“If you must get into trouble, do it at the Vagabond.”

That’s the first message you see when you enter Hotel Vagabond’s website, and it conjures images of long, languid nights of debauchery in a secretive, boudoir-style setting. In real life, the 41-bedroom property in Singapore doesn’t stray very far from this description.

Tucked away in a rather unassuming heritage building along Syed Alwi Road, Hotel Vagabond feels a little bit like an insider’s secret, thanks to its intimate, sultry interiors by award-winning French designer Jacques Garcia. The Parisian-inspired lobby (or Salon), which also houses the hotel’s restaurant and a bar, is drenched in red and decorated with huge, dramatic brass sculptures. There are six gold-leafed Banyan trees that rise up all the way to the ceiling, a colossal elephant at the elevator, a custom-made reception desk in the shape of a rhinoceros, and a golden baboon at the bar.

In the same vein, all rooms and suites feature dark wood flooring, art pieces on the walls, plush furnishings in purple velvet, luxurious Italian-made Egyptian cotton sheets, and a floral-patterned wooden screen that separates bathroom from the bedroom/living area. Each room also comes complete with a Nespresso coffee machine, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a free-for-use smartphone.
Guests are also privy to the beautiful Executive Club Lounge, where you can schedule your business meetings, get some work done, or nibble on light bites if you’re feeling puckish. Wines, spirits and cheeses are available between 430 to 630pm.

Tempting as it may be to stay in – this is the Top Hotel of TripAdvisor’s 2017 Travellers’ Choice Awards after all – it’ll be a shame not to wander around the neighbourhoods around Vagabond. The hotel offers self-guided heritage walking maps of Little India, Kampong Glam, Rochor Canal and Beach Road, where you’ll discover hidden gems and authentic culture along the way. Expect to shop your heart out at a 24-hour mall, savour local cuisine, learn the religious history of Little India, pick up a cool souvenir at one of Kampong Glam’s indie shops, or marvel at the colonial architecture and historical icons along Beach Road. And when you’re done for the day, unwind at Bar Vagabond with their signature cocktails.

Thinking of a quick weekend getaway in Singapore? Hotel Vagabond’s Maxout Weekend ($265 a night) includes late check-out ‘til 2pm, daily gourmet breakfast or a three-course set lunch at the restaurant. For more information, visit Hotel Vagabond’s website.

I bet your Fifty Shades of Grey fantasy staycation here will be perfection.

  14. This hotel with extravagant decor certainly gives off naughty ideas, after reading their welcome message and your description. So apt! Unluckily, or maybe luckily, Singapore is getting more and more expensive for us Malaysians. A stay at Vagabond will have to wait.

    1. Each time I visit Singapore, there's always something new! How I wish Manila is ready for this kind of extravagance.
