Wanderlust

First off, I have to admit that I am currently watching Home Alone. Kickass holiday movie and a childhood 90s favorite. I highly suggest.

"Guys, I'm eating junk and watching rubbish. You better come out and stop me..."

So I recently learned about an experimental hotel in Little India, Singapore called Wanderlust. (BTW, the more I hear about the fashion and culture in Singapore, the more I want to visit. I'm penciling it on my list for after Japan, Italy and Greece.)

This description of the Wanderlust Hotel is from Trendland: " [Wanderlust is] set to draw madcap voyagers and curious travelers to its doorstep. The building was originally an old school built in the 1920s. With their four thematic levels of 29 rooms designed by award winning Singapore design agencies, each group was given full creative freedom. "

There seems to be quite a unique aura about the hotel. Check out some of the pics:



The Lobby level – Industrial Glam by Asylum



Level 4 – Creature Comforts by fFurious
"Get cosy with friendly monsters in each room that presents a different vibe and be assured of a fantasy-filled experience."



Level 2 – Eccentricity by :phunk Studio

"Colors everything from the walls to the neon lights and the rainbow corridor leads to a outdoor deck with a customized mosaic-tiled jacuzzi."



Level 3 – Is it just Black and White by DP Architects
"Walk across the black corridor and enter into the contrasting white rooms to discover Origami and Pop-Art works." This room is pretty neato. It sort of reminds me of The Boy with the Purple Crayon.

Level 4

I was curious to see what a night in the Wanderlust Hotel costs. I faked a reservation using Casey Fiance's and my tentative honeymoon dates. It seems that, depending on the Level you stay in, a night can run you anywhere from about $200 to about $400. I guess it ain't too shabby seeing how you get a giant typewriter or a rocket ship in your room.

  1. This hotel is craaaazy! (In a good way) I can't believe something like this doesn't already exist in The States...I particularly like the Weezer reference in the Neon room. Thanks for sharing!
