Singapore, 1 June 2023 – Pan Pacific Hotels Group, a member of Singapore-listed UOL Group (UOL), unveils its latest flagship hotel Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore. Developed by UOL, the 23-storey hotel features intricate and imaginative design by WOHA Architects. Arising amidst the cityscape with dramatic terraced greenery occupying over 200% of the hotel’s land area, Pan Pacific Orchard marks the latest development in the green rejuvenation of the Garden City’s famed Orchard Road district, and ushers in Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts’ new era of graceful luxury.

An Icon Designed for Nature
Envisioned by WOHA as a new prototype for high-rise tropical hospitality, Pan Pacific Orchard is one of Singapore’s only luxury hotels designed with the environment in mind, brimming with 14,000sqm of foliage and water features, a high-ceiling open-air lobby and energy-saving features like rainwater collection, solar panel technology and a bio-digester system.
Nature is architecturally celebrated with four high-volume terraced environments: Forest, Beach, Garden and Cloud. Dramatic 120m green columns tower through the terraces, creating a spectacle of thriving flora. Mirrored ceilings reflect each unique landscape, from the sparkling pools of Beach Terrace to the manicured lawns of Garden Terrace, and open-air spaces welcome abundant fresh breeze and natural daylight for exquisite alfresco experiences.
Defined by biophilic design, Pan Pacific Orchard embodies the vision of sustainable hospitality and graceful luxury by Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
