[SG] Newly Rebranded Orchard Rendezvous Hotel Unveils

[Media Invite]

19 September 2018 - Orchard Rendezvous Hotel (formally known as Orchard Parade Hotel) has recently completed its refurbishment project, giving the rooms a brand new refreshed look and comfort for all travellers.

Strategically located at the start of Orchard Road, Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is close proximity to MRT, Orchard shopping district and UNESCO World Heritage Site - Singapore Botanic Gardens. Drawing inspirations from neighbouring Botanical Gardens, the botanical theme hotel offers guests a garden-like retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Orchard Rendezvous Hotel will be the second property under the Rendezvous brand in Singapore.

The original hotel building was developed on a plot of old pepper plantation, hence the interiors of the new Orchard Rendezvous Hotel drew inspiration from this historical significance and incorporated elements of the pepper plant within the premises. As you step into the hotel lobby, look up and you will find the pepper leaf chandelier. Not forgetting the pepper plant motif in all the 388 rooms.

To commemorate the rebranding, Far East Hospitality has worked with the Orchid Society of South East Asia (OSSEA) to commission an orchid for Orchard Rendezvouse Hotel - Vanda Orchard Rendezvous. The orchid is a two-toned cross-hybrid of Vanda Pieces of Eight and Vanda Rasri Gold. You can find them on level six - outdoor swimming pool area.

Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is also partnering local art organisation, Sense of Arts, for handmade and personalised pressed orchid products like cards and stationeries which guests can bring home and memorialise their stay.

Hubby and I attended the Media Preview and this is the welcome drink for the night - Verbena Bloom - a light mix of verbena flower tea and orange juice.

We went on a room tour to check out what are conceal beneath the orche facade of the hotel. 

I must applaud for the spacious rooms (from 26 sqm to 68 sqm) Orchard Rendezvous Hotel has to offer. It gives travellers (especially family travellers like us) ample walking space and place to hold our luggage. The modern contemporary classic designed rooms are bright, clean and cozy.

Club Room (Level 15 - 17) - 30sqm

Club Suite - 43sqm

Apart from the bigger rooms, even the toilets are spacious! Apart from the walk-in wardrobe, it also felt like a walk-in bathroom!

Guests who stay in Club Room or Club Suite has access to the Club Lounge with daily breakfast and enjoy cocktails at night.

 Superior Room - 26sqm

Family Room is my personal favourite configuration in the hotel. You feel back at home upon entering the spacious interior which also has a separate TV and dining area! Family with younger children can go for the bunk bed or you can choose to have single beds for larger families. Soft toys and black board in the room adds a soft touch to the space and makes it so welcoming for the little ones.

Family Room with Bunk Bed - 50sqm

The bathroom is equally spacious with separate shower and bathing area. Children will enjoy their bubble bath with the little rubber ducky by the tub!

One Bedroom Deluxe Suite - 57sqm

This room is a gem as it is like an apartment which comes with kitchenette, including a full-size fridge, microwave and coffee/tea-making facilities. suitable for travellers on longer extended stay. Bathroom is extremely spacious and it has separated shower and bathroom areas.
