If you’re planning a cheeky staycation in the small city state, or you’re visiting and are looking for something a bit different, we’ve rounded up our picks of the best luxury boutique hotels in Singapore. From the original Scarlet Hotel to the lesser known, but equally gorgeous options, we’ve searched high and low for the best. Here are my picks of the best luxury boutique hotels in Singapore.


1. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – The Scarlet Hotel

The Scarlet was the first and pioneering hotel on Club Street. It is an eccentric blend of old and new, a red velvet Chinese den in the midst of Singapore’s expat go-to evening hotspot. It is slap bang in the middle of shophouses that were refurbished and renovated to accommodate the requirements of a luxury hotel. The Scarlet is lux, no doubt about it. From the outdoor jacuzzi with views over the Buddha Tooth Relic Museum in Chinatown, or the neon lit red corridors connecting all the shophouses, you will experience decadence bar none. The rooms come in various shapes and layouts to maintain the essence of the shophouse architecture and the common spaces are decked with chaise longue and chandeliers. Not keen on staying? Then we recommend dropping by for authentic Italian eats at Casa Tartufo, run by a Singaporean-Italian couple.

2. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – The Naumi Hotels

Naumi is both naughty and nice. Nestled at the edge of the CBD, far away from the the chaos but close enough to pop by the office, Naumi is grown up, modern, and chic all at once. The gorgeous infinity pool is the best location to watch the sun go down. It’s actually the first rooftop of its kind in Singapore. You’ll find hangover cures for breakfast and protein shakes for post workouts. The rooms are sleek, functional and smart and make the most of modern technology.

3. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – Wanderlust Hotel

Wanderlust Hotel, another gem from The Unlisted Collection, is by far one of the funkiest in Singapore. Located in the exotic, colourful and vibrant Little India, this hotel fuses various designs, concepts, trends and aesthetics. The lobby resembles more a loft in the Bronx than a hotel and the concept is refreshing and innovative. The Whimsical rooms are some of the most original we’ve ever witnessed, some are even designed to look like spaceships! Chill out in a teahouse-inspired or go for the Mono room for décor you’ll never forget. To say Wanderlust is original would be an understatement.


4. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – Lloyds Inn

Lloyd’s is a refreshing, natural and invigorating take, apart from the more in-you-face attempts. It is small minimalistic hotel that has considered nature, space, light, texture, convenience and comfort. Sit outside in the serene surroundings while eating your breakfast, or sip a cocktail under the stars on the rooftop. If you’re more into minimalist interpretations, like straight lines, white walls and linen, grey touches and natural wood colours, then Lloyds Inn as your best option.

5. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – The New Majestic Hotel (permanently closed)

Part of the Unlisted Collection and Starwoods SPG program, The New Majestic Hotel is another heritage rich address where Singapore’s past can be seen in today’s hip gentrified surroundings. Several hotel rooms were designed and decorated by designers and artists from various disciplines, including “the most extravagant and outrageous room in the hotel (…). Designed to be a fashionista’s playpen, the room is an over-the-top party-den inspired by the photography of celebrity lensman David Lachapelle.”

6. Luxury boutique hotels in Singapore – Wangz Hotel

Located in gentrified Tiong Bahru, Wangz is a futuristic and funky hotel. Return to the basics in this neighborhood where life moves at a different pace and you can still see a lot of the old Singapore before the glitzy Marina Bay Sands opened. We love their rain showers with outdoor views and the rooms with patios, such a rare thing in Singapore.

Although this post is focused on great luxury boutique hotels, these are rather for couples than for those with kids. If you are looking for something more family oriented, here is a list with suggestions for family hotels in Singapore.

Here are some more staycation ideas if you’re looking for a more outspoken stay.
