Pan Pacific Hotels Group will double its serviced suites portfolio by 2023, with new openings in key gateway cities such as Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Nairobi.
Its developments are under Singapore-listed parent company UOL Group Limited, with the group’s latest expansion wave aimed at increasing its global development portfolio by 50%, adding more than 4,000 keys by 2023.
Next year’s openings will begin with Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Nairobi in Kenya, the firm’s first foray into Africa.
Located in the affluent Westlands business district, the 26-storey site occupies one tower in the gated complex of Global Trade Centre (GTC) Nairobi. It will offer 128 luxury keys comprising one- and two-bedroom suites as well as penthouses.
Facilities comprise a residents’ lounge, a meeting room and gym, a wine and cigar lounge, as well as access to a multi-media room, an outdoor pool, a children’s outdoor playground and manicured lawns. Residents can also access an upmarket shopping mall and food courts within the complex.
Next up, Parkroyal Serviced Suites Hanoi will open in early 2023, bringing 122 keys to the banks of West Lake, the Vietnamese capital’s largest freshwater lake.
Every suite will offer modern amenities including a kitchenette, washer and dryer. The aparthotel will also feature a rooftop restaurant and bar, multi-function spaces, fitness centre and wellness facilities including a swimming pool.
Come July 2023, Parkroyal Serviced Suites Jakarta will plant Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s flag in Indonesia within the Thamrin Nine integrated complex.
Offering 180 skyline suites alongside a range of facilities such as a grand ballroom, fitness centre and a children’s pool, the property will be poised to welcome residents beyond business travel, catering also to long-stay families and leisure travellers.
The site will be the first of the group’s triple-property launch in Jakarta. It will be located within the same tower as sister properties Pan Pacific Jakarta and Parkroyal Jakarta, opening in November 2023 and June 2024 respectively.
Extended stay strength
The upcoming developments are in addition to recent openings including the 194-key Parkroyal Suites Bangkok in Thailand and Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur, adding 210 rooms to the Malaysian capital.
Choe Peng Sum, CEO, Pan Pacific Hotels Group, commented: “The extended-stay segment has continued to bring us strong performance, even more so in the last two years. We foresee that this market will continue to grow as demand increases for corporate long-stay and relocation in regional business hubs. Our expansion secures our position in key gateway cities and prime locations around the world, giving us the edge to capture the burgeoning long-stay demand in developing markets and key business hubs.”
