Changi Airport Group (CAG) has awarded real estate company OUE a tender for the lease and development of a new hotel at Changi Airport Terminal 2 (T2) in Singapore. 

The property, which aims to be the first zero-energy hotel in the city-state, will be under IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand and is anticipated to be operational by 2028. 

OUE deputy CEO and executive director Brian Riady said: “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.” 

The 255-room hotel will offer guests an array of modern amenities, including a rooftop day club, bar, and an infinity pool with expansive views.  

Hotel Indigo Changi Airport’s design will integrate natural elements, featuring a seven-storey “Floating Forest” with rainforest and epiphytes.

This development will add to Changi Airport’s current hotel offerings, which include YOTELAIR at Jewel Changi Airport and the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport at Terminal 3.  

Both properties are also under the OUE Group’s portfolio. 

CAG CEO Lee Seow Hiang said: “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.” 

Hotel Indigo Changi Airport will prioritise sustainability, aiming for energy neutrality in operations.  

The hotel plans to incorporate solar panels, hybrid cooling systems, and rainwater harvesting, among others, to minimise environmental impact and enhance guest experience.
