Pan Pacific Perth has now unveiled its sleek new Premier Rooms following a multi-million dollar guest room refresh which saw 124 rooms and eight suites remodeled.
Designed in collaboration with international design company, HASSELL, the modern, enhanced guestrooms cater to the needs of modern travellers, creating a serene retreat in the heart of Perth CBD.
“Aligned with the Pan Pacific brand identity, the design has contemporary aesthetic and provides an engaging experience for discerning, seasoned world travellers who have learned to appreciate true quality in their hotel experiences,” explains Susan Standring, Principle of HASSELL.
Each redesigned room is fitted with guest-centric and functional enhancements, including a thoughtfully-appointed workspace to cater to the needs of the hotel’s corporate travellers.
Incorporating the latest technology was an important element of the refurbishment programme, and LED interactive TVs and iPhone docking stations now provide guests with an enriched level of comfort and convenience. Additionally, the Premier rooms – along with all other guest rooms and public areas throughout the hotel – have been equipped with enhanced connectivity to the internet to allow for increased quality and reliability.
The luxurious marble bathrooms, meanwhile, have been updated with new lighting facilities, designer fittings and amenities.
“The results of the guest room refurbishment have exceeded expectations and truly delivered a sophisticated, modern oasis for our corporate and leisure travellers,” says Craig Bond, area general manager, Oceania at Pan Pacific Hotels Group. “Setting the tone and expectation for luxury accommodation, our guests are inspired to feel a sense of comfort and belonging from the moment they enter, provide a ‘home away from home’ every time they stay with us.”
Guided by the strengths and design aesthetic of the award-winning Pan Pacific brand internationally, the transformed guest rooms within Pan Pacific Perth feature a welcoming colour palette of rich greys and warm gold hues, inspired by the diverse geographical locations on the Pacific Rim. The material selection within the new rooms is soft, sensory and luxurious, enhanced by the simplicity of natural elements such as timber and stone.
Pan Pacific Perth and HASSEL collectively have created a design which brings together the sophistication of contemporary Asia and the Pacific region with the rugged textures and vastness of the Western Australian landscape, creating a distinct sense of place. Interior architectural elements such as the luminous sculptural lighting will enhance guests’ enjoyment of the hotel’s soothing sensory environment as they pass through the hotel.
In addition to the guest room reinvigoration, Pan Pacific Perth has placed emphasis on the guest arrival experience, with a refurbishment of the hotel lobby now underway. The refurbishment plans will see the lobby transformed into a modern space, with an upgraded layout and furnishings, to enable a welcoming, spacious, and engaging atmosphere.
“Warmth and freshness are evocative of a Pacific welcome and the design of the reception area evokes both these senses,” adds Susan of HASSELL. “The new reception connects areas within the ground plan and visual way finding is simplified through the provision of unobstructed views of reception and the concierge desk immediately upon entry. Lantern providing illumination above the reception pods are a subtle reference to the hotel’s Asian links, and highlight the reception area’s distinct personality.”
