Luxury Boutique: Hotel Vagabond opens in Singapore


Opening later this month, 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 as well as the only hotel in the country to feature an Artist in Residence program. The 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.

The heart and soul of Hotel Vagabond is the Vagabond Salon – a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon – where guests will 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 flavors.

Drinks are served from the Vagabond Bar, 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 will be the central feature of Vagabond Bar’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.

Hotel Vagabond will be the only hotel of its kind in Singapore to offer a rotational Artist in Residence programme. With an emphasis on writing, photography and performance art of all kinds, artists will be invited to apply for residencies of up to three months. 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.
