Six-month makeover for Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

Singapore's legendary Mandarin Oriental hotel is temporarily closing its doors to undergo a six-month transformation. Re-opening in September 2023, the hotel will offer a brand-new look and feel.

The hotel's multi-million-dollar transformation is set to take place across all fronts, including a complete redesign and refitting of interiors, from grand lobby and guest rooms to the hotel's award-winning food and beverage venues.

World-renowned interior design firm Design Wilkes -- the creative force behind Mandarin Oriental's properties in Dubai, Bangkok and Tokyo -- has been commissioned to lead the extensive transformation. The redesign will complement the property's iconic architecture, designed by esteemed architect John C Portman whose creation remains a distinctive part of the Singapore skyline.

During the transformation, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore's social media platforms will be alive with compelling content honouring the incredible legacy of the hotel related by new and long-term employees; regular peeks into the hotel transformation process; and the release of early room, dining and spa booking offers ahead of September 2023.
