The coolest new kid on Keong Saik, the intimate 45-room Hotel Soloha evokes tropical modernism that fits perfectly into the charming street. Swing through the wooden panel doors of the white and blue facade, and you'll be greeted by witty and bold interiors and artisanal furnishings. The hotel provides a refreshing burst of colour that juxtaposes against the earthy tones of the surrounding neighbourhood.
Your experience starts at the reception counter, which doubles up as a technicolour bar. It ties in the rest of the urban jungle chic aesthetic together, from the wall's bold colours to the earthy, tropical elements. It's a scene straight out of a Wes Anderson movie, with its comfy indigo and blush pink velvet and rattan sofas, terrazzo tables and fresh flowers at Takeshi Noodle Bar, a fusion ramen establishment.
There are five room categories – the standard, superior, deluxe, loft and suite, with deluxe rooms starting from $250 a night. Perfect for the social nomad, the rooms have been cleverly outfitted with state-of-the-art amenities. After a full day exploring Singapore, kick back while taking advantage of the smart cable TV armed with cable and paid channels, as well as Youtube, Netflix and Spotify access.
