Stay: The Warehouse Hotel
Opened in January 2017, The Warehouse Hotel is Singapore's first truly boutique, design-focussed property. Once a warehouse during the spice trade, and more recently, the home of Singapore's most popular nightclub in the 1980s, the two-storey industrial building has been immaculately renovated by Singaporean design firm Asylum to create an airy and industrial, yet welcoming space.
The 37 elegant rooms are designed in a relaxing, muted palette of greys and greens and all included elements of the warehouse's original design – whether double-height ceilings or exposed brick walls. The rooms all have vast shower areas, lots of natural light and several come with beautiful river views. The hotel's lobby bar serves great cocktails made with house-infused spirits and essences while the hotel restaurant Po offers an interesting menu of modernised Singaporean classics in a super-chic setting. Every inch of the hotel's design has been carefully considered. From your coffee cup to the bedside light and even the rooftop pool, its an aesthetic triumph.
