Wanderlust

Wanderlust

***

Singapore’s boutique king Loh Lik Peng collaborated with four local design agencies to create Wanderlust hotel, and boy did they let their imaginations run wild. Since the hotel occupies a heritage-listed former school, little could be altered on the outside, but stepping inside is like tumbling into a vivid dreamscape. Surreal themes from Pantone colours to pop art, origami and childhood fantasies inspired the 29 rooms, and no two are the same. Wanderlust is bold and idiosyncratic, but, due to Peng’s finely honed approach to luxury, it’s also authentically bespoke.

Highlights:

  • Original, quirky design, ideal for arty types.

  • Cocotte restaurant and bar for bistro-style Gallic comfort food and good wines.

  • The colourful Little India location, showing another side of this cosmopolitan city.

Also need to know:

Wanderlust owner Loh Lik Peng is also the creative force behind Smith stablemate the New Majestic Hotel in Singapore, as well as more recent project the Waterhouse at South Bund in Shanghai.This was the debut hotel project for most of the designers involved and they were given free rein to create whatever fired their imaginations. It definitely shows.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

The name alone gets the imagination whirring. Nestled in the back streets of Little India, and quite hard to find even with the help of a local cabbie, is Wanderlust, a whimsical hotel with hip design credentials.

Decked out with cool trimmings and eclectic furnishings, Wanderlust is a designer’s happy place. It’s the latest offering from Loh Lik Peng, the lawyer-turned-hotelier behind Singaporean sister property New Majestic Hotel, and cutting-edge haunts in Shanghai and London. For this project, he teamed up with four local agencies to create fantastical rooms with an upbeat, funky vibe.

Dining information

Restaurant:

Cocotte is a casual, bistro-style restaurant with a real communal vibe. This is the kind of place to invite a few friends and relax over a long lunch of unpretentious French comfort food. Many of chef Anthony Yeoh's dishes, including the signature roast pork collar with Dijon mustard, can be ordered to share among up to five people.

Top table:

Cocotte isn’t a place for romantic tête-à-têtes – book the long table by the French windows and invite some friends to join you.

Last orders:

10.30pm at the restaurant; midnight at the bar.

Room service:

You can't order from your room, so you're going to have to dress up and head out.

Hotel bar:

The large, well-stocked bar is reminiscent of a French tabac, albeit a rather glamorous one. Admire the quirky lamps made from Campari bottles as you sip a Kronenburg 1664.
