Singapore Tourism Board looks for backer for Marina South wellness attraction

Singapore Tourism Board looks for backer for Marina South wellness attraction
July 8, 2024

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has launched a Concept and Price Revenue tender to develop and operate a wellness attraction on four-hectare site at city’s Marina South Coastal site.

The attraction, a key part of STB’s strategy to grow wellness tourism, aims to offer holistic and immersive wellness experiences as part of Singapore’s tourism offerings for visitors.

Located prominently along the waterfront, the wellness attraction is intended to be one of the key attractions in the precinct when completed, complementing other places of interest such as Gardens by the Bay, Founders’ Memorial in Bay East and Marina Barrage.

The STB is looking for proposals with innovative, high-quality concepts that can positively impact physical, emotional, or mental wellness. These may include therapeutic art, tech-based offerings such as floatation or light and frequencies-based therapies, and complementary health and alternative therapies, as well as fitness or recovery-related activities, such as indoor and outdoor water or equipment-based activities.

Additionally, the STB also wants the wellness attraction to implement a strong pipeline of regular, high-quality wellness-themed events or programs on its premises, as well as in public spaces within the wellness attraction or in the surrounding areas which will appeal to both tourists and residents.

Commenting on the plans for the Marina South Coastal Site, Carrie Kwik, the STB’s Executive Director, World Expo and Special Projects, stated “with the rising demand for more restorative and wellness-related experiences, we believe Singapore is well-placed to be a leading Urban Wellness destination that prioritises holistic well-being.

“The tender marks a significant stride towards realising our wellness ambition as we leverage Singapore’s existing strengths in accessibility, technology and as a strong business hub. This wellness attraction will contribute to Singapore’s tourism sector by giving travellers more compelling reasons to extend their stay and spend more in Singapore. Locals will also get to enjoy the wide range of wellness offerings available.”

The tender is open to local and international bidders, and will run for a period of three months, with the closing date for the submission of proposals set for 4th October 2024.
