Travel News: QT Hotels & Resorts to launch first international hotel in Singapore

Must read

QT Hotels & Resorts is currently located in 10 cities in Australia and New Zealand, such as Auckland, Melbourne and Perth, and is known for its vibrant interiors with pops of colourful in furniture and decor.

The brand is also known for its creative take on hospitality. Some guest-facing staff are playfully known as Directors of Chaos, who greet guests upon arrival and checkout, and assist with their needs, such as by offering tailored suggestions on how best to explore the city.

At QT Sydney, Directors of Chaos once wore bright red wigs and leather outfits to match the hotel’s eccentric and energetic brand.

They have since traded those in for bespoke garments printed with waratahs – a native plant – by Australian fashion house Romance Was Born, known for its elaborate designs.

General manager of QT Singapore Doron Whaite says: “At QT, we keep the luxury and add the magic of quirk and playfulness – something we feel will bring a new energy to the Singapore hospitality scene. Guest rooms will undergo a complete floor-to-ceiling transformation, mixing prints with textures, wallpapers and colour.”

The hotel, which Mr Whaite says will retain the neo-classical facade and architecture of the heritage building, will have 134 rooms, ranging in size from 44 sq m to 90 sq m.

Room rates start at $499 a night for a QT King room with a king-size bed and amenities such as an espresso machine and a Dyson hairdryer.

Bookings can be made from May 23 for stays from Sept 16. For more information, go to qtsingapore.com
