This is a haven in the heart of London city…

Located on Liverpool Street, Pan Pacific London opened back in September of this year and was undoubtedly one of the capital’s most highly anticipated hotel openings of 2021. The hotel takes innovation and understated luxury to new heights, fusing together architecture, contemporary design, boundary-pushing wellbeing, leading destination restaurants and bars and a generous helping of Singaporean hospitality.

Found on the doorstep of some of the most world-renowned locations, the hotel is also home to its own inner world. Sitting proudly in the landmark tower at One Bishopsgate Plaza, the hotel is situated near many of the city’s finest attractions, including high-end shopping in Spitalfields, the Barbican cultural hub and the stylish Shoreditch neighbourhood.

Created by design duo Yabu Pushelberg, every element is carefully crafted and tailored to offer one of London’s most complete contemporary and luxury hotel experiences. A unique sanctuary in the middle of the City of London, modern lines and artistic flair run throughout the hotel’s public spaces, whilst guest rooms offer a sense of peace and calm with curved walls and neutral colour palettes; a fusion of Southeast Asian vibrancy and the refined elegance of traditional British design.


A proactive approach to environmental sustainability and wellness can be seen in all of the 237 guest rooms and suites, which offer some of London’s finest accommodation. Rooms have been designed as retreats from the bustling city and feature a lighter colour palette, which gives peace and tranquillity to the 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. Accessories introduce small bursts of colour and organic forms to reinforce the tonal and tranquil nature of each guest room.


Diptyque toiletries, a hot and cold minibar and a curated library of books are just a few of the touches to ensure guests’ comfort. For ultimate wellbeing, an innovative Ooler® ChiliSleepTM Sleep 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.

If you’re looking for something spectacular, we recommend a stay in the signature Pan Pacific Suite, found on the 19th floor, which is the essence of luxury with spectacular views of city landmark, The Gherkin.

Straits Kitchen Restaurant, The Orchid Lounge & Ginger Lily

Led by multi award-winning Executive Chef Lorraine Sinclair and renowned Executive Pastry Chef Cherish Finden, the team work 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. Straits Kitchen is an ode to Southeast Asia, both through design and cuisine, and the floor- to-ceiling glass windows offer guests unparalleled panoramic views of the city.


Perched on the first floor, the stunning Orchid Lounge offers a unique and sumptuous Afternoon Tea, which embraces both Asian flavours and the traditional British tea. The Singaporean-in- spired Kopi Tiam (celebrating bao, dim sum and choux) is divine. Every Afternoon Tea is accompanied by exclusive tea blends from the Rare Tea Company as well as Champagnes and world-renowned English sparkling wines.

Ginger Lily brings the buzz of Singaporean bar culture to the capital and boasts the largest list of by-the-glass bubbles in the City of London (over 200 houses feature) and it’s also home to more than 150 rums!
