Brought to you by the folks at Unlisted Collection, the Wanderlust Hotel in Little India Singapore is an experimental boutique hotel promising to give travelers a sweet escape from reality.
Formerly a primary school, the hotel is a mixture of nostalgia and eccentricity. One of the most unique features of the Wanderlust Hotel is its 4 themed levels of 29 rooms, each level designed by award-winning design agencies in Singapore with total creative flexibility.
Hall level – Industrial Glam
The hall level is designed by The Asylum, which is one of Singapore’s most decorated and renowned creative agencies. Not to mention expensive.
A juxtaposition of the more retro characteristics of the environment with contemporary touches. Also, try to spot the signature barber chair in many properties in the unlisted collection.
Level two – Eccentricity
A theme based on a mainly bright Pantone, this level is designed by Phunk studios.
Each piece is rendered in a unique shade, as named after a classic song titled with said color. This pink room, for example, is pink, and called the “Pink triangle – Weezer”.
Pantone rooms are generally quite compact like a capsule room, but there is also a Pantone Deluxe room with its own bathtub.
Level three – Is it just black and white?
This is the black and white level I stayed at, designed by DP Architects. It is also more spacious than Pantone rooms and does not give the impression that I am acidic.
Mono Room – Pop Art. My room comes with 2D furniture designs integrated into the decor, giving a slightly surreal feeling of being in a cartoon. Ok, I will repeat my previous statement.
Most of the equipment here is all built with effective space planning in mind to use the limited construction area.
I am very grateful to have received a Nespresso machine to fuel my caffeine addiction in the bedroom. Staycations are where I fill up on coffee and write on another staycation.

Another type of room on level three is the origami room, which has concept ceilings folded in paper and multicolored settings in the room.
Level Four – Comforting Creature
By far the most unique level of Wanderlust with 9 loft rooms with five different themes. Designed by the multidisciplinary creative firm Furious. Each room contains a monster creature behind its doors, to accompany you to bed. They also had a monster plush, but guests continue to steal them.
That day, I only saw the whimsical tree room and the tree monster. The detail of the interior decoration of this floor is an art form that you will simply want to watch all day. These rooms cost around $ 300 a night, taxes included.
The beds are located on the upper left in another space-saving ingenuity. The total area is similar to Mono Level 3 rooms. These rooms have a bathtub and are extremely popular.
Not many facilities are available here, but there is an outdoor hot tub guarded by elephants. Soak up and meditate on the mysteries of life in the rainbow jacuzzi.

Upon check-in, you will also receive an itinerary to explore the surrounding cultural attractions of Little India. The Thai Zhi Char restaurant right next to the hotel is pretty good too.
As part of the Wanderlust Hotel, you can also enjoy a rustic meal shared at Le Cocotte within the hotel. I also did a separate article for Cocotte’s weekend brunch menu, and you can also check out my Cocotte Food Review dinner experience.
You may want to explore the nearby area for interesting attractions like the Sungei highway robber market where you can find all kinds of “used” loot. If you’re the creative type, you’ll love to admire the Wanderlust Hotel for its brilliant design.
