Sun, sand and fun at the east coast Le Peranakan Hotel Singapore
Located about 15 minutes drive from Singapores CBD and main entertainment district the charming boutique styled Le Peranakan Hotel sits in a quieter part of town, perfect for those who want some where safe and comfortable to stay, but still close enough to quickly head into town when needed. This particular accommodation has a interesting character as you can plainly see from its unique exterior and interior decor. Built into an old style colonial era building with wide archways, overhanging rooms and swinging widows the hotel definitely has a rustic charm, which will leave guests with a very memorable experience.
Inside the Le Peranakan Hotel visitors may feel like theyve stepped into another world; there is a fusion of old and new combined with a strong oriental design element, with antique styled hard wood furniture, detailed ornate fittings and large arched windows allowing in lots of light. The hotel is relatively small with 65 different accommodation types available, including the standard, superior, deluxe and family styled rooms. Every room comes complete with the usual range of home comforts, such as a 22 inch LCD TV with full cable channels, an in-room safe, a hairdryer, a mini-fridge with drinks, a variable control air-conditioning unit, an IDD telephone service and of course what hotel room would be complete without a wifi internet access.
For those looking to relax within a quiet environment and away from the city then this hotel is actually placed in the ideal location. Just a few kilometers from the hotel is the waters edge and East Coast Park, a popular weekend destination for local Singaporeans because of the clean white sand beaches, water sports and deliciously fresh seafood restaurant options. Adjacent to the East Coast Park is also the areas city center, which may not be as big and exciting as the city CBD, but it does offer a range of good food and entertainment options; sea, sun and good food are all a perfect combination for a good day out.
For those looking to relax after a long day of touring the exciting Singapore city streets there is a roof top retreat area which has been cleverly designed to make guests feel as if they were surrounded by nature with exotic plants, potted trees and other beautiful flowers allowing you to quickly drift off into a dream world while reading a book. Alternatively you can take a long soothing dip in the hotels rooftop Jacuzzi and let the warm water and bubbles massage you into submission. Unfortunately the Le Peranakan doesnt have an on-site restaurant, though the surrounding area is known for its wide selection of food choices from fine dining to sea food restaurants to quick bite fast food joints.
Overall the Le Peranakan Hotel Singapore may suit mid ranged budget travelers looking for a quieter non-city center location that is relatively close to the airport. It does offer relatively reasonable prices, clean comfortable rooms and a charming character; also if you do need to get into town to do shopping or see the sights then simply jump on a bus or catch a taxi.
