Chic in the City

Have you ever had an overnight stay in one of the seasoned hotels in the Malate Area?  Well, this author was recently invited for an overnight stay at the Pan Pacific Hotel to check out the newly renovated rooms.  Having stayed there a couple of times before, the rooms now are quite impressive comparatively and personally rates high on the style meter.  As one enters the room, you immediately get this wonderful bright feeling of lightness.  The spacious and well-lit contemporary setting gives an impression of modernism accentuated with hints of Filipiniana.  Crisp ivory painted walls fused with wood create a clean and sleek ambiance highlighted with modern furnishings.  Nothing too fancy and busy to the eye, one can't help notice the luxury of space which most hotels in the city don't have.  Chic beddings are of the finest materials luxuriously set with a high thread count anyone would dream of. A major plus is the majestic panoramic view of the city or the sea one gets to enjoy most specially in the evening. Overall the new look is all about relaxed style and convenience at its finest. Five star hotel living is never complete without the exceptional specials and Pan Pacific Hotel prides itself with an impeccable 24 hour butler service unmatched by their contemporaries. The perfect weekend getaway treat and escape one must-try without getting out of the city.

Lap of luxury.  Spacious rooms with style-setting fusion of traditional and contemporary.

And for the perfect relaxation, one can soak in the tub for hours watching tv, listening to music or simply enjoying a panoramic view of the cityscape.

Pillow comfort. No need to count sheep, choose from an array of pillow types
to suit your needs for the ultimate trip to Never Never land.
With the new renovated rooms, we decided to shoot a fashion editorial for Luxe Magazine featuring designer retail on Asian ubermodel Jenny Rockett who was going to leave the next day for Beijing en route to Paris. It was the perfect setting for an all glammed up yet understated look of luxe. Pan Pacific Hotel treated the team like kings with 5-star pampering.  We had an overflowing coffee and tea station plus endless pastries during the entire shoot plus dinner after.
