Until now, there has only been one InterContinental hotel in Singapore. In 2016 however, major property developer RB Capital will launch the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay. Located along the prominent Singapore River, the 225-room InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay is part of RB Capital’s “Robertson Quay Project” to rejuvenate the area into a vibrant riverfront destination for both tourists and residents. The hotel, which will be on the current Gallery Hotel site, will open in 2016.
When completed, the new luxury hotel, designed by award-winning architecture firm SCDA Architects, will sit atop a mixed use development comprising restaurants, bars and lifestyle retail outlets. Its strategic location in the heart of the city – in close proximity to the world-renowned Orchard Road shopping area, heritage district of Chinatown and the country's central business district – adds to the appeal of InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay for both business and leisure travellers.
InterContinental Robertson Quay will have a contemporary design featuring modern rooms offering views of the Singapore River and city skyline. The ground floor will house the hotel’s arrival lobby, concierge services and the hotel’s flagship restaurant. The hotel reception will be on level four, which will also have meetings rooms, function space, club lounge, a swimming pool and bar.
The InterContinental Singapore at Bugis has long been a favourite amongst seasoned travellers (and more importantly, IHG Rewards Platinum Elite members). I stayed in a Club InterContinental Room with Club Access earlier this year and enjoyed my weekend stay there thoroughly.
