Staycation Review – Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore 新加坡泛太平洋酒店
Staycation is a good way to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, to relax and enjoy quality time together with your loved ones without having to travel overseas. It is an excellent option for parents and children to bond and build memorable memories together over an enjoyable staycation. Finding a good hotel for your staycation is certainly important!
Our Parenting World team recently stayed at the Pan Pacific hotel over the weekend and the hotel is well-known to provide world-class service and five-star luxury accommodation.
Spectacular view taken from Pan Pacific Hotel’s bubble lift
Another interesting highlight of Pan Pacific Hotel is that it is the only place in Singapore with bubble lifts that go very high up in the sky. It is one of the tallest hotels in Singapore giving guest a panoramic view of Marina Bay.
Other bubble lifts like the one at Far East Plaza can only go up to 5th floor. The kids are so excited to take the bubble lifts and look at the stunning view outside.
The hotel is located at the heart of Singapore’s business, entertainment and shopping districts with easy access to a wide array of world-class attractions like Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay and more. It is connected to Marina Square Shopping Mall and a short walk away through a sheltered walkway to Suntec City to fulfill your shopping and entertainment needs.
Hai Tien Lo – Ultimate Weekend Dim Sum Brunch Buffet
Before we go into our hotel room, we can’t wait to check out the award-winning Hai Tien Lo Cantonese restaurant to fill our hungry stomachs!
Hai Tien Lo 海天楼 means literally “Stairway to Heaven” headed by Executive Chef Lai Tong Ping. This well-known Cantonese restaurant will please diners with a wide variety of fine Cantonese cuisines from traditional to dishes with a contemporary twist.
During the weekends, Hai Tien Lo offers the Ultimate Weekend Dim Sum Brunch Buffet with more than 60 dim sum creations and signature a la carte delicacies. Diners can look forward to indulge in exquisite handcrafted delights and even better, it comes with unlimited servings of bubbly and wine to pair your food with!
Our Parenting World highlights some of the delicacies that we have tried:
Double-boiled mini Buddha Jumps Over the Wall
This is a tasty and nourishing soup full of top grade ingredients like Abalone.
Braised Whole Abalone with Pearl Mushroom in Abalone Sauce
The abalone is very tender and well braised in flavourful sauce.
Enjoy a wide range of savoury Cantonese Dim Sum delights like steamed prawn dumplings, steamed pork and prawn dumplings with crab roe, steamed vegetarian dumplings with truffles, deep-fried beancurd skin with prawn paste and silver fish and more!
Delicious range of Assorted Barbecued Appetisers consisting of barbecued crispy pork belly, marinated soya chicken and barbecued roasted duck. There are more variety in the menu like barbecued sliced honey-glazed pork, deep-fried crispy fish skin with lemon butter sauce and more that you can choose from.
After a hearty meal, enjoy refreshing and yummy desserts Traditional Chinese Dessert, Chef’s Fruit Pudding, Seasonal Fresh Fruits and Western Cakes.
Hai Tien Lo Restaurant was previously located at the 37th floor of the Pan Pacific Hotel and in 2012, the hotel underwent a major renovation and the award winning Chinese restaurant has moved to level 3.
If you are in the hotel during weekend, you should not miss having lunch at Hai Tien Lo. The weekend dim sum brunch is actually an ala-carte buffet where you could order as many servings as you wish for most of the items on the menu.
When we were there, the dim sum brunch was very popular with many families; many of the guests also came with their grandparents too. The service is good and prompt, the ordered dishes arrived fairly quickly. Overall we rated this as one of the best ala-carte dim sum buffet lunch that we had tried.
We simply enjoyed the delicious food at Hai Tien Lo, besides the food, diners can enjoy great ambience and impeccable service!
