The Samadhi Group certainly knows how to create an urban sanctuary. The latest addition to the hotel portfolio, opened at the turn of 2017, is the buzzed-about Villa Samadhi – sister hotel to its original namesake in Kuala Lumpur. Located within a lush nature reserve just west of Singapore’s harborfront, it offers a tranquil escape from the buzz of the city.
Housed in a lovingly restored colonial residence, this 20-room boutique hideaway oozes bygone Malayan charm. Traditionally crafted furnishings, antique wares and rustic shutters have been mixed with contemporary luxuries for a chic balance of old and new. The less-is-more concept encourages you to simply take time out and absorb the surroundings, perhaps with a walk in the grounds or a cocktail in the bar.
As for dining, you’ll be in excellent hands. Just above the hotel, you’ll find the acclaimed Thai restaurant and lounge, Tamarind Hill, in an equally magnificent 20th century property. Reserve a table outside on the terrace, then wander back to your super-soft king-sized bed for a heavenly night’s sleep.
How to Get There
Thank you so much to the Villa Samadhi and Tamarind Hill team in helping to make our recent stay in Singapore one of our most memorable holiday experiences we have ever had. Already planning our next trip. Fun fact: The Happy Hour Lemongrass gin is outstanding :)
The hotel staffs were very nice , ambience really gave us relaxing and slow pace get away. Room is big and spacious and really like how the staffs thought of tea break and before sleep wine to help us calm our nerve.
The restaurant above the hotel serve a quiet romantic ambience . Overall very good experience .
We enjoyed our stay in this peaceful retreat on the Singaporean coast. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed and the surrounding park means that you feel far away from the busyness of the city. It wasn’t particularly difficult to get into the centre - about a 10 min taxi - and we found it preferable to be someone a bit more quiet and relaxed than right in the middle of things.
We ate in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast - it’s an attractive and romantic building with good-quality food. The free cocktails during happy hour and the nightcap in the room were also much appreciated!
