Wandering around Wanderlust hotel.

Loh Lik Peng's new Wanderlust hotel is in my old neighbourhood - Little India (I lived and worked there for a year in a haunted house).

On the night of the official opening party, they invited a silhouette-cutting artist who amazed us all with his scissor-wielding skills. If you look carefully in the photos below, what fascinated me most was that he started by cutting a mirror image of my silhouette and when he finished off the silhouette, the piece was upside down! To top it all off, each silhouette was completed within what must have been under a minute! RESPECT!!!

The boutique hotel rooms are really fun, especially the floor designed by DP Architects where the rooms remind me so much like the Paper Dolly set up in my shop! How apt that I was wearing the iconic Paper Dolly dress on party night!

Nowadays, boutique hotels are gaining attention as more and more people are getting more travel-savvy aiming to get the best experience possible. In the subject of experience which is before dominated only by the luxury hotels, boutique hotels presents a new and fresh accommodation experience. But what distinguishes a boutique hotel from a luxury hotel? Boutique Hotels are all about: “A Different Kind of Experience”.

This kind of hotel’s intimate size produces its characteristic personal feeling and heady ambiance. Some luxury travelers enjoy the compact size and enveloping atmosphere of a boutique hotel. Others prefer feeling like observers in a big, busy luxury hotel.

Boutique hotels give an overall feel when you first walk in. Like Unlisted Collection ‘s Wanderlust Hotel in Singapore. It is a revamped historic hotel shop-house facade blends perfectly with the neighborhood, but inside, the juxtaposition of antique and modern, interior and exterior, provides a theatrical environment where guests can indulge their imaginations.
