How do you define romance? At The Scarlet it is expressed with a flirtatious red theme in a richly decorated interior that runs through in all its creatively-appointed rooms and five individually-designed suites.

Housed in a heritage pre-war shophouse building, the luxury boutique hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Chinatown. Just steps away, numerous dining and nightlife options await at the trendy bars and restaurants, unique cafés, specialty shops and art galleries along Ann Siang Hill and Club Street.

The Scarlet Hotel Lobby

One of the first things you see as you step in is the dazzling chandelier that floats above the concept lobby. Right from the start, you get a taste of the opulent style that follows you throughout your stay.

The Scarlet Hotel Splendour Suite

Welcome to the Splendour suite, with prices starting at S$750++ per night if you opt for the Suite Attraction Package that includes a bottle of wine and chocolate-coated strawberries amongst other perks.

The suites are furnished to match their assigned theme. At the Splendour suite, the splendid decor is well-put together with a bold gold-red ensemble, accented with rainbow-coloured touches.

The designer had obviously paid a great deal of attention to ensure that every piece of furniture, furnishing and ornament fits perfectly together.

The rainbow trim on the chair matches the curtains; the oval-shaped wall mirrors match the bed, and even the gold desk clock adds to the lavish feel.

The Hermes toiletries.

…and the rainshower that is big enough for two to share.

The Scarlet Hotel Splendour Suite Jacuzzi

But what really knock us out is the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, which has many jets that deliver a therapeutic water massage.

The Scarlet Hotel Loofah & Bath Salt

If you like, you can soak in a relaxing bath with the bath salts provided.

The Scarlet Hotel Mini Bar

The mini bar contains juices, beers, sodas and water which are all complimentary.

Kettle Potato Chips

So are the Kettle potato chips and assorted nuts. If you do run out of snacks, there’s a 7-Eleven convenience store along the same stretch of shophouses.

The Scarlet Hotel Splendour Suite Restaurant

For breakfast, guests can help themselves to a small international buffet spread paired with an American breakfast set at the flagship restaurant.

The outdoor jacuzzi with a pair of loungers is a nice private spot for couples to hang out at.

Other hotel amenities include Breeze the rooftop bar and a small but adequate gym.

The Scarlet Hotel Fitness Centre

The service is outstanding and near flawless. The staff never fail to greet guests, hold doors open, and make us feel comfortable and important at all times. Whenever we had to request for stuff (like that cute little bar of Hermes soap) the staff delivers it to our door within 5 minutes. There’s also a turndown service that we really appreciate. Overall, a cosy, very romantic and memorable getaway.

As is common in the travel industry, we were provided with complimentary accommodation for the purpose of reviewing the service. While it has not influenced this review, Sparklette Magazine believes in full disclosure of all potential conflicts of interest.
