Following a successful launch of The Singular Patagonia in December 2011, Singular Hotels has begun work on their second hotel project; this time in Santiago’s cultural district of Lastarria.
The family owned and operated hotel group will invest nearly $20 million in the new 70,000 square foot, 63-room state-of-the-art, luxury city center hotel. Although a brand new build the owners say it will reflect the historic elements and charm of it’s original European-style.
Local architect Federico Prieto and award-winning Chilean designer Enrique Concha will lead the design of the project located in the National Monument Council protected “Zona Tipica.” The Singular Santiago will be a full service hotel including a 3,000 square foot SPA and fitness facility, a fine dining restaurant, 24-hour room service, as well as a more casual bar. In addition, the property will boast a rooftop outdoor pool, a Sky (Rooftop) Lounge and six meeting rooms outfitted with the latest audio-visual technology.
“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,” explains Singular Hotels Managing Director Nicolas Sahli.
The hotel and its restaurant will meld with their surroundings quite synergistically. The Lastarria neighborhood as a whole has led a renaissance for Santiago over the last several years and continues to develop into a melting pot of elite European styles mixed with chic bohemian influence. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs play host to the global traveler while craft stores, bookshops and innovative art museums illustrate the areas creative roots and intellect.
The Singular Santiago is slated to open in the first quarter of 2014 and will begin accepting reservations in the spring of 2013.
