The Intan is a private home-turned-museum in the Joo Chiat area that houses an impressive collection of artefacts and antiques belonging to the Peranakan (Straits Chinese) culture.
The attraction recently rolled out two experiences targeted at corporates, The Intan Private Dining Experience, and Wellness @ The Intan.
The Intan Private Dining Experience starts from S$180 (US$127) per pax, and can accommodate up to a maximum of 30 individuals. Come hungry, for the seven-course meal will include dishes such as babi pongteh (pork belly braised in fermented soyabean paste), ngoh hiang (meat rolls), and otak (a spicy fish cake grilled and wrapped in banana leaf). The meal finishes with an ice-cold bowl of chendol, shaved ice with pandan jelly, coconut milk, and gula melaka (palm sugar).
The experience also includes a tour of the museum with owner Alvin Yapp and a closer look at its treasures, as well as a walk around Geylang Serai Market to learn more about the ingredients used in traditional Peranakan cooking.
Yapp has also unveiled a Wellness @ The Intan experience, which is good for up to eight individuals at S$300 per person.
In addition to a tour of the museum with Yapp, the whole experience revolves around allowing corporates to enjoy a Sound Bath onsite. Conducted by an expert, a Sound Bath is a meditative experience where participants are “bathed” in sound waves produced by various sources, including healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks, or the human voice.
Among the benefits are relaxation, an increased sense of well-being, expanded awareness, and access to inner visionary experience.
