Sustainable living at Singapore’s environmentally-friendly accommodation

Whether for work or leisure, base yourself at the Citadines Raffles Place in Singapore to experience a thriving, forward-thinking green oasis in the heart of the city-state

The city-state of Singapore has always been a leader when it comes to sustainability. By 2030, more than 50 per cent of the land will be dedicated to nature parks, with the government planning to plant more than one million trees across the island. And by 2050, the ambitious (yet achievable) goal is to have net zero emissions. It’s fair to say, Singapore is one of the greenest cities on the planet. And this commitment to Mother Nature is embraced at all levels of society, from the people in power to the people on the street, not to mention the savvy businesses in between. Not in the least Citadines Raffles Place Singapore, arguably the most serene property you’ll ever check in to.

Despite its central location within the biophilic CapitaSpring development – you’re just a two-minute walk to Raffles Place MRT station, and a five-minute walk to Boat Quay, with fabulous restaurants and shops on your doorstep – the serviced apartment complex is like a rainforest respite, replete with more than 38,000 plants creating an urban jungle in the aptly named Green Oasis. Stepping into this precinct instantly promotes calm – it’s a place where you can enjoy yoga sessions, sweat it out on the jungle gym or work in ‘ideation nests’ while soaking up views over Marina Bay and Singapore’s stunning skyline. This is your green entrée to the rest of the lush property, some 299 units across eight sky-scraping floors.

The studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, and loft apartments are the ideal place to stay for those looking to linger in Singapore for a minimum of six nights. And why wouldn’t you want to – whether you’re visiting to explore the island for leisure, touching down for work or even looking to relocate?

Regardless of your reason to visit or which space you check in to, you’re guaranteed niceties like fully stocked kitchens, dedicated work nooks, enormous rain showers and floor-to-ceiling windows offering stellar views; stay in larger apartments and you’ll also luxuriate in stylish living rooms and dining areas, while lofts offer the advantage of a landscaped outdoor terrace, to bring you even closer to nature. And if you want to separate work life from play life, the lobby of the property has ample ergonomic spaces where you can set up your laptop for a day (or more) to create a flexible office environment. Sometimes all you need is a change of head (and physical) space to make your day all the more productive.

When you’re checking in somewhere for an extended period of time, you also want your surroundings to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Like a home away from home. This is where renowned design firm Takenouchi Webb comes in, creating spaces that are at once stylish and serene – think clean lines, geometric forms, natural materials and earthy colours. There’s also commissioned art work throughout, including the CapitaScape stainless steel artwork that features Singapore’s most historic buildings and landscapes by local artist and illustrator, Tan Zi Xi. And, in the lobby, the award-winning Clouds installation from Kvadrat, an interlocking fabric tile concept designed by internationally acclaimed French design company, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Because life is not all work and no play, Citadines Raffles Place Singapore is committed to enhancing and supporting your extra-curricular activities.

Burn some energy in the outdoor swimming pool (Singapore can get steamy, so you’ll want to cool off); on the running track; in the outdoor fitness park; or within the indoor gym. Then get set to dine alfresco using the indoor Residents’ Kitchen or the outdoor barbecue area – you can cook and mingle with other residents, or opt to book the spaces exclusively for private functions and events.

Like all Citadines properties, Citadines Raffles Place Singapore offers their brand  signature activ(‘activate’) program. Think of this as a tailored suite of offerings to make your days in Singapore as enjoyable as possible. That might be through joining daily yoga, meditation or kickboxing classes; by accessing workout programs, digitally; by exploring the neighbourhood with recommended cycling, running or coffee trails; or by attending networking sessions over complimentary drinks with your fellow residents.

And then there’s the other tasty brand signature, ‘For the Love of Coffee’ experience. This fun- (and caffeine-) fuelled program delivers exciting coffee-related experiences to guests via collaborations with the local community. Picture yourself grabbing a fresh and delicious brew from the Citadines’ self-serve coffee kiosk, or making the most of top local coffee joints – with exclusive perks offered to residents. Either way, it’s the most heart-starting way to begin (or end) your day. And the perfect perk to enhance your Citadines Raffles Place Singapore stay.
