Words: Tanya Joslin

A luxury Singapore hotel with a dash of whimsy, Naumi Singapore offers a sky-high sanctuary in one of Southeast Asia’s favourite holiday playgrounds. The exclusive rooftop pool is reason enough to book a stay here! And what’s in a name? Naumi refers to the auspicious ‘9th day’ in Sanskrit and is pronounced know-me — a playful nod to the hotel’s unique personality.

In Singapore city’s pulsing heart, Naumi Singapore offers a blissful oasis of luxury and tranquillity. Sophistication, comfort and design blend seamlessly in this elevated boutique hotel, creating the perfect place to unwind after a day of shopping and sightseeing.

Discerning travellers will appreciate the curated feel and prime location — just across from Singapore’s grand dame, Raffles Hotel, as well as the MRT and a range of dining and shopping outlets. Basically, you’ll have the best of Singapore on your doorstep.

Naumi’s elegant yet striking aesthetic has become its calling card. Think clean lines, neutral tones, and earthy timbers complemented by statement furniture and lighting from B&B Italia, Poltrona Frau, Magis, Artemide and Foscarini Diesel.

The 73 elegantly appointed rooms and suites are designed for couples with plush king beds, Egyptian cotton linens, complimentary minibars, and much more. The design-driven details of the themed rooms and suites (hello, Coco Chanel) deliver that extra layer of luxe for a romantic getaway.

There’s also a fitness studio, an excellent Italian restaurant, and the exclusive Cloud 9 Infinity Pool and Bar where you can take in breathtaking views of the Singapore skyline while lounging poolside with an Aperol Spritz. This rooftop haven is one of Singapore’s best-kept secrets and only available to in-house guests.

Tailor-made for a Singapore sojourn, this ultra-stylish urban retreat was just ranked Best of the Best in the 2023 Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice awards.

The location:

Naumi Singapore enjoys a prime location in the heart of the Central Business District. It’s only a 20-minute ride from the airport, allowing you to check in and slip straight into holiday mode.

Nearby, you’ll find shops and photo-ops galore, including Raffles City shopping and the historic Raffles Hotel: birthplace of the famous Singapore Sling. Slide up to the Long Bar and sip this iconic cocktail as it was meant to be made. You can then stroll to must-see attractions including the excellent National Gallery of Singapore and Clarke Quay.

Not sure what to see and do in Singapore? Don’t worry, Naumi has you covered with the N9: a list of handpicked highlights including the Singapore Flyer, the vibrant Arab Street district, and the incredible Art Deco-inspired lobby & bar, Atlas.

Food & drink:

Start your day off right … with a glass of Champagne! Bubbly plus an array of juices and breakfast favourites await your pleasure in the hotel’s cosy lounge.

Make sure one of your evenings has you at Florian, the best Italian restaurant and bar in Singapore, with a choice of two dining options. Cosy up indoors or feast alfresco on the first floor or head to the 10th-floor rooftop for relaxed sunset snacks.

For many couples, the main event at Naumi is the exclusive Cloud Nine Infinity Pool & Bar and its Insta-ready swimming pool. Arrive for golden hour cocktails and stay on for the magical city lights that set the skyline ablaze after dark.

Best room for two:

Camelia room in Naumi Singapore

With 73 luxurious rooms and suites designed especially for couples, you can’t go wrong! Each holds its own charm — from the understated luxury of the Oasis rooms to the golden wonderland of the Suvarna suites — and all feature a king bed adorned with sumptuous Egyptian cotton linens.

You’ll also be spoiled with Antipodes bath amenities, Apple TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, a yoga mat, Nespresso coffee machine, and complimentary mini bar (most rooms also have a decadent freestanding bathtub).

For couples on a romantic getaway, the designer-themed rooms and suites come highly recommended. Whether you choose the playful Pop Art accents of Eden & Nirwana or the chic minimalism of Gabrielle & Camellia, you’re sure to find your style sanctuary. Or, for a breath of fresh air, opt for the private outdoor space of a Patio room.

We stayed in a Camellia room, an excellent size for Singapore at 43 sqm. Camellia boasts a chic monochromatic aesthetic and a serene vibe, perfect after a busy day exploring this dynamic city. We loved the inspiration behind it, the iconic Coco Chanel who famously declared: “Luxury must be comfortable to truly be considered as such.” So true, especially when it comes to hotels!

Beautiful black-and-white floral art pieces featuring camellias (Coco’s favourite flower), were created through a collab between award-winning French photographer Olivier Henry and Singaporean artist Aiman. Stunning. We were also impressed by the deep, luxurious bathtub and cool room tech. Case in point? The bathroom’s glass panels that can be adjusted from transparent to opaque with the push of a button. Be sure to say yes to a room tour to discover all these hidden treasures.

One of the things that will truly impress you at Naumi is the elegant yet easy luxury vibe. It’s artful, unique, and makes you feel indulged and pampered without feeling stuffy. The hotel’s international art collection is also noteworthy, including specially commissioned artworks such as Jonathan Adler’s hippo installations and a four-storey graffiti mural on the exterior.

Couples will also adore the food offerings in and around the hotel and exclusive access to the rooftop infinity pool. Few things compare to sitting side by side in comfy poolside loungers, sipping cocktails in the sunshine. Or watching sunset over the Singapore skyline at Cloud 9 after a day of shopping and sightseeing around this fabulous metropolis.

The clincher? You’ll have the city in the palm of your hand. Couples can curate a romantic Singapore itinerary from the comfort of this sky-high urban sanctuary.
