Arriving in heavy rain but with staff member leaping into action with a huge umbrella before we get out of the taxi and ensuring we reach the hotel without a drop of rain touching us. What a good start to our stay!
Naumi hotel is a boutique property lurking just behind the Raffles hotel complex so in a great location. 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 room is high tech haven where you can Airplay mirror what’s on your Macbook or iPad onto the Apple TV or play Xbox 360 or Ninetindo. 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.
The rooms are definitely on the small side so if you need a lot of space or have a lot of luggage then you'd be better off in a suite than in a Habitat room.
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 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. Lounging, sipping and taking in the views was the perfect end to a day in sultry Singapore.
