Pan Pacific Singapore has embarked on the hotel’s biggest transformation in its 25-year history since its opening in 1987.
The extensive SGD$80 million investment for the 790-room property will see guest rooms, restaurants and lobby undergo a major transformation from mid-April. One of the highlights is set to be the spectacular 360-degree view Pacific Club on Level 38, the topmost level of the hotel.
The hotel is now closed and is scheduled to re-open part of its premises and facilities – 150 rooms and public areas on level one – from August 2012. The new Pan Pacific Singapore is expected to be fully operational in September.
“The transformation will enhance our competitive advantage in the Marina Bay vicinity. Pan Pacific Singapore will emerge newly-refreshed and it will spur the momentum of our growth,” said Scott Swank, General Manager of Pan Pacific Singapore.
Wholly-inspired and influenced by guests and associates (staff), the new features and innovative concepts are a result of a robust review of the Pan Pacific brand conducted through in-depth research into their insights.
“The involvement of our guests and associates from start to completion bears testament to our commitment to conceptualise and design enriching experiences relevant to them and their needs. With this transformation, the hotel will embody the qualities — the discreet elegance, personalised and uncomplicated service, and a renewed commitment to quality that guests at Pan Pacific Singapore appreciate,” Swank said.
With multi-award winning Australian interior design firm Chada at the helm, guests can expect the lobby, guest rooms, restaurants and the new Pacific Club to be created with elevated offerings and comfort.
The expertise of Blueplate, a Wilson Associates specialty restaurant and bar design studio, will see the interior design for all the restaurants fully transformed.
“Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to our valued guests and associates for their continued support as we embark on our grand transformation. By September 2012, we look forward to welcoming them back at a new Pan Pacific Singapore that will deliver a refreshing Pacific experience to all,” Swank said.
From April to July, the Pacific Ballroom, the swimming pool, fitness centre, St. Gregory Spa and pool restaurant will be open and accessible via the Pacific Ballroom foyer, driveway and pre-function area. Additionally, patrons can access the Royal Room and Club Mink via the main driveway.
