Singapore's Pop-Up Art Hotel


For 32 nights only, visitors to Singapore will be able to book a night in a luxury hotel suite built around the city's iconic landmark, The Merlion.

The 8-metre tall lion sculpture which sits normally on the mouth of the Singapore river will be incorporated into the interiors of a temporary suite designed by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi. Members of the public will be able to view the suite during the day and are able to book the suite for overnight stays. Rooms come with a double-bed, a bathroom and a butler.

The project is part of the Singapore Biennale, a contemporary art event which showcases the works of 60 artists from 30 countries in the city's emblematic spaces. The latest initiative comes as Singapore aims to rebrand itself as a viable destination for tourists.

Room starts at S$150 for a night. Reservations will open on Monday 28 Feb for stays between 4 April to 5 May.
