Wanderlust Hotel Singapore

“This former school, located in 'Little India' is aimed at travellers with serious Wanderlust. An attraction itself, each bespoke floor is the fruit of a different design firm's labour. From changeable LED's to giant sized type writer come sofas. Cocotte, serving innovative French cuisine is a hit. ”

“"Playgrounds for grown-ups" is how Loh Lik Peng describes his hotels and that they are. Full of fun and fancy and in many cases toys. As with his other ventures this property is aimed at visitors with a sense of style and adventure - and Wanderlust. Located in 'Little India' it provides an alternative Singaporean experience. The sounds and smells are different, yet Singapore's CBD is still just round the corner. A converted school, the building stands out and the colourful mosaics and neon lighting means you cannot miss it - no getting lost here. Each floor has been designed by a different company. The lobby with its industrial chicness was designed by Asylum, the vivid Pantone rooms by Phunk Studio, the black-and-white minimalism rooms by DP Architects and the ingeniously individual duplex apartments by the genii at fFurious. These masterpieces include such wonderful oddities as a giant, typewriter shaped sofa, an in room spaceship and felt leaves and fake grass. The 'Whimsical' rooms feature private jacuzzis and all have wonderfully modern and spacious bathrooms. When booking you specify by category, not by room and they differ hugely. All are fabulous but the 'Mono' rooms, which make you feel as though you are walking the pages of an artists sketch book, are the most muted. Wanderlust's novel design is not the only thing pulling in the crowds, Cocotte's modern French menu has quite the local following and is forever filling tables and tummies. Continuing with the industrial theme it combines unusual design features (those famous retro chairs) with authentic French vignettes such as cheque napkins, Le Creuset crockery and an excellent wine menu. Try the tender pork collar with a Dijon sauce or the steak tartare and get stuck in to the cheese trolley! Breakfast, which is included in the rate, is a plethora of delicious sticky French pastries, good coffee and continental treats. Unfortunately there is no pool or spa however some of the rooms do feature private jacuzzis. The hotel's locality and design make Wanderlust an ideal stay for the traveller looking for something unique in a trip to Singapore. ”
