The Sea View Hotel

Established in 1906, Sea View Hotel was one of the first hotels located outside of the busy town centre. Situated in the Tanjong Katong area, the hotel was especially popular with clients who had recently recovered from illness and were seeking the tranquillity of an idyllic seaside resort surrounded by coconut trees to rest and recuperate. Originally owned by Reuben Manasseh Meyer, the hotel was leased to various operators until 1962, when it was demolished and a new property bearing the same name was built in its place. The new hotel operated from 1969 to 2003 before it was pulled down to make way for a condominium development. The 1930s were considered the heyday of the establishment, when it was considered one of the top three hotels in Singapore along with the Adelphi Hotel and Raffles Hotel.
