Bayview International Hotels & Resorts announces the opening of its flagship hotel in Singapore, 30 Bencoolen. Formerly known as Bayview Hotel Singapore, the hotel underwent an extensive $20 million transformation of the hotel over a year.
Centrally located within the vibrant Arts & Cultural district in downtown Singapore, the hotel is a short stroll away from Bras Basah, Dhoby Ghaut, and Bencoolen MRT stations, major attractions and shopping malls.30 Bencoolen aims to grow and harness the potential of the latest technology-based solutions – from mobile platforms to communicate directly with the hotel team, a scale-able technology backbone to meet future needs, to work and family-friendly touches.The hotel’s transformation has achieved Singapore’s first hotel in harnessing the power of IoT, seamlessly connecting guest rooms with the operations team to deliver a faultless stay experience. All guest rooms are now equipped with Smart Room Control Units that proactively monitor and “communicate” every room’s status and any defects with the door locks, lighting and air-conditioning to the operations team in real time before a guest’s experience is impacted. This initiative also means that staff are less distracted by mundane checks and inspections, and more focused on hotel guests. Guests will also be able to communicate directly and make enquiries to the hotel team via Whatsapp.Guests can also opt for rooms with an outdoor balcony for their own private alfresco dining experience. Free WiFi throughout the hotel (only a single login is required), a Handy Phone which provides access to free local and international calls to six countries, a master switch for each room and a self-laundry service are among the features that 30 Bencoolen offers.Guests can enjoy the facilities in the Fitness Room, or chill out at the rooftop swimming pool and Jacuzzi. For corporate needs, 30 Bencoolen offers a variety of intimate and medium-sized meeting spaces for up to 150 people.Embracing the concept of a familiar and welcoming respite from the city bustle, LOCAL Restaurant & Bar offers casual all-day dining with hearty culinary creations within a comfortable space conducive for interactions. LOCAL presents a thoughtfully curated menu that goes back to basics yet transcend the norm, from the use of unconventional ingredients to creative dips that infuse an added dimension to the gastronomical experience.To mark the opening of 30 Bencoolen, the hotel is offering a special 30% discount off best available rates for all room categories, with complimentary breakfast for room guests, from now till end February 2018.Information extracted from press release issued by Asia PR Werkz on behalf of 30 Bencoolen
