    A revamped historic hotel on a Chinatown street in Singapore once notorious for housing wealthy men's mistresses, the New Majestic, with its shophouse façade, blends perfectly with the neighborhood. But inside, the juxtaposition of antique and modern, interior and exterior, provides a theatrical environment where guests can indulge their imaginations. The 30 guestrooms are individually crafted visions by a diverse group of creatives enlisted by Colin Seah of Ministry of Design. His core crew came up with four room ‘typologies,’ including the Hanging Bed Rooms where larger-than-life murals span whole walls, and the sensuous Loft Room where vintage twin tubs look up on an attic-area sleeping space that appears to float. In the hotel's restaurant, ceiling portholes open onto the floor of the outdoor pool, as swimmers cast shadows onto the tables below, while the sensuously curved white staircase seems to invite a line of chorus girls. Majestic, indeed.

    Rooms & Suites

    Each of New Majestic Hotel’s 30 rooms is individually designed and comes in different shapes and sizes. They range from attic-style rooms with six-meter high ceilings to those with private gardens. Emerging artists form Singapore were commissioned to create artworks on-site, which include joyful pop art murals and upside-down anamorphic messages that, along with vintage and designer furniture, create one-of-a-kind fantastical spaces. Perks include private verandahs with a vintage cast-iron bathtub or loft beds, while each of the customized baths features Kiehl’s products.

    Above & Beyond

    The New Majestic Hotel is a stimulating brew of local culture, art, and design that pries apart the molds of convention. The dramatic all-white open concept period lobby features vintage Compton fans, while the Majestic Restaurant, which is a modern reinterpretation of one of old Singapore’s favorite Chinese dining rooms, offers a dramatic lap pool with glass inserts floating above. Owner/creator Loh Lik Peng has engaged five of the city’s most prominent creative talents drawn from the fields of interior and graphic design, fashion and film production to personalize the five signature suites. The results are spaces ranging from cement-clad serenity to an outrageous party-den in fuchsia and turquoise. With all its quirkiness, the New Majestic Hotel is a tasteful concoction of heritage chic and modern design that brings out Singapore’s best—both old and new.

    Of the 30 rooms, some feature floor to ceiling mirrors; others feature aquarium-like bathtubs in the middle of the room, whimsical four-poster beds suspended by poles from the ceiling, or a garden terrace with an outdoor tub. Each has been transformed into a visual and conceptual experience through site-specific artwork created by nine of Singapore’s emerging artists.

    Loh Lik Peng

    Loh Lik Peng’s global lifestyle draws him to different places for different reasons. The intimate scale of Dublin reminds him of his childhood, while London’s East End is all about the energetic vibe and the sense that new things are happening all the time. He opened his first venture, Hotel 1929, in a former brothel in Singapore’s red-light district in 2003. With its swank design and instant buzz, 1929 became a popular destination for travelers and locals alike. Three years later he opened the New Majestic and upped the style quotient in Singaporean hospitality even further. Three new properties opened recently (another in Singapore where he now lives, and one each in Shanghai and London). And not one of them is located in what your average guidebook would have considered the ‘right’ kind of neighborhood—that is until his properties have put their once-undesirable districts on the style map.
