The POD

Although I have never stayed in a pod-style hotel there is certainly something that is rather cool about them. Is it the voyeuristic open end of each pod or just the simplicity of the idea a place to rest without the all bells and whistles that come with hotels. What ever the reason Pod style hotels are a hot trend especially in Singapore in contemporary travel, providing convenience and style in hip locations without a hefty price tag.  Singapore is now home to the youngest pod hotel on the market, the aptly named The POD it features 83 capsule-style rooms in a high-design environment created by Formwerkz Architects.  These mini-rooms each feature a bed, a reading light, a fold-out table and a nearby locker for storing personal items and luggage.  They range in size from a single bed, a double bed or a queen, and The POD also provides female-only pods for the lady traveler which is common practice in Pod hotels.  The pods are arranged within larger rooms, and each pod separates from the rest with a privacy screen at its end.  Beyond each pod, adjoined rooms feature shared bathrooms and the run of the hotel provides lounge spaces, a pantry, laundry facilities and more. Don’t you just love the simple materials pallet that delivers an eco – glam look that is sophisticated and inviting.
