Checking In: Pan Pacific Singapore

Timeless yet modern, the 760-room property is home to eight exciting F&B concepts, a club lounge with panoramic city views, and more.

The rooms and suites are arranged in a modernist, geometric manner.

The Look

The stark Pan Pacific Singapore might not be eye-catching at first sight, but once you’ve stepped inside, it’s a whole other story. Designed by American neo-futurist architect John Calvin Portman Jr., the 38-floor building features a beautifully sun-lit atrium around which 790 rooms and suites are arranged in a modernist, geometric manner to create a sense of lightness and space. But it’s not all concrete jungle — the Atrium lobby lounge features an eclectic collection of handmade timber seating pods that appear to float over a reflection pool, the result of an S$80 million renovation in 2012. The revitalized hotel is also home to the Pacific Club on Level 38, which offers 360-degree views of the surrounding Marina Bay district and the South China Sea. 

The Pacific Harbour room comes with an en-suite marble bathroom with a soaking tub, as well as a generous workspace with an ergonomic Herman Miller desk chair.

The Rooms

A touch of contemporary style has been injected into the refreshed rooms and suites, but without neglecting the needs of the business traveler. Redesigned by Australian interior design firm CHADA, the rooms feature state-of-the-art in-room technology, elegant furnishings in warm hues, and city skyline views. The Pacific Harbour room comes with an en-suite marble bathroom with a soaking tub, as well as a generous workspace with an ergonomic Herman Miller desk chair.
