Singapore’s Grand Hyatt Hotel has embarked on a two-year renovation project that will include a five-storey cascading waterfall and new nature-centred wellness spaces for guests.

Located on Scott’s Road, just off the prestigious Orchard Road area of Singapore, the existing heritage property, built in 1971, is a well-known and established destination for business travellers and the local community alike.

In celebration of Singapore’s Grand Hyatt Hotel’s 50th anniversary, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts is working with award-winning landscape architecture practice Grant Associates, known for its pioneering work on Funan Mall, Sentosa and Gardens by the Bay. The sizeable renovation will consist of infrastructural and design upgrades alongside remodelling of the hotel’s guest rooms, selected restaurants, Damai Spa & Fitness Centre and wellness areas.

Once completed, The Terrace Wing will be relaunched as the Wellness Wing of Grand Hyatt Singapore, with brand new spaces designed by NAO Taniyama Associates and Strickland and urban landscaping designed by Grant Associates.

At the centre of the Grand Hyatt Hotel’s new design will be a five-storey cascading garden and waterfall feature, with outdoor event venues and an outdoor fitness area extension also planned to the new Damai Spa & Fitness Centre.

The new design for Singapore’s Grand Hyatt Hotel rethinks the existing landscape to create a series of exciting new nature-centric wellness gardens, with planting carefully selected to promote playful engagement with inspiring biodiversity. It is anticipated that this striking landscape and nature-led design approach will play an integral role in the hotel’s evolved identity. The wellbeing of humans is intricately connected to the wellbeing of our planet and its ecology, and as we begin to emerge from the pandemic, we firmly believe that human wellbeing will remain a high priority for all. Connecting people and nature through purposeful and impactful urban landscaping will lead to meaningful guest experiences that directly address the dual global challenges of the climate emergency and biodiversity extinction.
