Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen

One Of The Most Historic Hotels In Singapore’s Chinatown

A piece of history, made all the more beautiful. The Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen was an extremely popular Chinese opera theatre when it was originally built in 1887, and served as a hotspot of the local music and theatre culture for decades. Designed and constructed in the style of a traditional Chinese teahouse, the building could originally accommodate an audience of 800. It has since been restored, offering guests a unique place to stay in a historic city. Take yourself on a trip down memory lane with Santa Grand.

Located in the heart of Chinatown, this brilliantly appointed and fantastically located spot offers you all the luxuries of the finest hotels in Chinatown combined with the benefits of the Santa Grand name. Steeped in Chinese culture and history as brought here by the earliest immigrants to our city.

At the hotel’s doorstep you’ll be offered culinary delights unlike anything else in the city from the district’s bustling, lively and delicious restaurants. Experience the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, and make sure to arrive around the Lunar New Year for an experience unlike anything else.

Take in the local culture and religious customs at the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, or the nearby historic Sri Mariamman Indian Temple. Three minutes from the Chinatown MRT Station, the whole city opens up to you when you stay with us.
