Wanderlust Hotel Singapore

wanderlust (noun) \ˈwän-dər-ˌləst\ – an irresistibly strong desire or an impulse to travel far away and explore different places.

Where to celebrate my 27th birthday? That was the question. After months of scouring the net for the perfect fare deal and destination, I figured what the heck, love is sweeter the second time around. So Singapore it is. Before I actually post my Singapura pics, I just have to write about my absolute bestest favorite hotel ever.

Yup, this boutique hotel certainly lives up to its name. A design treasure located in an old 1920’s school building in Little India. Experimental, contemporary, eclectic, modern, avant garde. To experience it is to believe it. It’s everything I could ever want in  a hotel – art gallery, design museum, first-class hotel all in one.

When you enter this whimsical building, the lobby decor just blows you away. A crazy, industrial mix of mismatched furniture that you’d never expect to see in a hotel.

Customer service is just awesome. Upon check in, the staff gives you your Wanderlust Itinerary/Passport. It’s a map/hotel guide/notebook/workbook/travel guide of Little India and other surrounding sights, sounds, tastes and entertainment.

Of course, since it was my birthday, I chose to check in the Creature Comforts Loft on Level 4. The 300 sing dollar room was worth it.They gave me the corner building Space Loft. When i entered the huge, huge 2-floor room, I squealed, laughed and did a little dance. Yes, there is a bathtub in the center of the first floor but that just adds to the wonderfully, strange experience. Separate stalls for the rain shower and toilet. To the right are steps leading to the bedroom area. To top it all off, the toiletries were Kiehl’s, the mini bar was FREE plus I had my very own Nespresso machine. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!!!!

That’s not all, Wanderlust also boasts of one of the top authentic French Restaurants in Singapore. Cocotte serves up unpretentious, rustic French cuisine. The ambiance is laid-back and comfortable with wooden tables, mismatched chairs and a homestyle table setting. Don’t let that fool you because the food is DIVINE.

The experience was just perfect. This may be the first time I stayed here but is certainly not the last. For this hotel alone, I will definitely come  back to Singapore.

Thank you Wanderlust for making my 27th birthday an affair to remember.

  • Hi! I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how much did you pa for this? It seems like such a cute hotel! But I hope the price is “cute” also. Haha :)) Thank you! I love reading your blog!


    • Hi, i really loved this hotel! It was definitely pricey, (super cute gyud haha) more than Php10K including taxes because I got the Suite/Loft room which was sort of two floors. The sleeping area was in the second floor that you had to get by ladder-type steps. It was really huge though but they have two other rooms available.

      I booked through booking.com because it was much cheaper. You could try Agoda too. Not my normal price range at ALL but it was my birthday so oh well.


      • Haha my reaction too but the room minibar is free, you have your own coffee machine, free breakfast buffet, kiehl’s toiletries and I got the space room. So it was really huge.
