Home to a unique blend of nature and architecture, mouthwatering cuisine, and a burgeoning luxury fashion scene, Singapore has quickly become a destination worth adding to your travel list. The visa process is relatively easy for GCC residents and nationals, with a 7.5-hour flight from the UAE transporting you to the world’s second-best airport, Singapore Changi.

A scenic ride from the airport brings you to the heart of the city on Orchard Road, where Como Metropolitan stands surrounded by a host of high fashion stores. For the unfamiliar, Orchard Road is the ultimate retail and shopping destination in Singapore, offering visitors everything from boutiques to malls and eateries. The sleek hotel is as stylish as its neighborhood and is located in Como Orchard, a new concept by Singapore’s own Como Group. Launched late last year, the hotel is the first Como Metropolitan in Singapore, and marks a homecoming for the family-owned portfolio of luxury lifestyle companies led by founder Christina Ong.

Spanning across the 19 floors of Como Orchard are various experiences meant to make your stay in Singapore one to remember. Think, fashion, wellness, gastronomy, and hospitality in one, or as the group calls it, a “Como-curated life”. Starting with the hotel, Como Metropolitan features 156 light-filled rooms equipped with contemporary furnishings, as well as a rooftop pool and bar with views of the bustling city. Two floors at the Como Orchard have been dedicated to the style-savvy guests by Club21 which offers seasonal collections and hosts pop-ups. The 742 sqm boutique houses womenswear, menswear, kidswear, and jewelry, from brands like Alaïa, Balmain, Oscar De La Renta, Simone Rocha, The Row, and many more.

Those seeking a momentary escape from city life need only to step down to the fourth floor, where Como Shambhala invites guests to a calming space designed to evoke the healing qualities of water by Milan-based architect, Paola Navone of Otto Studio. The 9,000 sqft wellness haven has state-of-the-art facilities for a gym with exercise classes, a spa, and therapy rooms, as well as tailored treatments by experts. Launched earlier this year, Como Shambhala and Como Hotels & Resorts’ collaborative Sleep Dreams initiative also ensures guests get back on track with their rest. The SleepHub® technology uses “neuroscience and psychoacoustic sound technology to gently steer the minds through optimal sleep cycle.”

No hotel is complete without its culinary offerings, and Como Orchard offers something very special. A gem among its dining options is Cédric Grolet Singapore, the internationally acclaimed French pastry chef’s first location in Asia. Make sure to reserve a spot for one of its many beautifully crafted pastries inspired by fruits and flowers, alongside sandwiches and an extensive tea menu. Another highlight is Cote Singapore, the Michelin-starred restaurant’s first international address outside the US, which combines the beloved Korean barbeque experience with that of an American steakhouse. Helmed by Simon Kim, Cote Singapore offers prime beef cuts and a grape list that was nominated by the James Beard Foundation. For all-day dining, Como Cuisine has comfort favorites and classics from Asia and beyond, with a focus on delectable Singaporean cuisine.

From style and luxury to wellness and comfort, Como Orchard and Como Metropolitan are sure to take care of their guests’ every need in extraordinary ways.
