Grand Park Orchard – formerly known as Park Hotel Orchard – will be opening its doors in July after an $80 million makeover.
The five-star 308-room hotel at Orchard Road is Park Hotel Group’s flagship property. Room rates are expected to be around $350 per night.
Grand Park Orchard will bring more sparkle to the shopping belt with an eight-storey-tall media wall. It will also add to food and beverage establishments in the area, with all-day restaurant Open House serving pizzas, dim sum, sandwiches, claypot dishes and roast meat; the Champagne Bar serving Veuve Clicquot cocktails; and the Onyx Bar.
Shoppers can also look forward to the opening of Grand Park Orchard’s four-storey retail podium, Knightsbridge.
Park Hotel Group has positioned Knightsbridge as a space for luxury brands, and it will soon reveal the names taking residence.
It said that it has secured pre-commitments for more than 50 per cent of the space so far.
Park Hotel Group director Allen Law said that Grand Park Orchard ‘represents the aspirations of the group as we scale the heights to be the leading hospitality chain in the Asia-Pacific’.
The hotel owner, developer and manager has eight properties across three countries. These include Park Hotel Clarke Quay and Grand Park City Hall in Singapore.
