Hot! SO/ Singapore to be Rebranded to Hotel Telegraph

Hotel Telegraph

Hotel Telegraph, Singapore will be Singapore’s newest luxury hotel replacing SO/ Singapore after Viva Land Group finalised the purchase of the 134-room five-star hotel for S$240 million.

The name change of the rebranded luxury hotel is a tribute to the building’s rich history, in which it was first established as the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company building. It then became the Cable and Wireless Building and in 1995, the Telecommunications Authority of Singapore. It was also the Ogilvy Centre in 2001 and was most recently a hotel.

Inverlochy Castle Management International will operate the hotel. The Scotland-based group operates a number of castles and resorts in Scotland and the Caribbean. It also offers hotel operation management services and runs some of the best hotels in the world.

Hotel Telegraph will offer business travellers a centrally-located home away from home in which both C-Suite visitors and junior executives can enjoy a comfortable place to rest and host business meetings.

“The building played an important role in Singapore’s coming of age as an international business hub. Renaming it the Hotel Telegraph is a direct tribute to its rich history and our ambitions for history to repeat itself” said Viva Land Group Deputy Chief Executive Officer Anthony Chua

“While it previously provided the foundation for the communications of a thriving city 95 years ago, we want Hotel Telegraph to also play a key role in today’s bustling Singapore, as the luxury hotel of choice for both business and weekend travellers.”

Hotel Telegraph, Singapore will officially open on 28 September 2022 and will be part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World community. Book here
