Sitting superbly next to Taipei 101, Grand Hyatt Taipei was one of the first modern luxury hotels in the city.

On Thursday night, Asia will see a very different Grand Hyatt Taipei. Not only is the five-star hotel celebrating a glamorous 25th anniversary, the event will be a bubbly toast to the relaunch of a luxurious social center for international jetsetters and local elites.

Superbly located in the bustling Xinyi District, neighboring the second tallest building in the world Taipei 101; Grand Hyatt Taipei has always been the “it” place to be where expats indulge in vibrant choices of restaurants and private members include the city’s most influential and powerful names.

In recent years, Taipei has gone through a monstrous boom with increasing tourists from China, Hong Kong and Singapore. In addition to the expansion of Taipei Metro – making it much easier for travelers to explore the city than ever before – the demand for variations of luxury and design hotels has risen far too fast. The introduction of the W Hotel and Le Meridien (both located merely right around the corner from Grand Hyatt,) the 25 years old champion decided to undergo a sophisticated transformation in an impressive way.

With a six-figure renovation, today’s Grand Hyatt proudly boasts a total of 853 unbelievably chic guestrooms perfectly relaxing for leisure tourists and ultra-convenient for business travelers. Wi-Fi is free, along with triple-line telephones, satellite channels and massive amounts of natural lighting. Work or play? How about sinking in and do absolutely nothing at all.

General Manager Kai Speth tells us:

We’re bringing the glory back to Grand Hyatt. We didn’t change the windows but knocked everything down. This is our way of telling the world: Hello, here we are!

Grand Hyatt has always been a loyal favorite for business and corporate travelers. Today, it’s hoping to attract millennial travelers. One way to do so is by (re-)introducing nine modern and mouthwatering restaurants. Starting with Baguette, a new bakery shop on the lobby floor, whisking travelers right to the flavors of France. Yun Jin is another brand-new culinary delight, infusing flavors of four gastronomic delicacies from Szechuan, Northern China, Zhejian, and Taiwan. An avid traveler himself, chef Chien Hung Wen incorporates his studies of Chinese culinary art into signature dishes such as: abalone braised pork knuckles and tendons and pickled vegetables with poached river sea bass and dried chillies.

While doubling customer satisfaction in one year is a priority, the renovation has been symbolic of a new energy at the Grand Hyatt. Speth and his team’s approach has been forward-thinking and catering to a younger generation. In the sideshow below, we take you on a guided tour of the new Grand Hyatt — and reveal some insider tips and tricks you’re going to indulge in the next time you visit Taipei!
