The Scarlett, Singapore

The Scarlet, Singapore


There’s something really sensual about this property. Set in a series of old-world Chinatown heritage shop-houses, it’s less romantic and more sexually charged – and certainly not shy of innuendo. The elegant and distinct design harks back to old-world Singapore as a hedonistic, international mecca – think boudoirs and opium dens, but with mod cons to suit the modern traveller.

One thing that was a little out of place was the aloofness of the staff, something that is uncharacteristic of hotels in this country: however, with this comes great discretion and privacy. Plus it seems the Scarlet is quite the destination of choice for pink-cardcarrying fashionistas.

With a gym called Flaunt, a bar called Bold, and a ‘can’t get closer to the gay scene’ location, we’re not all that surprised.

At OutThere, we believe in boundless travel. But we understand that some destinations can pose challenges to travellers that complicate visiting them. We advise all visitors to inform themselves about local legislation and customs, and to work with a trusted travel provider in order to ensure a safe and pleasant holiday.
