Marriott and IOI Properties to launch W Hotel in Marina Bay district

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Marriott International has signed an agreement with Bursa Malaysia-listed property developer IOI Properties Group to operate a new 350-room luxury hotel, W Singapore – Marina View.

The hotel will be housed within a 51-storey, mixed-use development at the 99-year leasehold, 84,110 sq ft Marina View site, which IOI purchased for $1.508 billion in September 2021.

Perched on top of the W hotel is the 683-unit luxury condo Marina View Residences. The project is led by Architects 61, with interiors by Hachem Design. Construction of the mixed-use development is scheduled to begin by the end of this year, with the hotel projected to operate by late 2028.

The signing marks the opening of the second W Hotels in Singapore, after the 240-room W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, which opened in September 2012.

"W Singapore – Marina View is anticipated to redefine Singapore's iconic skyline with its evolved design, dynamic programming and Whatever/Whenever service philosophy," said Oriol Montal, Marriott International managing director of Luxury Asia Pacific (excluding China).

IOI Properties Group CEO Lee Yeow Seng believes that W Singapore – Marina View "will answer to the growing demands of luxury lifestyle hotels, which is set to transform guest experience in leisure, entertainment and gastronomy within the iconic Marina Bay district."
