Wake up to the best of the UK capital at Pan Pacific London, which is sitting pretty near arterial Liverpool Street. Old-meets-new is usually a cliché, but Pan Pacific’s public plaza connects a breathtaking 43-storey bronze tower with the 144-year-old Devonshire House in one veritable emporium of hospitality. Destination restaurants and popular pubs count among the neighbours – local lures include arty Shoreditch, the Barbican Centre, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Stroll along the River Thames, wine and dine in Hoxton, shop in Spitalfields and head for the green spaces when the sun comes out to play.
Who better to sartorially showcase Pan Pacific London’s fusion of Southeast Asian heritage and British charm than powerhouse global design firm, Yabu Pushelberg? Helmed by George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, the company is famous for its immersive interiors and tactile, sensory spaces. Pan Pacific London models Singaporean sophistication – all shark-sleek angles, jewel hues such as amber and peridot, luxe fabrics, understated style and cutting-edge contemporary architecture – with the eclectic diversity of British design. An emphasis on wellbeing informs the décor, especially on the dedictaed wellness level. Picture peaceful palettes, floral prints, natural wood accents, curving lines and toe-pleasingly plush carpets.
Frankly, my dear, it would be rude not to raise a glass at Pan Pacific London. The elegant Ginger Lily bar houses an irresistible Champagne selection that canters through more than 100 Champagne houses, plus more than 150 rums. A creative cocktail list showcases seasonal libations such as Bourbon Bubbles and a Green Tea and Citrus Highball. Dark and moody interiors and furnishings in rich, boiled-sweet hues up the ante. Over in the Orchid Lounge, liquid refreshments include an impressive tea list showcased by the in-house tea connoisseur, alongside an unrivalled array of English sparkling wines. Design fans will fall for the dapper Devonshire House Bar, masterminded by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
Inspired by Singapore’s world-famous culinary pedigree, Pan Pacific London takes taste buds on holiday. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Straits Kitchen is captained by multi-award-winning executive chef Lorraine Sinclair. The menu champions exclusively grown Asian ingredients, cleverly sourced in the UK with help from acclaimed British producer, Nurtured in Norfolk. Divide your admiration between the vibrant dishes and the panoramic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Sweet teeth will love the cake-centric Patisserie and the sumptuous Orchid Lounge, where executive pastry chef Cherish Finden woos with a power couple of afternoon teas. Pick from the British-style Traditional Delights or Kopi Tiam, a Singaporean offering starring feather-light bao, dim sum and choux.
Health has never mattered more. Should you need proof, check out Pan Pacific London’s boundary-pushing wellness experiences, which sprawl across a whopping 1,083sqm floor. Every inch is put to good use, with perks including a view-toting 18.5m infinity pool (wave at the city’s commuters while you notch up laps), sauna and steam rooms, top-tier treatment rooms, relaxation pods, a mindfulness studio and one of the most high-tech gyms in a hotel in the UK. Genuinely tempting reasons to work up a sweat include TecnoBody equipment, a D-Wall with a digital mirror, and a conditioning gym. Offering a 360° approach to health, Pan Pacific London fuses fitness, nutrition and mindfulness.
Each of the 237 rooms and suites at Pan Pacific London is designed to soothe. In-room yoga mats hint at the hotel’s on-demand virtual yoga sessions, while air-purifying biophilic planting keeps things green and serene. Diptyque bath products, a hot and cold minibar, curated mini-libraries and innovative tech touches – such as the ChiliSleep Ooler Sleep System – add to the glamour. Then there’s the show-stopping Pan Pacific Suite, perched on the cloud-poking 19th floor, which eyeballs the Gherkin and wows with 1,280sqm of space, sparkling interiors, a marble-clad bathroom, private butler service and a host of VIP extras.
