With 19 Holiday Inn Express hotels due to open across South East Asia alone over the next five years, we’re confident this is just the beginning of a successful growth period for the brand,” said Clarence Tan, Chief Operating Officer, South East Asia & Resorts, IHG.

The new hotel is developed in partnership with RB Capital Hotels, the hotel arm of RB Capital Group – a property investment and development group in Asia that also launched the Cuppage Terrace development in Orchard Road and the EFG Bank Building in Singapore.
