Singapore, 17 December 2012 – Pan Pacific Hotels Group has launched Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Ningbo, its first serviced suites property in China.

This is the third Pan Pacific Serviced Suites in the Group’s portfolio – following Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Orchard in Singapore and Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok.

Located in the Eastern New Town of Ningbo, beside the Ningbo International Conference and Exhibition Centre, the 175-room Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Ningbo shares the same site as the 415-room Pan Pacific Ningbo which opened earlier in August.

Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Ningbo boasts all the unique amenities offered at all Pan Pacific Serviced Suites properties – most notably, a 24-hour Personal Assistant (PA) Service which provides guests and residents with instant connectivity to business and social networks around the city. At the same time, the adjoining hotel towers offer serviced suites residents convenient access to the exciting dining options, rejuvenating spa and expansive meeting facilities at Pan Pacific Ningbo.

“Building upon our award-winning Pan Pacific hotels in Suzhou, Xiamen and Ningbo, we are now delighted to introduce our premium and established extended-stay product to China,” said A. Patrick Imbardelli, President and CEO, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.

Pan Pacific Hotels Group also owns and/or manages two serviced suites under its PARKROYAL brand, namely PARKROYAL Serviced Suites Singapore and PARKROYAL Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur.

Pan Pacific Hotel and Serviced Suites Ningbo marks the Group’s first joint hotel and serviced suites development.

“Moving forward, we will be looking for opportunities to operate our Pan Pacific Serviced Suites and PARKROYAL Serviced Suites in conjunction with hotel products of the same branding that are part of the same development or within a market that already has a hotel with complimentary branding,” said Imbardelli. “This enables us to harness maximum synergies in our operations while enhancing the benefits to our guests and value to our owners.”

Next year, Pan Pacific Hotels Group continues the expansion of its serviced suites portfolio with the launch of Pan Pacific Serviced Suites, Beach Road in Singapore and the debut of the PARKROYAL brand in China with PARKROYAL Serviced Suites, Green City, Shanghai.
