I guess I'm slightly biased because we had our wedding here. The whole experience was pleasant and memorable so this review will be about Hyatt's wedding package. Our Sales Manager Mandy was really nice at the start but towards the end she was sounding quite annoyed. Maybe because I was so paranoid and kept stressing out and asking her questions, so I can't entirely blame her! Opps. Planning for the wedding can be quite testing at times.
The wedding package came with most of the essentials such as greeting cards, alcohol and two nights of accommodation. What I liked was we could redeem the nights anytime for their junior suite. Some couples opt to give this room to their helpers. But we did not go through the whole gate crashing thing and found the room big enough. So we opted to use just one that day and use the other instead for our anniversary the next year!
The greeting cards were a bit too old fashioned for our liking so we opted to get our own. We could choose between two to three wedding gifts too, and had complimentary alcohol up to a certain amount with corkage waived - which was a big favour. I liked that the package came with a wedding checklist which proved to be a really helpful guide because... not many couples do this before haha.
During our complimentary food tasting session, we could invite 10 guests and was surprised at how good the food tasted. I don't think we had much power changing the menu though, so I am unsure of what purpose this served other than giving us a taste of what to expect. Although they said we could change some items, it required top ups here and there. Oh yea, we got to sample the flower decorations and lightings on that day as well.
On the night itself, we had specially prepared treats from their Mezza9 cafe. The event went really smoothly and my grandparents whom we requested special treatment, were given just that. My auntie was especially pleased with that. After it was all over, they even helped cater some left over food to our room in case we did not have our fill. I also remember having to count ang pows later that night so I could pay the outstanding balance in cash the day after. Oh man!!!
Overall it was about $1,500 per table. In terms of food quality, I definitely rate Hyatt and even Orchard Hotel where I recently attended my friends wedding way above places like Raffles Hotel (Huge disappointment) and Four Seasons. In terms of prestige, well these are obviously a class lower but the ambiance is just as good and the pricing is much more worth it. A good trade off imo and I would recommend people to having their wedding here if they want their guests to have good food. Its location is also amazing right in the middle of Orchard Rd.
Good for two
Spacious for two, perhaps, but probably not ideal if you’re holding a large scale sleepover—not that it’s actually allowed. While the originally provided beds are indeed comfortable, the extra roll-on bed isn’t anything close. Not to mention that you wouldn’t wish to get out of the toilet. Both a bathtub and a shower stall are provided, but I readily admit to preferring their shower. Maybe it’s just me, but I adore their overhead rainshower—it’s large enough to render a feeling of you being in a heavy downpour, and powerful enough so you feel the water massaging your scalp.
But you could most definitely paint the town red, seeing that this is about as close as you can live to the Orchard shopping belt. You can even make a trip back for an afternoon nap before resuming your shopping rampage!
