Former primary school at Pearl’s Hill transformed into S$13m hotel

A former primary school building has been revamped into a hotel.

The 12-storey building at Pearl’s Hill used to be the tallest school in Singapore.

The school closed in 2001 and the Urban Redevelopment Authority called for tenders to lease it out.

Vita Holdings won the bid and spent S$13 million to transform the school into a hotel with 140 rooms.

The initial budget was S$6 million but Vita Holdings said the amount more than doubled because of the need to adapt to the changing hospitality industry.

After the face-lift, the building is now called Hotel Re!

Rooms here will range from S$280 to S$700 and the hotel is slated to open by end April 2008.
