Wanderlust Hotel is a four-storey boutique hotel in the vibrant Little India neighbourhood. There’s nothing more relaxing about staying in an old, spacious building, than when it’s fully renovated and when the creative, interior design is fashioned in your taste. That’s all true of Wanderlust. No two rooms are identical in look and feel, giving guests the reassurance they’ll sleep perfectly in the habitat of their choice, of which there are many including a room with a fantastic canopy of leaves lining the ceiling and multiple rooms that are washed in Pantone colours. Or else there’s always the spaceship…

Annual events in the hotel’s vicinity.

1) Thaipusam Parade; a 2-day Hindu festival that’s known for the extremely painful looking, self-inflicted “piercings” by some devotees. Worth checking out for the colorful, spiritual procession.
