Review: Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
Here are five reasons why you absolutely need to stay at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. Words by Calvin Chong
A favourite among Malaysians, Hong Kong is Asia’s very own “World City” where you can find absolutely anything and everything you want.
It’s no wonder we are constantly jetting off to this harbour city and when staying in Hong Kong, there’s one particular hotel that you must try: Grand Hyatt Hong Kong.
A 5-star luxury hotel located in Wan Chai, right next to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Grand Hyatt is a gem that stands proudly among the sea of luxury hotels in the island.
And here’s five reasons why Grand Hyatt is worth every dollar you spent:
For the most part, almost all luxury hotels in Hong Kong have excellent views in their rooms but at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, the panoramic view is truly something else.
With its unique angled location in Wan Chai, rooms at Grand Hyatt are blessed with a vantage point that showcases a stunning view of both Hong Kong Island’s Central and Tsim Sha Tsui’s skyscrapers.
That is truly what we would call the best of both worlds and with a view like that, in-room dining seems like the perfect idea!
For any hotels we stay at, the key to ultimate bliss is the comfort of the rooms offered and Grand Hyatt is in tip top condition for this criteria.
Whether if it’s the standard Deluxe Room, the Club King Room or Grand Suite, every detail of the space is made decadently for your indulgence.
From the HDMI TV, Nespresso machine and lavish Minibar offerings to its luxurious bedding and mattress and the range of June Jacobs amenities provided, your stay at Grand Hyatt is one to remember.
And not to mention the ease of convenience in connectivity provided by the hotel, where each room is equipped a complimentary smartphone with 4G internet access, which means it can also double as a personal hotspot for your own smartphone!
While we love the hustle bustle of Hong Kong city, a spa retreat for the weekend sounds like a splendid idea too.
And with that in mind, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong also offers the Plateau Terrace rooms inside the spa facility, where you can hide within for a stress-free spa weekend within the privacy of your own room.
That’s right. For the 40-square-metre Plateau Terrace on the 11th floor, you can enjoy in-room spa treatments, instead of joining the rest of the hotel guests in the communal facilities.
With only 10 of these rooms available in this mini resort within the hotel, you’d be guaranteed a relaxing and quiet retreat to rest, relax and rejuvenate.
One of the best ways to judge a hotel’s ratings is definitely from the quality of the cuisine served. After all, our appetite is the window to our hearts.
At Grand Hyatt, you will are definitely spoilt for choice with 10 unique eateries, lounges and restaurantsavailable, ranging from the buffet for breakfast, traditional Chinese cuisine, Steakhouse and even a champagne bar.
Fine dining here is, of course, as decadent as you can hope for, but our most memorable one is definitely the breakfast offerings at Grand Cafe, which comes complimentary to all hotel guests.
Unlike the usual buffet spread you see in most, Grand Cafe offers gourmet choices that will tickle every palate. From healthy organic cuisine to a range of unique egg dishes and classic Chinese dim sum, a meal here is one you wish would never end.
Also, this eatery is a favourite among Hong Kong locals, which further affirms the quality of the food.
For the last part, we have to give two thumbs up to the hotel’s concierge service, which is on top of its gam.Be it requesting for an airport transfer (options varies from Mercedes S-Class to 49-seater luxury coach) or organising daily activities for hotel guests who wish to tour the city for specific reasons, Grand Hyatt gets it all done via its e-Concierge service.
The e-Concierge service is made available to hotel guests upon their confirmed reservations to cater to their whims and needs with a click of a button. Even, setting up a separate hotel reservation for your pets at nearby accomodations is possible (Grand Hyatt only allows guide-dogs to be staying within its rooms).
So, there you have it. More than enough reasons for you to book a stay next time you visit Hong Kong!
The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is located at 1 Harbour Road in Wan Chai district on Hong Kong Island. For more information and to make reservations, you can call +852 2588 1234, email [email protected] or visit their official website www.hongkong.grand.hyatt.com.
