Christmas (2015) at the InterContinental Singapore

While we are all eagerly waiting for the second InterContinental property to open in Singapore next year, Christmas (2015) this year at the InterContinental Singapore comes in different shapes and sizes. For starters, the hotel's brand new restaurant, Ash & Elm, which took over Olive Tree Restaurant a few months ago, will be presenting exquisite dinner and lunch menus for the season ahead. For those of you who love the grandeur of the Lobby Lounge, indulge in a delightful festive tea or bring home some of the beautifully-crafted yuletide treats. For the ultimate experience, spend a weekend in the heart of the cultural precinct, Bugis, at the InterContinental Singapore!
