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 in 2024.
Yes, that marks another delay for this Lion City landmark just off the busy Scotts & Orchard intersection, which originally intended a two-stage reopening stretching across 2023, before pushing this back to a single ‘big bang’ opening by Christmas 2023.
The hotel has now revised its timetable for this exhaustive renovation project yet again, while also reverting to a phased approach to each of its two wings.
According to the Grand Hyatt Singapore website, “The Terrace Wing and its facilities will re-open in Q1 2024 while guestrooms in Grand Wing will open in 2024.”
“Accommodation bookings will be available once the hotel’s reopening date has been confirmed. The hotel is currently accepting enquiries for groups and events for 2024.”
So what can visitors expect to see when the Grand Hyatt Singapore return to the Scotts Road stage?
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.”
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.
