Tribute Portofolio, part of Marriott International, debuted its first hotel in Singapore with the addition of Hôtel Vagabond. Owned by Harpreet Bedi and Satinder Garcha, the 41-room hotel was designed by award-winning French designer Jacques Garcia, blending together traditional Singaporean hospitality with Garcia’s traditional maximalist style.


Located just outside the central business district in the indie Jalan Besar area, hôtel vagabond, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel reflects the energy of Singapore. Housed in a colonial-era Art Deco building, the heart and soul of hôtel vagabond is the Vagabond Salon, a modern interpretation of a Parisian salon, where guests have the opportunity to mingle with resident artists over a crafted cocktail, dine amidst a performance, or watch an independent film. Three times a week, the Salon is transformed into a music venue featuring a line-up of the most talented live musicians and DJs, showcasing local and visiting up-and-coming artists, from jazz quartets to indie rockers. With 5,000 square feet of luxurious interiors, a state-of-the-art sound system, superb acoustics and a DJ console, the Vagabond Salon is designed as a fully integrated, adaptable space for events to remember.


Offering 41 rooms and suites, each guestroom within the hotel features Italian marble and glass mosaic bathrooms, mahogany furniture and luxurious bedding. In the spirit of the hotel’s artistic vibe, each guestroom houses curated photographs and art pieces, commemorating a diverse array of artistic expression across cultures and time periods.


The hotel also features an Executive Club Lounge for intimate meetings, boasting extensive benefits such as exquisite light bites and premium high speed Wi-Fi. Additionally, guests can sample local signature dishes with a cheeky twist at the hotel’s new restaurant Hot Buns & Thunder Balls. Inspired by the tagline “If you must get in trouble, do it at the vagabond,” this fun eatery dishes up East-meets-West burgers and desserts. Discerning drinkers will be delighted with Bar Vagabond’s rotating menu of Asian-inspired craft cocktails, a wide array of artisanal spirits, and Gin and Whiskey trolleys, filled with some of the best bottles in the world.


Art at Every Corner

Ranging from antique works to dazzling contemporary mixed media pieces, hôtel vagabond’s extensive collection of art, personally sourced and commissioned by Satinder Garcha, highlights techniques and movements across cultures and centuries. Part of the hotel’s independent spirit, a regular calendar of events positions culture and creativity as accessible for all. The hotel also features a signature rotational artist-in-residence program, which includes on-site performances, intimate events and interactive experiences. Via the hôtel vagabond website, local and international artists from all genres are invited to apply for a residency of up to three months, during which they will stay, work, and converse with guests and visitors.
