Singapore’s iconic Grand Hyatt hotel to reopen end of 2023

Having pulled down the shutters in September 2022, the Grand Hyatt Singapore is steadily working towards what promises to be a stunning reveal of the new Grand Hyatt towards the end of this year.

That’s more than six months later than previously slated, but rather than the originally planned two-stage reopening stretching across 2023, the Grand Hyatt Singapore now intends to return to the Scotts Road stage in its fully-fledged fully-refurbished form.

A spokesperson for the storied Singapore property, which had long been a landmark just off the busy Scotts & Orchard intersection, tells Executive Traveller the exhaustive renovation project is on track to be completed in Q4.

The Grand Wing will return under the same name but ”poised as a contemporary and urban wing” according to Hyatt, while what was previously known as the Terrace Wing will become the Wellness Wing.

This 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.”

A greener entry awaits for the Grand Hyatt Singapore.

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.

Both the in-hotel Martini Bar and the adjoining basement bar/nightclub Brix will also return.

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 Michelin-approved eateries, ranging from value-for-money restaurants to hawker centre stalls, and take time out to discover Singapore like a local.

Stayed there with my dad during the 2019 GP. Great room, great location. Got woken up at 2am by a sex-worker ringing the wrong doorbell. First and only time anything like that has ever happened to me.
