Pan Pacific Hotels Group is taking sustainability to new heights with the launch of a new sustainable hotel brand, Parkroyal Collection Hotels & Resorts.
The brand carries a strong sense of environmental responsibility and champions eco-friendly practices and sustainable architecture and design.
Parkroyal on Pickering, Singapore’s famed hotel-in-a-garden, is the first hotel under the new brand and has been renamed Parkroyal Collection Pickering.
The former Marina Mandarin in Singapore has also been renamed and will be transformed into a green hotel under the new name Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay.
“Parkroyal Collection is created for those with a sense of purpose and responsibility at heart,” said Pan Pacific Hotels Group CEO Choe Peng Sum.
“It demonstrates that sustainability and modern lifestyle can co-exist through conscious design and efforts. The brand adopts a long-term view of care and guardianship towards our environment and community.”
The 575-room Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay will undergo more than $48 million worth of renovation works to transform the classic property into a “garden in a hotel”.
The hotel has already unveiled a soaring 13-metre high green landscaped wall, greeting guests at its entrance.
Renovations are expected to be carried out in phases and completed in the first quarter of 2021. This will include the transformation of AquaMarine into a new halal concept restaurant, Peppermint, featuring open kitchens and greenhouse-inspired private dining areas, as well as the renovation of more than 1800 square metres of function spaces.
All 575 guestrooms in the hotel will also be renovated.
