Far East Hospitality expansion caters for wellness and spa sectors
April 21, 2021

The Far East Hospitality hotel group has announced its regional expansion plans following the opening of two properties – The Clan Hotel Singapore and Quincy Hotel Melbourne, in the first quarter of 2021.

Expanding in Singapore
Looking ahead, Far East Hospitality is expanding into the resort and spa category with the opening of Oasia Resort Sentosa in 2021.

The 191-key property consists of Suites, Wellness Premier Rooms, and Deluxe Rooms, and will be the fourth property on Sentosa island managed and operated by Far East Hospitality. Guests will have the opportunity to experience a wellness lifestyle that promotes a holistic state of being, where one's mental, physical and emotional health are in sync. They are able to participate in activities such as spa treatments, fitness routines, mind-body practices, as well as connect with nature. Wellness journals, self-care checklists, and access to a collection of guided meditation audio are amongst the many items that are made available to guests during their stay.

Commenting on the expansion plans, Far East Orchard's Group Chief Executive, Alan Tang notes "we have not let the pandemic detract us from our goal of growing our hotel portfolio through Far East Hospitality. We are looking ahead and positioning ourselves for the eventual recovery, by deepening our presence in markets where there is a long-term positive outlook for hospitality and tourism."

Far East Hospitality expansion in Indonesia
Far East Hospitality has signed a Strategic Alliance Agreement with ARTOTEL Group – Indonesia's leading boutique hospitality and lifestyle group. The Group covers a wide range of offerings, including integrated hospitality, food & beverage, creative event management, and artsy merchandising. Under the terms of the partnership, both parties will collaborate across operations, branding, and training, as well as support business growth across markets.

Doubling its portfolio of hotels in Japan

Slated for opening in June this year, Far East Village Hotel Yokohama will be Far East Hospitality and the Village brand's second property in Japan. This opening comes almost a year after the opening of Far East Village Hotel Ariake in July 2020. The 277-key property will be managed by Far East Hospitality under a Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) with Far East Organization.

Far East Hospitality owns more than 10 hospitality assets and operates a combined portfolio of more than 16,500 rooms under its management across 100 hotels and serviced residences in eight countries – Australia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore, with more in its development pipeline.

Far East Hospitality is a 70-30 joint venture formed in 2013 between Far East Orchard Limited (a listed company under Far East Organization) and The Straits Trading Company Limited. In the same year, Far East Hospitality, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Far East Hospitality Investments (Australia) Pte Ltd, completed a 50-50 joint venture with Australia's Toga Group to form Toga Far East Hotels (TFE Hotels).
