With travelling plans being postponed due to COVID-19, we are confined to our little city. What a better way to explore our very own city by visiting the attractions and hotels and using the $100 SingaporeRediscover Voucher (SRV).
I have always thought staycation in Singapore is not the most economical decision; with the same amount of money you can buy a plane ticket to a getaway. Like why should I pay so much? I never understand this logic till I planned a staycation for my family a few years ago to celebrate a birthday.
I stayed in Grand Hyatt Singapore’s deluxe room twice last year when we are not allowed to travel. What made me went back twice in a span of two months, you asked?
Firstly, it is the spacious room. The 54 sqm room gives you ample space to walk around and if you are planning a birthday celebration, there is enough space for you to hide! The room has a living area where you can chill and watch the television. If you just want laze in bed while watching television, fret not, there is another television near the bed too. Also, if you are looking forward to soaking yourself in the bath tub and do not have a bath bomb or bubble bath, there is a bath salt for you to enjoy.
Secondly, the location is perfect. It is just a five minutes walk away from Orchard MRT. You are surrounded by numerous shopping centres and the best thing is the hotel is right beside Far East Shopping Centre where it is filled with lots of affordable food.
Thirdly, the breakfast buffet at Straits Kitchen is Halal certified. So that means, I can eat anything and everything without worries. However, there is no buffet settting for the time being due to the pandemic. You will need to scan the QR code available at the table to view the menu and order it. A must try is their Nasi Lemak! The coconut rice is worth the calories. So so worth it. Typing this makes me salivate. Get your Asian and Western fix for breakfast.
Overall, the stay at Grand Hyatt Singapore was a pleasant one even though, during the second visit in December, there was a long queue at the check-in counter. The check-in was a breeze and the friendly staff never fail to smile and answer your queries. Their service was tip top from the time I entered the hotel till I checked-out. The human touch is what makes it more special.
If you are thinking of staying at Grand Hyatt Singapore using your SRV, you can book it via Klook or Traveloka. After checking it on both booking platforms, Klook seems to be a better option. A night stay in their deluxe room for two person only cost $200 and $260 on Fridays. If you add in breakfast, which I highly recommend, there is an additional $60. There are also other packages such as Foodie Staycation where you can dine at their restaurants for afternoon tea and dinner. Foodies, this package is for you!
So, if you are still thinking of a staycation in Singapore, do include Grand Hyatt Singapore in your list!
