Singapore's Mandarin Orchard and Marina Mandarin now offer complimentary local smartphone services

The Mandarin Orchard Singapore and Marina Mandarin Singapore have equipped all guestrooms with handy, a smartphone solution that provides registered hotel guests complimentary access to unlimited 4G data, local and international calls, online city guides and ticket bookings to Singapore’s places of interest. Both hotels are managed by Meritus Hotels & Resorts.

With all of Mandarin Orchard Singapore’s 1,077 rooms and Marina Mandarin Singapore’s 575 rooms now equipped with handy, guests can take their personalised smartphone out of the hotel and stay connected as they travel around and explore Singapore. They are also able to dial directly to hotels’ contact lists including guestrooms, concierge, and the restaurants.

The free high-speed data connectivity and unlimited local and international phone calls cover 15 countries and territories - Australia, mainland China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, the UK, the US and Vietnam.

Guests can also look forward to useful information on the latest promotional offerings in and around the city through dining and shopping guides preloaded onto the smartphones. In addition, they can navigate around Singapore with ease through built-in travel apps that include mass rapid transit (subway) maps and a digital location-based city guide.

To protect guests’ privacy, each device will be restored to its factory settings upon checkout to completely clear all personal data and browsing history that may have been stored during their stay.
