Intercontinental Singapore Luxurious Heritage Staycation

Location: Singapore


Everything You Need to Know About The 5-Star Bugis Hotel for An Enhanced Sensory Experience.

One of the most common questions I receive is, “Do you prefer Malaysia or Singapore?”. Whenever I ask the same question back, the reply I usually get goes along the lines of “Singapore is so small; there’s nothing to do – you’ll get bored of it pretty soon”.

For É and I, Cingapore has become our little world of staycations. Today the city houses many of our precious memories as a couple even before we moved to lion city. InterContinental Singapore is definitely no stranger to our list and our favorite one up-to-date. If you’re looking for the best staycation in Singapore, look no further. Here’s why:


You receive complimentary two-way limousine transfers to and from ANY destinations in Singapore when you stay in the Executive, Royal, Ambassador or Presidential Suite.

Imagine if you have family or friends visiting from overseas – instead of picking them up from the airport, this would be a very handsome welcome!


At 3 p.m., we embark on a hotel tour to unveil the history of the building and the story behind each detail.

Instagrammers, take note: I learn that this staircase is one of the best wedding photo spots at the hotel, so don’t miss it!


Our room is a real slumberland made of sweet dreams ✨ Every time I lie on the bed it literally makes me feel as royal as the princess from The Princess and The Pea.

From the quality of pillows and bed to thread counts, we finally get a good deep sleep after a long week of work; which is priceless, waking up feeling super recharged.

The furnishing of this entire hotel is inspired by the city’s rich heritage, blended with modern day comfort for a timeless elegance.

I HIGHLY recommend upgrading to the executive suites to receive the free limo transfer (mentioned above) and the access to Club InterContinental Lounge, where you can enjoy a host of complimentary bespoke services and privileges.




Each room is given a smartphone with 4G data and local/IDD calls up to 10 countries and this will increase to 20 countries in 2018! Guests can use this phone outside the hotel without having to worry about getting a new SIM card. The best part is getting to enjoy exclusive discounts at most attraction places using the phone!

With access to the Club InterContinental Lounge, you get to enjoy culinary indulgences including:

  • A la carte breakfast: 6.30 a.m. – 10.30 a.m.
  • Afternoon tea: 2.30 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres: 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

É and I couldn’t even eat dinner anymore after that! So if you ask us, we say it’s totally worth the upgrade.


Another tip: Get your clothes pressed (two pieces) upon arrival for the evening cocktail and enjoy 25% savings on all laundry services.
