Amara Singapore in downtown Singapore unveils contemporary room redesign

Amara Singapore, located at downtown Singapore at Tanjong Pagar, unveils the refurbishment of its guest rooms, with all 389 newly-redesigned rooms having undergone sophisticated enhancements that reflect the hotel’s function as a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city for guests.

The new contemporary theme design captures the hotel’s role as the vibrant social epicentre of the neighbourhood, drawing inspiration from the vibrant gamut of cultural relics in the hotel’s vicinity. These include the traditional hawker stalls at Tanjong Pagar Plaza built in 1976, conserved shophouses found throughout the Chinatown Historic District dating back to the 19th century, and heritage trees in the nearby Duxton Plain Park.

“Amara Singapore has seen immense transformation in the past 38 years since it was first established in 1986. Evolving alongside Tanjong Pagar over the past four decades, we have adopted a design philosophy that pays homage to the hotel’s culturally rich environs,” said Dawn Teo, Senior Vice President of Amara Hotels and Resorts.

“This refurbishment is not merely a routine exercise of upgrading but a reinvigoration of our commitment to luxury and innovation while not losing sight of our roots as one of the first hotels in Tanjong Pagar to cater to business travellers.”

The guest room corridors at Amara Singapore offer a tactile journey through the area's rich historical charm. Intricate wallcoverings are inspired by the textured alleyways of neighbouring shophouses, seamlessly blending past and present.

This motif continues into the guestroom, where earthy and natural textures inspire the selection of materials. Light and dark timber laminate, tan leather, and black metal complement each other. The bathrooms feature handcrafted porcelain tiles, evoking the charm of those found in traditional shophouses and adding an artisanal touch to the interior.

The interplay between wood, earthy material, and green accents is a symphony of design elements from the iconic historical stalwarts in the vicinity. This is further encapsulated by the lamps curated for each room, with their lamp shades evoking the quiet elegance of Chinese calligraphy and art found throughout the Chinatown Historic District.
