M+S and Hyatt Hotels & Resorts to launch Andaz hotel in Singapore

JLL has successfully negotiated the Management Agreement between M+S Pte Ltd and Hyatt Hotels & Resorts to introduce Andaz Singapore, a luxury, lifestyle hotel in the exclusive DUO development.

​SINGAPORE, 27 January 2015JLL’s Hotel & Hospitality Group is pleased to announce that M+S Pte. Ltd. has signed an agreement with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts to launch the Andaz hotel brand in Singapore as part of a new exclusive mixed use development.

JLL’s Hotel & Hospitality Group acted as exclusive advisor to the developers of the project, Ophir-Rochor Hotel Pte. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of M+S Pte Ltd., which is owned by Malaysia’s strategic investment fund, Khazanah, and Singapore’s investment company, Temasek. 

The new Andaz hotel will form part of the 160,000 square metre landmark development known as DUO, which will comprise prime Grade A office space, 660 premium residences and a unique retail gallery, all set within a park-like environment. Located in Singapore’s up-and-coming Ophir-Rochor district, the development is directly connected to the Bugis MRT Station and is 15 minutes away from Singapore’s Changi Airport.

“Following a rigorous selection process, we’re delighted to collaborate with Hyatt as we introduce its first Andaz hotel to Singapore as an integral part of the DUO development,” said Tan Sri Azman Yahya, Chairman of the Board of M+S. “Andaz Singapore at DUO marks a significant milestone for M+S in our efforts to transform Singapore’s cityscape through our two iconic projects: DUO and Marina One. When completed, DUO will offer a distinctive 24/7 live-work-play environment and reaffirm Singapore’s leading position as the region’s pre-eminent investment destination.” 

Located in the Bugis and Kampong Glam conservation area of Singapore, one of the city-state’s most historic neighbourhoods, the proposed 15-story hotel will feature more than 340 guestrooms and suites. Designed by award-winning architecture firm Buro Ole Scheeren, the Andaz Singapore will sit on top of Grade-A offices and is due to open in 2017.  

Scott Hetherington, CEO, Asia Pacific, JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group, said: “Buoyed by its strong position as a travel and business hub in Asia, Singapore continues to attract interest from the world’s biggest hotel brands. As one of Hyatt’s most innovative hotel concepts, the new Andaz Singapore will be an exciting addition to Singapore’s hotel landscape and a jewel in the crown for the DUO development.”

David Udell, group president – Asia Pacific for Hyatt said: “Singapore is one of the main business and commercial centers of Asia, with robust demand for both business and leisure travel. Guest feedback and insights reveal a preference for a more personalised and inspired experience. We are confident that Andaz Singapore’s unscripted and refreshing take on the lifestyle hotel will appeal to business and leisure travellers alike. It is our pleasure to collaborate with M+S on this exciting development, and we now look forward to delivering Hyatt’s promise of high standards in accommodation, services and authentic local hospitality to our loyal guests.”

Hyatt launched the modern luxury lifestyle Andaz brand in 2007 and currently operates 12 Andaz hotels worldwide.
