Hotel Vagabond officially joins the Tribute Portfolio (part of Marriott International, Inc.) today - this is also Singapore's very first Tribute Portfolio brand. The 41-room hotel was designed by award-winning French designer Jacques Garcia, blending together traditional Singaporean hospitality with Garcia’s traditional maximalist style. Following the acquisition of the Starwood brand, this is Marriott International's 10th property in Singapore.
The Hotel Vagabond Singapore is located in the Jalan Besar area and despite being a smaller-scale boutique property, guests of Marriott International's (as well as Starwood Preferred Guest - find out about it here) loyalty program will continue to earn eligible nights and enjoy benefits here. The hotel is housed in a colonial-era Art Deco building and guests will even have the opportunity to mingle with resident artists over a crafted cocktail, dine amidst a performance, or watch an independent film. Three times a week, the Salon is transformed into a music venue featuring a line-up of the most talented live musicians and DJs, showcasing local and visiting up-and-coming artists, from jazz quartets to indie rockers. With 5,000 square feet of luxurious interiors, a state-of-the-art sound system, superb acoustics and a DJ console, the Vagabond Salon is designed as a fully integrated, adaptable space for events to remember.
Offering 41 rooms and suites, each guestroom within the hotel features Italian marble and glass mosaic bathrooms, mahogany furniture and luxurious bedding. In the spirit of the hotel’s artistic vibe, each guestroom houses curated photographs and art pieces, commemorating a diverse array of artistic expression across cultures and time periods.
The hotel also features an Executive Club Lounge for intimate meetings, boasting extensive benefits such as exquisite light bites and premium high speed Wi-Fi. Additionally, guests can sample local signature dishes with a cheeky twist at the hotel’s new restaurant Hot Buns & Thunder Balls. Inspired by the tagline “If you must get in trouble, do it at the vagabond,” this fun eatery dishes up East-meets-West burgers and desserts. Discerning drinkers will be delighted with Bar Vagabond’s rotating menu of Asian-inspired craft cocktails, a wide array of artisanal spirits, and Gin and Whiskey trolleys, filled with some of the best bottles in the world.
