Joining the Villa Samadhi Kuala Lumpur and Japamala Resort in Tioman Island, Samadhi Retreats is set to unveil the group's third property in Singapore - Villa Samadhi Singapore. Slated to open on 05 January 2017 (with impressive opening rates of up to 40% off!), Villa Samadhi Singapore is housed in a heritage 20th century colonial garrison and is set amidst the lush greenery of the Labrador Nature Reserve.
Villa Samadhi Singapore is designed to reflect the garrison's rich heritage and history and the hotel plays tribute to the elegant charm of old Malaya. Villa Samadhi Singapore features 20 alluring chambers that are furnished in perfect harmony with its colonial architecture, offset against the period’s blue and white china. Several rooms have sweeping walkways and all look out to views of towering trees and wildlife. The hotel is complemented by Tamarind Hill, which serves 100 traditional and modern Thai dishes created from heirloom recipes.
Samadhi Retreat’s signature is its careful selection of its properties, a process that involves a ‘Hine-tooth combing’ of the region to uncover a property special enough in its location and character. Its resorts and villas are typically small, where its brand promise of the Samadhi experience may be enjoyed in an intensely personal way. Villa Samadhi Singapore is the third property in this collection, the Hirst being Japamala Resort, which opened in 2004 and Villa Samadhi Kuala Lumpur, which opened in 2011. A common thread that runs through all Samadhi properties is its discreetly hidden locations that offer privacy and exclusivity.
To celebrate its opening, Villa Samadhi Singapore is offering two packages, inviting guests to enjoy a unique experience set against the idyllic backdrop of nature. Enjoy 40% and 20% off Best Available Rates for stays between 3-31 January 2017 as well as 01 February - 30 April 2017 respectively. The Pre-Opening and Opening Specials are inclusive of daily breakfast for two, daily evening cocktails for two at The Lounge as well as signature turndown service offering complimentary Cognac, Asian snacks and chocolate. Villa Samadhi Singapore will accept room reservations from December 2016. For enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.villasamadhi.com.sg.
