Following independence acquired in 1965, Singapore has developed a model society which today is one of the well-reputed in all of Asia. Singapore’s incredible success is based on four fundamental values : economic growth, security, cleanliness and materialism.
Located on an island in the southernmost part of the Malaysian peninsula, Singapore measures 647.8 square kilometers and consists of 64 islands.
This city-state is often called or “the Manhattan of Asia”, or “Little Switzerland”, depending on whether one is referring to its economic growth or to its clean and orderly appearance!
Singapore is an effervescent city-state in total contrast with the typical Malaysian serene way of life. The favorite pastimes here are eating and shopping with a disdain for wasting even one precious minute. But this unique city is also a veritable model of social cohesion with several ethnic groups, religions and nationalities living together in total harmony.
Resolutely urban, Singapore has left very little place for nature during its rapid growth. There is nevertheless a botanic garden, but it’s the only true example of greenery in this metropolis of skyscrapers. The city however, aware of this shortcoming, has recently created more and more projects with ecology as a major element.
Creating a garden in the center of the city is nothing new. Creating a vertical garden which is also a hotel is another matter! The magnificent architectural gem known as the Parkroyal on Pickering has radically modified Singapore’s skyline with its green façade of hanging gardens.
This spectacular hotel in the heart of the city is more than just a technical achievement. The vegetation is not a pretext, but the center of a hotel project designed to create a green oasis in the center of Singapore. The challenge was to offer guests a relaxing site which was, at the same time, extremely contemporary in its design.
The Parkroyal is one of the rare establishments that respects the rules for sustainable development, and its eco-friendly aspect is far from being just a gadget. The use of wood for its construction, solar energy and recovery of rain water combine to make the hotel an ecological example. The Parkroyal owes its success to its extreme luxury with total respect for its environmental commitments.
The hotel has 367 rooms and suites, as well as a private club for guests who desire more intimacy and more personalized services. An entire floor of the Parkroyal is dedicated to wellness and to the spa.
Exclusivity and a sense of the spectacular can also be found on the top floor with an infinity swimming pool and a sky garden with a 360 degree view of Singapore. Even in a city known for its surprising exploits, the inhabitants continue to marvel at this incredible hotel.
Created and designed by the WOHA architectural firm, known for its environmental concerns, the Parkroyal is a very Asian and a very Singaporean hotel. Its semi-Baroque architecture that seems to do away with the limits between the exterior and the interior, is a new way of looking at the urban landscape in an era when city centers have a tendency to look alike.
