Tribute Portfolio, the growing collection of characterful, independent hotels from Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s extraordinary portfolio of 30 hotel brands, award-winning loyalty program and endless experiences, continues to expand its footprint in Singapore with the opening of The Serangoon House. Owned by The Garcha Group, the 90-room lifestyle hotel is one of the finest examples of Indian colonial design and interior architecture located in Singapore’s most vibrant ethnic district, Little India.

The Serangoon House, Singapore, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel is the perfect base to become acquainted with Little India, a historic area that shows off the best of Singapore’s Indian community. The buzzing ethnic enclave is peppered with spice shops, jewellery stores, saree specialists, flower vendors, trendy cafes and hip watering holes.

Step into the lobby of The Serangoon House with custom made porcelain chandeliers, green and white marble mosaic flooring with scenes from colonial India on exclusive De Gournay wallpaper and velvet banquette seats for patrons to mingle. Each of the 90 rooms of The Serangoon House is adorned with bespoke double-tiered canopy beds lovingly handmade with unwavering attention to detail. The luxurious two-tier canopy beds made by world-class European artisans in every room can accommodate up to six guests when required.

The perfect dining destination nestled in the hustle bustle of Little India, to soak in and socialize over culinary exploration of “the great Indian street food”.  GupShup serves up a delectable breakfast spread including an authentic Indian breakfast for guests.

In spring next year, GupShup will bring to Singapore’s dining scene, an authentic and talkable offering, with a focus on one the most popular, comforting and celebratory genres in all regional Indian dining “Chaat and Street food”. Guests will be able to enjoy the cultural delicacies from Delhi, Bombay, Punjab, central India and Calcutta with key flavours notes ranging from ting-tang to peppy-sweet and textures; crisp-crunch to soft-fluffy. The authentic restaurant also features a kiosk where guests can pick up street food along with classic Indian beverages and exotic drinks that complement the bold flavours of our menu.
