New Majestic Hotel (Closed)
Singaporean lawyer-turned-hotelier Loh Lik Peng, is known for his collection of vintage chairs, and anti-stereotypical Hotel 1929, but he has outdid himself with the opening of the New Majestic Hotel - his second hotel.
The New Majestic Hotel has announced it will be closing its doors on 1 June 2017 to make way for new developments.
I was offered the Attic Suite on the top floor, and upon entering, I had no regrets relocating from Wanderlust to New Majestic. The room was spacious and homey, designed in a minimalistic way,which is what I truly enjoy. Two classy bathtubs stood in the open concept living space, next to separate toilet and shower area. The little accent pieces scattered around the room such as a barber's chair, and an old studio light made the minimalistic room slightly more rustic, and brought in a much appreciated old world feel.
The walls were covered in various art sketches, inspired by various nursery rhymes. There were sheep above the loft bed, and various instagram worthy corners in the room.
On top of all of that glamour, everything in the mini-fridge was complimentary and that included soft drinks, oreos, juices and mineral water. Other little touches were the Kiehls body soap, lotion and shampoo in the shower, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine on the study table.
Best part? Power outlets were everywhere. It is an absolute dream to find that every nook and cranny has a power outlet for your beloved phone. No more extension plugs!
Basically, my sister and I spent most of the evening lounging around in the bathtub and watching movies on the Smart TV (which I might add is on a 360 degree rotating platform). Yes, we watched movies from the bathtub instead of the couch.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to go swimming in the hotel pool since it rained, and of course who goes to the gym on a staycation? It wasn't so bad just staying in the room and relaxing which was our intention anyhow.
We also had a complimentary breakfast at the New Majestic Restaurant the next morning. I do wish they would have more variety, and the food was just so-so. Service wise, they were quick with the paperwork, and polite in answering any of our enquiries.
Do take note though, they charge for any additional guests that you bring into your room, so I'm not sure if large parties are an option for this place. If you're looking for a great place to just relax, and escape in a home away from home, then it's the best place for you.
I'm in the mood to sink into their soft downy loft bed right about now. Will probably be back there soon!
The unique thing about this hotel is that each room is designed by designers. The minimalist room which is a suite was designed by wykidd song. There are 5 other suits with all different theme like a hot pink room called the pussy palour designed by Daniel Boey.
The only bad point is their location as it was a 10-15minutes walk and some of my guests had a hard time finding the hotel. I paid $315 per night which is slightly pricey but because of their unique design it was worth the price.
