A Unique Staycation at Hotel Vagabond

#1 on TripAvisor- Hotel Vagabond is Singapore’s first experience-driven luxury boutique hotel with a Salon area designed to immerse guests in the theatre of art, food, drink and conversation. You cannot find any other hotel that is similar to Hotel Vagabond in Singapore. And it is the only hotel in the country to feature an Artist in Residence programme. 
The 42-room hotel is also the first and only hotel in Asia to feature interiors by the celebrated French designer Jacques Garcia.  Garcia is best known for his design of Hotel Costes in Paris, Hotel Danieli in Venice, Hotel Mamounia in Marrakech, and most recently the Nomad in New York.
Vagabond Salon

The heart and soul of Hotel Vagabond is the Vagabond Salon – a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon – where guests have the opportunity to mingle with resident artists over a beautifully crafted
cocktail, dine amongst a performance, watch an independent film, or listen to a jazz quartet. 

Guests of Vagabond Salon can enjoy a five-star dining experience courtesy of 5th Quarter, a collaboration between Satinder Garcha and celebrated restaurateur Loh Lik Peng, run by award-winning Executive Chef Andrew Nocente and offering cuisine using traditional methods of curing meats with the aid of modern instruments to maintain the integrity of flavours. 

Drinks are served from Bar Vagabond, conceptualised by renowned drinks collective Proof & Company and offering an eclectic rotating selection of handcrafted cocktails, artisan spirits and wines, and a curated collection of rare and exotic teas and coffees. Craftsmanship is a central feature of Bar Vagabond’s style, with drinks that blend an unexpected attention to detail with a generous measure of theatre.

With 5,000 square feet of luxurious interiors, superb acoustics, and dressed in thick red velvet curtains,  the Vagabond Salon is also designed to work as a fully integrated, adaptable event space. 

What is Artist in Residence Programme 
With an emphasis on writing, photography and performance art of all kinds, artists are invited to apply for residencies of up to three months. Hotel Vagabond is the only hotel in Singapore to offer a rotational Artist in Residence programme.  Artist Cocktail Hour in the Vagabond Salon will start each evening at 6pm; a time for hotel guests and other Vagabond folk to talk and interact with the artists in residence.

Art at the Vagabond
Hotel Vagabond is also a space for art – both for pleasure and function.  Every piece has been personally sourced and commissioned by owner, Satinder Garcha. 

  • The solid brass Rhino reception desk took 8 months to create across 15 villages in Rajasthan. The family who made it have been making armoury for the Rajasthani royal families for generations. 

  • The pillars in the Vagabond Salon are transformed into golden brass banyan trees through delicate metalwork created by centuries old artisanal techniques.

  •  Life-size elephants ‘hoisting’ up the main elevator are iconic of Jacques Garcia’s style and made painstakingly in France by the artist Franck Le Ray.

  • An impressive monkey sculpture forms the centrepiece of Vagabond Bar – the workmanship of French artist and sculptor Franck Le Ray. 

  • Video art installation by Marco Brambilla, a Milan-born, New York City-based video collage and installation artist, known for his elaborate re-contextualisation of popular and found imagery, will entertain guests in the elevator. 

  • Iconic photography by Julia Calfee, known for her images depicting the glamour and excess of New York’s Chelsea Hotel, adorn the walls.  

  • Satinder Garcha’s original photography from his international polo team wins to his world travels will adorn the walls throughout the hotel, including each guest room. 

My Staycation at the Classic Room

If you are looking for unique stay and excellent service hotel. Hotel Vagabond definitely is the hotel you be looking for. The rooms are uniquely designed by Jacques Garcia in vernacular reflecting his award winning Parisian chic style.

I like the mix of color, texture, fabric and dark woods that are perfectly showcased in the well-appointed rooms and suites in his new Singapore hotel.

The Classic rooms feature all our standard in-room amenities to create a romantic chic enclave. Luxurious interiors in vibrant colors make our Classic rooms perfect for an intimate stay.
  • King sized beds
  • Egyptian cotton sheets and Turkish towels
  • Indulgent goose-down pillows and comforters
  • High speed fiber optic WiFi
  • Jacques Garcia curated selection of in-house films
  • Dark solid hardwood floor

I love the hardwood mahogany writing desk.
The black radio on the desk is so retro right? It is the Roberts Radio in signature hand sewn Scottish leather. The hotel is also very thoughtful to even provide a smartphone in each room for guests to use.

Mini fridge.

For a boutique hotel, I considered the minibar in my room was quite well-stocked which included small bottles of various types of liquor as well as an extensive range of snacks.

 Yes, there is a coffee maker with complimentary coffee capsules and TWG teabags.

Bathrobes and fluffy slippers were provided too.
The bathrobe were soft and comfortable.

Luxurious Italian marble and glass mosaic bathrooms

Relax and unwind in the rain shower.

Etro bath amenities are provided.

In the mid of the day, the hotel staff brought up refreshing fruit infused water! So nice to have them especially a long day out.

Hotel Vagabond is conveniently situated for both business and leisure travellers, between Singapore’s two most historic districts, Little India and Kampong Glam, and only five minutes from the heart of the Central Business District, Raffles Place, Marina Bay and Chinatown.

Have a sensational and "Great Gatsby" kind of staycation with Hotel Vagabond today!
