SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - On Dec 1, international hospitality owner and operator Far East Hospitality will open its third hotel on Sentosa, The Barracks Hotel Sentosa. This follows the launch of its flagship 606-key Village Hotel Sentosa that targets families, and its 193-key The Outpost Hotel Sentosa which caters exclusively to adults, particularly couples.
The refurbished The Barracks Hotel Sentosa takes up two out of the six conserved heritage buildings, which made up a British military outpost back in 1904. One other building will be used as an Events Centre, while the remaining three are to be the Mess Hall, which is partly tenanted currently. The tenants include Japanese restaurant Hidemasa By Hide Yamamoto, Royal Taj which serves up an Indian fare, 7-Eleven, and Eurasian restaurant Quentin’s.
Just like Far East Hospitality’s two other hotels on Sentosa, The Barracks Hotel Sentosa is designed by architect and director Laurence Liew of Arc Studio Architecture + Urbanism, with the interior design of the rooms conceived by KKS International. Conceptualised in 2014, the restoration and internal alteration works for the hotel started at end-2015, while the groundworks itself began in mid-2018.
