Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd Set to Further Grow Capri by Fraser Brand [Press Release]

Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd Set to Further Grow
Capri by Fraser Brand
Successful Singapore Launch Spurs Strong Growth Plan

Frasers Hospitality

Singapore, 25 January 2013¬†‚Äď Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd (Frasers), a premier leader in¬†serviced residences, marked the Grand Opening of its first hotel residence Capri by Fraser, Changi¬†City/Singapore yesterday with the unveiling of plans to take the Capri by Fraser brand into the¬†global marketplace, following its successful brand launch in May 2012.¬†This includes the opening of two more Capri by Fraser properties this year, the 126-apartment¬†Capri by Fraser, Ho Chi Minh City in March 2013 and the 240-apartment Capri by Fraser, Kuala¬†Lumpur in November 2013. The Group is also in the process of finalising plans for more Capri by¬†Fraser properties in Asia Pacific and Europe.

Created by Frasers to meet the evolving needs of e-generation business travellers, the new urban-inspired hotel residence brand concept Capri by Fraser, is attracting strong market interest with its first property in Singapore enjoying a steady average occupancy of more than 80 per cent since it soft opened in September 2012.

Bolstered by its strategic location in one of Singapore’s robust business districts, within close proximity to the Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre, Capri by Fraser, Changi City/Singapore has been attracting strong corporate and MICE clientele from surrounding companies ranging from financial, logistics, information technology, telecommunication, FMCG to airline industries. Stays have averaged between three to five nights, with long stay bookings of over several weeks. Capri by Fraser Changi City/Singapore also scored an early coup of becoming the official hotel of the inaugural Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) tournament in Singapore, within only two months of its soft opening.

Speaking at the Grand Opening of Capri by Fraser, Changi City/Singapore, Mr Choe Peng Sum,¬†Chief Executive Officer of Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd, said: ‚ÄúThe positive international response¬†that Capri by Fraser has generated within a relatively short span of time is a strong indication that¬†there is a demand for a hotel residence brand that is well positioned to meet the 24×7 work-life¬†balance needs of the rapidly growing e-generation market sector. We are very excited with this¬†response and it is very much our plan to explore the growth potential of this brand¬†internationally throughout Asia and beyond.‚ÄĚ

¬†The Capri by Fraser hotel residence concept cuts through the conformity of typical hotels by¬†offering residents an extensive range of facilities and customisable services together with the¬†comfort and convenience of a full serviced residence. E-efficiencies such as iPad-activated checkins,¬†e-Concierge and e-Print facilities are available to complement the always-on lifestyles of¬†business travellers. Seamless complimentary high-speed Wi Fi Internet connectivity is provided¬†to help residents stay constantly connected throughout the property ‚Äď in the rooms and all¬†public spaces.

In line with its high-tech vibe, meeting and conference facilities are equipped with the latest audio-visual capabilities including interactive touch-screen panels and integrated whiteboard-projector features. A choice of food and beverage and leisure options, complemented by fully equipped kitchenettes and Spin & Play integrated launderettes, provide residents with the flexibility to choose how they want to work, stay and play.

Capri by Fraser, Changi City/Singapore is part of the Changi City integrated development consisting of the retail mall, Changi City Point and business tower, ONE@Changi City jointly developed by Frasers Centrepoint and Ascendas. Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd’s current portfolio, including those in the pipeline, stands at 76 properties in 41 key gateway cities and more than 12,300 apartments worldwide.

The PLUGGED-IN WORLD

The rise of the digital age has seen the rise of the internet generation.

Advances in technology have revolutionized the way we live. Years ago, only a select few could afford mobile phones or a computer. Today as technology becomes increasingly accessible and affordable, almost everyone has either a smartphone, computer, or tablet.

In today‚Äôs modern world, we use the internet for everything ‚Äď from work and socializing with others, to academic, digital entertainment, and e-commerce. With the heavy reliance on the internet, It‚Äôs pretty unfathomable to imagine life without the web. It does make one wonder how people ever managed to do anything at all before the internet came along.

