Royal Plaza on Scotts Singapore (RP) unveils its new look after an extensive renovation. Watch out for the pops of colours and accents of local heritage around the hotel.
Step in and be greeted by the grandiose new lobby, with the chandelier centrepiece, inspired by the gold and crimson colours of the Phalaenopsis orchid. The two original tropical landscape murals in the lobby since its opening are preserved and reinterpreted with a sepia effect. The scent of leaves permeating the lobby immerses one in the Garden City.
In the guest rooms, pops of colours jump out from the calming palette of wood and grey. Think fiery red for Deluxe rooms, cobalt blue for Premier rooms and sunflower yellow for Royal Club Premier rooms. Thoughtful touches such as USB ports near the bedstands are introduced to fit in the modern lifestyle. There’s no need to bring the bulky travel adaptor around! Wall pieces of Singapore’s old shophouses add a nostalgic yet contemporary graphic element to the scheme. Hop under the steaming rain shower and relax with the refreshing citrus-scented shower set for a restorative shower experience. With functional detailing and honest design, stays will feel comforting like a breath of fresh air, even when one is staying in the heart of such a vibrant shopping district like Orchard Road.
In addition to the brand’s signature perks, free in-room minibar, Nespresso coffee and hotel WIFI, RP is extending the free WIFI beyond the walls of the hotel. Guests get to enjoy free high speed WIFI even when they are on the move. RP is the first hotel in Singapore to throw in unlimited mobile data with free usage of pocket WIFI devices that connect up to five devices.
Carousel, the hotel’s award-winning buffet restaurant, is not left out of the fun. These are brand new and exciting additions such as Churrasco – authentic Brazilian barbecue, Asian hotplate – local delights like barbeque stingray and fried carrot cake and Garden desserts – sweet treats enriched with nutrients from parsnips, beetroot or basil. Floor to ceiling window panes are dressed with colourful rows of old shophouses that add a sense of Singapore heritage to the dining experience.
It’s not just the hotel’s hardware that is being refreshed. The Chief Experience Officers (CEOs), the hotel’s talents, who hold the keys to make every stay a memorable one, also embraced the vibrant vibes of the rejuvenated brand in a series of playful workshops. The combination of bright cheerful elements of the hotel’s design and experiences delivered by CEOs, sets out to colour the stays of guests.
