Yotel to open in Singapore

The Standard Cabin of the Japanese-style Yotel at Gatwick airport in Gatwick, United Kingdom.

SINGAPORE - Yotel is to open in Singapore with a 600-cabin property on Orchard Road, the epicentre of the city state.

The hotel, which is due to open in 2018, will act as a springboard into Asia for Yotel, following the opening of its 669-cabin hotel in Times Square, New York.

Inspired by first class airline cabins, Yotel's cabins are uncompromisingly designed around guests to give them a bigger experience in a smaller space.

The intelligent use of space means guests can enjoy designed cabins in which to relax, refresh, connect and sleep - luxury bedding, rejuvenating monsoon rain showers, relaxing purple mood lighting and Yotel's "techno wall" with flat screen TV, multi power points and iPod connectivity.

As in all Yotels, super strength Wi-Fi throughout all the cabins and public spaces will be complimentary.
