Opening in May 2023, Pan Pacific Orchard will launch a vertical oasis of four towering natural terraces, redefining the cityscape of central Singapore.
SINGAPORE – Pan Pacific Hotels Group, a member of Singapore-listed UOL Group Limited, introduces a new luxury destination hotel in the iconic commercial district of Orchard Road. Opening in May 2023, Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore will be the Group’s next flagship hotel, presenting 347 keys within lush, open-air architecture. Its prime address on Orchard Road places it at the doorstep of Orchard station and shopping malls such as Palais Renaissance, ION Orchard, and Isetan Scotts.
Designed by WOHA Architects, Pan Pacific Orchard embodies luxuriant tropical hospitality that will add a green spectacle to Singapore’s prime shopping belt. It will showcase four high-volume, open-air terraces – Forest, Beach, Garden and Cloud – brimming with more than 7,300sqm of foliage that covers more than 200% of the hotel’s land area. Every guest room affords an inimitable view of either terrace landscape or the cityscape of Singapore.
Marcel NA Holman, General Manager of Pan Pacific Orchard and Vice President of Operations for China, Japan and Indonesia, shared: “Pan Pacific Orchard will bring the new vision of Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts to life, elevating the brand into graceful luxury. With sincere service from the heart, we deliver a brand-new luxurious experience for discerning travellers and transform the landscape of Singapore’s iconic Orchard Road. Our passionate team looks forward to welcoming guests with our sincere and graceful hospitality, creating memorable experiences for all.”
Brand-New Guest Experiences within a Landmark Destination Hotel
Arriving at Pan Pacific Orchard will resemble stepping into a tropical paradise. Guests will be greeted by the verdant Forest Terrace, enveloping the lobby space with rich foliage and cascading water features. A 120m-tall green column towers through the high-volume terrace, creating a spectacle of curling vines and thriving flora that spans the first three storeys of the hotel.
Here, guests can enjoy a breezy check-in amidst the relaxing greenscape, and indulge in afternoon tea at intimate seating spaces resting upon sparkling ponds. The hotel’s signature restaurant perches on the second and third floors of Forest Terrace, affording spectacular vistas of the surrounding sanctuary.
For guests checking into a room between the fifth to tenth storeys, Pan Pacific Orchard’s Beach Terrace will transport them to a balmy resort escape in the middle of the city. An outdoor pool runs across the fifth floor, met by sandy shores, tropical foliage that mimic a seaside getaway, and a pool bar for the ultimate beach holiday experience.
Overhead, a mirrored ceiling extends across the entire terrace, reflecting the rippling cerulean waves and creating the effect of an infinite blue sky. Ten special Beach Club Lofts each offer a private outdoor balcony with direct access to the pool.
Levels 11 to 16 will feature the exquisitely manicured Garden Terrace, featuring an outdoor lawn that stretches beneath the guest rooms. Lined by private cabanas, Garden Terrace offers a serene and picturesque space for customised events or relaxation in shaded comfort.
In this terrace, guests and visitors will discover Pan Pacific Orchard’s specialty destination bar. Club guests can also enjoy a dedicated check-in lobby, as well as a plush Pacific Club Lounge that extends from indoors to outdoors.
At the highest levels, the Cloud Terrace occupies the 18th to 23rd storeys. Here, Pan Pacific Orchard proudly presents the city’s only space for “meeting in the clouds” – a pillarless ballroom on the 18th floor with a sweeping capacity of 420 seats. This distinguished event space will present a dream setting for memorable events and celebrations, accompanied by a breezy vista of the city’s landscape.
Pan Pacific Orchard is BCA Green Mark Platinum-certified for its sustainability features, including renewable solar panel technology, an in-room filtered water system, and a bio-digester system that transforms food waste into cleaning water, driven by the sustainability agenda of Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
