Stepping into a MUJI store in Singapore is like being sucked into a black hole. Once you’re surrounded by the iconic wood-lined walls and shelf after shelf of minimalist items, it’s almost impossible to leave.  

If you’ve ever wished you could dabao an entire MUJI store and make it your new home, hold your breath because your wishes have been heard - the world’s first-ever MUJI Hotel opened its glorious doors in Shenzhen, China this January, just 4 hours away from Singapore. It’s just our luck that there’s also now a High Speed Rail linking Hong Kong to Shenzhen in just 15 minutes, so you can easily hop over in a day trip from HK! 

Here’s a virtual tour of the hotel that’s completely worth its hype. 

 

Rooms at MUJI Hotel

There are five types of rooms available in different tiers, starting from just RMB 950 (~SGD$180) a night. Each one is almost entirely furnished with MUJI products and here’s the best part - you can even take some of them home! That means no more sneaking extra toiletries and pens into your luggage and hoping the housekeepers won’t notice.

A reservation at the MUJI hotel comes with a free Western, Chinese, or Japanese breakfast set meal. If that doesn’t satisfy your palate, you can still fill your plate with pastries, soup, or fruits from a side buffet table.

Meeting rooms at MUJI Hotel

Meetings are rarely something to look forward to, but MUJI Hotel’s glamourous ones make them more bearable. When the space isn’t separated into 3 spaces by large sliding doors, it functions as a massive auditorium that can host up to 200 people. With floor-length windows and ample space all around, your productivity levels will soar as you sip on the complimentary coffee and tea.

If you’re already impressed by the massive MUJI flagship store at Plaza Singapura, the one right beside the MUJI Hotel will take things up a notch.

The two-storey store is one of the largest in China. Exploring the store was akin to walking through a museum, and it’s easy to lose yourself among the endless shelves of everyday products. They even host occasional workshops and events as a way to engage with their customers.
