Villa Samadhi: Colonial Hotel With European Old Town Vibes & Private Plunge Pools Near VivoCity

Villa Samadhi Singapore

There are many opportunities for us to bid adios and go off on a holiday thanks to VTLs, but for now, it seems most of us can agree that the risks and costs are still too high. Instead, bluff yourself and your friends that you’re on a stunning European holiday at Villa Samadhi, with rustic vibes that’ll whisk you miles away without having to take 1284120 swab tests.

Most affordable villas in Singapore with private plunge pools

Located within the green sanctuary that is Labrador Nature Reserve, Villa Samadhi is a monochromatic boutique hotel with some serious old-world vibes. You can tell yourself you’re in the French countryside – our topical humidity is probably the only thing that’ll give it away.

Unlike the standard “sleek look” many hotels have, this one resembles a European mansion with chandeliers, custom teak furniture and opulent carpets. It’s no wonder, considering the building is a 1920s ex-colonial garrison.

We’re all for villas – we sure love Bintan’s resorts and would kill for a stay in the ones in Bali. While there’s no way that any hotel in Singapore can beat Indonesia’s prices, those craving a proper getaway may be glad to know that Villa Samadhi’s villas are the cheapest we’ve found.

There are a total of five different types of rooms available, prices below:

  • Crib – from $347.49
  • Luxe Crib – from $454.55
  • Rustic Crib – from  $462.19
  • Sarang – from $604.08
  • Luxe Sarang – from $828.38

This also comes with complimentary welcome drinks, a fruit basket, afternoon tea set, sundowners and breakfast. And hey, they’re not affordable per se, but well worth it if what you’re looking for is an immersive escape.

Among their 20 rooms, there are six Sarang rooms, which come with an indoor private whirlpool that you can take a dip into – a quirky upgrade from the usual hotel bathtubs.

For those who’d prefer an onsen-like experience, the hotel’s two Rustic Crib rooms come with traditional Japanese wooden tubs large enough to fit two. These are located right by giant windows if you’d love to gaze out at the view with a glass of wine in hand.

Luxe Sarang, with direct access to the pool from the bathroom. The screens can be pulled down for privacy, of course.

Honeymooners can opt for all-out luxury by splurging on the Luxe Sarang. The largest villa of the lot comes with a spacious backyard complete with a private outdoor pool you can swim in and sunbathe by.

Feel like a kween – or king – as the 56 sqm room comes with a rain shower and four-poster bed to unwind after your swim.
