As far as hotels go, I think I have finally reached the age where I can truly appreciate a good hotel room to go back to at the end of a long day of sightseeing/activities in a foreign country. Sleep is essential, especially when travelling. It is also great to have a nice room to chill out in with friends and loved ones.
I was invited for a night's stay at the Grand Hyatt Singapore and I think that was one of the best hotel stays I have ever experienced. From the front desk when checking in, all the way to when I checked out the next day at 3PM, everything was seamless and enjoyable. I was given a pretty huge Grand Twin room on the 8th floor of the hotel, giving me a lovely view of the pool below. Even though it was a Sunday morning when I woke up, and families were at the pool having their Sunday fun, the rooms were very well insulated and I couldn't hear a thing.
There is just something about marble floors and fluffy bathrobes that make you feel like you're living in a fantasy world, even if it is just for the weekend. I was so grateful to lie in the bathtub and bubble bath my worries away.
The bathroom is incredibly beautiful and I could spend hours in there.
This is the view from my room, which was really nice to wake up to in the morning.
If it's two things you must check out while at Grand Hyatt is their Damai Spa as well as the gym. For a gym junkie like myself, hotel gyms are very important, because I like to get a full workout done even while travelling. Then, after an intense workout, it is such a treat to head to the spa to have my muscles pampered back to full health.
I wasn't allowed to take photos in the gym, but you can kind of see the gym from the open panels in the spa area.
There are plenty of tanning beds for guests to lounge on to catch some rays in the day. This was fully utilised when the weather was good. While the pool area can get crowded, it is big enough that it can accommodate the hotel's guests.
If anything, Grand Hyatt offers a very well-rounded and overall satisfying stay. I would recommend a staycation here or if you're visiting from Malaysia, to choose Grand Hyatt as your choice hotel.
Rates start from $400 per night and you can make a reservation through their website at singapore.grand.hyatt.com.
