Driven by the central theme of ‘Sophistication’ inherent to the philosophy of Club InterContinental, the film stars Takanori Nakamura, internationally acclaimed gastronomic connoisseur and Academy Chair, Japan, of The World’s Best Restaurants Academy. On an exclusive trip to Singapore, Nakamura explored Singapore’s colourful and thriving culinary culture, savouring modern inventive dishes from the city’s finest Michelin star restaurants, as well as appreciating the elegance of traditional craftsmanship and authentic experiences at iconic hawker hotspots.
From Chef Chan Hon Meng’s Michelin-starred flagship restaurant, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, to newly minted Michelin star venues, Odette and Restaurant Andre, the secret to each food artisan’s success tells a story of technical precision, meticulous refinement, personalised ingredient selection and above all, an unwavering quest for excellence.
Launched in Japan, the Middle East, Singapore and Australia, Nakamura’s journey highlights the philosophy of modern sophisticated living that Club InterContinental embodies, with its dedication to exceptional experiences, personalised service and unforgettable details. This was why he was asked to be the ambassador of the debut film as his own rise to fame exemplifies the belief behind the campaign that dedication, passion and craftsmanship lead to the highest levels of sophistication.
Taking the exploration of sophistication a step further, the brand will also introduce “The Psychology of Luxury”, an in-depth survey that seeks to uncover the impact of sophisticated luxury experiences on travellers’ emotional wellness. As part of the survey, guests will answer questions that investigate what makes them happy, confident and secure within a luxury experience, such as dining, service and experience.
