The historic Capitol Building in Singapore, which dates back to the 1930s, is being restored and transformed into a luxury hotel.
Scheduled to open its doors in the first quarter of 2016, The Patina Capitol Singapore will form part of a new integrated development on the historic site, which will also include a 39-unit residential tower, a retail mall, and cinema and theatre entertainment, reviving the former Capitol Theatre that previously occupied the building.
Housed in the Capitol Building and neighbouring Stamford House, The Patina will feature 157 rooms and suites across two wings (one in each of the buildings), with all rooms featuring two iPads, Nespresso coffee machines and free Wi-Fi.
Facilities at the property will include a spa with three treatment rooms, a fitness centre, a restaurant with an open kitchen and three private dining rooms, a Peruvian-themed bar and a chocolate boutique.
“We are excited to see this moment be realised as we unveil a creation built by passion,” said Tracy Lowe, the hotel’s general manager. “The Patina Capitol Singapore has been created as a hallmark of the Patina brand where tailored services and local character seek to inspire an enriching travel journey. Guests will get to embrace a piece of Singapore heritage, while at the same time, discover truly personalised services, attuned to create distinctive memories.”
The Patina Capitol Singapore is located in the centre of Singapore, just two minutes’ walk to City Hall MRT station.
