Pan Pacific Hotels Group is expecting to complete its full refurbishment of Pan Pacific Perth by mid-late 2024, the group announced on Tuesday.

The AU$50 million project which commenced earlier this year has seen the completion of a number of guest rooms, which have been made available for booking.

Plans for a remodelled porte cochère and elegant lobby will commence in the new year, as well as a redesign of two of the hotel’s popular dining outlets.

The refurbishment, led by Perth-based State of Kin, iis expected to unveil “a new standard of understated luxury”, according to the hotel group.

“This project marks a significant milestone in the hotels history,” said Pan Pacific Perth General Manager, Paul Flett.

“The extensive refurbishment will see our hotel redefine the very essence of graceful luxury, with the guest experience at the forefront of this project. This includes a new welcoming lobby, state of the art upgrades to the convention facilities, as well as offering the bespoke brand experiences and sincere service to ensure a truly memorable stay.”

The project sees a complete refurbishment of all 392 guest rooms and suites and refresh of the 96 Pacific Club rooms and suites, as well as a redesign of the convention level ballrooms and meeting rooms, the entire lobby and porte cochère, and the Pacific Club lounge on level 7.

Architectural and interior design practice FDAT devised the interior plans with locally inspired décor in tribute to Western Australia’s diverse landscapes, and delicate Asian design influences that reflect the global Pan Pacific brand.

Neutral panelling will line the corridors on room floors, with the addition of botanical artwork in lift landings.

The eight spaces on the convention level will be completely renovated including the two large capacity ballrooms and pre-function area. The new look Grand River and Golden Ballrooms will be fitted with new lighting, carpets, and mirrors lining the internal walls, as well as upgraded technology, with audio-visual support from Encore.

The hotel’s revived public spaces and the Pacific Club Lounge will introduce innovative materials including repurposed denim and other textured and recycled materials.
