Escape the city lights and experience Samadhi
in a colonial style hideaway within a tropical nature reserve
Villa Samadhi Singapore is a romantic, colonial style escape which is hidden by the verdant landscape of the Labrador Nature Reserve in the ever-evolving city state of Singapore. Evoking the old Malayan charm of a bygone area, this former enclave of the British Military has been immaculately restored to its former glory. Reflecting its heritage, there is a World War II fort and gun post nearby. This tranquil, boutique resort has only 20 rooms, which combine all the trappings of colonial luxury, such as four-poster beds and twinkling chandeliers, with high tech desires. In Sanskrit, Samadhi is the highest state of meditation. Villa Samadhi aims to deliver a transcendent experience, where the anxieties of daily life are left behind at its door and guests transition to a relaxed state of mind. In a city where space is at a premium, enjoy the expansive grounds of the resort. You can dip into the excitement of Singapore’s cosmopolitan center, with its rich, Asian sights, tastes and sounds and later return to unwind together in the tranquility of Villa Samadhi.

“Villa Samadhi is situated within the 22-hectare Labrador Nature Reserve, which was once an enclave of the British Military. Steeped in colonial history, you can still witness the machine gun post nearby and there are secret tunnels running throughout the area. The villa itself is a colonial building, which once housed members of the artillery division, now lovingly restored over a period of three years. Adhering to colonial design aesthetics, it exudes Malayan charm. We kept to the 1920s British colonial theme and added French colonial touches. Some of the accessories and furniture, such as the teak side tables at the reception area, are genuine antiques handpicked by the owner, Federico Asaro. Others are reproduction of antiques fashioned from recycled teak, balal or chengal wood, designed and manufactured at his workshop in Malaysia. They are all one-off pieces. We want our guests to feel like they can escape the bright city lights of our wonderfully cosmopolitan city and retreat into the slow pace of a bygone era.”
