Amoy Hotel is situated in a unique location with a collection of shophouses dating back more than 170 years at Far East Square. It was once the landing site of Chinese immigrants arriving by boat to seek better fortunes and a better life in the far east.
With the historically rich backdrop and a bustling location at the heart of CBD, Amoy Hotel is ready to give the guests an experiential glimpse into the Chinese Diaspora of years past. The first touch point for the guests will be the AMOY’s entrance, which is the Fuk Tai Chi Museum, a temple built to honour the gods for their safe voyage when our forefathers arrived in Singapore.
Strong heritage items used in the past can be seen at the hotel lobby
The experience continues into the interiors of the hotel where they are designed to mirror the life, love and tribulations of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants. As the rooms is converted from the shophouses, no two rooms are alike, in terms of layout and furnishings. Heritage accents with carefully selected furniture like traditional Chinese stools and porcelain basin can be found too.
