Right in the heart of the Orchard Road Precinct, Singapore’s shopping and entertainment district, we think the Grand Hyatt Singapore is perfectly located if you’re vegan and looking for a luxury hotel within easy reach of everything that Singapore has to offer. Here’s why…
A Grand Club Room will not only be a well needed escape from the hustle and bustle outside on the street (and there is a lot of it), but it also provides access to the exclusive Grand Club Lounge (read on for the great vegan benefits this offers).
There’s a full range of complimentary fitness classes including Pilates, Yoga, Capoeira and Muay Thai (we tried the yoga and were impressed with the quality of teaching). Plus a 24 hour gym and a gorgeous pool, perfect for relaxing.
The Vegan Food:
There was plenty of vegan food available too, which is an imporant requirement for us as vegan travellers. Breakfast was served in StraitsKitchen, a buffet restaurant that serves local and Western breakfast options.
We loved the fresh juice bar where we practiced our mixology skills and created our own tasty juices.
Coffee lovers will be happy to see that getting a soya milk cappuccino at the Grand Hyatt Singapore was no problem.
As we’re always happy to try local foods, we headed to the congee (rice porridge) station where there was a great choice of vegan condiments to customise our dish. We love starting the day with this simple, traditional rice dish.
There was also a salad bar and selection of nuts and seeds so we were able to create our own healthy start to the day.
In the evening, the StraitsKitchen prepare more local cuisine and they were happy to adjust some of them to make a few vegan dishes for us.
And we were spoilt for choice with the ‘Nyona Cusine’ desserts like ‘Ondeh-Ondeh’ and ‘Burbur Hitam’, as well as being able to indulge in mango or lychee and lime sorbets.
The other signature restaurant, Mezza9, prides itself on having 9 different cuisines to choose from. After our visit we think they can add another to the list, having catered exceptionally well for us with a special vegan menu (read about our amazing vegan lunch with them here).
The Vegan Essentials:
Non-feather pillows were available in our room already, so there was no need to ask for a pillow change.
Bathroom amenities were from the June Jacobs Spa Collection, which are also used in the spa. Staff called the suppliers and informed us that the products are all organic, contain plant-based ingredients and are not tested on animals which great news.
We also followed this up with the June Jacobs team ourselves who say that the “June Jacobs Spa Collection is 100% animal cruelty free” and confirmed their use of only plant-based products.
Not only were the products lovely to use but we’re more than impressed to see them used throughout the hotel. Well done Grand Hyatt Singapore!
The Vegan Food Quest Verdict:
Check-in here if you’re looking for a vegan friendly luxury hotel in the busy Orchard Road area of Singapore.
Check out the complimentary yoga or fitness classes in between relaxing in luxury and eating vegan food from around the globe.
Use the lovely vegan bathroom amenities or even indulge in a spa treatment and be safe in the knowledge that it’s all 100% vegan and cruelty free.
We were guests of Grand Hyatt Singapore but please rest assured that their generosity in hosting us didn’t influence our views.
