The Pan Pacific Orchard opened its doors and made known its enchanting world of luxury, exuberance, elegance and above all and most importantly sustainability. This magnificent hotel was developed by UOL, its intricate and imaginative design by WOHA Architects. The 23-storey hotel bursts into the middle of the urban landscape, featuring 200% of its area in sublime vegetation.
