The recently-opened Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong is reflective of the Joo Chiat neighbourhood it stands in. The Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese) design is evident upon entering the 131-room property, where the feature wall behind the reception comprises a collage of intricate Peranakan ceramic patterns.
Designed by renowned architects Ong & Ong, and multidisciplinary architectural practice Eco.id, each 30m2 guestroom sports a mural that depicts the laid-back lifestyle of the neighbourhood, juxtaposed with brightly-coloured Peranakan-inspired furniture pieces.
Each room also mirrors the structure and flow of a condensed Peranakan home, taking guests from the living room to the bedroom and through to the bathroom.
Facilities include the 24-hour Fitness Centre, the rooftop infinity pool, two meeting rooms and the all-day dining restaurant, Baba Chews Bar and Eatery.
Part of InterContinental Hotels Groupâ€™s stable, no two Hotel Indigo hotels around the globe are alike as they have been designed to reflect the local culture and history of the neighbourhood through its design and F&B.
