Grand Hyatt Taipei to relaunch following extensive renovations

2 Apr 2015 by Clement Huang

The Grand Hyatt Taipei has enjoyed an illustrious history in Taiwan, having opened as the first international luxury hotel in the capital some 25 years ago.

The property will soon be re-launched following a top-to-toe renovation project that has seen its 853 guestrooms and suites stripped to their fundamentals, redesigned and rebuilt.

From April 23, guests will be treated to “a brand new property”, according to Kai Speth, the hotel’s general manager. “[However], with a 25 year history in this same location, we’re also the most seasoned hotel in the city. We’ve got the best of both worlds.”

Grand executive suite bedroom

Guestrooms range from 33 to 40sqm at the grand deluxe level, and this extends to more than 83sqm for an executive suite. Meanwhile, the new presidential suite commands more than 221sqm in space and offers views of the iconic Taipei 101.

With ample windows and textured walls, the suites evoke the feeling of apartments, while the newly designed bathrooms are clad in marble, and feature muted colours, along with deep-soaking tubs.

Beyond the guestrooms, Grand Hyatt Taipei will also be introducing two completely new restaurants – Yun Jin (Chinese) and The Steakhouse (Western). The former opened for business back in February, while the latter is expected to do the same later this year.

Finally, business travellers will enjoy an all-new experience at the hotel’s Club Lounge. Breakfast will be served on high counters, while the window-side alcoves maintain a certain level of privacy. There is also a new open show kitchen where guests can view their food being cooked.
