Arrival/Check-In: I arrived after a long flight from Los Angeles to Singapore via Taipei. This was my first trip to Singapore, and I am delighted to say I cannot wait to go back! After easily collecting my belongings at Changi Airport, I headed to the Pan Pacific, centrally located in the city directly across from the famous Marina Bay Sands. I provided my flight details when I booked the room, and as soon as I arrived, the staff knew who I was and had a friendly host waiting for me at the front who escorted me to my quarters after providing a quick tour. She checked me in inside my guestroom. It was almost a virtual check-in experience instead of going to the front desk. The process, efficient and warm, made a perfect first impression.
Guest Quarters: Walking into my Harbour Studio guestroom, I was immediately blown away by the city view of Marina Bay Sands. As one enters the room, the bathroom sits to the left and includes a separate shower, bathtub and toilet area. The glass separator between the luxurious marble bathroom and bedroom was really chic and modern, but I’m not sure how well-received this is among the general masses who prefer privacy. The rain shower made me feel like I was at a spa, and bathroom speakers allowed me to play my own music.
The comfortable king-sized bed and linens gave me a great night’s sleep my first night in Singapore. The large and functional workspace provided enough plugs for my electronics. The room featured a 32-inch LCD Internet Protocol television and a small kitchen area with coffee, fruits and snacks. The closet was also spacious.
Services/Amenities: I experienced major jet lag the first couple of days and was waking up around 2 a.m., so I squeezed in a workout at the impressive Pan Pacific fitness center. The modern gym has a trendy feel with colored lighting and motivational quotes on the wall. Complimentary bottled water and towels are available. I ventured out to see the pool and St. Gregory Spa next to the fitness center; I wish I could have enjoyed these amenities — next time! Tennis courts, a tailor and business center are available as well.
The Experience: I truly enjoyed my stay at the Pan Pacific. This hotel is a local and original Singaporean property, and that is how it positions itself in the marketplace. Whether you’re visiting Singapore for business or leisure, the Pan Pacific provides 5-star luxury accommodations. The eight restaurants on property are diverse and satisfying, and the architecture and views are breathtaking. I ate breakfast on the top floor of the building, which featured an elaborate buffet and menu selections. The buffet contained a worldly spread that would appeal to all taste buds and to people of all cultures visiting the property.
You cannot beat this location in Singapore. Strategically located near the Central Business District, the Pan Pacific provides convenience for business travelers and plenty of sightseeing, shopping and entertainment options. I highly recommend the Pan Pacific Singapore to anyone looking for an original Singaporean experience.
