#3 Oriental Vibes
Where: Amoy by Far East Hospitality, Singapore
What: This quaint boutique hotel is small but packs a mean punch. With a modest 37 rooms, it means you’ll get more attention to detail – service and design wise. Drawing inspiration from its location of Far East Square – a collection of shophouses that used to home Chinese immigrants more than 170 years ago, rooms are individually styled to give guests a glimpse into the past of Chinese diaspora. You’ll find an in-house museum, which was previously a temple, plus heritage accents throughout like Chinese stools and porcelain basins. The décor and concept is exceptional, making it a one-of-a-kind experience, with the juxtaposition of old and new. Plus, it’s the perfect location for exploring the city – Chinatown and its plethora of cool restaurants, bars and clubs (and other singles) are just around the corner.

Cosy wood furnishings, spacious bathrooms with deep soaking bathtubs and separate walk-in rain showers are harmonised alongside panoramic city views of Hong Kong, plus you’ll find a health club, well-dressed team of hotel staff, an elegant atmosphere – what more can one ask for? We say splurge a little more on the Club Suites for extra space and conveniences, including a Nespresso machine and a BOSE sound dock. Better yet, fashionistas will enjoy the one and only Designer Suite by fashion designer, Vivienne Tam, which depicts the notion of oriental chic through its statement furniture of vivacious colours and warm interiors.
