10 Reasons Why You Will Love Oakwood Studios Singapore & Its #CuratedSecrets

Share Article

Service apartments usually strike us as a practical (usually boring) short or long term accommodation for business travellers or family. Our recent short stay at Oakwood Studios Singapore got us to toss that traditional mindset out of the window! Located just off Orchard Road, this swanky new service apartment is out to impress with its gorgeous pop art interior decor, well-thought facilities and #curatedsecrets services! Here are 10 reasons why you will love Oakwood Studios Singapore and its #CuratedSecrets!

1. Location, Location, Location

This swanky new service apartment is located at Orchard Road – Singapore’s prime shopping belt and just walking distance from both Somerset and Orchard MRT Station. Staying at the heart of the city means that you are also within close proximity to the city’s CBD district, popular attractions, and trendy neighbourhoods.

2. #CuratedSecrets – Bespoke Services For Every Guest

Unlike most hotels and service apartments which strive to take care of every whim and fancy during the stay, your experience at Oakwood Studios Singapore starts a week before your actual check in! Curation plays a big role in their guest experience and Oakwood wants to get to know you better through an online questionnaire which requires you to define your notion of ‘chilling out’, what you want to see in your fridge, your taste in scent and many other questions! Choose carefully because your answers will materialise into special #CuratedSecrets experiences when you check in! 

3. Award Winning Hotel

Despite its modest facade, Oakwood Studios Singapore is filled with surprises and interesting elements. The property was awarded Best Interior Design at the recent Serviced Apartment Awards 2017. Yet another reminder not to judge a book by its covers.

As soon as you enters the lobby, you will be welcomed by red check-in pods which ascribe to the little red dot which Singapore has come to be known as. Suspended from the ceiling, a contemporary light installation featuring tubes of red and white acrylic with energy-saving LED lamps to illuminate a ‘thumbs up’ Singapore reflected for all to see. Neon lights and LED diodes are also utilised at the lift lobby as an art element, making it an eye-catching statement for residents every time they go up to their apartment. These clever and creative touches across the property by local design firm FBEYE add to the stylish and modern vibe across the public spaces.

4. Instagrammable Moments At Every Turn

No doubt about this, prepare your camera to milk this service apartment interiors to the max. Let’s start while waiting for the lift to our rooms, shall we? Pout and strike a pose!

5. Spacious & Fully Furnished Apartments 

Furnished for independent living, Oakwood Studios Singapore offers 98 units of serviced apartments with fully-equipped kitchens, stylish interiors and tech-enabled amenities. You can choose from Studio,

one-bedrooms or

two-bedroom apartments. Your rooms will be specially customised for your preference based on your online questionnaire answers.

6. Enjoy Samsung Lifestyle Products Throughout Your Stay

Besides a comfortable queen bed with amazingly soft sheets, each Oakwood Studios Singapore also comes with a suite of Samsung lifestyle products. This partnership with Samsung equips your room with a Samsung refrigerator, television, r7 wireless speaker and smartphone. The Samsung smartphone replaces the landline and offers complimentary data. This is great for the overseas guest who can simply take it along with them when visiting local attractions.

7. Purchase Art Off The Wall Literally!

Contemporary art pieces in your apartments and common spaces come from LUMAS Gallery and featured contemporary photography art from well-known artists such as Erwin Blumenfeld, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Edward Kasper, Thierry Noir and Joe McDermott. The LUMAS retail program in Oakwood Studios Singapore allows you to purchase your favourite pieces directly off the wall!

8. Socialize Whichever Way You Desire! 

In Socialize – the residents’ lounge on the ground floor – you are presented with a space where you and your guest can interact amongst the quirky furnishings, and make use of the open kitchen.

This flexibility allows them to seamlessly alternate between work and pleasure.

The world’s first Samsung irregular mirror video wall in the hospitality industry can also be found here, showcasing vibrant digital artworks to inspire, and functioning as a mirror when switched off.

Those with a musical interest will be able to rent this Steinway Gallery Singapore piano for their apartment.

Socialize is never complete without social media. Oakwood Studios Singapore invites everyone to share their experience by adding hashtag #CuratedSecrets to their Instagram posts! All tagged posts will appear on their cool social wall!

9. Spaces To Unwind & Retreat

The lounge furnishings in the al fresco area – think cabanas in the middle of Orchard area – offer guests the ultimate place to unwind.

A spiral staircase by the corner leads up to Retreat – an outdoor garden terrace on the second floor

and is the perfect place to have some me-time with a good book, or for some yoga stretches.

10. Rooftop Pool, BBQ & Gym Completes The Package

On the rooftop, you can unwind and escape the bustling surroundings at the gym

or swimming pool featuring the iconic Oakwood Studios lip motif.

LED lounge furniture add allure to the overall setting with an adjacent barbeque pit.

Oakwood Studios Singapore surprised us with its unexpected touches throughout the property, ranging from the quirky designed interior to modern art pieces, to tech-enabled infotainment, provide elements of surprise that inject freshness into our staycation, which is not commonly found in serviced apartments. If you are swinging by Singapore for a short visit, reserve your stay and experience Oakwood Studios Singapore #CuratedSecrets service yourself!
