Wanderlust Hotel: An Unorthodox Hotel Experience
Wanderlust Hotel is an eclectic boutique hotel in the vicinity of one of the most famous (and colourful) neighborhoods in Singapore - Little India! The hotel is surrounded by industrial shops, local food vendors, markets and hawker centres. It's also just moments from Singapore’s incredible MRT system, which makes it the perfect base for further city exploring!
“ALTERNATIVE HOTEL WANDERLUST IN LITTLE INDIA, DRAWS MADCAP, CURIOUS VOYAGERS TO THE OLD ETHNIC ENCLAVE. MADE FOR GUESTS WITH A SENSE OF ADVENTURE, WE INVITE YOU TO WALK THE UNCONVENTIONAL PATH WHERE A RADICAL HOTEL EXPERIENCE AWAITS.”
The most exciting part about this hotel - no two rooms are the same! During inception, the hotel partnered with four award-winning local design agencies - Asylum, Phunk Studio, DP Architects and fFurious. Each agency was granted total creative freedom to transform an entire floor in the hotel.
Fun fact: the hotel was originally an old school built in the 1920s!
On the first level of the hotel - themed 'Industrial Glam' by Asylum - you'll find outdated industrial pieces scattered throughout the entrance, lounge, wine bar and restaurant.
Spotted: old barber chairs, dentist ceiling lights, old fashioned leather sofas and even a traditional (and complementary) Singaporean snack cart.
The second floor - themed ‘Eccentricity’ by Phunk Studio - hosts a variety of rooms featuring different Pantone colours, neon signs and musical inspiration.
The bright and entirely yellow suite known as ‘Yellow Submarine’ (inspired by The Beatles) is a guest favourite - and ours too! Check out that vintage cast iron tub.
There's even a rainbow corridor to explore.. leading to a rainbow jacuzzi!
The third floor - themed ‘Is It Just Black and White?’ by DP Architects - features nine rooms with sharp black and white contrast. Half of the rooms are inspired by the Japanese art of Origami and the other by Pop-Art.
On the top floor - themed ‘Creature Comforts’ by fFurious - there are nine spacious duplex suites. The theme was influenced by the idea that travel experiences become much more memorable when we have met or have made a new friend. fFurious designed each room with its own friendly creature to welcome guests and to bring them comfort in a new place. These unique creatures are born from different themes - a typewriter, tree, space, ASCII table and bling!
The quirky hotel has also integrated a new wine & dine concept - WINEDERLUST by Unlisted Collection. The wine and bistro bar has over 300 labels of wine available and creative dishes for pairing. The menu continues to evolve by the “Young Chef Movement” programme which collaborates with young chefs & inspiring restaurants from around the world.
