InterContinental Singapore has stepped up its focus on its unique Straits Chinese guest experience with the launch of its revamped shophouse guest rooms and suites.
The hotel, which preserves an entire row of the Peranakan-style shophouses from the 1920s as an integral feature of its architecture, has given its 65 shophouse rooms and suites a major makeover to reflect the Peranakan heritage that dates back to the 17th century when seafarers from China married indigenous Malays.
However, room amenities are firmly based on 21st century, incorporating leading-edge technology including a Bose wave music system and an array of media connections including HDMI, USB, Internet data connection and PC link inputs allowing guests to project their laptop screen on the room’s 46” LED TV. An iPhone and iPod-compatible docking station, European designer bathroom fittings and sumptuous bedding complete the luxurious experience.
Taking their inspiration from the private homes of Peranakan families who used to live on the upper floors of their businesses in the heart of the Bugis district where the InterContinental Singapore is located, the shophouse rooms and suites all feature touches of the rich Pernakan heritage including dark teak flooring, intricate carvings and artifacts.

Finding great holiday villa Rentals in Cyprus is as easy as taking a walk on the street and looking at one great holiday villa after another. Of course, most people probably want to rent the holiday villas and have things arranged before they go to Cyprus, so this article is going to share some tips on how to make that happen. It can be a little confusing since when you look up Cyprus holiday villas you end up getting over one million search results.
To narrow that down, use the expedient of putting Cyprus in quotation marks “Cyprus” and holiday villas in quotation marks “Cyprus villas”, put a plus sign (+) between the two and now your search should be much more manageable since you’ve told Google that you want all the words to be included and to treat ‘Holiday Villas’ as a single phrase. You’ve cut the number of results more than in half now.
Now you begin your search in earnest. Look at the top results. These are probably broken into a couple of different categories. First of all you have the big sites like Trip Adviser and Holiday Homes. These are great resources, but to get the best deals and find the true gems in Cprus, the best bet is to dig deeper and get into direct contact with the owners of the villas. When you do this, you can ask questions, negotiate the prices, and make sure that you understand exactly how to get to your holiday villa. That’s important! Continue Reading
