UOL Group Limited (UOL) and hotel subsidiaryPan Pacific Hotels Group Limited (PPHG) are taking sustainable hospitality to the next level with the launch of PPHG’s new brand, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Hotels & Resorts.
The new brand, PARKROYAL COLLECTION, carries a strong sense of responsibility towards the environment and self with eco-friendliness, sustainability and care for overall well-being as its brand ethos. The brand also celebrates icons of architecture and design.
PARKROYAL on Pickering, Singapore’s first hotel-in-a-garden and the World’s Leading Green City Hotel, has been renamed PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering. The iconic design, signature eco-friendliness and sustainability practices of the hotel make it a natural fit for the PARKROYAL COLLECTION brand.
Joining this well-loved hotel is the former Marina Mandarin by UOL subsidiary United Industrial Corporation Limited. The Group will be transforming this classic into an indoor oasis of a garden-in-a-hotel as it is rebranded to PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay. Seamlessly integrating design and nature, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay will bear the new brand’s iconic design, eco-friendly practices, and focus on well-being.
“As a developer, we are keenly aware of the environmental challenges and we believe everyone can do their part to contribute to sustainability and our environment. The launch of PARKROYAL COLLECTION brand marks an important milestone in our PPHG’s journey. This launch is exciting and timely because we are building on what PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering has achieved. We are now taking another step forward with PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay to further capitalise on sustainability into a growth opportunity,” said Mr Liam Wee Sin, Group Chief Executive, UOL.
“PARKROYAL COLLECTION is created for those with a sense of purpose and responsibility at heart. It demonstrates that sustainability and modern lifestyle can co-exist through conscious design and efforts. The brand adopts a long-term view of care and guardianship towards our environment and community,” said Mr Choe Peng Sum, Chief Executive Officer, PPHG.
Designed by renowned architect WOHA, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering pioneered a unique hotel-in-a-garden concept with over 15,000 square metres of greenery, blending visually compelling vertical gardens with an awe-inspiring green-blue façade. It is a remarkable architectural icon in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, with numerous awards in its bag including being named one of 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years by The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).
PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering is the first hotel with zero-energy skygardens. These are powered by a gravity-driven irrigation from a rainwater harvesting system and solar energy. Light and motion sensors in the rooms help conserve energy. The hotel continues to be a leader in sustainable hospitality, consistently named the “World’s Leading Green City Hotel” and “Asia’s Leading Green City Hotel” at the World Travel Awards.
Modern life can be stressful, and more are adopting a philosophy of well-being, not only towards the environment but also as part of their lifestyle. All year-round, the hotel offers guests a dedicated wellness experience, from locally-sourced and organic plant-based dining options, its own herb garden, to green meetings and weddings.
As a brand, PARKROYAL COLLECTION’s integration of iconic spaces with sustainable elements delivers an elevated sense of well-being— creating an enhanced guest experience that is exclusive to the brand.
