Wanderlust Hotel is a 29 room boutique hotel located in the Little India neighborhood in Singapore. Its themed rooms and suites have enabled it to make its way into the list of Design Hotels. You might have already heard about the hotel as its newly designed Space Suite had created quite a buzz. One of the other most unusual themed suite in the hotel is the Typewriter Suite. All the themed suites of the hotel are located on the top floor of the hotel. Each one has been designed around a concept and every one of them seems to appeal more than the others.
Singapore based design firm fFurious was commissioned to conceptualize the themed suites and one has to admit that they have done a wonderful job. As you walk into the Typewriter Suite you are stunned by the huge typewriter keys above your heads. There is a custom bench and a mid-century modern couch that adds to the novelty appeal to the suite and yet makes it very comfortable and luxurious. No doubt the Wanderlust Hotel is the most deserving hotel to be part of the Design Hotel family.
Since the Wanderlust is a small boutique hotel you need to book much in advance particularly if you want the specific themed suite of your choice. The Typewriter Suite features a flat screen TV, bench and couch, soaking tub, double sinks, separate toilet and shower cubes. The bed is placed interestingly above it all. The suite is rather affordable for its size and amenities and does not make it to the list of expensive hotel suites. The prices start at Singapore $230 which is equivalent to US $185. You get the benefit of booking the suite in advance. Do keep in mind the Typewriter Suite at Wanderlust if you are planning a trip to Singapore.
