Marriott International has inked an agreement with IOI Properties Group, a Malaysian property developer, to manage the W Singapore – Marina View, a new 350-room luxury hotel. The hotel will be part of a 51-storey mixed-use development on the 99-year leasehold Marina View site in Marina Bay, acquired by IOI for $1.508 billion in September 2021.
Atop the W hotel, the project will feature the Marina View Residences, a 683-unit luxury condo. Construction is set to begin by year-end, with the hotel anticipated to open in late 2028. This partnership marks the establishment of the second W Hotels in Singapore, aiming to redefine the iconic Marina Bay district with an evolved design and dynamic programming.
The W Singapore – Marina View is expected to showcase its Whatever/Whenever service philosophy, according to Oriol Montal, Marriott International Managing Director of Luxury Asia Pacific (excluding China). IOI Properties Group CEO Lee Yeow Seng foresees the project responding to the escalating demand for luxury lifestyle hotels, transforming the guest experience in leisure, entertainment, and gastronomy within the iconic Marina Bay district.