And whilst there are people who have grown up without the internet like your grandparents and ours, there are plenty of others who have – Generation Z aka the ‚Äúdigital natives‚ÄĚ.

We are constantly plugged in to our technological devices, and we rely on this connectivity in order to function in today‚Äôs society. It has become much easier to do stuff like pay bills, look up information, conduct business, catch up with friends and family around the world through social networking and more. The internet allows us to access this technology, and as such, the reluctance to not want to be disconnected/offline for ‚Äėlong‚Äô periods of time is understandable.

We understand that in order for you to stay updated, you have to stay connected. And when you’re away from home, you seek a comfy, functional space that seamlessly meets your individual business and leisure needs. The smartest facilities designed around your lifestyle.

Enter Capri by Fraser, the new concept of hospitality.

For your entertainment, our spacious suites come fitted with impressive home entertainment systems that include LED TVs, DVD players and iPod docking stations to add to the pleasure of ‚Äústaying in‚ÄĚ. The laundrettes on every floor are also equipped with devices like Xbox Kinect and Wii, so that you can have fun even when doing the laundry.

Urban inspired high-tech and intuitive, Capri by Fraser empowers residents with a menu of intelligent services to choose the way they want to rest, relax and recharge. Its ‚Äúalways on‚ÄĚ e-efficiency experience includes iPad activated check-ins, interactive e-concierge, AirPrint and Wi-Fi e-Print facilities for business, meeting rooms with interactive walls, and a Data Box to charge all digital devices. Should residents so wish, a selection of unique leisure experiences, ranging from Harley motorbike rides and sports car drives to salsa dancing and personal pilates sessions, are also available as part of Capri by Fraser‚Äôs customisable online menu.

Last but not least, there is free high-speed Wi-Fi all throughout the hotel so you can stay connected whenever and wherever.

Local Foodie Delights: Singapore Curry Laksa!

Singaporean cuisine is indicative of the ethnic diversity of the culture of Singapore. With its rich multicultural heritage, the city serves up a true melting pot of flavours and foods. We take a look today at Laksa, or Curry Laksa. This particular dish is one of the staple dishes in the Singaporean diet and is a crowd favorite. This original Peranakan creation is an amazing blend of regional cultural influences with quite a bit of history. Although there are many variations of this spicy number, with each region having its own interpretation, the Singapore Curry Laksa remains the preferred option for many.

Curry Laksa comprises of thick rice noodles, prawns, fishcakes, hard boiled eggs, chopped beansprouts, and cockles served in a spicy orangey coconut cream based soup. The dish is commonly served with a generous serving of sambal chilli (chili-based sauce made from a variety of chili peppers) and garnished with a sprinkling of chopped Vietnamese coriander leaves.

It is said that the best Curry Laksa originated in the Katong region of Singapore during the 1950s and 60s. Today, every other Laksa vendor claims that they sell the real ‚ÄúKatong Laksa‚ÄĚ but no one really knows for sure ‚Äď and while we don‚Äôt claim to know which version the real Katong Laksa is, we‚Äôve compiled a list of some of the popular Laksa stalls in the eastern region of Singapore!

  • Katong Laksa (from the Market-Hawker Center)
    1 Telok Kurau Road
  • 328 Katong Laksa
    53 East Coast Road
  • 48 Roxy Laksa
    East Coast Lagoon Food Village, East Coast Park
  • Marine Parade Laksa (its sign reads ‚ÄúKatong Laksa‚ÄĚ, however!)
    Blk 128 Bedok North St 2, #01-02

Thinking of putting those culinary skills to the test? With Capri by Fraser’s fully equipped kitchenette and a huge supermarket (NTUC FairPrice) next door, you can try your hand at cooking this local culinary delight. Here’s a few awesome recipes that you can follow:

He has performed and recorded with various musicians and singers, including extraordinaires like Michael Stanton, Christy Smith, Mohammed Noor, Richard Jackson, Denise Menningfield, Casey Subramaniam, JJ Lin, Jeremy Tordjman and Alemay Fernandez.
