The first phase of [email protected], a pilot short-stay facility designed to support safe business exchanges between international business travellers and Singapore residents, was launched last week by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Sweet Keat of Singapore.
The facility aims to support the progressive reopening of the nation’s borders and spur business and economic activities, while safeguarding the local community from the Covid-19 pandemic. It allows business travelers flying into Singapore to meet Singapore counterparts without having to serve quarantine on arrival.
[email protected] is launching with 150 premium guest rooms and 40 meeting rooms that can accommodate a range of meeting sizes, from four to 22 attendees. When fully completed later this year, the facility will have the potential capacity to host some 1,300 business travellers at any one time. Room rates start from S$384 and includes transfers, meals and PCR tests on Days 3, 7 and 14 of the stay, where applicable. Bookings can be made here
