When it comes to staying at the best boutique hotels in Singapore, there are a plethora of choices for hotel aficionados. But if you’re looking for a contemporary, design-led option in the heart of the Lion City, then Naumi Singapore should definitely be on your radar.


The Naumi brand portrays a cheeky and quirky nature. The name even has a double meaning with Navami, in the Sanskrit language, translating to the 9th day and considered auspicious. While Naumi, pronounced as ‘Know Me’, is about the brand’s desire for guests to get to know each hotel’s unique philosophy. Naumi Singapore was the first of the brand’s hotels, and in recent years, five other properties have entered the fold – all based in New Zealand.
