Guests can expect to enjoy straightforward access to the complimentary amenity
throughout their stay, not only from the guestrooms but from anywhere within
the hotels' premises.

The service allows every guest sufficient bandwidth to exchange data across
virtual private networks and social media channels, as well as download and
upload reasonably-sized files, including rich media formats. For heavy
bandwidth users looking to stream high-definition videos or download movies, a
premium bandwidth package is available at competitive rates.

Guests carrying multiple devices can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access for up
to three devices.

"Free and efficient Wi-Fi connectivity has become an increasingly important
benchmark for hotel end users," said Maria Taylor, Meritus Hotels & Resorts
Regional Vice President, Revenue. "By offering this value-add and adopting it
as a brand standard, we ensure that we are meeting the ever evolving needs of
our guests and remaining at the forefront of a highly competitive industry."

Meritus Hotels & Resorts have been making headways in hospitality through
product and service innovations aimed at enhancing the overall experience of
guests. In 2012, its flagship Mandarin Orchard Singapore became the first
hotel in Singapore to offer a "second screen" mobile device solution for an
advanced in-room technology that connects guests to a host of conveniences and
services at the touch of a button, from anywhere within the hotel.

The Group was also recently named Most Admired Enterprise in the Innovation
category at the ASEAN Business Awards held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in
conjunction with the ASEAN Leaders Summit.
