Have a fun staycation with the family at InterContinental Singapore (from $300++). Here are six reasons we love this affordable kid-friendly holiday experience!
We just found one of the best deals in town! Luxury InterContinental Singapore has launched a family staycation package from $300++ per night for 2 adults, and 2 kids* which includes dinner for the fam, breakfast, unlimited ice cream and an in-room teepee for kids! That’s amazingly good value. Here are six reasons why you should consider booking a staycay here with the family…
1. Super good value
The Family First Staycation package at InterContinental Singapore has been designed to cover everything upfront at an amazing price! Select the package then choose your preferred room or suite – for something different, check out the newly-launched super comfortable and very stylish Family Suites which feature safari-themed bunk beds for the kids (pictured above). For older kids, ask for a room with a sofa bed that can be shared by two (subject to availability). You’ll get breakfast for two adults and two children, as well as a three-course set dinner for two adults, and one main course and dessert for two kids at your choice of Ash & Elm or Man Yu Yuan. The staycay price also includes kids’ bathroom amenities, and as much ice cream as your kids can scoff. Plus kids will be over the moon with the in-room kids’ teepee to play in, and the in-room movie night complete with milkshakes and popcorn!
2. Fab location
The InterContinental Singapore is located in the heart of Bugis – in fact, it connects directly to Bugis Junction so you’ll have great shopping right at your doorstep! The hotel’s location also makes it a perfect launchpad for checking out nearby cultural neighbourhoods of the Arab Quarter too. 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 Kampong Glam and Little India to explore.
3. Lovely swimming pool
Cool off at the lovely outdoor swimming pool in the afternoon – just reserve your spot and get ready for a splashing time. There’s a baby pool, a jacuzzi for the adults to unwind in, and a regular pool that kids will have a blast in. Nestle down in one of the glam Bali-style pods or recline on a sun lounger with a good book – sounds like a blissful afternoon agenda to us!
4. Good dining options
There’s a Western menu at Ash & Elm and dim sum galore at Man Fu Yuan. Your Family First Staycation package includes a three-course set dinner at either restaurant so if you’re in the mood for pasta and seafood or delicious Australian meat head over to Ash & Elm. For a Chinese menu hit up Man Fu Yuan and enjoy the set dinner (you can always top up any dishes and use the 20% discount with your package).
For breakfast, head to Ash & Elm – we love the ambience here, high ceilings with changing lights, and hugely comfy booth seats. Choose from a selection of breakfast options from dim sum and congee to an American Breakfast or eggs on waffles all brought to your table, plus coffee or tea and even a freshly pressed juice – yup, all included in the price!
Don’t forget there’s also unlimited ice-cream for little ones from the ice-cream cart from 1pm to 5:30pm daily at The Lobby Lounge. Just imagine your kids’ faces when you tell them they can have as much ice cream as they want! Flavours change every day – we tried Durian, Gingerbread (so yum) and Passionfruit!
5. Great kid-friendly experiences
We mentioned the kids fun before, but having the kid’s teepee in the room really does get the kids excited! Kids will be over the moon with the in-room movie night offered too (just choose a DVD from the hotel’s extensive collection) and you’ll be brought popcorn and milkshakes to enjoy in bed!
Plus, book to stay from now until 25 December 2020, and you’ll also get extra festive amenities including a gingerbread house making kit.
6. Swish renovated spaces
The InterContinental hotel has been around and stood the test of time which is why it’s such a trusted brand. But the interiors are pretty swish thanks to a recent renovation which brilliantly reflects the artistic and cultural heritage of the surrounding Bugis and Bras Basah districts.
Visit in December to see the glorious Christmas tree in the Lobby Lounge, and partake in afternoon tea as you admire the impressive Peranakan tile work and soaring white pillars. Come evening we are partial to a little aperitif at the bar here. There’s currently an interesting Campari cocktail menu to try out, and each cocktail comes with a little Peranakan ramekin of snacks to enjoy – such a great touch!.
Convinced yet? Better hurry and book while this amazing staycay offer is still on! For less than the cost of a single plane ticket (not that we can really travel at the moment), you can be a tourist in your own city! Although really with the super kids’ fun on offer – the little ones won’t want to leave the hotel!
*Kids must be under 12 years old
