Co-founded by Harpreet Bedi and Satinder Garcha, Hotel Vagabond is the first hotel in Asia to be designed by the world-renowned French designer Jacques Garcia. Housed in a 1950s heritage Art Deco building, this luxurious boutique hotel’s interior is reminiscent of a French salon – heavily drenched in rich, bold colours, peculiar art pieces and inspiring artworks. The hotel also conducts artist-in-residence sessions where you can meet and mingle with resident artists over a beautifully crafted cocktail at the salon lounge.
