THE WARE­HOUSE HO­TEL, SIN­GA­PORE

Oc­cu­py­ing an iconic 1895 godown (ware­house) on the banks of Robert­son Quay—a build­ing that stood at the cen­tre of a host of se­cret so­ci­eties, un­der­ground ac­tiv­i­ties and liquor dis­til­leries dur­ing the 19th cen­tury—the ho­tel has been metic­u­lously re­stored by award-win­ning lo­cal de­sign agency Asy­lum. The sleek in­dus­trial decor ex­tends to the spa­cious rooms and suites, most of which come with river views and all with vast show­ers and lots of nat­u­ral light. The ho­tel’s restau­rant, Po, serves up mod­ern spins on lo­cal favourites un­der the watch of Wild Rocket founder Willin Low. There’s a crack­ing lobby bar and a rooftop pool that over­looks the river, sit­ting peace­fully above the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city. the­ware­house­ho­tel.com
