Looking for a travel experience that presents all the perks and sensory pleasures of exploration, without the unspoken discomfort and inconveniences? Get involved and soak in the rich cultural heritage of our famously multi-racial country at Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong.
Freshly reopened just earlier this year, the hotel presents a unique opportunity for tourists and locals alike to take in the colours of Singapore’s culture while enjoying the comforts of modern stays – a perfect oasis to escape from the hustle bustle of urban cities.
Situated within Katong, the country’s first Heritage Town, Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong offers a refined experience steeped in old-world charm, where their warm hospitality marries the allure of vintage gems to show us a different kind of urban living.
Taking over the former grounds of the old Joo Chiat Police Station – now a conservation building itself – the hotel features elements strongly influenced by the district’s deep Peranakan roots.
A tribute to Peranakan culture, expect everything from intricate Peranakan ceramic patterns, Peranakan colours and design, as well as pop-art jars and murals to surround you from the moment you enter. You’ll even get to snap insta-worthy shots throughout your stay as they showcase different scenes of the local lifestyle in every single room – so your shot will definitely be a unique one.
What about something more luxurious? Within each room – inspired by the structure and flow of a traditional Peranakan home, no less – are spa-inspired bathrooms that come with those lush aromatherapeutic toiletries that you’d hate to miss out on, for that true weekend retreat.
The meticulously designed hotel also boasts a rooftop infinity pool that overlooks the breath-taking town so you can marvel and enjoy the sublime scene whilst enjoying a sundown session of poolside pleasure.
On top of all of that, none of it would matter if not for the addition of unforgettable gourmet pleasures. At Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong, they pay tribute to the late Mr. Chew Joo Chiat – known as the King of Katong for his selfless contributions to the local community back then. Affectionately dubbed Baba Chews, the popular Modern-Singaporean café and restaurant serves a diverse, all-day menu of elevated local flavours, contemporary Asian signatures with their own added twists, and Western classics for diners with a hankering for international fare.
The dining experience at Baba Chews is enhanced by a menu of quality brews from Common Man Coffee Roasters, TWG Tea, and their range of artisanal alcoholic beverages.
Kick back and chill out with your friends and favourite people at the Hotel Indigo Garden, where a lively pet-friendly al fresco bar awaits – and that’s not all: they’re even offering a two-hour free-flow Sunday Brunch where you’ll get to sip on handcrafted cocktails with the iconic Aperol Spritz alongside the bar’s array of delicious bites, all while surrounded by colourful deck chairs, bean bags, and a photogenic wall garden for endless moments of sun and smiles.
For the more adventurous, don’t forget to speak to the concierge and look out for places to discover, so simply head out and explore – afterall, the hotel is but a stone’s throw away from a multitude of authentic encounters and experiences that the unique cultural heritage of our Little Red Dot has to offer.
