Need a short getaway without going overseas? Here are three super-stylish hotels that are worth checking out for their well-designed interiors, awesome architecture and luxe furnishings.
For history buffs:
Converted from an 1895 warehouse along the Singapore River, The Warehouse Hotel is the ideal location for those with a penchant for restored historical buildings. Designed by homegrown agency Asylum, this 37-room boutique hotel retains many of the godown’s original features like its ceiling beams and peaked roofs. Local heritage and culture is also an important feature, with the hotel’s artwork, bicycles, books and drinks all locally sourced for an authentic Singapore flavour.
The Warehouse Hotel is located on 320 Havelock Road.
For the monochrome lover:
If you love minimalist black and white interiors, Hotel Mono is straight up your alley. Conceptualised as a hip retreat for design-savvy guests, the hotel occupies a row of six shophouses and makes a statement with its bold use of lines and colour. Inside every room, a seamless metal bar traverses the space like a line drawn in air, functioning as a light fixture, coat hanger and sculpture. Owing to the architecture of conservation shophouses, each of the 46 rooms in this property has its own unique layout.
Hotel Mono is located on 18 Mosque Street.
For the luxury seeker:
If you’re looking for a classic luxury experience, you won’t go wrong with being at Shangri-La, which has recently emerged from an extensive 8-month renovation. Since the makeoverby Japanese interior firm Bond Design Studio, the interiors of the hotel is now an urban oasis with lush greenery and contemporary furniture – see it here! All 503 guestrooms and suites have also been refreshed, offering guests a modern resort atmosphere. It’s a change from the look we’ve always associated with Shangri-La, but no less luxurious than before.
Shangri-la Hotel is located on 22 Orange Grove Road.
