PARKROYAL on Pickering named as Hotel of the Year

July 8, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

PARKROYAL on Pickering, Singapore’s first hotel-in-a-garden, has been named as Hotel of the Year by World Architecture News in the prestigious annual WAN Awards.

The judging panel selected WOHA designed PARKROYAL on Pickering as joint-winners of this year’s award, alongside The Raas Hotel in Rajasthan, India.

In their recent press release, World Architecture News announced that there had been a rare global spread of entries for ‘Hotel of the Year’ longlist, and after much deliberation, the panel decided to declare joint-winners for this year’s award.

PARKROYAL on Pickering was awarded the highest possible accolade for its “lush gardens that seem to spill like a waterfall of greenery into the surrounding metropolis” and described by the judging panel asa garden of ‘warmth and vitality’ floating through Singapore’s canyon of concrete.

The 367-room PARKROYAL on Pickering was conceptualised with established developer UOL and designed by internationally acclaimed Singapore architectural firm WOHA. The design concept was inspired by the PARKROYAL brand’s promise to give their guests a ‘Local Connection’ to the environment around them. It features a stunning hotel-in-a-garden concept with energy-saving elements incorporated throughout the building. Its 15,000 square metres of lush sky gardens,

planter terraces, waterfalls and cascading vertical greenery comprise twice its land area. The

hotel’s green features include rainwater harvesting, automatic sensors to regulate energy and water usage, and solar cells that power landscape lighting.

To date, PARKROYAL on Pickering’s sustainable project design and green efforts have already earned it the BCA Green Mark Platinum, Singapore’s highest green rating, as well as the Solar Pioneer Award for its innovative solar energy system. The award also follows on from PARKROYAL on Pickering’s recent finalist status in the Luxury/Upscale Hotel section, in the Hospitality Design Awards 2013. The HD Awards honour the very best in hospitality design, from hotels and resorts to restaurants and bars.


To celebrate the award, PARKROYAL on Pickering has created an exciting new room offer:
