Singapore: Far East Hospitality has opened its Amoy boutique hotel, the first in the country to incorporate a museum tracing the footsteps of early immigrants from China.

Located in Far East Square, a heritage conservation project in the heart of the Central Business District and on the shoreline where early migrants first landed, Amoy is the company's second hotel opening in two months.

Guests will enter the hotel via Fuk Tak Chi, Singapore's first street museum. The property was formerly a temple and the headquarters for the Hakka and Cantonese communities in the 1800s. Each of the 37 guest rooms features a Chinese family name on the door, acknowledging the contribution of Singapore's early migrants who lived around the area.

Arthur Kiong, chief executive officer of Far East Hospitality, said: "Today's savvy travellers have high expectations. As a homegrown brand, we are positioned to offer them more than just comfortable stays because we can deliver the unique Singaporean experience. We want to tell the Singapore story and create the bespoke journey so that our guests can immerse in the discovery of intriguing Singaporean heritage. At Amoy, we also make it a point to welcome all our foreign travellers from the airport, just like how early migrants were picked up by their loved ones upon arriving on Singapore's shores. This is our commitment to ensure that our service is personalised."
