Insta-worthy locales that’ll make up for your lack of travel plans

It may be a pity that travel plans have halted due to the current pandemic, but there’s no use in moping around. Instead, just take time off for yourself and enjoy a good ol’ staycation, right here in Singapore. Below, find five boutique hotels dotted around our sunny island which have plenty to offer as unique accommodation spots. Pack your bags folks, your Singapoliday is just around the corner.

The Great Madras

Fans of Wes Anderson flicks would easily enjoy a staycation at none other than The Great Madras, where the hotel facade and facilities are reminiscent of a movie set designed by the famed American filmmaker. See everything come to live thanks to an Art Nouveau color palette, distinctive shapes across furnishings and picture-perfect zones. We recommend grabbing a riveting novel and heading down to the pool to just bask in the good vibes.

Hotel Soloha

A bespoke boutique hotel residing along Keong Saik Road, Hotel Soloha is truly a breath of fresh air due to its concept. At this urban chic, jungle-inspired hotspot, just join the stylish side of life as you step into the lobby where a bar-reception is ready to welcome you with martinis. Then, relish the stay in your room which is homely yet luxurious, as bespoke furniture, 4K TVs plus a Hansgrohe Raindance shower system awaits.

Lloyd’s Inn

Standing as a 34-room boutique property with eight room types near Orchard Road, there’s much to like about Lloyd’s Inn Singapore. From its multitude of minimalist chambers like The Reading Room and The Big Sky Room that can cater to your needs, also take a dip in the equally aesthetically pleasing pool or head up to The Roof Terrace for a breather. Plus, with the monochromatic design theme running through the entire hotel, feel like you’re in a therapeutic resort that’s the perfect getaway spot despite it still being in the heart of town.

Naumi Hotel Singapore

A charming oasis located in the artsy Bras Basah precinct, Naumi Hotel Singapore is the definition of contemporary meets minimalist. In the city centre, get to explore this 5-star accommodation spot that is actually a restored shophouse boasting a rooftop lounge, an infinity pool, as well as three fitness studios. Doesn’t hurt that the rooms come equipped with smart TVs, Nespresso machines and soaking tubs either.


To luxuriate in a space that’s swanky yet homely, you’ll have to book a stay at Wanderlust hotel on Dickson Road. Choose from quarters such as the Loft which is a two-storey apartment concept featuring a kitchenette as well as a cosy living room, or the Studio that offers Ashley & Co bath amenities, a workspace, walk-in rain shower and a flat screen smart TV. When it’s time to dine, simply head out to choose from a solid selection of restaurants and cafes nearby.
