This is the Wanderlust Hotel, located along Dickson Road, near Little India station. This lovely boutique hotel has acclaimed numerous awards and reviews for its beauty and function, and I was fortunate enough to understand why.

The building was originally an old school built in 1920s. Usually, an existing building restricts architects and engineers to maximize the space but the creative people behind this hotel used this to their advantage.

They collaborated (oh, I love that word) with award winning Singapore design agencies to make four thematic levels of 29 rooms. Each group was given full creative freedom and each room was different from one another. 

Lobby Level – Industrial Glam by Asylum
A juxtaposition of the surrounding’s setting and contemporary design.

Level 2 – Eccentricity by :phunk Studio
Colours everything from the walls to the neon lights and the rainbow corridor leads to a outdoor deck with a customised mosaic-tiled jacuzzi.

Level 3 – Is it just Black and White by DP Architects
Walk across the black corridor and enter into the contrasting white rooms to discover Origami and Pop-Art works.

Level 4 – Creature Comforts by fFurious
Get cosy with friendly monsters in each room that presents a different vibe and be assured of a fantasy-filled experience.

Everything is complimentary, from wi-fi (admit it, free wi-fi access is a major +++ points) to the non-alcoholic drinks in the minibar. As for your coffee, each room has a Nespresso that can fulfill all of your caffeine needs. Oh, and they also have an iPod dock for your music. :)

Since I don’t drink coffee, I don’t really need Nespresso but everything else, definitely a must. At least, I don’t have to go out to buy a can of soda or look for an Internet cafe. They’re really trying to give their guests the comfort they need — definitely a sweet escape

The hotel was full when I got there, which kinda made me sad because I really wanted to see the loft rooms (most especially, the space room!) but maybe next time. :)

I also featured this hotel on Juice.ph (click here).

Thank you to Ms. Mae for showing me around. :)
