[Sydney, Australia] 19, November 2015 – Far East Hospitality (FEH) is pleased to announce that two of its Singapore properties have made the top ten in trivago’s Singapore Hotel Ranking 2016. AMOY has once again topped the illustrious list and the family friendly Village Residence Robertson Quay has come in at number seven.
AMOY is the only boutique hotel to make the list edging past notable international and Singapore-based hotel chains including Raffles Singapore and Capella Singapore.
Both the AMOY and the Village Residence Robertson Quay are extremely popular with Australian travelers who consistently give both properties positive reviews on trivago.
“We are thrilled to have both the AMOY and the Village Residence Robertson Quay named as trivago’s Top Hotels in Singapore this year. On top of the recent win for ‘Top Hotel in Singapore’ and ‘Best Hotel for Service in Singapore’ in TripAdvisor’s 2015 Traveller’s Choice awards, it is especially gratifying for AMOY to top trivago’s ranking within such a short time frame. At FEH we aim to provide the highest quality service and room offering for mid-tier travellers and this is testament to the offering we bring to travelers in Singapore.” said Mr Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive Officer of Far East Hospitality.
AMOY was named after Singapore’s Fujianese people, who came from the Chinese city of the same name. AMOY displays a historically-rich backdrop of Chinese culture, with each of its 37 rooms named after surnames like Chen and Huang, and decorated with traditional furniture. AMOY also embraces and celebrates the migrant history of Singapore by incorporating a museum that traces the early footsteps of Chinese immigrants into the design and layout of the contemporary hotel – a feature the New York Times has called charming and calming. AMOY has created a vibrant “Old Meets New, East Meets West” theme for its guests with an interior that has been designed to mirror the life of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants. AMOY is in close proximity to business, leisure and dining locations. The hotel is also attached to the shopping mall, Far East Square.
The AMOY was also named Singapore’s top hotel in TripAdvisor’s 2015 and 2013 Annual Traveler’s Choice Awards. In 2015, the hotel was also awarded with TripAdvisor’s Annual Traveler’s Choice Awards "best hotel for service in Singapore".
