Similar to the room, the bathroom was rather cramped, but it I had to describe it in one word, I would say it was splendid. This is definitely a case of “size doesn’t matter”, as the limited space was well-utilised and there was ample room for each facility inside. The interior of the bathroom was nicely adorned with marble slabs, giving it a really luxurious touch.
The sink area was kept simple and clean, with all the necessary amenities placed neatly against the wall. However, what I really liked was the water flow from the tap. The tap was designed to ensure that water flowed out at an angle towards you, making it really easy for your daily facial wash. Although this might not exactly seem to be a very major point, I do believe that all these little conveniences really enhance the overall experience at the hotel.
One unique feature that is bound to please female guests would be the modern vanity mirror with a lighted frame. This feature makes it easy for those who wish to put on some make up and I am sure that guests would only benefit from it.
Guests will have a choice whether to use the shower or the bathtub, or even use them simultaneously since there are located adjacent to each other. For those who have had a long day, it would surely be enticing to have a long warm soak in the tub, which is really clean and well-maintained. For those who prefer otherwise, a rainfall shower awaits you and no matter which option you pick, you are bond to be satisfied. One reason is also due to the ease in controlling the temperature of the water, and there are no sudden irregularities in water temperature. Surely this bolsters the level of luxury that the hotel tries to offer.
However, the bathtub is placed right next to a gigantic window opening up to the bedroom. For those who wish to catch up on a show whilst soaking in the bathtub, this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. However, for guests who are not couples or are shy, there is no need to fret as there is a blind that can be manually lowered. This offers versatility in a way, and guests have the ability to choose what they prefer.
Yet again, nothing is perfect and while I am pleased with the quality of the bathroom, there are still some flaws that I have to mention.
First off would be the small size of the bathroom which I had previously mentioned. Though you will not always feel cramped in the bathroom, the lack of space is clearly noticeable as there is a lack of space to freely move around.
Also, upon further inspection, you will notice the first signs off ageing around the corners of the bathroom. The rubber sealants were pretty badly stained with dirt. Thankfully, this was only contained to certain corners and wasn’t really visible. Another thing would be the unsightly wires poking out of strange places, like the wiring for the lights sticking out awkwardly from he back of the mirror. The untidy hair dryer wire might also cause guests to trip. This is definitely an issue the hotel should look into solving.Â Then again, these flaws are not major ones and there shouldn’t be a problem in solving them.
The bathroom was also well-appointed in terms of toiletries and amenities, and the hotel did well in providing an array of toiletries including those not so commonly found, such as a shoe mitt, loofah and cotton buds.
On top of all these, the hotel even provided a stick-on non-slip mat that I believe is meant to be used for the shower or the bathtub. This way, guests would not have to worry about slipping or falling whilst taking a shower. Such attention to detail clearly reflects a world class service standards demonstrated by Grand Park Orchard.
