Pan Pacific Singapore closes this weekend for $60m makeover

Singapore’s Pan Pacific hotel – a long-standing landmark at the Marina Bay end of the city, and a perennial favourite among business travellers – is set for a $60 million make-over.

The extensive renovation program will see the 25 year old hotel close its doors this weekend, from April 15, for a refresh of all 790 rooms.

The Pan Pacific is slated to re-open in August, by which time 150 rooms plus some public facilities will be available to guests.

By the end of September, however, the hotel will be back in full swing with every room, along with all restaurants and the lobby, showing a slick new five-star – maybe even ‘six-star’ – face shaped by multi-award winning Australian interior design firm CHADA.

CHADA's behind some superb work at Westin, Sheraton and Intercontinental hotels to date so we're keen to see the new-look Pan Pacific once they're finished.

The highlight will be the spectacular 360 degree view Pacific Club on Level 38, the hotel’s topmost floor.

“The transformation will enhance our competitive advantage in the Marina Bay vicinity” says Scott Swank, General Manager of Pan Pacific Singapore.
