Home away from home: the Grand Hyatt Singapore
Posted on

It’s wonderful when you find your home away from home. In Tokyo, I prefer the Peninsula. In Singapore, it’s pretty much the Grand Hyatt.
I didn’t use to like this place so much, but when the Ion Orchard mall opened right across from it, the location suddenly became very OK.
Prior to finding this place home, I preferred the Mandarin Orchard for location and the famous overpriced Chatterbox chicken rice, which I love.

I also used to like the Quincy, but the place has gotten old. They really need to renovate.
But all things considered, I love the Grand Hyatt Singapore because of its design.
To further prove my point, last year I saw Tyler Brûlé and the Monocle team here.

I’ve heard a couple of people say the Grand Hyatt rooms and bathrooms suck, but I did not see it at all during this trip or or last year.
The bed is nice and comfy, and the thermostat is really easy to control. I love the convenience of the nightstands with the two shelves.
We didn’t really use the office corner because there were plugs everywhere. We could use the fast Internet while in bed.

This nice chair ended up as my husband’s sabitan (rack) of used clothes because Euroboys like to recycle their clothes 🙂

The TV was not complicated

Sliding doors open up to a marbled bathroom, which is chuva-approved.

Spacious counter sink—a must for me

And a closet that opens from inside and outside the bathroom. No need to run out for pieces of clothing.

The only thing I don’t really like was the food. Room service sucked. But I did enjoy the cereal-crusted KFC with Hainanese chicken rice my hubby bought next door. How convenient! Though I wish I had discovered this earlier on the first day. I could eat this everyday.

Please try when in Singapore.
