A luxury landmark set in the heart of a vibrant historic precinct, InterContinental Singapore encompasses an elegant blend of modern touches with subtle Peranakan elements. This is particularly true in the hotel’s Heritage Wing, where the rooms and suites preserve the style of Singaporean shophouses from the 1920s.

With timber floorings and duck egg–blue paneling as well as louvered windows and wooden shutters overlooking the streets below, these Straits Chinese–inspired spaces evoke the lifestyle of a bygone era while exuding residential charm. Peranakan-style furniture, artifacts, and latticework transport you back to a more stately time, while high-tech conveniences ensure modern comfort. And when it comes time to step out, the historical enclaves of Arab Street and Kampong Glam are just a short walk away.
