Expert review of Naumi

A wonderful city retreat with a surprise view from the rooftop infinity pool.

Naumi is a small design hotel situated in the heart of Singapore’s central business district. This a hidden city retreat aimed at the style conscious, without being pretentious.

Location: 

Most tourist attractions and shops are within walking distance and the famous Raffles hotel is next door. Bugis MRT is a short walk away and it only takes 20 minutes to get to Changi Airport. Some taxi drivers might have trouble finding this hotel, despite it being opened for a number of years now - but I found if you could say ‘Seah Street’ with the right accent, this usually did the trick.

Bedrooms: 

I loved the fresh clean lines and contemporary design of the rooms here. The premier rooms are on the small side, but the next level up – the deluxe room – is vastly bigger with a separate sitting area. All rooms come with an iPod docking station and Nespresso coffee machine. The sixth floor is women-only, where the rooms come with a premium toiletries bag and hair straighteners.

Public areas: 

The lobby and lounge area is a quiet sanctuary from the busy streets of Singapore. Guests can enjoy the origami garden-inspired motifs, reclining in the designer furniture, while watching the streets outside through the full-length glass windows.

Eating and drinking: 

The Lounge Bar doubles as a casual dining area, offering healthy Asian and Western à la carte dishes as well as a set lunch and dinner menu. But for a fraction of the price, you could pop out to any of the local eateries down the same street.

Leisure facilities: 

The skinny infinity pool has a wonderful view of the Singapore skyline. Though there is no dedicated bar or attendants around the pool area, tapas and beverages can be ordered via the phone. There’s a small gym area as well as a dedicated yoga room.

Service: 

Guests are assigned a Naumi aide on arrival, a staff member dedicated to your every need – I found they were best utilised to bring XBox or Wii consoles to your room.

Who stays there: 

Hip young holiday makers and business travellers.

Price advice: 

Free WiFi and complimentary non-alcoholic mini bar are included in the room price, which isn’t a bad deal. The premium rooms are on the small size, if your budget allows, I’d upgrade to a deluxe room for almost double the space. 

Pros: 
Wonderful city view from the infinity pool
Free non-alcoholic mini bar
Women only floor
Cons: 
No dedicated staff assigned to the pool area (though drinks could be ordered by phone)
