Boutique hotels have hugely gained popularity in Singapore in the last few years, and there is now a large selection of funky, unique properties to choose from. While the major chain hotels favour the Orchard Road and Marina Bay areas, you'll find the majority of boutique hotels clustered around Chinatown, where they can take full advantage of the heritage architecture, and ethnic surroundings.
These Chinatown-based hip hotels include the recently opened Club Hotel, located on popular nightspot Club Street, famed for its cosy wine bars and restaurants. Don't miss the hotel's trendy black-and-white themed roof bar for evening cocktails. Next door, the Scarlet Hotel is where to check into if you're looking for romance, with its plush gold and red velvet interiors guaranteeing you a seductive stay. For something more quirky, try the nearby New Majestic Hotel featuring 30 idiosyncratically styled rooms divided into four types – mirror rooms, hanging bed rooms, aquarium rooms and loft rooms, all with original artwork from emerging Singapore artists.
The number one on our list, however, has been reserved for Naumi – a boutique hotel that manages to offer all the trappings of five-star luxury, and would be as suited to a business trip as a decadent weekend away. Its personalised service, rooftop infinity pool, and women-only floor all help it shine in a crowded market.
If you're looking for individual and unique accommodation, you're ensured a memorable stay at any of the boutique hotels on our list.
