Romance At The Pan Pacific London: Hotel Review

The Golden Suite Celebration package is the perfect couple stay in the city

Sometimes a chic London hotel room with a view, a comfy bed and a super-sized breakfast buffet isn’t quite enough. If you’re looking for romance in the city, the Pan Pacific London’s Golden Suite Celebration package adds that extra something special. 

The Golden Suite Celebration Package at Pan Pacific London

Before we delve into the hotel, let’s start with the Pan Pacific London’s priciest package for people in love, shall we? The ‘Golden Suite Celebration’ offers guests the chance to experience an exclusive experience in the Signature Pan Pacific Suite, the best room in the hotel, larger than most mid-size London homes. The package includes an overnight stay with breakfast, butler service (not intrusive, wonderfully friendly), and private access to the infinity pool on the SENSORY Wellbeing Floor. Couples can enjoy the heated pool for an hour in privacy with champagne, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and optional holistic massages in-suite. Yes, a romantic hotel stay can be DIY-ed with a little creativity, but should your budget allow, this Pan Pacific stay is sure to impress the special someone in your life.

The Pan Pacific Suite

Country to town dwellers who split their time between the city for work and the countryside for non-work life may dream of the perfect London pad, floor to ceiling windows revealing 180-degree views of the city taking in The Gherkin across the road down to the Shard across the river. The Signature Pan Pacific Suite is it. Sadly, room rates are equal to or more than an average monthly rent rate in the capital, so a one-night-only visit is the best way to enjoy this really special room. Sorry, rooms, rather, since the 19th-floor suite includes a lounge, dining area, study, and show-stopping marble bathroom. 

The bathroom deserves its own standalone review. Double sink stretching the length of the bathroom set against a floor-to-ceiling window wall, heated marble flooring, black and cream marble bath, enormous walk-in shower and a loo with a view across London. The Diptyque amenities are a lovely finishing touch.

Location

Not everyone will be at the Pan Pacific London for pleasure. A popular base for travellers, if you’re in the city for business The Gherkin is a few minutes’ walk and the Heron Tower is next door. But tourists can also enjoy this city location, just steps away from Liverpool Street Station, with Spitalfields just down the road and Brick Lane the next stop. Borough Market is a short walk across the river and the whole area is packed with restaurant and bar options, whether your budget ranges from entry-level room to Golden Suite Experience. 

EAT   

While on the subject of restaurants, in-hotel dining is a big draw at the Pan Pacific London. The hotel is home to Straits Kitchen, with a modern menu packed with appealing dishes that are executed flawlessly. Highlights include the lobster Panipuri and seared scallop starters, and the Singaporean classic Curry Laksa, soft shell crab and Unami Black Cod mains. The scallop fried rice is unmissable, though you could pass on the desserts in favour of a nightcap: the mixes are amongst the best and most creative in the city. 

THE FINAL WORD

It’s worth blowing the budget for a special occasion for a night in the Pan Pacific London’s show-stopping Signature Suite. The cloud-soft bed, the private pool use, the chocolate-dipped strawberries; they’ll all spark romance. But a morning spent luxuriating in a Diptyque-scented bubble bath, padding around the enormous marble bathroom, barefoot on the heated floor enjoying sunny city views? Now that is the stuff of true love.
