Far East Hospitality’s CEO, Arthur Kiong, says there are a number of changes ahead for Rendezvous Hotels aimed at enhancing the brand and the guest experience.
Speaking exclusively on camera to HM at the unveiling of the renovated Rendezvous Hotel Singapore last week (Jan 17), Kiong said the existing Rendezvous brands – Rendezvous Studio Hotel, Rendezvous Hotel and Rendezvous Grand Hotel – would be consolidated.
He said those that were not suitable under the Rendezvous Hotel brand could be rebranded under one of the Toga Hotels brands, possibly Vibe.
Far East Orchard and Toga announced a joint venture in late 2013 that has seen Toga assume management of Rendezvous Hotels in Australia and New Zealand, as well as explore opportunities to introduce some of Far East’s brands into the Australasian market, including Quincy.
He spoke about those topics and more in the first of a two-part interview and to view the video, click on the YouTube image at the top of the page.
Part two of the interview will be broadcast on HM online next week.
