Singapore-based Pan Pacific Hotels Group has announced the launch of the new Pan Pacific Xiamen which is slated to open in August 2009 following a series of enhancements.
The hotel was formerly the Sofitel Plaza Xiamen and plans for the extensive refurbishment of the hotel include landscaping the lobby and upgrades to in-room audio-visual equipment such as new flat screen televisions, dual language controls and i-Pod docking stations. For business travelers the room enhancements include improved lighting, ergonomically-designed desks and chairs, as well as a laptop safe. The hotel fitness center will be outfitted with new equipment and enhanced with new audio-visual equipment and other amenities.
Guests will now be able to make their reservations via Pan Pacific's proprietary reservations and distribution platform, PANTHER.

Guests will also have their guest preference information captured in PANTHER.
The hotel will also feature Pan Pacific's executive club, the Pacific Club, on levels 20 through 29. Pacific Club guests will enjoy round the clock butler service and access to the new and expanded Pacific Club Lounge serving breakfast. Additionally, guests will have access to business amenities including fully-equipped meeting rooms and comprehensive business services.
