Up-and-Coming voco Orchard Singapore to Be First voco Hotel in SEA

Up-and-Coming voco Orchard Singapore Will Be the First-Ever voco Hotel in Southeast Asia

In Latin, “voco” means “to invite” and “call together”!

Running out of ideas on where you can put up for a much-needed respite in the Little Red Dot? Avid staycationers and tourists, rejoice! Singapore will house the first-ever voco hotel in Southeast Asia soon. It only means more accommodation options for locals and incoming travellers alike in the near future.

Slated to open in January 2022, voco Orchard Singapore is a collaboration between IHG Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Properties Limited (HPL). The premium brand of IHG was launched in 2018. Since then, it has quickly reached the milestone of 50 signed hotels, including some that are already up and running, in more than 20 countries — marking IHG’s fastest-ever global expansion.

What can guests look forward to at voco Orchard Singapore?

With 423 tastefully-appointed rooms, guests can get a taste of the world-renowned voco experience upon stepping into the facade. They can indulge in exclusive “me time” from the comfort of their own space or from the four multifarious restaurants and bars designed with the perfect ambience in mind. Whatever their pick, the dedicated voco hosts will spoil them silly. 

Fun fact: voco Orchard Singapore will rebrand from the 51-year-old Hilton Singapore, nestled in the heart of Orchard Road. As the hotel will be taking the Hilton’s place in the prime location, visitors will also be a stone’s throw away from a plethora of attractions and entertainments. Additionally, voco Orchard Singapore will be IHG’s 12th hotel in Singapore and its seventh brand in the country. It joins Regent, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express.

Besides, the upscale brand has signed its first all-suites property in Doha in Qatar. On top of that, the first new-build voco hotel has opened for business in Edinburgh, Scotland; and another in Nanjing, China is preparing to welcome guests later this year.

The brand’s global ambition: To open 200 voco hotels in leading urban and leisure locations within 10 years.
