Hilton has debuted Conrad Singapore Orchard, its second Conrad Hotels and Resorts property in Singapore, following extensive reinvention and refurbishment.

Nestled within an exclusive enclave of Orchard Road and surrounded by lush greenery, Conrad Singapore Orchard is an urban oasis that effortlessly encapsulates the essence of locality and luxury.

“The growth of our award-winning Conrad Hotels and Resorts brand underscores our commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio in the most inspiring destinations around the region,” said Hilton President – Asia-Pacific, Alan Watts.

“Known for its strategic connectivity and vibrant culture, Singapore is a hub for global explorers whether on leisure or business.

“With the official debut of Conrad Singapore Orchard, we look forward to working with our long-standing and valued partners at Pontiac Land Group to further elevate luxury hospitality in this truly international city,” he said.

Originally designed by legendary architect John Portman and invigorated by local creatives and artists, Conrad Singapore Orchard’s distinctive design conscientiously embraces Singapore’s garden city environment, drawing art and nature into 12 cascading floors of contemporary guest rooms, meeting spaces, restaurants, and bars.

At the heart of Portman’s architectural marvel, the skylit atrium stands as a bold legacy of his work—a striking and iconic hallmark that bathes the entire space in natural light.

Contemporary pieces by emerging local and regional artists thread through every nook, welcoming guests on a visual exploration of Singapore’s rich botanical heritage through its thoughtfully curated art collection.

Globally renowned sculptures, like Stephanie Scuris’ Harmony Fountain and Michio Ihara’s stunning Singapore Shower, add a touch of timelessness to the surroundings.

Conrad Singapore Orchard’s 445 newly imagined guest rooms blend refined residential living with botanical-inspired design. Floor-to-ceiling windows, complemented by plantation shutters, invite nature from the outdoors in.

The spaces are infused with tranquillity, featuring serene hues and natural tones in sand, cream, and muted greens, and are accented by signature palm motifs and potted tropical trees. Each guestroom features prints by Singaporean artists, capturing the city’s charm through illustrations of native flora.

The hotel’s 46 suites each feature a spacious lounge and expansive terrace, including the pinnacle of the Conrad Suite: spanning 210 square meters, it features a primary bedroom with lavish amenities, complete with a walk-in closet and a steam shower, a generous living and entertainment area, a kitchenette and a dining room for eight. It also connects to two separate guest rooms, each with its individual entrance.

The hotel boasts three tranquil spaces for relaxation and contemplation: an outdoor pool nestled amidst verdant alcoves, a well-equipped fitness centre for mindful exercise, and an Executive Lounge with serene balconies. Fourteen event venues, including the grand Royal Pavilion Ballroom of 583 square meters, provide variety and versatility for meetings, celebrations and weddings.

Guided by the brand’s commitment to redefining luxury through impactful experiences, Conrad Singapore Orchard curates purposeful interactions and genuine explorations that allow travelers to connect deeply with both themselves and the destination.

Experiences at Conrad Singapore Orchard include the Edible Garden Walk, an immersive journey from the hotel to the country’s first and only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Singapore Botanical Gardens. Led by local arborists and botanists, guests will uncover edible botanicals that define the Singaporean landscape while nurturing a profound connection with nature.

A signature Sleep-to-Wake Ritual transforms the nightly turndown into a mindful experience. This includes a calming pre-sleep tea crafted from local botanicals, an in-room guided sound bath to relax the mind and body, and an extensive pillow menu that provides tailored comfort for serene slumbers and rejuvenating resets. The Morning Intention Session by the pool features modern fitness and wellness classes.

Conrad Singapore Orchard’s 10 restaurants and bars are connected by a focus on authenticity. The bold artistry of the hotel’s culinary and bartending team is shared with guests through the selection of crafted experiences, behind-the-scenes tasting tours and workshops.

Basilico is a vibrant communal destination with an Italian soul, serving fresh and seasonal Italian cuisine complemented by a modern vermouth and cocktail bar. Michelin-starred Summer Palace stands as a testament to the artistry of Cantonese cuisine elevated to sophisticated heights.

Meanwhile, Manhattan, lauded among the world’s best bars and home to the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse where its specialty cocktails are barrel-aged, transports guests to New York’s Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking.

Tea Lounge showcases afternoon teas that spotlight regional botanicals with English and local specialities, while Dolcetto offers a casual day-to-night Italian dining experience from handcrafted pastries to pizzettas, coffee to cocktails.

Conrad Singapore Orchard is part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest loyalty program for Hilton’s 22 distinct hotel brands.
