Grand Hyatt Singapore Reopening August 2024

Grand Hyatt Singapore Reopening August 2024

20

In September 2022, we saw the Grand Hyatt Singapore close, as the hotel has been undergoing a full renovation. This doesn’t just represent some minor cosmetic refresh, but rather a full reimagining of the property. There’s now a positive update for Hyatt loyalists who are interested in staying at this hotel, as it has once again opened for reservations.

Basics of the renovated Grand Hyatt Singapore

The refreshed Grand Hyatt Singapore is now accepting reservations for stays as of August 1, 2024. Note that this will be a progressive reopening, and it won’t be until some point in 2025 when all room types and public facilities fully reopen. The property initially opened over 50 years ago, in 1971, so it has quite a history. It’s located on Singapore’s Orchard Road, famous for shopping and dining.

The property will have 699 keys, compared to 677 prior to the renovation. Basically everything about the property has been updated, from the guest rooms, to the public areas. Of course if you’re looking for a boutique property, this hotel isn’t for you. However, as far as mega Grand Hyatts go, I’d say this promises to be one of the nicest.

The room product looks great, with entry level rooms starting at 42 square meters (452 square feet). Meanwhile deluxe rooms start at 54 square meters (581 square feet), so are very generously sized.

Interestingly, the standard suites are the same size as the deluxe rooms, but with a different layout, and in a different part of the hotel.

As far as other facilities go, the Grand Hyatt Singapore will have a wellness garden. While the current renderings don’t look terribly realistic, this promises to be pretty cool, if it’s anything like what’s pictured.

As you’d expect in a city like Singapore, the Grand Hyatt will also be a dining destination, with quite the array of food and beverage outlets, ranging from Le Pristine Singapore (from chef Sergio Herman), to Pete’s Place (an Italian restaurant), to StraitsKitchen (a Singaporean restaurant), to Martini Bar (a bar, as the name suggests), and more.

Grand Hyatt Singapore rates & points requirements

Now that the Grand Hyatt Singapore has reopened for bookings, what are cash rates and points requirements like?

For those redeeming points, this will be a Category 5 World of Hyatt property, meaning a free night redemption in a standard room will cost 17,000-23,000 points per night. Meanwhile a free night redemption in a standard suite will cost 29,000-35,000 points per night.

Grand Hyatt Singapore points rates

As far as cash rates go, they currently start at around 430 SGD (~320 USD) per night.

Let me once again emphasize that when the hotel opens in August 2024, not all facilities will initially be open. So if you want the full experience, I’d recommend waiting until 2025 to stay here.

Bottom line

After a closure of nearly two years, the Grand Hyatt Singapore will be reopening in phases as of August 2024. Having stayed at the “old” Grand Hyatt, the renovated property looks like a huge improvement, and I look forward to checking this out. However, I’ll wait until the entire project is complete before staying here, personally.

Anyone plan to stay at the Grand Hyatt Singapore when it reopens?

    I looked at the Grand Hyatt yesterday and the Hyatt site showed it as a Category 5 property with rooms for the nights I'm interested in at 23,000 points per night.

    I'm currently booked at the Andaz and was thinking about switching to save a bit on the price, but...

    Twelve hours later, I looked again, and now it's listed as a Category 6 property and those same nights are now listed at 29,000 points...

    Just an FYI. We'll stay at the Andaz, as the booking is already in place.

Yet, for Hyatt Globalists with their complimentary upgrades or those who use upgrade certificates or point redemptions, the hotel does not need to compromise on size for those ‘free’ (in their viewpoint probably) rooms. They probably made those suite rooms nicer and put it in a different part of the hotel to make those who stay in those rooms feel like it was worth it.

    Yeah yeah yeah very interesting……..what about Brix? That will be of most interest to your readership (if not half of S’pore)

  4. David S Guest

    Yeah @DCS, Brix was something else. The girls were very “friendly.”

    1. DCS Diamond

      (Big grin) - Yup, maybe "too friendly" ;-)

  5. DCS Diamond

    What? No word about "Brix", one of the hotter and trendier nightclubs in S'pore? My bet is that they bring "Brix" back because it was a magnet that attracted quite a bit of business to the hotel...

    The "old" GH S'pore was indeed quite "dated", but I should not complain because something else, in addition to "Brix", that made my stay there in 2015 memorable was that I scored a complimentary suite upgrade as lowly HGP Platinum :-)

    1. JHH Guest

      Brix will be returning, at the same location

  6. Mark Christopher Guest

    Boutique is just a fancy word to overcharge by $50.

  7. JPlat Guest

    I hope they keep the fact that you can have visitors come up to the room without card key or registration at the front desk.
    That was the benefit at the GH Singapore that came ahead of the other places.

    1. Mike Guest

      JPLat - can you please explain?
      Also - if I had to guess, that will no longer be the case. I am pretty confident the elevators will be key operated.

  8. Manny Guest

    So which hotel would have a better location, the Andaz Singapore or the Grand Hyatt Singapore ?

    1. Likes-to-fly Member

      I would say Andaz (convenient MRT, nicer area), but this is up to personal preference.

    2. Baliken Guest

      For a tourist, the intersection of Orchard and Scotts roads, next to the Orchard MRT, and close to Ion, Ngee Ann City and Paragon, can’t really be beat. I vote for the GH’s location over the Andaz’s.

    3. Pete Guest

      If you're a leisure traveler I'd say it depends what you're after - if you seek the Singapore luxury shopping and dining experience, then the GH is the place to be. If you're more interested in proximity to cultural and business attractions, then go for the Andaz. Either way they're only 4 km/2.5 miles apart, so it's not that big a deal.

    4. Many Guest

      Its a 1-1 tie. Anyone want to break the tie.

  9. Andrew Diamond

    I enjoyed their Grand Club - I hope they plan to reopen it, as the staff was really exceptional. I'm a little concerned about the densification of rooms, although I don't think the old bi-level suites were entirely essential (or useful since the first floor and second floor had zero sound isolation.)

    1. Frank B Gold

      They are booking club rooms in August so I would say that's part of the plan.

  10. Euro Gold

    That would explain why I was not able to book anything at the hotel in the previous months. For the dates I will be in Singapore, the value in terms of cpm is only average (20K points or 490 SGD) so I'll keep my current itin as is. Also grabbed a night at the Andaz before the redemption rates went up, would love to hear your thoughts on both properties when you make it to Singapore next.

    Lucky, just a small correction, although the nearest MRT station is indeed Orchard Road station, the Grand Hyatt Singapore is actually located on Scotts Road.

  12. David Diamond

    Looks interesting, will be in Singapore during opening week so will drop in and check it out (without staying).
