Hotel Review: Clan Hotel Singapore
Hotel Clan Singapore is owned by Far East Hospitality was scheduled to open sometime in 2020 but due to COVID-19. It is also the group’s first luxury hotel in Singapore – “a modern luxury with a nostalgic story to tell” to be exact.
The 324-room property is located in the buzzing area of Chinatown / Telok Ayer / China Square and you should find plenty to entertain yourself (except shopping malls). It is also located within 1-min walking distance away from Telok Ayer Station (DT18) and a 6-min walk from Chinatown (NE4/DT19) so pretty much very accessible.
PRICE – S$458nett for 2 nights under their Be The First promotion which offers a “first-peek’ sort of experience before the hotel officially opens for bookings from 01 March 2021 onwards. It comes with the below inclusions:

The Clan Hotel lobby is located on level 2 where the front desk is. This is also where every guest who checks in get a Welcome Tea Ceremony: a ritual where Tea Master Alex Choi will hand brew and gently serve you a cup of hot Nanyang Ritual (from local tea brand PRYCE) served with a wet towel and a tau sar piah – all exquisitely laid out in a nice little oriental tray. I was also offered their special cold brew of Ritual (can’t find anything on Pryce’s website about this) – the 24-hr cold brew was heavenly! Additional servings of tea and tau sar piah are available upon request.
I was staying at this Premier Room Kingsize Bed. This was the designated room type for the promotion. Space felt larger than its advertised at 31 sq and was spanking new and spotless! The choice of brass tones and wooden finishing (I have limited vocabulary when it comes to interior design stuff) was clearly working in giving the space touches of luxurious elegance. A plush kind bed, huge swivel TV. You can enjoy your Netflix movies at night!
The mini bar was well stocked with a Nespresso machine with 4 pods and accompanying cups. For drinking water, the hotel is trying to reduce the use of plastic bottles so there is a flux tap in the bathroom for filtered drinking water. To be honest, I seldom see any hotel offering filtered drinking water for hotel guests.
If you love the infinity pool, you will love the Sky Pool and outdoor jacuzzi on the 30th floor. The pool's day view features a stunning city skyline. Although it is not comparable to Marina Bay Sands Infinity pool, I think it is still acceptable.
I have requested a late check-out due to work matters and was given an extended late check-out at 4 pm as well as a limousine transfer back home!
Bagged with more goodies from the Clan Collection, (I probably lost count on the number of extra freebies I got in our stay), stepping into our limousine transfer back home, with the concierge waving a warm goodbye to me.
With the warm memories of the exceptional personalized service, conversations with the Clan Keepers, and the hotel's attention to details and expertly curated experience, I certainly felt an unyielding sense of clan kinship in my stay.
