The Robertson Quay area might get a new lease of life, thanks to the folks at The Lo & Behold Group and their first boutique hotel opening. The group has transformed a warehouse that dates all the way back to 1895, and was situated along a trade route that connected Singapore to the Straits of Malaya in the 19th century.
The Warehouse Hotel exudes ALL the chic and relaxing vibes you’d want on a staycation, and the location gives you a chance to take advantage of the surrounding food centres and many Japanese and Italian restaurants.
While it’d be tempting to eat out, maybe try to actually stay during your staycation and dine in-house at restaurant Po, which features amazing modern-Singaporean cuisine. You know you’re in for a treat when the menu has been put together by Chef Willin Low, the culinary genius responsible for pushing the boundaries of mod-Sin cuisine in Singapore.
The space has been transformed by homegrown award-winning design agency, Asylum, from a heritage site into a modern boutique hotel that still pays homage to the history of the venue.
With only 37 rooms available, truly appreciate your stay by noticing the little details of the warehouse’s original design which were kept, such as the high ceilings and industrial feel. If you fancy living it up, make a booking for Room 208, the only suite amongst the variety of rooms.
The hotel even has a hidden secret: Check out its mini-bars of vice, where you’ll find the essential things (salted egg potato chips and Sichuan pepper gin) and the slightly friskier items (vibrators anyone?).
