Staycations with Park Hotel Group
· 21 October 2019
A stay at these five properties under the Park Hotel Group means you are within a stone’s throw away from a slew of natural attractions, sightseeing spots as well as shopping and dining addresses.
Staycations are an excellent fuss-free way to enjoy the weekends with family, but holing up in the hotel room all day long might not be the best way to maximise your time. With any of the five Park Hotel Group’s properties, you have the chance to explore your own backyard before retiring to your hotel room to enjoy the rest of your stay.
Grand Park Orchard
In need of some serious retail therapy? Check into Grand Park Orchard for a weekend of shopping and relaxation in Singapore’s premier shopping district, and stay in one of the most fashionable
hotels in town. The 308-room property boasts designer interiors, a laidback al fresco bar and a stunning pool. Better yet, opt for the Crystal Club rooms to access privileges like express check-in and check-out, complimentary refreshments, evening cocktails and Champagne. When hunger pangs strike, head to contemporary Cantonese restaurant Mitzo or enjoy bar bites and cocktails at the open-air Bar Canary. 270 Orchard Road. Tel: 6603 8888

shopping enclaves of nearby Raffles City, Suntec City and Millenia Walk, and you’ve got the prime spot to be in to rediscover the bustling city before retiring to your hotel accommodation.
