Legendary charm and a tradition of excellence make Goodwood Park Hotel one of the most distinguished heritage hotels in the region.
Perched majestically on a small hill, Goodwood Park Hotel takes pride of place in Singapore’s history as a pioneer in the country’s tourism scene.
Built in 1900, Goodwood Park’s illustrious history began as the Teutonia Club, an exclusive enclave for German expatriates in Singapore. It was converted into a hotel in 1929 and soon garnered a stellar reputation for its exquisite elegance, legendary charm and tradition of excellence. In 1989, the historic Grand Tower of the hotel was gazetted a national monument by the Singapore National Heritage Board – a fitting title for a grand dame.
Today, Goodwood Park is one of the finest, most distinguished heritage hotels in the Asia Pacific. The beautifully designed low-rise building is sited on a large landscaped garden, providing a quiet oasis for guests, even as the bustling Orchard Road – Singapore’s famous shopping street – lies at its doorstep.
Harking back to Singapore’s colonial era, much of the hotel’s original beauty has been faithfully restored and its majestic air artfully accentuated with fluted columns, delicate woodworks, decorative plasterwork, and graceful archways.
The hotel offers 233 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, including those in the recently refurbished Mayfair Wing now flaunting snazzy new features like a customised sliding-top writing desk and ergonomical chair, artistic black-and-white headboard, vibrant bedrunners, flatscreen LED TVs, fuzzy control air-conditioning, and energy-saving LED lights.
Stepping out of the room for some R&R? Take a dip at either of the two outdoor swimming pools, burn some calories at the fitness centre, or book a pampering session at the spa.
Goodwood Park offers a sumptuous spread that is certain to delight epicureans, with five award-winning restaurants, a bar and a deli.
Meat lovers will be spoilt for choice at Gordon Grill, the hotel’s premier fine dining restaurant that has been serving some of the finest steaks and Continental cuisine in Singapore since 1963. Take your pick from the meat trolley, which is wheeled from table to table to present the different choice cuts available including the popular Wagyu Beef Ribeye and Black Angus Fillet. The staff will then expertly slice and weigh each piece of beef in front of diners before it is sent to the kitchen for cooking. Adjoining the restaurant is Highland Bar, where diners can stop by for an aperitif or after-dinner drink.
Catering to Oriental palates, Min Jiang is renowned for serving some of the best Sichuan and Cantonese cuisines in Singapore. In fact, the restaurant has proven so successful that it has spun off two other Min Jiang outlets – one in Rochester Park and another in London, marking the hotel’s first overseas F&B venture.
A cosy café by day and chic lounge by night, L’Espresso is famous for its English Afternoon Tea enjoyed indoors or on the breezy outdoor timber-decked terrace overlooking the pool.
Housed in the Grand Tower wing, the Coffee Lounge is one of the hotel’s most popular and recognisable venues best known for its signature Taiwan Porridge, local fare and local high tea buffet.
At Goodwood Park, you can take a peek into Singapore’s colonial era, as an illustrious tradition of unparalleled hospitality, luxurious accommodation and renowned cuisine make a stay in this hotel
nothing short of unforgettable.
