The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel – known simply as `The E&O’ to generations of travellers – has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era.
The Heritage Wing is the historical heart of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel. Built in 1885, its Moorish minarets and soaring echo-dome lobby provide the backdrop for khaki-clad doormen and pith-helmeted bellhops to welcome guests to its 100 elegant suites. Attended to by the E&O’s legendary butler service, each suite offers the perfect invitation to step back into the refined elegance and colonial grandeur of a golden age. Benefits of a stay in the heritage wing include welcome cocktail & cold towel upon arrival, personalised check-in by a butler, 24-hour butler service, Sea fronting swimming pool with a spectacular view of the Straits, Invigorating yoga session on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a pet-free environment.
With the opening of the new Victory Annexe in March 2013, an important chapter in the E&O Hotel’s history has come full circle. Named after the original Victory Annexe – a magnificent 40-room addition unveiled by Arshak Sarkies in 1923 – the new Victory Annexe features 118 Studio Suites and 14 Corner Suites. Its modern-classic design retains the essence of E&O’s rich heritage yet offers the modern business traveller state-of-the-art conveniences including high-speed wifi broadband connection, a fully-equipped gym, an infinity pool with an extensive view of the Andaman sea. The Victory Annexe experience includes complimentary non-alcoholic beverages from in-suite minibar, personal coffee machine in-suite, exclusive access to Planters Lounge serving complimentary breakfast as well as coffee and tea throughout the day and exclusive deck pool with a spectacular view of the Straits.
