The Pan Pacific Suzhou officially opened its doors on Monday. The landmark 481-room property located in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China, features traditional Suzhou gardens and ancient Chinese aesthetics fused with modern comforts and luxury.

The hotels opening was graced by acclaimed Chinese painter Ye Fang, who entertained guests and the media with a live calligraphy display. Ye Fang had also, prior to the opening, collaborated with the hotels Hai Tien Lo to reinterpret a Suzhou traditional dish, La Ba porridge which was served on the day. The dish, a symbol of symbol of prosperity and longevity, is enjoyed by locals during the traditional La Ba Festival - a prelude of celebrations for the Chinese New Year.

Respecting the local community and its culture has been one of the cornerstones in Pan Pacifics philosophy, said Jeffrey Ong, General Manager of Pan Pacific Suzhou. This ceremony sets to commence our efforts to establish Pan Pacific Suzhou as a cultural landmark and icon in Suzhou, and China where guests can experience modern comforts in surroundings steeped in traditional Chinese aesthetics. Together with our sister hotel, Pan Pacific Xiamen, we are excited to introduce more guests to China to Pan Pacific and our brand of hospitality.

Pan Pacific Suzhou features a new wing, which houses 99 deluxe rooms and suites and Pan Pacifics exclusive, premier executive club, the Pacific Club where guests will enjoy an unrivalled level of personalised attention and luxury, with butler service and access to the enhanced Pacific Lounge serving complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails.

Guests also have a range of new restaurant and bar options including Pan Pacifics award-winning Cantonese restaurant, Hai Tien Lo and Italian restaurant Avanti Italian Kitchen. The Grand Ballroom, renovated with state-of-the-art audiovisual facilities and due for completion by March 2010, is also ideal for banquet dinners, weddings, private parties or corporate events.
