The space was previously leased to a coworking operator.
“I believed it’d be a great idea to come up with a novel and exciting idea like an eSports Hotel inside a historical building. It was just a coincidence that Arena Esports and landlord Royal Holdings agreed with my idea,” says Sulian Tan-Wijaya the executive director of Savills Retail and Lifestyle.
It will become the second Arena Esports Hotel location located in Singapore after the 25,000 square foot flagship property located in Bugis Village that is scheduled to open in the 1st quarter of 2023.

The brand new hotel on Cuppage Terrace will feature 46 rooms, a battlestation for esports competitions , and an open-air virtual real-time lounge for guests of the hotel.
“Savills was extremely helpful when the negotiation of lease agreements together with Royal Holdings and went the extra mile to secure the required permits from the authorities to ensure the best location in Orchard Road,” says Tracy Sheridan Tan, CEO of Arena Esports Hotel.
