Singapore has many luxury hotels, but only a handful like the Pan Pacific Singapore offer some of the best views of Marina Bay which is home to the city’s iconic attractions, cutting-edge skyscrapers and heritage buildings.
The 38-storey hotel is also one of three architectural landmark hotels that form the Marina Centre complex which sports the iconic atrium design of legendary American architect John Portman Jr. When the hotel’s atrium was unveiled in 1986, it stood as the highest in Asia. Portman also added internal and external glass capsule bullet lifts scaling all 38 floors for guests to take in spectacular views of the vast atrium and waterfront skyline while riding the lifts.
Whether you’re checking into the 790-room hotel as a couple, with kids in tow, for full-on relaxation and rejuvenation, for a tasty adventure or just to soak up captivating views from on high, the hotel has got you covered for an enjoyable and memorable stay.
We spotlight five ways to live it up at the Pan Pacific Singapore.
