Pan Pacific Ningbo Welcomes First Guests

Published Date: 28 August 2012

Ningbo, China 28 August, 2012 – The all-new Pan Pacific Ningbo officially opens its doors today. Located in the Eastern New Town of Ningbo, two hours south of Shanghai, the 415-room hotel provide guests with the signature Pan Pacific hospitality experience through its refreshing accommodation, expansive meeting venues and exciting dining options.

Comprising two hotel towers, Pacific Tower and Ocean Tower, Pan Pacific Ningbo offers magnificent, panoramic views of the skyline and the Yongxin River beside the hotel. The hotel is set against a modern architecture with inviting light and space in public areas, while its guestrooms are beautifully furnished with an Oriental touch. 

Situated in the hub of the central business district and beside the Ningbo International Conference and Exhibition Centre, Pan Pacific Ningbo is an excellent meeting and conference location with nine spacious venues - including a 420 sq metre multi-purpose auditorium - offering flexible room configurations, state-of-the-art audio and visual facilities, floor-to-ceiling glass walls. Heightening its profile as the premium Meetings, Conventions and Exhibitions location in Ningbo, Pan Pacific Ningbo boasts a 2,000 sq metre pillar-less ballroom, one of Ningbo’s largest, and the perfect venue for grand weddings, meetings and dinners.

The Pan Pacific brand’s emphasis on culinary distinction extends to Pan Pacific Ningbo’s gastronomic offerings. Promising to set a new dining standard in Ningbo, the brand’s award-winning Cantonese restaurant Hai Tien Lo is just one of six restaurant concepts the hotel features. The hotel’s Hai Tien Lo will add a Ningbonese touch to its cuisine while retaining its signature highlights such as prawn balls tossed in Wasabi mayonnaise and beef filet in sesame sauce. Other tantalising dining options include an Italian restaurant Avanti Culina, the Lobby Lounge and Patisserie where guests can enjoy special Pacific-blend cocktails and freshly baked pastries, as well as Café Pacifica which serves up authentic Asian cuisine. Guests can also look forward to Pan Pacific’s award-winning Japanese restaurant Keyaki serving up fresh, seasonal imports from Japan and its authentically prepared and immaculately presented sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki, robatayaki, sukiyaki and more. 

“The fusion of modern comforts and traditional Oriental charm is what we believe sets Pan Pacific Ningbo apart from other hotels,” said Chris Ong, the hotel’s General Manager.

“The beauty of the Ningbonese culture and its distinct elements are weaved into the architecture, food and service at the hotel. Combined with the Pan Pacific’s brand of dedicated service and refreshing hospitality, Pan Pacific Ningbo delivers an unparalleled guest experience that is the best of both worlds – service, tradition and dedication of the east, and the creativity, innovation and personality of the west. Together with our sister hotels, Pan Pacific Suzhou and Pan Pacific Xiamen, we look forward to winning over more fans in China.”

Business travellers to Ningbo can also look forward to the upcoming opening of Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Ningbo located on the same site as Pan Pacific Ningbo.

Extended stay guests will also enjoy convenient access to Pan Pacific Ningbo’s restaurants, meetings and conference facilities, and well-rounded recreational facilities which include a state-of-the-art fitness centre, outdoor tennis court, squash court, an indoor swimming pool and a rejuvenating spa.
