Far East Village Hotel Yokohama is open from 1st June 2021
THE VOICE OF CHANDIGARH | TRAVEL TRADE REPORTER:
Far East Village Hotel Yokohama officially opens its doors. The hotel is managed by Far East Hospitality (Headquarters: Singapore, Chief Executive Officer: Arthur Kiong), one of the leading operators of hotels and serviced residences in Singapore. This is Far East Hospitality’s second property in Japan.
Located within a five-minute walk from Sakuragicho Station on JR Line and Yokohama Municipal Subway or Bashamichi Station on Minatomirai Line, Far East Village Hotel Yokohama offers easy access to both tourist attractions and business destinations.
Far East Village Hotel Yokohama encourages its guests to “Live Like a Local.” Each Village Hotel provides guests with a Village Passport which details unique experiences that guests can enjoy within the vicinity of the hotel. This includes information on nearby restaurants, cafés, and attractions that locals often visit.
Commenting on the reason for expansion into Yokohama, Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive Officer of Far East Hospitality Management said, “At Far East Hospitality, we are constantly looking at ways to expand our footprint in the region. As intra-Asia travel is likely to increase in the future, countries such as Japan will be even more in demand. We are excited that we have the opportunity to open our second hotel in Japan within a year and we now have presence in 2 of the most popular cities in Japan. Both of our hotels are synergistic in that they cater to domestic travellers looking to experience a flavour of Singapore even when travelling for a functional reason between Tokyo and Yokohama. This hospitality concept is relevant especially through this season where international travel is still largely on hold.
Hence, domestic tourism will be the main staple for some time to come and FEH wants to be in the markets such as Japan where the domestic tourism growth is robust. “
A marriage of Singaporean and Japanese cultures
Singapore and Yokohama are port towns. Hence, the hotel is decked with ornaments such as anchors and nautical lighting fixtures to remind guests of ports and ships. Singapore’s tea-ware and toys, along with a warm wooden lobby and the restaurant, create a welcoming atmosphere. The hotel also plays various music genres based on the days’ time, creating a comfortable and homely environment. Guests will also be able to enjoy
Yokohama’s famous confectionery and Singaporean snacks at the lobby, lounge, and breakfast buffet at the restaurant (after September).
Free drinks and snacks at the lounge
At the lobby lounge on the 1st floor, guests can enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks all day and night. Wi-fi is available at all areas in the hotel, allowing guests to spend a relaxing time at the lobby and other facilities.
Each floor from the 11th to 14th has a Village Lounge exclusive for guests in higher room categories (Superior Plus, Superior Plus MM21 View, Deluxe Plus). The lounge provides free alcohol for adult guests over 20 years old as well as soft drinks and snacks.
Far East Village Hotel Yokohama is offering complimentary breakfast for three months until the end of August. As a preventive measure against Covid-19, the hotel is suspending the buffet and providing breakfast boxes instead. After September, the hotel will offer a variety of food options in a buffet style including Japanese, western, Asian as well as Singaporean
dishes such as Laksa and Kaya Jam.
