Located in the vibrant and scenic Marina Bay area, Pan Pacific Singapore is a leading Five Star hotel that was awarded the World's Leading Business Hotel at the World Travel Awards 2007.

From the moment a guest arrives at the hotel, they are given the best personalised service from a welcoming and professional staff. Every wish is looked into, every detail taken care of.

My job responsibilities include overseeing the hotel operations including front office, food and beverage, as well as the back of house. As the Manager on Duty, one of my main duties is to ensure that any guests’ needs and feedback are attended to promptly.

Improvements based on guests’ feedback are then recommended to the management team. Being a key operations staff member, my priority is to ensure the safety of our guests by being alert to emergency situations and react calmly to resolve any issues.

I have been given opportunities to receive cross-exposure in other departments including the hotel’s Japanese Restaurant, Keyaki, for four months where I learnt a lot about restaurant operations and managing a business. I feel appreciated that the management values feedback from all associates and have implemented constructive improvements based on guests’ suggestions.


5. What personal goals do you wish to achieve with Pan Pacific for the future?


With the hospitality industry booming in Singapore and the extensive developments in the Marina Bay area including the Formula1™ race and the Integrated Resorts, I believe this is one of the most exciting times in history and the growth potential is phenomenal.

Through enriching my knowledge, I look forward to grow and mature with the brand, especially within the Japanese market. It is exciting to initiate and effect change in a dynamic industry.
