Stay of the Week: Pan Pacific Singapore
The latest in luxury features and some of the greatest views of the city are all on offer.
March 23, 2023
In Stay of the Week, we explore some of the world's best and most unique accommodations — giving you a little inspiration for your next trip. In this instalment, we take you to Pan Pacific Singapore, where we are putting up guests who book our Singapore food trip with Chef Nelly Robinson.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL?
This five-star hotel is right in the heart of Singapore, boasting views across Marina Bay, the South China Sea and surrounding city skyline. It's also finishing up its latest renovation, adding in a heap of extra luxe fixtures.
This is a mighty big hotel, with 790 lavish rooms and suites available to guests. You can go for the more modest Deluxe Room — which is still an impressive 38 square metres in size and has sweeping views across either the city or bay.
Alternatively, you can opt for one of the more luxurious suites or studios that have separate living and dining rooms, additional bedrooms and little kitchenettes. There's even the Urban Jungle suite which is made for families. It has a super fun jungle-themed room with an inflatable rocking hippo, a tepee and a treehouse bunk bed that sleeps two kids.
FOOD AND DRINK
As you'd expect in a city known for its food, this opulent hotel boasts a series of spectacular restaurants and bars. There is the fine-dining Cantonese restaurant Hai Tien Lo and the Keyaki Japanese Restaurant which has its own Japanese rooftop garden.
But one of our favourites has to be Edge. Here, you get to feast on a high-end buffet that includes fresh oysters and lobster, roast meats with all the trimmings and a massive selection of local dishes. Quantity and quality combine at this spot.
THE LOCAL AREA
Pan Pacific Singapore is close to most of the city's best bits. Head to the adjoining Marina Market for boutique stores, walk along the nearby Singapore River for more entertaining and dining options or take a quick cab ride to any of the city's other great sites.
Be sure to check out Little India, Chinatown and Arab Street as well as the famous island of Sentosa, if you seek beach clubs and water activities.
The three pools are all great additional features, as is the in-house spa. But the best extras come when guests book a spot on our one-of-a-kind Singapore food tour with Chef Nelly Robinson. Guests will spend three nights at Pan Pacific Singapore, getting complimentary breakfasts and a bonus 15% off dining at the hotel's restaurants.
They'll also visit a series of local restaurants, bars and hawker centres before spending a full day with Chef Nelly Robinson himself. He'll take travellers to some of his favourite dining destinations (a Michelin-starred degustation being one of the highlights) and join them for a special cooking class. No other trip offers up experiences like these.
