A typically tropical downpour in Singapore; a gallant staff member stepping forth with a huge umbrella before we get out of the taxi to ensure we reach the hotel without a drop of rain touching us. That’s a pretty good start to our stay! Naumi hotel is a 73 room boutique property lurking just behind the Raffles hotel complex. It’s stylish and smart and the staff are sharp in dress and even sharper in service. After our courteous welcome we were led to our room and given a quick tutorial on how everything worked – and this was one room that really needed instruction. The ingenious use of space in the compact rooms means the tea/coffee making facilities are cleverly hidden away in a slide out panel and the ironing board is concealed under the bed. The shower cubicle has ‘magic glass’ which at the touch of a button turns opaque. The staff member told us the button to control this was put high to stop children playing with it. Unfortunately for the hotel, it was within easy reach for us and provided childlike fun during our stay.

The room is high tech haven with an Apple TV/Airplay and Xbox 360 or Ninetindo available. If physical activity is more your thing the hotel has two tiny workout rooms. They may be the smallest workout rooms we’ve seen but we still managed to work up a sweat and build an appetite for the unique breakfast on offer in the lobby restaurant.

Champagne at breakfast may not be all that unusual but protein drinks, vitamin pills and aloe vera juice certainly are; we felt virtuous as we popped the pills before sipping our champagne. The breakfast buffet was small but we loved it and the healthy options it offered. The scrambled tofu was delicious and sealed the deal for this being one of my favourite hotel breakfasts ever.

The most wonderful thing about Naumi is the swimming pool. Oh what a pool! A rooftop infinity pool with views of the Singapore cityscape. We spent a relaxing few hours there after dark, when the poolside becomes a bar. Since we were there early in the evening we had the whole area to ourselves. Lounging, sipping and taking in the views was the perfect end to a day in sultry Singapore.

The Habitat room that we stayed in

Liked – fantastic infinity pool; imaginative and unique breakfast; stylish décor

Disliked – the standard rooms are very compact, if you have a lot of luggage or like to spread out you would be better off in a suite; the hotel website is more fancy than functional and its talk of female guests getting ‘prettied up’’ before going out makes me cringe.

    Very cool. The Infinity Pool looks amazing, especially at night, though I’d freak a bit about going anywhere near the edge I think.

    Having the pool outside, and so full, makes me wonder how they deal with their tropical rainy season? Do they empty the pool? Cover it over? I’d presume (looking at how fast my water butt filled in the UK this weekend gone) that a tropical deluge might make the pool dirty and over flowing?

    Anyway – great read as always – short and succinct…just the way I like my reads

      It rains almost every day in Singapore and just goes right into the pool. They don’t cover it and it’s great being in the pool in the warm, tropical rain. In fact they don’t cover it at night when the poolside turns into a bar either. In the UK that would be a recipe for disaster, I’m sure!
