InterContinental Hotels & Resorts prides itself on promoting the local heritage of destinations where an InterCon flag happens to be flying. The Peranakan-themed InterContinental Singapore is a good example.
Drawing inspiration from the ornate art and culture of the Peranakans or Straits-born Chinese, the hotel features intricate mirrors, batu ribbons and louvred windows along the corridors imbuing the ambience with a sense of old Singapore. This feeling is now carried into the new Club InterContinental Lounge, which displays a blend of intricately carved wood panels, richly patterned carpets and exquisite chinoiserie and the latest technology. Leisure meets efficiency in a serene setting.
Guests seeking in-depth knowledge about Singapore can peruse a well-stocked library that even includes Peranakan literature. While those chasing deadlines always have personalised support at hand, whether that means high-speed connectivity or a boardroom to host private meetings. Meals are a whole-day affair, beginning with a hot dish breakfast all the way to evening canapés. Visit www.ihg.com
