SINGAPORE, 6 August 2021: Following the SGD45-million overhaul, Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay, owned by Pan Pacific Hotels Group, has completed a remake that positions it as Singapore’s first ‘Garden-in-a-Hotel’.

The remake highlights the hotel’s skylit atrium that claims
to be the largest in Southeast Asia, while the property houses more than 2,400
plants, trees, shrubs and ground cover from more than 60 varieties of flora.
The building’s iconic structure was preserved during the
nine-month-long transformation, which should prevent more than 51,300 tonnes of
carbon dioxide from being produced during construction – equivalent to cutting
down 8.7 million trees or destroying an area larger than all of the nature
reserves in Singapore.
An Urban Farm has also been added with over 60 varieties of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, which form the backbone of the farm-to-table concept at the hotel’s restaurants, bars and spa. Room rates start from SGD228++ per person.
