Orchard Rendezvous Hotel was officially launched by Far East Hospitality in September 2018 after a rebranding from the former Orchard Parade Hotel that has undergone a three-year refurbishment. The 4-star hotel still stays true to its heritage charm with white and black arched windows, elegant cornices and brass finishes, while sporting a brand-new interior inspired by a 🌳 botanical theme.
Do you know that Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is the second property under the Rendezvous brand in Singapore? The first one is Rendezvous Hotel Singapore located in Bras Basah. Other properties under the brand include Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne, Rendezvous Hotel Perth Central and Rendezvous Hotel Sydney Central which will also be refreshed progressively.
We were SO excited to check out the revamped rooms and facilities last weekend. V wants to see the Disney-themed 🎄 Christmas light-up along Orchard Road, while I (obviously) prefer to do some Christmas shopping. And then, we thought: What about a staycation at a hotel in Orchard Road? On the other hand, Edison can’t wait to check-out their family rooms after I (secretly) told him that he might be able to sleep on a bunk bed. Hahah! 😜
If you’re looking for an affordable hotel along Singapore’s main shopping belt, this is definitely THE ONE. I bet no other hotels can beat in terms of price vs. the room size. I’m talking about 50 – 60 sqm here! You shall see it shortly.
The original hotel building was developed on a plot of old pepper plantation. Drawing inspiration from this historical significance, the interiors of the hotel have been refurbished to incorporate elements of the pepper plant. You’ll see pepper plant motif in all 388 rooms of the property.
At first glance, the exterior of the hotel gives a “resort-feel” with its orange-washed walls. But the moment we stepped-in, we were wowed by its beautiful lobby with two mesmerizing pepper leaf-inspired chandeliers at the center. Over at the atrium, there is also a Ficus Benjamina tree with plenty of comfy chairs for guests to relax in a garden-like atmosphere.
