Singapore has no shortage of luxury hotels and world-class amenities that you can take advantage.
But you can enjoy your time here without the extra luxe, but with a Wow factor. These smaller scale boutiques hotels will offer you a different experience. Although small, they are in the class of their own. For stay-cationers, the intimate settings in these hotels make a perfect escape for the weekend! Whether you’re staying with someone special, bonding with your cool buddy or on a family trip, your time spent in Singapore will be a memorable one. The only question is which one?
The Scarlet Hotel
Located on Erskine Street, amongst pre-war shop houses is The Scarlet Hotel. This historic building has been transformed into a contemporary hotel of 80 dramatic and uniquely decorated rooms of flair and class. The interior of the hotel lobby exudes opulence and splendor. If Scarlet was a woman, think bold red lips, draped in soft velvet and adorned with mother of pearls. Each level of rooms is decorated differently from the other. From merigold orange to crimson red, there will be a room that will intrigue you. If you want to enjoy Sicilian tapas and or sip on specially curated drinks while soaking in the views of Chinatown, you can hang out at -Aria Roof Bar, located right at the top floor, accessible from the hotel elevator.
Nestled in the heart of Kampong Glam, one of Singapore’s heritage districts is this ornate boutique hotel, Hotel Vagabond. When you enter the hotel, you are in for a shock. The good kind we may say. The interior is more like a Paris museum than your standard hotel. Your eyes will pop admiring the brass bold artefacts and paintings around the lobby, designed by French architect and interior designer, Jacques Garcia. We are not joking when we say there is an elephant in the room (lobby). Lovers of eccentric art and architecture, rejoice!
Located in the vibrant Orchard Road – shopping mecca in the city is the urban Quincy Hotel. A whimsical and playful designed lobby celebrate the vibes of the entire hotel. Take a dip in the color-changing LED illuminated glass pool at any time of the day. The infinity pool is set at 26 Degrees Celsius, which we think is the right temperature for tropical island like Singapore. Imagine yourself as a carefree, happy mermaid swimming in a man-made oasis, and take in the sights of Orchard Road. Enjoy movies night at the pool on Saturday, making the experience more special!
Hotel Indigo Katong
Inspired by heritage of the Peranakan people, is Hotel Indigo Katong. The hotel is located in the Joo Chiat district, away from the bustling city centre. The hotel is a walk down memory lane for the locals. Murals on the walls that illustrates the hawker culture, still going on until this very day. Carrom board is your coffee table. Decorative pieces such as the red clogs and spittoons make their appearances to be part of the décor. As the name suggests, the spittoon took their spit. Something you definitely cannot do in Singapore these days! In case you are wondering what on earth these decorative pieces are, it might intrigue you to learn more about Singapore’s history!
