Rustic yet contemporary, newly opened boutique hotel The Great Madras is what aesthetic-enthusiasts’ dreams are made of. At this 34-room abode in the heart of the culture-heavy district of Little India, you’ll find yourself transported to a world that would fit right into a Wes Anderson film.
The hotel’s open-air lobby that greets you upon arrival only invites a further look at the other eccentricities that it offers. From old-school furniture and a floral-printed laundry area, The Great Madras is truly visually arresting at every turn. The six different types of rooms only take this sentiment further. The 18m² Balcony Room might be tight for a maximum occupancy of two people, but the quirky wallpaper, glowing lamps in pastel hues and balcony overlooking the outdoors, more than make-up for its size. Or, opt for The Great Suite, a 20m² cozy room that comes with a study table and a circular bathtub to soak in the enchanting vibes.
Once you’re done admiring the interior, step outside and dip into the outdoor pool, that’s just the right level of shallow for kids as well. Or pop into The Golden Rule Barber, a retro barbershop that offers haircuts to make gentlemen (or gentleboys) look their most dashing. Make sure not to check out your stay without snapping a picture in front of the hotel’s many neon-lit signs harboring inspirational quotes either – from “Go Everywhere, Do Everything” to “Choose To Shine” – that will make both the young and the young at heart light up just as brightly!
A quick getaway in a picturesque hotel sounds like a perfect weekend plan. Plus, prices are affordable from only S$90 per night!
Couples looking for a getaway from the bustle of the city, with or without the kids.
The hotel has bicycles to rent out, so you can also have the liberty of exploring the neighborhood on wheels.
