Singapore’s iconic Grand Hyatt hotel to close next month
The Grand Hyatt Singapore closes its shutters on September 19 as it reaches the final stage of a comprehensive renovation.
Other facilities such as the pool, spa and fitness center and several restaurants have also been closed for some time, as has the entire Terrace Wing of the hotel.
The upgrade will now extend to the large main wing, with hoarding in certain public areas, including the lobby featuring works by local artists.
Hyatt expects the full shutdown to last four months, with the hotel reopening in the first quarter of 2023.
The Grand Hyatt Singapore was one of the city’s first five-star hotels, debuting in 1971 as the Hyatt Regency.
Its location at 10 Scotts Road places the Grand Hyatt in bustling downtown Orchard Road, where the intersection is framed by rival Marriott, local department store Tangs, and mega-mall Ion Orchard.
