Combining intimacy and elegance, the enhancement sees the return of cutting edge interior designers Hirsch Bedner Associates, who led the renovations of their Jiang-Nan Chun restaurant in 2016 and the opening of the Hotel in 1994.
Influenced by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a lush UNESCO World Heritage Site, the contemporary interiors of the newly renovated rooms feature a natural colour palette dusted with cool blue tones and lime green accents, inspired by the water and tropical lotus leaves of the Garden’s Swan Lake. Each room features a mural wall composition of traditional Peranakan tiles, adding an artistic touch and reminiscent of Singapore’s rich and multicultural heritage.

Today, Seletar Airport is Singapore’s second civilian airport, serving general aviation (such as training, medical evacuation & MRO flights) and business aviation (private jets) users. The current terminal will be torn down when the new facility opens.
The new, two-storey terminal is sited at the eastern side of Seletar Airport. It will have a gross floor area of 9,500 square metres, of which 500 square metres will be dedicated to serving business aviation passengers.
Designed for around 700,000 passenger movements per annum, the building will be significantly larger than the current terminal, which handled about 26,700 passenger movements in 2015. This will support the relocation of scheduled turboprop flights from Changi Airport to Seletar Airport upon the completion of the new terminal in end-2018.
The layout of the new terminal is dictated by clean lines and a functional design to keep the travel experience simple and efficient for all passengers. Passenger operations will take place on the ground floor, with a clear separation between the departure and arrival areas. To handle scheduled commercial flights, the departure area will have 4 check-in counters, four immigration counters, two security screening stations and a gate holdroom which can seat close to 200 passengers. Departing passengers will be able to go through check-in, immigration and security screening in a fuss-free manner via a straightforward route, enabling a quick and stress-free boarding process for passengers.
Passengers travelling on chartered business jets and private jets can look forward to a private drop-off area and a dedicated check-in area where they will be able to enjoy quick pre-departure clearance in a private and exclusive setting. The terminal will also feature amenities such a lounge area and dedicated immigration and security screening areas for these passengers.
Drawing inspiration from its lush and serene surroundings, the new terminal will sport a modern tropical look on the faÃ§ade and in the interiors. The design blends warm woody tones with a theme of nature, with a landscaped garden in the middle of the terminal. Accessible from the drop-off area at the entrance, the garden will provide a calm oasis for departing passengers and well-wishers.
On the airside, passengers will be able to board their flights conveniently with 3 aircraft parking stands adjacent to the terminal. This reduces the need for passengers to be bussed, enabling greater operational efficiency and faster aircraft turnaround time. The three aircraft parking stands will be supplemented by another 60 located at the rest of the airport.
A new and bigger Arrival Hall has opened at Changi Airport Terminal 1, increasing the terminal’s floor area by 35% to 8,500m2.
The new hall is part of a larger expansion plan for T1, estimated to boost the terminal’s handling capacity to 24 million passenger movements per annum. The terminal served about 3.2 million passengers in the first quarter of 2018.
With the recent opening of the new arrival zone; travellers will collect their bags and walk down a passageway before entering the public area which used to be the road outside the terminal.
Within the arrival hall is a new garden featuring palm trees of up to 15m in height, a feature pool and a diversity of flora incorporated with dragonfly topiaries and sculptures. This is the airport’s first garden situated in the public area.
