If you’re planning a trip to Singapore any time soon, here’s a hotel option for you: the Wanderlust Hotel.
Located in Little India, a cultural section of town where Indian immigrants once settled, the Wanderlust’s shell once housed a school. The concept of the Wanderlust is a bit experimental — 29 rooms on four themes designed by award-winning Singapore design agencies.
The Lobby was created by Asylum and is themed “Industrial Glam: A juxtaposition of the surrounding’s setting and contemporary design.” The second level is “Eccentricity” by :phunk Studio where bright colors and neon are the focus, and a rainbow corridor leads you to an outdoor deck with a mosaic-tiled spa. The third level is the Design Milk — er — Black and White level by DP Architects and features pop art. And finally, Level Four is themed “Creature Comforts” by fFurious: “Get cozy with friendly monsters in each room that presents a different vibe and be assured of a fantasy-filled experience.”
There are three main types of rooms in the hotel: Pantone (and Pantone Deluxe), Mono (and Mono Deluxe), and Whimsical. The Pantone are rooms that are designed in specific colors creating a rainbow of rooms:
The Mono are inspired by paper and feature origami and pop art. The Mono Deluxe rooms includes a glass bathtub!
The Whimsical rooms are loft-style on various themes including “Bling,” “ASCII,” “Space,” “Tree,” and “Typewriter.”
The in-room amenities includes a complimentary mini bar (not including alcoholic beverages), Nespresso machine and toiletries from Keihl’s. There’s also a cute little unpretentious French restaurant on site called Cocotte.
