In about a month’s time, highly anticipated lifestyle destination Jewel will open at Singapore’s Changi Airport. First announced more than five years ago, the mixed-use development looks set to be a destination in its own right, offering more than 280 retail stores and eateries.

As previously reported, Jewel will see various brands making their debut in the Lion City, including burger joint Shake Shack, Pokémon, and Swiss chocolatier Lä derach.

Jewel’s glass-and-steel facade.

Designed by Safdie Architects and led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the 137,000 square-meter Jewel is a distinctive donut-shaped hub connecting three of the airport’s four terminals. The centerpiece is a majestic 40-meter waterfall called the Rain Vortex, surrounded by a lush “forest valley” and said to be the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.

When Jewel officially opens, visitors can look forward to shopping at the largest Nike store in Southeast Asia, as well as dining at Five Spice, a food court featuring more than 10 culinary brands.

A cozy Yotelair cabin.

Aside from retail and dining, the lifestyle destination will also be home to Asia’s first Yotelair, which features 130 smartly-designed cabins that offer stays bookable by the hour for a minimum of four hours. Great for travelers to get refreshed before or after their flights, the property offers shower cabins alongside time-saving features such as self-check-in kiosks. Opening on April 12, Yotelair comes with rooms ranging from premium to accessible, and family cabins.

Meanwhile, Singapore residents can register for a sneak peek of Jewel between April 11 to 16, before its public opening. A total of about 500,000 tickets will be made available.
