Vibe: Quiet Cool.
Area: Little India, one of Singapore‘s most vibrant neighbourhoods.
The DNA: Retaining only the name of the original property, the new Wanderlust has undergone a complete transformation, merging old-world charm with essential modern-day comforts. It is housed in an elegant 1920’s building -once a school. The Kotuwa restaurant, helmed by Michelin-starred chef Rishi Naleendra of local dining destinations Cloudstreet and Cheek Bistro (formerly Cheek by Jowl), celebrates Sri Lankan flavours, culture, people and hospitality. The peaceful and inviting lobby is a wonderful dichotomy to the vibrancy of the neighbourhood. There is an open-air terrace overlooking charming Dickson Road, and a private courtyard oasis with a dipping pool.
Suite-Me-Up: Rooms range from spacious lofts to comfortably appointed studios. Most have kitchenettes. Essentials can be bought at the in-house Mama Shop that offers a hand-picked assortment of locally sourced brands and staples with ample selection for the health conscious. Extended stay services include complimentary laundry.
