Biophilia to take centre stage at Parkroyal Collection Kuala Lumpur

by | 14 Nov 2021 | Projects

A spectacular Parkroyal Collection hotel, with 78 sky planters dotted across its façade and roof terrace, will showcase cutting-edge sustainable features when it opens in June 2022.

This exciting scheme promises to show how hotels can combine eco-friendly design with high-end hospitality.

A prominent mixed-use development

Pan Pacific Hotels Group has revealed that the 535-room Parkroyal Collection Kuala Lumpur will launch in June 2022, with the 210-suite Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur following in October. Both properties will occupy a landmark mixed-use complex owned by the hospitality company’s parent UOL Group.

Externally, the Parkroyal Collection hotel’s most striking feature will unquestionably be the 78 sky planters strategically positioned across its façade and roof terrace, home to 13,000 sq ft of trees and plants. The sustainable ethos continues inside with the inclusion of a food-waste digester and an urban farm – plus a ban on single-use plastics – while there’ll also be a holistic wellness floor encompassing a St Gregory Spa, a gym, a fitness studio and a swimming pool.

Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur, meanwhile, aims to offer long-stay guests the high service standards of Pan Pacific in an appealing location.

Cristian Nannucci to take charge

Cristian Nannucci, the newly appointed complex general manager, will head up both Parkroyal Collection Kuala Lumpur and Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur. A 30-year veteran of the hospitality business, he most recently served as general manager of Shangri-La Mactan, Cebu in the Philippines.

Neo Soon Hup, chief operating officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group, said: “As we look towards the gradual recovery of travel on the horizon, Pan Pacific Hotels Group is confident in our pipeline in one of Asia’s key gateway cities, Kuala Lumpur. Parkroyal Collection Kuala Lumpur and Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur will take the level of sustainable and sophisticated hospitality to new heights right in the heart of the city’s business and entertainment district in Bukit Bintang.”
