Singapore Somerset Bencoolen - Gym

Tick the boxes of space, amenities and location in one of the world’s busiest cities.

Known for its bustling streets and world-class food scene, Singapore is always a mainstay on any dream travel list. As a melting pot of culture, art, and architecture, the city-state is one of the most immersive destinations on earth, while the high-level career and educational opportunities also make it a dream destination for future expats around the globe.

Bencoolen district is one of Singapore’s most sought-after areas. Triangulated between the National Museum, the Sultan Mosque, and the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, the district is culturally vibrant and exceptionally situated: a stone’s throw from some of the country’s most beautiful sites but at a far enough distance from the CBD to provide a sense of respite.

Nestled within the Bencoolen district is a service residence of 110 apartments that promises to unlock the best of this vibrant country.

The Somerset Bencoolen Singapore

The Somerset Bencoolen Singapore is from Ascott, one of the world’s leading names in hospitality. Offering a variety of serviced accommodation, it is the perfect culmination of space, amenities, and location to help guests experience Singapore in all its glory.

With a minimum stay of six nights, The Somerset Bencoolen is ideal for business travellers and family vacations alike, with different room sizes able to cater to groups of all sizes. One and two bedroom residences are available as either deluxe or premier apartments, each with fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning, WiFi and TV.

While the spaces are all imbued with a sense of serenity, the site’s location still keeps guests within the beating pulse of the city, with key cultural sites, prestigious education facilities, and the Bencoolen MRT Station all within walking distance.

Making harmony second nature

The Bencoolen residence joins a list of other Somerset names which are dotted around the globe. Championing inclusivity and sustainability, the Somerset brand celebrates the coming together of people in an inviting and homely environment. Whether guests are visiting for work, school, or leisure, the Somerset apartments become a home away from home, providing beautiful spaces in busy locations which emphasises  the brand ethos of: “Where Harmony is Second Nature”. Across the Somerset collection, the brand signature provides a familiar and curated experience, such as the Somerset Sustainability Passport Programme where guests (children) are given ‘passport’ activity highlighting the brand touchpoints of sustainability as well suggested sites/places to visit.

Discover Singapore

Of these suggested sites, Bencoolen has many to choose from. Foodies can head to nearby Little India where colourful temples and a smorgasbord of spicy, sweet culinary treats can be found, or perhaps can visit Orchard Road, a shopping haven where everything from expansive brunch spreads to quaint and quiet cafes are dotted around the bustling street.

For a slice of Singapore’s rich cultural tapestry, the nearby National Gallery and Singapore Art Museum are both must-sees. Perfect for first-time visitors and regular tourists alike, these cultural institutions have rotating exhibitions with some of the most important pieces of Southeast Asian art the world has to offer. Striking temples and mosques are also beautiful sites to visit, where the rich and diverse history of Singapore could be explored.

Retail therapy is also on the menu for guests of the Somerset Bencoolen. Mustafa Shopping Centre, a 24-hour shopping mall, is just a 10-minute drive away, stocking everything from spices to gold, and electronic products to basketball shoes. High street and designer labels can be found at the aforementioned Orchard Road, where multiple shopping malls are just two train stops away.

A home away from home

For those days or afternoons where guests prefer to lay low, the Somerset Bencoolen has a comprehensive list of amenities to choose from. Guests can work up a sweat in the fully equipped gymnasium, while away the day in the lush outdoor garden, take a dip in the rooftop outdoor swimming pool, or let the kids run wild in the dedicated children’s wading pool and playground.

As one of the world’s most iconic destinations to live or visit, Singapore truly has something for everyone. And with so much to choose from, finding accommodation that offers space, location, amenities and respite can be hard to find. With Somerset Bencoolen, guests can unlock their Singapore adventures, experiencing all it has to offer while knowing they can come back and relax in their plush serviced apartments.

Ascott is celebrating the launch of Somerset Bencoolen with great rates and offers. Don’t miss your chance to be one of those to stay at the serviced residence, and dive into your dream Singapore escape.
