Katong is a neighbourhood in the Eastern Central area of Singapore, and from the late 9th to the mid 20th century the wealthy elites who made their fortunes in the seaside resorts, villas and mansions along the beachfront. These days Katong retains a strong sense of heritage and identity, a rich cultural mix and is well known for its unique cuisine and the many restaurants serving Peranakan cuisine and, in particular, a spicy Straits Chinese noodle soup called Katong Laksa.
The Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong is a boutique hotel, which tastefully combines the preserved heritage of the former Joo Chiat Police Station with neighbourhood’s colonial history and the vibrant Peranakan culture. There are art murals in each room depicting the laid-back, communal lifestyle of the neighbourhood, and a pop-up ‘mama stall’, an upscale retail corner artisans’ crafts in the hotel’s pavilion. The ‘mama stall’ is reminiscent of the small convenience stalls often positioned in the housing estates of the 1960s.
Hotel Indigo is designed to reflect the local culture, character and history of its neighbourhood through its design, food & beverage, amenities and services. While providing its guests with a space to relax and recharge, the hotel also offers the opportunity to engage with and experience the rural charm of the Katong district, a food haven and home to a large number of conservation buildings.
With its 131 uniqely design rooms set in a modern multi-storey building integrated with an architecturally significant heritage building, the Hotel Indigo offers amenities such as plush bedding and furnishings, spa-style bathrooms, complimentary Wifi, a 24-hour fitness centre, a business centre and function room to provide convenience and a full range of services to both leisure and business travellers alike. Guests can unwind with a dip in the rooftop infinity pool overlooking the whole of Singapore’s first heritage town as the sun slowly sets behind the Katong skyline.
Located in the former Joo Chiat Police Station is Baba Chews Bar and Eatery, all-day neighbourhood café serves a range of modern and traditional cuisine from the Straits of Malacca and a selection of quality coffees, teas, and international cocktails inspired by local flavours. The restaurant is at level 1, next to main entrance of the hotel offering a welcoming and relaxing environment for the guests.
The hotel is conveniently located in close proximity to malls, the East Coast Park for seafront recreation and business areas including the Singapore Expo, Changi Business Park and Singapore’s financial district. It is a short 15-minute drive from the Singapore Changi Airport.
