At long last, there will be a Banyan Tree resort in Singapore and it will offer one-of-a-kind experience in Mandai's new integrated nature and wildlife park.

Opening in 2023, the eco-friendly 400-room resort will offer guests an interesting range of tropical stays - from lowrise accommodation for families to exclusive elevated cabins and stylish treehouses sprawled over 4.6 ha of land in the eastern section of the park.

Expect comfort and sophisticated hotel services while you enjoy the rich biodiversity and forest-fresh air in your midst. The resort might come under a new brand of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, which now offers four brands catering to different market segments and lifestyle needs.

Banyan Tree has had immense experience in developing and managing resorts that are tactfully located and sustainably operated. It has also run many environmental conservation and community programmes, noted Mr Barclay.

So in this regard, Banyan Tree and MPH are "deeply aligned", he said.
