Singapore, Singapore, August 9, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / The Standard, a hip hotel brand with locations in the U.S., U.K. and Maldives, is expanding into key markets in Asia with the announcement of The Standard, Singapore on Orange Grove Road.
The Standard, Singapore, slated to open in 2023, represents the latest destination for the brand in Southeast Asia, following The Standard, Hua Hin, set to open in November 2021, and The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, which will open in 2022.
The hotel in Singapore will house 143 rooms, along with an infinity pool and a pool bar set within a lush botanical courtyard.
