Intercontinental Singapore – Premier Suite – Review

The last visit to Singapore, I tried out the Grant Hyatt Singapore and was quite impressed, so when I was planning for the trip with Ms. Buddha, I wanted to try something new and being an IHG  Platinum Ambassador member, I thought that Intercontinental Singapore would be a decent idea – especially when the property had gone under refurbishment recently.

I booked the Club Heritage King and got upgraded to the Premier Suite – when we arrived, the Ambassador check-in packed and I didn’t want to waste time at the club lounge (because I was eager to have laksa) – so instead we just checked in at the regular desk – the girl checking us in was fantastic.

Peranankan details everywhere

The room itself was big for just 2 people looking to have a weekend away and furnishing had a Peranakan touch to it – personally, I like it a lot compared to the Grand Hyatt. The only drawback was the singular sink (because Ms. Buddha loves it!) but otherwise, the space is very comfortable.

Comfy sofas!

One of the things I have found consistently great about Intercontinental Properties is their beds, something about them just screams “you’ll love sleeping on me!” – and the IC Singapore was no different!

Super comfy bed!

One last touch that I know Ambassador members are familiar with is you get a little distinct gift when you stay at IC Properties, and with IC Singapore, you get a neat little IWG tea which imitates the look of the IC itself – kinda cute!

IC Ambassador gifts – tea and fruit!

Overall – the IC Singapore compared to the Grand Hyatt was better – mainly because there’s an element of personal touch to the place – in addition to that, the club lounge is always pretty amazing! (More on that soon!)
