Who ever said you needed to travel to a faraway land for a holiday or a change of environment? With the plethora of boutique hotels available across Singapore, you really will feel as though you’ve been transported to a whole new world – and it’s all a mere hour flight away.
1. Hotel 1929
Conveniently located in Chinatown and in the heart of Keong Saik Road, Hotel 1929 exudes a mix of old world architecture and a nouveau chic interior. The rooms are simple yet so vibrant with its mix of contemporary and retro furniture – each room is a surprise on its own! Feel like venturing out? Well, you’re in the best spot ever to discover new quaint cafes.

2. Villa Samadhi
First off, there are only 20 rooms available, so you can be sure that it’s as exclusive as it’s going to get! For the ultimate luxury and privacy, go for the Luxe Sarang, which boasts a walk-in rainfall shower, a bathtub huge enough for two and a private outdoor plunge pool! Trust us, you won’t want to leave the vicinity of your room – and you’re in luck as they’ve got a restaurant called Tamarind Hill to fill your appetite.

3. Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong
Believe it or not, this hotel that features Peranakan-infused designs, was actually previously a police station built in 1928! Their most popular room, the Premier View Room with Bathtub (only 12 of such room exists!) is so popular that you’d need to book ahead of time. But we understand why: the room has a deep-soaking tub and a unique black and white mural design which shows locals enjoying their breakfast at a coffee shop. Oh, and did we mention that the tub faces the view of the Katong area?

4. Lloyd’s Inn
Minimalism at it’s best, Lloyd’s Inn is an Instagrammer’s wildest dreams come true. It also looks like the place to go if you’re in a writer’s block or you just need a day or two of tranquil bliss. Besides the huge windows that let in natural sunlight, we’re also a fan of the outdoor tub! There really isn’t anything better than being able to soak outdoors, in the sun (or under the stars), without being intruded. If you need a change of scene, head on to either the dipping pool or swimming pool to chat with other patrons or to just relax and read.
