Wanderlust Hotel In Little India Has Undergone A Massive Makeover - TODAYOnline

You may remember Wanderlust Hotel as that eclectic boutique hotel nestled in Little India. It first opened in 2010 to huge fanfare, not least for its quirky rooms and the much-acclaimed Cocotte restaurant. But things aren't what they used to be anymore — in a good way.

What’s changed?
Fast forward 11 years later, Wanderlust has undergone a major makeover. The hotel’s name remains the same, and its façade has been somewhat retained, save for the signboard, which is now considerably more understated. If anything, it’s a hint at what Wanderlust 2.0 is on the inside.

Gone are the loud, clashing interiors from before. Instead, Wanderlust has been given a chic modern update. It looks sleeker, but still just as Insta-worthy. The transformation took nine months, under its new owners 8M Collective (the same folks responsible for other properties such as KēSa House and Ann Siang House). Wanderlust’s new look and vibe is perfect for hygge moments during a staycay, which is exactly what we need more of in 2020.

Wait a minute. Are staycays a good idea with the current Covid-19 situation?
Life must go on, and that includes one of Singaporeans’ fave pastimes: staycations. In fact, staycays are probably a good idea since you don't have to worry about travel disruptions, coughing plane passengers, or where to seek medical help if you fall sick.

Germaphobes will be happy to know that the folks at Wanderlust have taken a few measures in light of novel coronavirus situation. These include using hospital-grade disinfectant to clean rooms and common spaces, using ozonizers in rooms while housekeeping is cleaning the rooms, and housekeeping teams also use disposable gloves during cleaning. Masks are provided for hotel staff and guests (upon request), while hand sanitisers are provided in common spaces, and air purifiers are placed in the lobby. There’s also temperature-taking in place for hotel staff and guests.
