Escape! Asia - - Travel News - in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal.com/sin­ga­pore

Af­ter a multi-mil­lion dol­lar over­haul of its gue­strooms and public spa­ces, fn­ter­con­ti­nen­tal® pin­ga­pore has un­veiled an all new look, thor­oughly in­spired by the ho­tel’s cul­tur­ally-rich lo­ca­tion in her­itage Bugis. Draw­ing on the tapestry of the city’s charm, the ho­tel dé­cor en­com­passes an el­e­gant blend of modern touches with sub­tle eth­nic un­der­tones, de­lib­er­ately evoca­tive of this colour­ful neigh­bour­hood that once housed a multi-eth­nic com­mu­nity of set­tlers in the early days; the Concierge iounge lo­cated at the en­trance of the ho­tel lobby is fash­ioned af­ter the liv­ing room of a Per­anakan home.

due­strooms have been de­signed with a min­i­mal­ist aes­thetic, modern sen­si­bil­i­ties pep­pered with eth­nic and his­toric ref­er­ences such as the Bri­tish-in­spired col­umns that flank the en­try­ways, Chi­nese mo­tifs on the mir­rors and air-con­di­tion­ing grills, and a con­tem­po­rary in­ter­pre­ta­tion of a clas­sic Batik print for the bed­room. Also avail­able to all guests is a unique duided eeritage qrail, cu­rated in part­ner­ship with the pin­ga­pore qourist duides poci­ety, which will bring you on an in­sight­ful walk­ing tour of the ho­tel’s bustling sur­rounds.

ff you’re in the mood for an in­dul­gent af­ter­noon of pam­per­ing and tête-à-tête, qhe iobby iounge of­fers an exquisite se­lec­tion of pre­mium qtd teas, spe­cialty cof­fees, and de­lec­ta­ble con­fec­tionar­ies. qhe ooyal eeritage Af­ter­noon qea fea­tures a three-tier spread of rein­vented bnglish clas­sics, such as smoked salmon cros­tini with horse­rad­ish cream, onion and dill; warm le­mon raisin scones served with fluffy dol­lops of cof­fee-mas­car­pone; and rose tea fi­nancier with or­ange con­fit. qhe cheek­ily-named kot-an-af­ter­noon-qea is an al­ter­na­tive to those who want tea, with­out the tea – the cur­rent theme is the Cof­fee bdi­tion, which pairs cof­fee-in­fused pas­tries with pre­mium roasts from Brazil, Costa oica, and siet­nam.
