Pan Pacific Hotels Group announced yesterday that its first Pan Pacific hotel in London will debut in 2020, while Singapore’s Pan Pacific Orchard will be relaunched in 2021.
Pan Pacific London will feature 237 keys in the heart of London’s financial district at One Bishopgate Plaza, a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street station. With this flagship opening in London, Pan Pacific Hotels Group will join a select handful of Asia-based hotel companies to set foot in the Europe luxury hotel space.
Elsewhere, the Group announced that it will once again collaborate with WOHA, the award-winning firm behind PARKROYAL on Pickering, for Pan Pacific Orchard. The relaunched hotel will feature three levels of experiential sky gardens, with foliage that cover three times the total land area. Located along Orchard Road, Singapore’s premier shopping district, Pan Pacific Orchard will also be the Group’s very first zero-waste hotel, complete with rainwater harvesting system, a recyclable water system, as well as a compactor that transforms food waste into compost.
Cinn Tan, chief sales & marketing officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group, said, “We are defined by our core values of sincerity and integrity, and are committed to caring for the environment and operating in a sustainable manner across our portfolio of 40 hotels, resorts and serviced suites globally. We’re proud to be leading the way in sustainable hospitality with jewels such as PARKROYAL on Pickering, the ‘World’s Leading Green City Hotel’, and will up the ante with the launch of Pan Pacific Orchard, our first zero-waste hotel, in 2021.
“Pan Pacific Hotels Group is deeply invested in the cause for sustainability and we have plans to expand our footprint of experiential green hotels, each one to surprise and delight our guests. With their unique eco-architecture, our green jewels will redefine not just the landscape they are in, but the very concept of sustainable hospitality”.
