With an embrace of the future and a nod to the past, The Clan Hotel Singapore by Far East Hospitality opened in March 2021 in the colorful Telok Ayer/Amoy district. Sleekly modernistic in design, the hotel rises 30 stories, with 324 sophisticated rooms that are beautifully appointed with a neutral palette that is both welcoming and relaxing. Each room offers state-of the-art technology and contemporary style just moments away from the city’s commercial hub. Integral to The Clan Hotel Singapore’s philosophy are stories about this heritage area of renovated shophouses and the traditional culture that thrived here for generations.
As part of that mission, guests in the luxe MASTER Series of accommodations—the Grand Premier and Premier rooms—experience personalized service from the hotel’s Clan Keepers, who are responsible for concierge services like arranging luxurious transfers, shopping trips and reservations. Clan Keepers also have intimate knowledge of the surrounding neighborhood, providing complimentary guided tours of the local heritage sites while sharing stories, lore and information about museums, temples, food centers and other important sites. In addition, guests will embark on a traditional welcome tea ceremony featuring an exclusive blend of the hotel’s signature Nanyang Tea Ritual paired with traditional Chinese bean pastries, as well as enjoy the luxury of personalizing the in-room minibar from a selection of premium snacks and beverages.
Guests also interact with the Clan Collective, made up of craftsmen, artists and artisans who keep traditional culture alive. For example, there is an artwork in the lobby by multidisciplinary artist Grace Tan; tastings of The Orient Brew, a signature beer with a hint of white chrysanthemum crafted by master brewer Ivan Yeo; and uniforms designed by menswear boutique founder Chong Han San. Along with these programs on the hotel grounds, guests have the opportunity to take part in cultural activities elsewhere—from porcelain craft bento workshops and cultural culinary classes to presentations at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.
Singapore is known for its fabulous and varied cuisine, and QĪN Restaurant & Bar at The Clan Hotel Singapore reflects that culinary excellence. The dining room on levels four and five showcases an elegantly rustic Chinese interior and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to one of the city’s most atmospheric streets, while the menu highlights innovative versions of Asian classics like chili crab crostini, siphon mushroom tea and sang mein, a noodle dish.
In an unusual arrangement, MASTER Series guests can enjoy The Clan Daily Special that features satay, bak kut teh and Singapore laksa—all-time-favorite local hawker fare. This in-room dining experience celebrates the successful inscription of Singapore’s hawker culture onto the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
There is no better view of Singapore new and old than the panorama on level 30, where the Sky Gym is equipped with the latest equipment as well as fitness-on-demand personal trainers. The gem on this floor is the Sky Pool, which invites guest to swim, relax in the Jacuzzi or simply laze in a semi-submerged lounge chair. International guests with early arrivals or late departures can refresh and wind down at the Sky Suites with shower facilities while waiting for their rooms.
One of the Far East Collection of culturally inspired hotels, The Clan Hotel Singapore epitomizes the blend of modern luxury with appreciation for a traditional sense of community. The combination is unexpectedly powerful and restorative in our fast-paced, ever-changing world.
