Metropolitant’s Staycation – Hotel Indigo Katong

There’s a reason why we love the east of Singapore. With amazing good food, like Katong Laksa, Kim Choo Dumplings and Five Star Hainanese Chicken Rice you will be spoiled for choice! We chose Hotel Indigo Katong for a good reason, to pretend to be a #eastie. In the East Coast area, you’ll find many great restaurants as well as a chance to learn more about the Peranakan culture, or just shop to your heart’s content and engage in recreational activities at the East Coast Park.

The hotel housed in the former Joo Chiat police station and features design infused with the local Peranakan culture; art murals in the rooms depict the laidback, communal lifestyle of the neighborhood. Situated near to Katong I12 and Parkway Parade, you can grab a late night movie or pretend you stay in the cool neighbourhood of Katong.


Designed by renowned architects Ong & Ong and multi-disciplinary architectural practice Architects and Design Consultancy, Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong thoughtfully incorporates highlights of the Katong neighbourhood story into the hotel’s creative design.

Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong features design elements inspired by the rich and vibrant culture of the Peranakans (Straits-born Chinese).

This includes a feature wall at the hotel’s reception comprising a collage of intricate Peranakan ceramic patterns and colourful pop-art renditions of water jars, art murals in each room that depict the laidback, communal lifestyle of the neighbourhood, as well as a pop-up ‘mama stall’ reminiscent of small convenience stalls often located in housing estates of the 1960s, displaying local artisans’ crafts in the hotel’s pavilion.

Baba Chews Bar and Eatery, serves authentic modern and traditional cuisine from the Straits of Malacca, as well as a delectable selection of Western favourites. It also offers locally-inspired food such as Ayam Buah Keluak and Foie Gras Tau Kwa Pau, coffee from beans roasted by local specialty coffee roasters Common Man Coffee Roasters, tea from TWG Tea, and innovative local cocktails.

The 30-square metre guest rooms mirror the structure and flow of a condensed Peranakan home, taking guests from the living room to the bedroom through to the spa-inspired bathroom which features aromatherapeutic toiletries.

Guests can also utilise a 24-hour Fitness Centre with Technogym equipment or take a relaxing dip in the hotel’s rooftop infinity pool while enjoying the spectacular view of the cultural enclave of Katong. We arranged a few photoshoot in the room and it turned out amazing!
