was most recently crowned World’s Best Airport Hotel by Skytrax, a top accolade it has held on to for nine consecutive years. For travellers looking to rest and be rejuvenated before their flight or in between flights, there are transit hotels across Terminals 1 to 3 – Aerotel Singapore in Terminal 1, Ambassador Transit Hotel in Terminals 2 and 3, as well as the JetQuay Sleeping Suite in JetQuay CIP Terminal.
