Shopping is a national obsession in Singapore. So why not stay in the heart of the action?
At the Grand Hyatt Singapore, the glitzy stores and mega malls of Singapore’s famous Orchard Road shopping district are just outside its doors.
But past the lobby, all is calm inside.
Grand Hyatt Singapore review of the rooms
The hotel’s two wings have 677 spacious rooms and suites.
Grand Wing rooms are larger (about 580 square feet in size) and feature separate living areas and bedrooms.
We preferred the Terrace Wing though. Cleverly-designed rooms have a small office area bathed in natural daylight from windows on two sides; it overlooks the tropical garden and pool, as well as the city.
The newly-refurbished Terrace Wing rooms sport a fresh contemporary décor. Blonde timber floors and furniture, a grey suede sofa and silver-framed photos of Japanese flowers are a serene mix of aesthetics. The illuminated entertainment center has an inset flat-screen TV and recessed ornamental vase. And we could conveniently access the frosted glass-door closet from both the bathroom and bedroom.
Thoughtful touch: A “Missing Must-Haves” card in each room lists items that will be delivered if forgotten, from baby shampoo to make-up remover.
One of the top 5 star hotels in Singapore
We’re suckers for hotels with great pools.
Shaped like a cross and rimmed with aquamarine pebbles, the hotel’s large rooftop pool is a delight to swim in at the end of the day. Lounge chairs laid out half in the water hold lots of appeal for cooling off while sunbathing.
Grand Club Lounge
As Grand Club guests, we were treated to complimentary drinks and canapes in the Grand Club Lounge between 6:00 and 8:00 pm. With French and New Zealand wines, sushi, hot prawn dumplings, French cheeses and strawberry tarts at our fingertips, we felt no need to go out for dinner.
But as stores stay open late, we could still indulge in an evening stroll and some last-minute shopping…
What to do beyond shopping?
Of course, there are more things to see and do in Singapore beyond shopping.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens are spectacular! (Don’t miss the thousands of beautiful orchids in the National Orchid Garden.)
Little India in Singapore is fascinating too – think colorful street, buildings and great Indian food.
If you stay at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Singapore
A great Orchard Road hotel:
We’ve already touched on the hotel’s Orchard Road location in this Grand Hyatt Singapore review.
Orchard Road is THE place to shop in Singapore (think London’s Oxford Street or Hong Kong’s Nathan Road). Designer clothing, souvenirs, food outlets – you name it, you’ll find it. Some stores even offer butler-style concierge services. On Saturday night, shops stay open until 11:00 pm.
If you’re wondering where to stay in Singapore, you can’t go wrong with the Grand Hyatt.
See the Grand Hyatt Singapore website for rates and to book.

Here’s a good pin :-).
While we were travel media guests of the hotel, this Grand Hyatt Singapore review is completely our own.
