BETHESDA, MD—Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International, Inc., has debuted its first hotel in Singapore with the addition of Hôtel Vagabond, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel.
Owned by Harpreet Bedi and Satinder Garcha, the 41-room hotel was designed by French designer Jacques Garcia, blending together traditional Singaporean hospitality with Garcia’s traditional maximalist style.
“Our loyalty members have expressed interest time and time again for more access to great hotels in Asia, specifically, in global markets like Singapore,” said Brian Povinelli, SVP and global brand leader for Tribute Portfolio. “Truly capturing the independent spirit of the Tribute Portfolio brand, Hôtel Vagabond delivers a distinct experience for travelers seeking the unexpected.”
Housed in a Colonial-era, Art Deco building, the Vagabond Salon is a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon, where guests have the opportunity to mingle with resident artists over a crafted cocktail, dine amid a performance or watch an independent film. Three times a week, the Salon is transformed into a music venue featuring a lineup of live musicians and DJs, showcasing local and visiting up-and-coming artists, from jazz quartets to indie rockers.
Offering 41 rooms and suites, each guestroom within the hotel features Italian marble and glass mosaic bathrooms, mahogany furniture and luxurious bedding. There are curated photographs and art pieces in guestrooms, commemorating a diverse array of artistic expression across cultures and time periods.
The hotel also provides an Executive Club Lounge for intimate meetings, offering extensive benefits such as light bites and premium high-speed WiFi. Additionally, local signature dishes are served at the hotel’s new restaurant Hot Buns & Thunder Balls.
The hotel also features a signature rotational artist-in-residence program, which includes on-site performances, intimate events and interactive experiences.
