Lazarus Island is known for its quiet and pristine beaches, and soon, a holiday destination?
The idyllic island, just a quick ferry ride from Singapore will soon be transformed into an eco-tourist destination with the introduction of ‘tiny houses’ for accommodation on the island.
The project called Tiny Away Escape @ Lazarus Island will see five tiny units being set up. The 150 to 170 sq ft units comes with a queen-sized bed, fully equipped kitchen, air-conditioning and even a hot water shower.
The bigger 170 sq ft unit will have an additional sofa bed for extra guests and floor-to-ceiling windows that give you a clear 180-degree view of the water. On top of that, two out of five of the units will be pet friendly.
Green features include solar panels and a compostor that turns food waste into compost within 24 hours.
Each unit is fitted and decorated in different style so visitors can choose their vibe from industrial to British Colonial (lol).
Bookings for a stay will be open to the public from May onwards. One night will set you back approximately S$178.
The houses are operated by Big Tiny, an Australian-based company co-founded by a Singaporean.
As of yesterday, more than 600 people have registered their interest to secure a stay on the island.
Lazarus Island will also see more upgrades like new amenities and attractions like a convenience store, overnight glamping experiences and non-motorised water activities launched in phases from June.
