Conveniently situated in the arts and cultural district of the Lion City, the newly minted Mercure Singapore Bugis offers excellent facilities and creature comforts aplenty, not to mention a plethora of attractions right on its doorstep.
Through its strategic location and locally-inspired touches, the hotel aims to provide its guests with an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience. Bugis+ shopping center and Bugis MRT Station are both within walking distance, connecting guests to some of the city’s best shops, cafes, and restaurants. Design-wise, the property’s facade and interior are graced with custom-made heritage artworks that pay tribute to Singapore’s fervent energy and rich cultural heritage. There are also plenty of ways to appreciate the city-state’s sights, sounds, and smells from up above: the rooftop Sky Deck overlooks the high-rise structures and skyscrapers that line Singapore’s streets, while the spacious outdoor terrace on level three is set against colorful apartment units and multicultural temples. Over on the seventh floor, a historic church provides the perfect backdrop for churning out laps in the hotel’s infinity pool.
As the first property in the Mercure family to offer loft-style rooms, Mercure Singapore Bugis has something extra special in store for its guests, setting itself apart from its more established siblings. Vivid hues and striking illustrations bring the Loft and Executive Loft rooms to life, while the modest staircase and hardwood flooring balance the brightly-colored walls and channel the quintessential loft look—sleek, stripped down, and effortlessly stylish. Aesthetics aside, having a two-storey room means guests have a dedicated space to rest; the upper floor features a cozy tatami-inspired double bed that is sure to make getting up in the morning that much more difficult. Downstairs, a desk, sofa, and smart TV create an atmosphere that is conducive to both work and indulgent relaxation. What’s more, all 395 rooms are equipped with a smartphone that comes with free unlimited Internet access, complimentary international calls to 10 key destinations, and a digital city guide, allowing guests to stay connected at all times during their travels.
On the dining front, Sauces by Chef Daniel serves up international fare with a side of opulent furnishings. Standouts at this elegant restaurant include the celebrity chef’s signature wok-charred salmon, braised lamb shank, and oven-baked spring chicken. Meanwhile, the chic BARtistry@One22 lures patrons with an enticing selection of spirits, specially curated wines, and Asian-influenced cocktails.
“The new Mercure Singapore Bugis truly embodies the multicultural soul and dynamic pulse of the Lion City”, says general manager Rhys Challenger, who previously worked at Mercure Auckland. While Rhys has found a great many differences between his work experience in New Zealand and his current role at Mercure Singapore Bugis, one thing about the Mercure brand remains firmly true: “Guests are our number one focus, which is why everything we do revolves around exceeding their expectations.”
To celebrate its first year, the hotel is throwing a scrumptious breakfast buffet at just S$5 for all of their guests until March 2017. Book yours here now!
