Located right in the heart of Singapore’s shopping belt Orchard Road is the Grand Hyatt Singapore.
The property is actually quite huge, with over 670 rooms and suites, with multiple dining options too.
The lobby area is quite expansive, with large walkways as you navigate your way around the ground floor.
Check-in was a breeze with minimal waiting time, and once my keys were issued I headed straight up to my suite.
This time, I decided to check out Grand Hyatt’s Junior Suite. The suite has a small foyer at and around the main entrance once you step in, where you’ll find a console table and a piece of wall-mounted artwork under a spotlight.
It then opens up to the living room area which I found to be generously sized.
The L-shaped sofa seats 3-4 people comfortably, and its positioned around a white marble coffee table. The side table includes a pocket for literature too. A table lamp also provides some soft ambient lighting for the living room. A flat screen television is positioned across the living room and while off-centre, the viewing angle and distance was alright.
At the other corner of the living room was a large glass work desk, complete with power sockets for your electronic devices. The positioning of the work desk also allows you to view the television screen comfortably.
Here’s another view of the living room from the windows.
Guests can enjoy complimentary tea, as well as access to the in-room minibar.
The bedroom is separated from the living room by a wooden sliding door for privacy. Wood is featured prominently here, with the bed frame, side tables and sides of the feature wall in warm earthy tones. The headboard was covered in soft padded material, great for those who love to read in bed.
Once again, the television here is off-centre, but there were no issues with the viewing distance and angle here.
The bedside console has power sockets and USB charging ports, and light controls all within easy reach.
The bathroom was cladded in dark marble, and while spacious only had a single vanity.
Having a separate bathtub from the shower is always a welcome feature for any suite.
Additional amenities include the usual bathrobes and slippers.
As my suite was situated in the main block, it was quite a walk to the fitness centre and outdoor swimming pool. Thankfully, the property grounds were designed with lots of landscaping in mind, from thundering waterfalls to lush greenery.
You’ll also pass the hotel spa along the way.
The outdoor pool wasn’t very large, so doing laps might be an issue. But absolutely no problem for those who love to simply wade in the pool.
The fitness centre was relatively well equipped, with a fresh supply of drinking water and well stocked with gym towels for your use.
There are several dining options available for guests, such as mezza9 which can be accessed directly from the grand staircase at the hotel lobby.
There’s also Straits Kitchen, which serves up a pretty decent buffet featuring local fare as well. Note that the daily buffet breakfast is also served here. Expect a wide range of options for breakfast, from laksa yong tau fu to nasi lemak. You’ll be spoilt for choice!
My stay at the Grand Hyatt Singapore in the Junior Suite was very pleasant, and everything went well from check-in to check-out. Most importantly, with Orchard Road at your doorstep, the hotel literally grants guests direct access to Singapore’s prime shopping district, a great location to base yourself on your next visit to Singapore.
