Far East Hospitality (FEH) will continue with its regional expansion plans, which includes two upcoming properties in Japan and Singapore, as well as a partnership with Artotel Group to boost its presence in Indonesia.
Slated for opening in June this year, Far East Village Hotel Yokohama will be FEH’s and the Village brand’s second property in Japan, following the opening of Far East Village Hotel Ariake last July.
The 277-key property will be managed by FEH under a hotel management agreement with Far East Organization. Situated in the heart of downtown Yokohama, the property targets business travellers. It is a five-minute drive to the CBD and a three-minute walk to Sakuragicho and Kannai stations.
On home ground, the hospitality group will also be expanding into the resort and spa category with the opening of Oasia Resort Sentosa in 2H2021.
The 191-key property will consist of Suites, Wellness Premier Rooms, and Deluxe Rooms, and will be the fourth property on Sentosa island managed and operated by FEH. Guests will be able to partake in wellness activities such as spa treatments, fitness routines, and mind-body practices; as well as connect with nature. Wellness journals, self-care checklists, and access to a collection of guided meditation audio will also be made available to guests during their stay.
In addition, FEH has entered into a partnership with Indonesia’s hospitality and lifestyle company Artotel Group to collaborate across operations, branding, and training, as well as support business growth across markets.
As part of the agreement, both FEH and Artotel Group will be represented as an “Affiliate Brand” on the respective parties’ distribution channels and ecosystem. FEH will also work with Artotel Group to enhance its presence in Indonesia and gain meaningful market share. Both parties will also conduct training exchanges to share industry best practices and increase internal knowledge and expertise across markets.
