The new Pan Pacific London has just opened with a promise to take innovation and understated luxury to new heights, fusing together architecture, contemporary design, boundary-pushing wellbeing, and leading destination restaurants and bars, with sincere Singaporean hospitality to create a lifestyle destination in London.
Located in Liverpool Street, Pan Pacific London sits in the landmark tower at One Bishopsgate Plaza which encapsulates not only a 43-storey bronze tower with the hotel and private Sky Residence apartments, but also the 144-year-old Devonshire House featuring designer shops, a destination restaurant and a contemporary cocktail bar.
The hotel has been created by design duo Yabu Pushelberg, who bring their signature style to the hotel sparked by the fusion of south-east Asian vibrancy and the refined elegance of traditional British design. Their aim is that guest rooms offer a sense of peace and calm with curved walls and neutral colour palettes. Environmental sustainability and wellness can be seen in the 237-guest rooms and suites, including the signature Pan Pacific Suite, perched on the 19th floor, which is the essence of luxury with spectacular views of city landmark, The Gherkin.
Guest rooms have been designed as retreats from the bustling city and feature a lighter colour palette offering peace and tranquillity to private spaces while the omission of 90-degree angles in bedrooms and washrooms creates a gentle embrace where guests can seek rest and comfort. Custom headboards act as personalised art pieces, adding a layer of calm through the depiction of oak, elder, elm and maple trees, while accessories introduce small bursts of colour and organic forms to reinforce the tonal and tranquil nature of each guest room.
Diptyque amenities, a hot and cold minibar, and a curated library of books are just a few of the touches which ensure guests’ comfort. For ultimate wellbeing, an innovative ChiliSleep Ooler Sleep Cooling System to aid better sleep via temperature regulation is available upon request, and rooms come complete with yoga mats and on demand virtual yoga sessions, as well as health-benefiting botanical planting. The five hospitality venues are led by multi award-winning executive chef Lorraine Sinclair and executive pastry chef Cherish Finden.
The team are working closely with British producers, Nurtured in Norfolk, to grow their own high quality Asian ingredients as well as sourcing local produce to help minimise the carbon footprint whilst bringing authentic flavours to the table. Pan Pacific London includes the most technologically advanced and largest ballroom in the area, accommodating up to 400 guests.
The hotel also features an Event Emporium alongside a further nine meeting and events venues. A custom Lasvit chandelier designed by Yabu Pushelberg hangs above the expansive ballroom and is composed of floating crystal orbs creating a starry night’s sky under which any occasion may be celebrated. The hotel has a floor dedicated to holistic wellness, featuring an 18.5m infinity pool and the latest equipment from Tecnobody, along with mindful workshops and sustainable nutrition. Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts comprises 22 premium hotels, resorts and serviced suites (including those under development) in 11 countries across Asia, North America, Oceania and Europe.
The “Pan Pacific” brand provides refreshing Pacific experiences inspired by an invigorating blend of its Pacific Rim locations. Pan Pacific Hotels Group Limited is a subsidiary of Singapore-listed UOL Group Limited, one of Asia’s most established hotel and property companies.
