Compass Offices (Singapore Land Tower) / Studio M Hotel –
Being a globally connected, multi-cultural city, Singapore is widely regarded as one of the world’s most dynamic places for work, living and business.
It’s little wonder then that the Lion City is the regional hub of choice for many leading multinationals, a fact that has helped spur many opportunities for local business-support companies.
Serviced office provider Compass Offices is one such entity. Its recently opened central-Singapore branch – it’s fourth in the city – raises the bar in the short-term commercial space arena.
Housed on the 30th floor of the centrally located Singapore Land Tower, it also offers easy access to transportation, with the Raffles Place MRT Station a stone’s throw away.
The 14,000 square-foot facility is fitted with the latest gadgetry. Office clients can use a dedicated reception desk, secretarial and concierge services, communal spaces and well-equipped meeting rooms. The offices can be rented on a monthly, daily or hourly basis.
Another trendy business destination is Studio M, a new hotel from the folks at Millennium and Copthorne Hotels. Designed for the new generation of savvy business and leisure travellers, the venue offers refined accommodation and a high degree of connectivity, technology and top-notch hospitality.
The centrepiece of the designer hotel is an open-air tropical deck with private spaces for informal meetings and corporate gatherings. Most of the 365 loft guestrooms have a view of the deck below, with each of the four types of modish rooms boasting flat screen LCD televisions, free wireless internet and plug-and-play connectivity.
Other offerings include a 25-metre lap pool, an open-air gym and three food and beverage outlets ideal for gatherings such as corporate events. Hotel guests can even have information about dining and nightlife options sent to their mobile devices.
Located in the heart of the Robertson Quay entertainment precinct, the hotel is near the Central Business District, with Orchard Road, Chinatown, Clarke Quay and Boat Quay all within spitting distance.Originally published in South China Morning Post, January 2012
