Pan Pacific Singapore

I have stayed in Pan Pacific hotels in various cities, and often visit the one in Singapore, but not as an overnight guest there. I show up there from time to time for various functions, and like to go there for high tea.

The Pan Pacific is one of the three hotels connected to the Marina Square shopping centre. On my first visit to Singapore 20 years ago, when I was an exchange student, this was a regular meeting point for me and my host family. It is a noted landmark.

Inside the Pan Pacific, you will find plenty of world class rooms, many with stunning views of downtown Singapore. The standard of service at the hotel is exceptional, and both the facilities and their location are beautiful.

There is a lot of good food available inside the hotel as well. The Hai Tien Lo Cantonese restaurant on the 37th floor offers not only excellent food, but a spectacular view as well. It is always a favorite spot for diners. Other choices include Keyaki Japanese restaurant, Global Kitchen, Rang Mahal, and the Atrium Deli. All offer excellent cuisine, and the sort of service you would expect from Pan Pacific hotels.

Since the time that I first came to Singapore and used the Pan Pac as a landmark from which I could always find my way home, many other shopping centres, hotels, and a huge convention centre have grown up around Marina Square and the three hotels that surround it. For me, though, the Pan Pacific always stands out as a favorite spot.
