Ascott officially launched its third lyf property in Singapore, lyf Farrer Park Singapore to much-abated fanfare. Located in the heart of Singapore’s cultural and heritage enclave, lyf Farrer Park Singapore connects next-generation travellers to one of Singapore’s most culturally-rich neighbourhoods located conveniently near a multitude of heritage and retail attractions. The coliving property also unveiled its unique artworks by local artists adorning the walls of the property with the vibrant history of the Farrer Park district, and also introduced its ‘Side by Side’, a twin bed studio apartment – a first for lyf properties in Singapore!

At the official opening of the property, lyf Farrer Park Singapore offered us a glimpse into its signature #lyfgoeslocal specially-curated programme and experiences, which partners with local businesses in providing guests with authentic, local experiences to enrich their stay. We also had the opportunity to experiment with concocting our very own cocktails in a masterclass held by The Elephant Room and took home our very own sustainable skincare creation by Escential The Body Tonic.
