IHG’s Hotel Indigo to Open Second Singapore Location at Changi Airport Terminal 2 by 2028

Changi Airport Group has just awarded the tender for a new hotel in Changi Airport Terminal 2 today. The new Hotel Indigo Changi Airport will be developed by SGX Mainboard-listed OUE Limited.

“The hotel concept proposed by OUE was the most compelling and promises to be the first zero-energy hotel in Singapore, and possibly the first for an airport hotel in the world. With travel demand continuing to soar and passenger traffic growing beyond pre-Covid levels, the new hotel will elevate the hospitality offerings at Changi Airport. It will serve our visitors well with its differentiated facilities and convenient access to T2. We congratulate OUE on being awarded the tender and look forward to a close partnership in the coming years to bring the idea for Hotel Indigo Changi Airport to life.”

Mr Lee Seow Hiang, Chief Executive Officer of Changi Airport Group

The 255-room, 163-metre-long hotel will feature innovative design elements and modern facilities, including a rooftop day club, bar, and infinity pool offering panoramic views of the runway, airport boulevard, and skyline. The seven-storey hotel design will be centred around the concept of a “Floating Forest.” Guests can expect layers of lush rainforest and hanging epiphytes. Sustainability features such as solar photovoltaic panels, hybrid cooling systems, naturally ventilated corridors, and rainwater-harvesting technology aim to reduce environmental impact while enhancing overall guest comfort and well-being.

“We are very honoured to be awarded this opportunity to develop a new hotel at Changi Airport, a globally renowned aviation hub that is synonymous with innovation and excellence.  We look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership with CAG, and to introducing fresh and innovative hospitality concepts to visitors of Changi Airport.”

Mr Brian Riady, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of OUE

The IHG-branded property will complement existing hotels on Changi Airport’s landside, including YOTELAIR at Jewel Changi Airport and another IHG-branded Crowne Plaza Changi Airport at Terminal 3. Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is also owned and leased by OUE. IHG first introduced the Hotel Indigo brand in Singapore in 2016 with the opening of Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong.
