Having pulled down the shutters on September 19, the Grand Hyatt Singapore is steadily working towards what promises to be a stunning reveal of the new Grand Hyatt in early 2023.

First to reopen will be the hotel’s Wellness Wing – previously known as the Terrace Wing –  which will be dressed with urban landscaping and what Hyatt describes as “a series of natural immersion gardens (and) lounging day-beds designed into the guestrooms (which) will be upgraded with enhanced soundproofing capabilities for a more restful experience.”

The Grand Wing will follow in towards the end of 2023, under the same name but ”poised as a contemporary and urban wing” according to Hyatt.

The hotel’s signature restaurant Mezza9 will make way for a new ”world-class culinary concept” in collaboration with acclaimed Dutch chef-entrepreneur Sergio Herman, who will be making his Asian debut at the hotel.

On the sustainability front, a food waste management plant will be installed, along with systems for rainwater harvesting and laundry water recycling.

The Grand Hyatt Singapore was one of the city’s original five-star hotels, debuting in 1971 as the Hyatt Regency.

Its location at 10 Scotts Road puts the Grand Hyatt at the busy downtown hub of Orchard Road, where the intersection is framed by rival Marriott, local department store Tangs and the Ion Orchard mega-mall.

And if you’re headed to the Red Dot, don’t miss the city’s newest Michelin-approved eateries, ranging from value-for-money restaurants to hawker centre stalls, and take time out to discover Singapore like a local.

There are a few hotels in that area all built around 40 to 50 years ago and needing refurbishment or replacement.  This includes the Royal Plaza on Scotts and the Voco (previously Hilton) just around the corner in Orchard Road.  

The problem is that a refurbishment can't fix all the issues with things like hotel bathrooms, hotel foyers etc having evolved greatly over the past 40 years.  

I haven't stayed in the Grand Hyatt for a number of years but have stayed in the other 2 mentioned above and it is hard to see how they become competitive short of a complete rebuild.  All they really have going for them currently is a great location.
