Mondrian to open in Singapore in 2023
Mondrian, part of Ennismore, one of the hottest hospitality groups in the world with a global collective of 14 brands, will open in Singapore in the first quarter of 2023.
Rising above the historic and colourful Chinatown shophouses with sweeping views of the glittering city skyline, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the Central Business District. Backtrack 100 years and the notorious streets of Duxton Hill were filled with adventurers and thrill seekers searching for a taste of the forbidden. The aroma of spices and the sounds of the illicit permeated the air. Today, Duxton Hill is Singapore’s most up-and-coming neighbourhood featuring barista cafes, world-class eateries and bars, art galleries and independent boutiques.
The hotel houses 302 guestrooms and shophouse suites, a cinematic rooftop pool and eclectic restaurants and bars. Its design draws inspiration from the heritage conservation area’s traditional architecture and presents immersive installations and a contemporary collection of local and international artwork to create a space to connect and broaden horizons.
Mondrian himself was an artist who shocked the world with his minimalist take on the Cubist era. Mondrian the brand has always sought to provoke and surprise through creating the extraordinary. With its flair for the unexpected, bold design and electric energy, Mondrian will offer guests a distinctly different hotel experience in Singapore.
