Travel: magnificent luxury hotels to discover in 2022
Located just at the start of Orchard Road – Singapore’s answer to Oxford Street – is the Grand Hyatt, a five-star luxury hotel in the heart of the Lion City. With its city center location, huge conference rooms and larger than average London apartment suites, this hotel is the perfect Singapore base for business or pleasure.
The hotel contains several restaurants including its signature mezza9, which is located on the mezzanine level and offers several cuisines, from traditional Chinese dishes to a Japanese sashimi bar. The StraitsKitchen’s breakfast buffet, where guests can opt for a classic fry-up or a regional specialty like laksa or wok-fried carrot cake, is one of the most varied you’ll find.
Sustainability is at the heart of this 677-room hotel; it has an in-house waste management plant that converts 1,000 kg of daily food waste into organic fertilizer, guests receive drinking straws made from sugar cane and it saves 4,000 kg of “ugly” oranges from landfill every year – pressing them to make juice. And as the Grand Hyatt celebrates 50 years since its opening, the hotel plans to introduce several other sustainability innovations to help further minimize its environmental impact.
