As always, we are pleased to see new brands joining The Hotelier Awards each year as we continue to grow and expand the platform. In our fifth edition, we were proud to receive first-time applications from the Pan Pacific Hotels Group. PPHG is a wholly-owned hotel subsidiary of Singapore-listed UOL Group Limited, one of Asia’s most established hotel and property companies with an outstanding portfolio of investment and development properties. Based in Singapore, Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and/or manages 40 hotels, resorts and serviced suites with more than 12,000 rooms including those under development in Asia, Oceania, North America and Europe. The Group comprises two acclaimed brands: “Pan Pacific” and PARKROYAL. “Pan Pacific” is a leading brand in Asia and the Pacific Rim with hotels offering premium accommodation and services. We look forward to welcoming all our past as well as new brands back to the competition next year and wish our applicants the best of luck for the upcoming finalist announcement.
