SINGAPORE – As part of improving their sustainability and branding efforts, Parkroyal Pickering and Marina Mandarin hotels have been renamed under the launch of Pan Pacific Hotels Group Limited’s new brand, Parkroyal Collection Hotels & Resorts. The Parkroyal on Pickering has been renamed as Parkroyal Collection Pickering whereas the former Marina Mandarin is now known as Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay.
The new brand Parkroyal Collection Hotels & Resorts aim to push for a stronger sense of responsibility towards the environment, with eco-friendliness, sustainability and care for overall well-being as its ethos.
New changes are expected to come to The Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay; the hotel will see a new first garden-in-hotel concept to be conceived in Singapore. A new sky bridge will connect guests across the atrium on the fourth level to a forest tree top experience. As for the indoor atrium, it will be transformed into a lush garden with sculptural pavilions illuminating like lanterns in the evening. A 13-metre landscaped vertical wall will be flanked by raised planters, giving viewers a panoramic 180-degree view of a forest.
To encourage eco-friendliness, the hotel will install water filters in guestrooms to discourage the use of plastic bottles and premium bath amenities offered to guests are biodegradable.
The outdoor swimming pool will be fitted with 1,380 fibre optics to transform the pool into a galaxy of twinkling stars. As for the gym amenities, an outdoor shower room will be built with a green wall. For events and dining purposes, the Atrium ballroom will overlook the atrium garden, giving guests a nature outlook while the Peppermint restaurant will be framed by greenhouses to allow guests to ‘dine in nature.’
