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.
