Singular Hotels’ Santiago Property to Open Oct. 1

SANTIAGO, CHILE—Following the launch of The Singular Patagonia in December 2011, Singular Hotels is getting ready to launch its second hotel project, this time in Santiago’s cultural district of Lastarria. The family owned and operated hotel group invested nearly $20 million in the 70,000-sq.-ft., 62-room city center hotel, which, although a new build, has remained true to reflecting the historic elements of its original European style. The hotel is slated to open Oct. 1.

Local architect Federico Prieto, owner of Prieto Schaffer Architects, and Chilean designer Enrique Concha have led the design of the project, which is located in the National Monument Council-protected Zona Tipica. The Singular Santiago will be a full- service hotel that includes a 3,000-sq.-ft. spa and fitness facility, a fine-dining restaurant, 24-hour room service, as well as a more casual bar. In addition, the property will feature a rooftop outdoor pool, a Sky (Rooftop) Lounge and four meeting rooms.

“The original concept behind Singular Hotels was to develop projects that are, just that, Singular in nature, yet sharing a commitment to the local heritage, architecture and historical significance,” explained Singular Hotels Managing Director Nicolas Sahli. “Lastarria is the perfect location for our second property as the area not only has a rich past, but has become the artistic and cultural center of Santiago.”

Featured at The Singular will be the new French-style restaurant led by chefs Laurent Pasqualetto and Alvaro Romero, who will utilize classic French techniques to elevate Chilean dishes using locally grown products. The restaurant will also be open to non-hotel guests and have a separate street entrance connecting to an interior garden.
