Been to Bugis and Bras Basah lately, mama? There’s no better way to explore Singapore’s fab heritage district than with a staycation at the newly-renovated InterContinental Singapore. It’s time to treat yourself!
Wanna get away, mama, but can’t be fussed to organise flights? Consider a staycation at the luxury InterContinental Singapore! With a fab city centre location (so much shopping right at your doorstep!), newly-renovated guest rooms and spaces, and outstanding dining options, it’s the perfect vacation from everyday life!
Following a multi-million dollar renovation, the InterContinental feels like a brand new hotel with its newly-revamped Main Tower guestrooms and suites, which brilliantly reflect the artistic and cultural heritage of the surrounding Bugis and Bras Basah districts. In fact, a staycation is the perfect opportunity to be a tourist in your own city, as the hotel has recently launched a guided Heritage Trail for guests to discover the neighbourhood’s many hidden charms.
In fact, there are more than 20 historical sites, national monuments, art institutions and museums within a short walk of the hotel, not to mention vibrant areas like Arab Street, Kampong Glam and Little India.
If you bring the kiddos along, there’s plenty to keep them busy, from nearby attractions like Imaginarium @ SAM to the movie theatre across the street, not to mention the hotel’s lovely outdoor swimming pool. And then of course you’ve got the beautiful rooms: we’re not gonna lie, mama, kiddos will probably delight in jumping on the amazing, custom-made plush beds and raiding the stocked bathrooms, while parents will appreciate the tranquil, light-filled interiors and Peranakan-inspired tile motifs. The rooms are Stunning with a capital S!
The vibe begins in the double-height lobby lounge, where you can grab a lovely afternoon tea or just relax and people watch while admiring the impressive Peranakan tile work and soaring white pillars. And while we were huge fans of the kid-friendly brunch at Ash & Elm, there’s a whole lot more to discover, including its delectable European-inspired brasserie dinners (do not miss the charcuterie & cheese room, mama!).
Sounds tempting, right? Wait’ll you hear the best part: from now through the end of the year, the InterContinental is offering a ‘Discover Heritage’ staycation package that includes accommodation in a Deluxe Room, daily buffet breakfast, a $50 dining credit, free Internet, and late checkout to 4pm (subject to availability). It starts at $350++, and if you choose to upgrade to a Premier Suite you’ll also get access to Club InterContinental which includes afternoon tea and free-flow evening cocktails! Terms and conditions apply, mama, so see the website for more deets!
We love what the InterContinental is doing to bring Singapore’s heritage to the rest of the world, why not check it out for yourself, mama? For less than the cost of a single plane ticket you can be a tourist in your own city!
