Accor inked a deal to manage a second Sofitel hotel in Singapore with the the Sentosa Resort & Spa, which was purchased by the Royal Brothers Holdings in August of 2013.
Royal Brothers also owns the 134-room Sofitel So Singapore, which is opening in May. Royal Brothers paid more than $158.6 million for the 215-room Sentosa Resort & Spa. The hotel's origins could be traced back to Amanresorts’ Adrian Zecha and company, which later became The Beaufort Singapore.
Sources said it is likely that the Sentosa resort property will be branded as a Sofitel, not a So. An official announcement will be made on April 16.
