The new Wanderlust Boutique Hotel opens
Tuesday, 10 Aug 2010
Wanderlust is the newest and quirkiest boutique hotel in town. With four designers at work (DP Architects, Phunk Studio, Asylum and fFurious), Wanderlust has 29 rooms each with a different theme. And when we say different, we mean really different.
Like fFurious’s loft room in which a giant typewriter doubles as a sofa (yes, that’s correct). And Phunk Studio’s mono-coloured rooms which have neon signs of corresponding song title, such as Yellow Submarine (as pictured).
Asylum took charge of designing the French restaurant Cocotte on the first floor – a perfect place for lunch.
All in all, this little beau took 10 months to create and cost about $4m.
With rooms from $180 and positioned in the colourful neighbour of Little India, we think this new boutique hotel is a perfect place to put your friends up when they come to stay.
What we love the most? Its a hard one – but we certainly approve of the designers retaining the beautiful 1920s Singaporean art-nouveau-inspired tiles used on a scale that is unique to Singapore.
