The Peranakan Club is the crown jewel of Village Hotel Katong, and rightly so. Just look at it! The first thing that caught our eye was the in-room bathtub – the first of its kind that we’ve ever seen. The room is flooded with natural light and the walls are covered in an intricate Peranakan motif. We sank into the bed the minute we stepped in, and found it mighty hard to even drag ourselves off afterwards!
What stood out besides the in-room bathtub, however, were the elaborate details in the room – the carpet was interwoven with ornate blue and black wavy patterns, and hanging on the wall was a painting done by a seven year old child. We were really impressed by the painting; no way could we have painted anything that comes anywhere near that standard!
If taking long soaks in the bathtub aren’t your thing, the room comes with a standing shower as well that’s accessible through a sliding glass door.
There are Peranakan elements infused into every part of the room, and the toilet is no exception. Just imagine brushing your teeth at that picture-perfect sink; brb, taking mental notes for our future home!
Besides the Peranakan Club, guests can also choose to stay in the Club Room. The only difference between the two is the absence of the in-room bathtub in the latter, which is slightly smaller as well.
Both rooms grant their guests exclusive access to the Peranakan Club Lounge, which serves free-flow evening cocktails from 6-8pm and light snacks/refreshments throughout the day. More about that in the ‘Things to Do’ section!
The Deluxe Katong comes without a bathtub, but the aesthetically pleasing bathroom more than made up for it. We absolutely love the Peranakan motifs that dress up the otherwise usual toilet! The room also came with cute little oriental boxes that doubled up as bedside tables. We found this to be a really novel touch! The Superior Room is the smaller counterpart of the Deluxe Katong, but otherwise offers exactly the same experience.
The Junior Suite is ideal for families, and comes with either a king-sized bed or two big double beds. We were amazed to find that there was even a walk-in wardrobe – what a way to make a staycation at Village Hotel Katong feel just like home! The room was decked out in warm yellow overtones, giving off a welcoming and soothing vibe. We didn’t manage to stay here this time round, but we’ll definitely be back with our families in tow! However, it was the little details around the room that caught our eye – be it the yellow-rimmed chairs or fluorescent light reminiscent of a bird’s nest, the Junior Suite made us feel right at home.
