Is finding a really good accommodation in Singapore quite challenging? It’s a yes and a no. Yes, it is challenging if you are looking in the wrong direction, and no it isn’t if you are particularly interested in staying in something tried and tested. This lion city, which I have been calling my second home for more than half a decade now, is full of surprises and it’s no exception that I got surprised when I discovered the Goodwood Park Hotel (Chinese: 良木园酒店) in the heart of Orchard road.

Perched in an amazing six-hectare landscaped garden that could rival that of European styles, this five star heritage hotel along Scotts Road is a welcome surprise. Initially built as a club house for the Teutonic Club serving the expatriate German community in Singapore, the Goodwood Park Hotel is the very first hotel in Singapore to have its own swimming-pool on its premises. What’s even more impressive is that it’s also the very first hotel to have its own air-conditioned wine cellar. When we arrived and checked in, couldn’t help but notice how high-end and Peranakan garden-like the outside areas are. Interesting enough, the tower block of the hotel has been gazetted as a National Monument of Singapore too!


After being built in the 1900s, you’ll be impressed to see how the hotel has transformed to what it is now – with three floors, more than two hundred rooms, and a number of notable restaurants worth visiting: a coffee lounge, L’Espresso, Gordon Grill, Min Jiang, Deli, and the Highland Bar. It’s four wings – Lobby, Mayfair, Tower, and Parklane – are all uniquely designed which makes it indeed an endearing pioneer of the Singapore tourism industry.

Spent the night checked-in at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Orchard to celebrate two things – one is for a birthday celebration, and another is for watching the World Cup. I am a fan of these two events, and the good thing is that our room, being extra spacious and cozy made all the difference in the world, and the view from our hotel room turned the party atmosphere into a relaxing ambiance! We had some snacks and drinks, while quietly cheering for our teams.


Afterwards, we decided to go downstairs to explore the vicinity; although it’s not as modern and as busy as in the other hotels around Orchard area, the overall sense inside this five-star hotel is more of like an aristocratic family gathering place. It should be your go-to choice if you are looking for that good accommodation that will transform your tranquil escapade that’s almost like a bit of a blast from the past, but can also be current enough to enjoy a celebration or two.
