La Residenza to open in Singapore this May 2008

Long staying visitors to Singapore will soon be able to enjoy two floors of stylish, new luxury accommodation at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel when La Residenza opens this May. Located on levels five and six of the hotel, La Residenza will feature 24 lofty, high-ceilinged one or two bedroom units, sweeping gallery-like corridors and a rich combination of contemporary design and luxurious touches.

With inviting interiors designed by award-winning and internationally acclaimed Warner Wong Design, each room will feature a blend of natural materials and contrasting textures. Hip without being haughty, the design offers functional originality, incorporating a range of imported materials in elements including custom-made furniture and carpeted flooring. Optical intelligence was also employed in the design of special cabinets, which allows for the kitchenette and sundry equipment to be concealed seamlessly and appears like wall panelling. A frosted glass sliding screen which separates the living area from the dining room further boasts the versatile home and office concept where guests can live, work and entertain within the same space.

The rooms will feature special touches, big and small, from king beds with timber headboards fixed with extendable reading lights, motorised blinds, flat screen TV, computer-equipped workspace, separate washer and dryer and a Corian-top kitchenette inclusive of equipment such as a refrigerator, oven, induction cooker and a wine fridge. The bathrooms will continue the luxury theme marble counter tops, compressed marble flooring, standing shower, luxurious bathtub and a separate powder room for guests.

All rooms will be outfitted with the latest wireless technology that will enable guests to enjoy the luxury of surfing the net from any point in a room. The IP (Internet Protocol) phones that will be housed in the rooms are state-of-the-art and will incorporate the latest in digital telephony technology, combined with the ability to deliver rich content applications to the guests. This will include hotel information, weather forecasts, guest and room services applications. Guests will also be able to enjoy luxuries such as music streaming from MP3 players to the in-room audio system.

Guests at La Residenza will have other luxury amenities to enjoy. Café Brio’s will offer casual all-day dining, while a second restaurant, Pontini, will feature Italian gourmet fare, service and ambience. Additional amenities include a business centre, serviced offices, conference facilities and a health/fitness centre.
