Pan Pacific Hotels Group announces the expansion of its footprint in Australia with the signing of PARKROYAL Monash Melbourne. Opening in April 2021, the hotel will be part of M-City Monash, the largest mixed-used development dubbed as a “mini city” serving as the new gateway to Melbourne’s South East Growth Corridor. PARKROYAL Monash Melbourne is conveniently situated in the center of the education, medicine, research and science precincts, and is within close proximity to Monash University’s Clayton Campus, Monash Medical Centre and CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation). As part of the M-City development, owned and developed by the Schiavello Group, guests will have access to more than 60 retail offerings, including a cinema, supermarket, dining establishments and specialty stores.
Embracing the evolving lifestyle trend of live-work-play, PARKROYAL Monash Melbourne offers a community-based living concept with its natural day-lit restaurant and bar complementing the adjacent meeting spaces. The hotel offers a desired “third place” for our guests in this new social hub. Accommodation choice of 250 rooms and suites provides a connection to the local culture with earthy textures and tones that are reminiscent of the Australian landscape.
For wellness experiences, guests could enjoy the outdoor swimming pool surrounded by landscaped gardens and the 24-hour fitness centre, managed by Snap Fitness, one of the world’s premier gym operators. From business meetings to seminars, corporate dinners, and wedding, the hotel features a range of meeting and event spaces, including a 375sqm ballroom that seats up to 210 persons.
“M-City is one of the most significant new developments in Victoria. This $800 million development is a vibrant miniature city in itself delivering premium office, residential, retail, entertainment and hotel accommodation. We are excited to partner Pan Pacific Hotels Group and are assured that they will bring the right expertise in hospitality with great synergy with this development.” said Peter Schiavello, Managing Director of Schiavello Group.
“We are honoured to partner Schiavello Group in this prestigious development,” said Choe Peng Sum, Chief Executive Officer, Pan Pacific Hotels Group. “Currently, Pan Pacific Hotels Group has five properties in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. We have over 15 years of market knowledge and are committed to deliver operational excellence and commercial success for the hotel. We look forward to bringing PARKROYAL’s signature warm and approachable service to the leisure and business travellers in this landmark destination.”
The addition of PARKROYAL Monash Melbourne underscores Pan Pacific Hotels Group’s steadfast commitment to strengthen its presence in Australia and grow its footprint in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
