GALLERY: Vagabond, Singapore

SINGAPORE:  Its not a stay you are going to  forget in a hurry. The newly opened hôtel vagabond in Singapore historic quarters, right at the junction of Little India and Kampong Glam, is quite unlike any hotel that you might have stayed it.

For one, its dominant colours are red and gold. – Red velvet sofas, gold trees, red cushions, gold rhino and elephants… you get the drift. It’s only when you realise that the hotel pays tribute to its heritage – it was a brothel once, that the colours begin to make sense. Add to that the fact that the  interior designer and architect Jacques Garcia, he of the maximalist tradition (look up Hotel Costes in Paris and Hotel Danieli in Venice), and you begin the comprehend the look. Add to that the owners Satinder Garcha and his wife Harpreet Bedi have on display a part of the their extensive art collection, and hôtel vagabond gets own unique identity.

Here’s a closer look at what a stay at the hotel entails:
