Vibe Singapore Orchard will cater to travellers seeking a taste of the contemporary Australian-inspired lifestyle and travelling Aussies wanting a taste of home.
“Australian-inspired dining concepts, a mini bar showcasing bespoke Australian products, and Australian amenities will set the tone,” he said.” Combine this with our high quality, but relaxed and casual style of Australian hospitality.”
TFE Hotels’ joint venture partner and hotel owner, Far East Hospitality, will leverage mutual strengths, networks, and platforms in the partnership as they operate both the Adina and Vibe Hotel properties on Singapore’s famous Orchard Road.
Far East Hospitality’s CEO, Arthur Kiong, said Australia was a natural target market given it was amongst Singapore’s top five inbound markets pre pandemic.
“Traveller expectations have also evolved with many looking for unique and meaningful experiences,” he said. “Adina and Vibe Hotels will provide an Australian twist to what Singapore, as a destination, has to offer.”
Australia’s historic Pentridge Prison site will become one of Australia’s most sought-after and talked about destinations, as Shayher Group continues to transform the site into a lifestyle precinct, complete with a hotel, residential apartments, shopping, dining outlets and an outdoor cinema.

Harbour hues are the colour of choice according to Adina Apartment Hotel Fremantle Perth’s interior designers who have taken inspiration from the nearby historical portside waterfront.
Fremantle is the second biggest wool producer in the world, so it’s fitting that some of the hotel’s tactile interior design also heroes the local wool. Guests at the brand-new 142-room hotel – the first in Fremantle and the third Adina Apartment Hotel in Greater Perth - can expect water views over the Freemantle dock and within a stone’s throw of the bustling CBD.
The hotel, which is comprised of studios, one bedders and a series of interconnecting rooms that form two-bedroom apartments, offers views over the Freemantle Docks.
“With the Fremantle Docks about to undergo a Barangaroo-style refresh, this is a really exciting and strategic location for TFE,” Director of Development, John Sutcliffe said. “Conference guests will be well served as will cruise ship passengers when the nearby International Cruise terminal is completed.”
“A rooftop pool (with a view corridor to the Docks), lobby bar and café, gym and light and airy meeting and events spaces complete the offering.”
Builders are due to break ground later this month and the hotel is slated to open in Q3 of 2024.
