Adjacent to the famous Raffles, this elegant boutique hotel stands out from other luxury hotels in Singapore with a great design and an avant-garde ambience.
The unconventional design of Naumi is evident even before stepping inside—thanks to its original exterior featuring a 10-storey metal construction with grey mesh panels stretched between steel bars. Reminiscent of origami, the façade supports climbing green vines.
The origami and floral themes are repeated inside, in a mirror-and-steel panels, complemented by blue, purple, lavender or peach lights. Lobby and rooms are adorned with fresh orchids.
The hotel is decorated with stylish Italian furniture: Zanotta, Poltrona Frau and ultra-modern Dedon loungers, which are set by the rooftop pool. The bold turquoise, purple (and creamy white) leather pouffes in the lobby supplement the overall cream colour scheme of the interiors.
The theme is continued in the rooms, with cream wallpapers, fluffy carpets… and marble lining each bathroom—also furnished with a freestanding bathtub. The rooms have an iPod docking station and a kitchenette, with a refrigerator for wine and coffee.
Not only modern design
Staying at Naumi means a personal concierge that makes sure all needs of the guests are met. The room service, chauffeur and limousine service are available around the clock.
Breakfast is served on the ground floor, practically in the lobby—a space that transforms into a trendy bar after sunset.
There is no restaurant at Naumi, which makes a lot of sense: the hotel is located right in the heart of Singapore, with restaurants and eateries at every corner. We liked an authentic eatery at the corner of Purvis Street, one block down Beach Road (the principle of “no tourists, a lot of local guests” is always a good guide).
Floor for women
Naumi Hotel is an ideal choice for women traveling alone: one floor is designed just for women. The floor has extra security and some small details “just for her” are included in the rooms—e.g. fashion magazines and cosmetics.
