Living comfortably in Singapore: Seeking out the best stay experience for expats

Expatriate assignees, and their employers, are looking for cost-effective, all-inclusive, and reliable accommodation solutions, be it for the long- or short-term.

Is it any surprise that the latest survey of 11,970 expats globally, by InterNations, found Singapore ranked third among the 52 most favoured destinations for relocating expatriates?

As an exceptionally effective city-state, Singapore continues to top the charts for expatriate satisfaction – from its digital & physical infrastructure, to safety & accessibility; from its education & language prowess to administrative & banking matters.

Housing, at the moment, is a particularly tricky area of concern, with the current rental market driving the need for cooling measures.

As a result, expatriate assignees, and their employers, are looking for cost-effective, all-inclusive, and reliable accommodation solutions, be it for the long- or short-term.

Whether it’s a permanent relocation, conference or workcation, making sure your employees are comfortably housed is paramount to companies. Selecting a residence that emulates those values has got to be on top of your list, whether you’re chalking out a corporate housing policy for your incoming expatriates or relocation clients, or are yourself considering a move to the ‘Lion City’.

Discover the new, find comfort in the familiar

Situated in the vibrant enclave of Beach Road and Arab Street, the 180-suite Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road in Singapore is the perfect choices for business, relocation, leisure or indeed a fusion of the above – workcation or business-leisure (termed ‘bleisure’).

Within close distance to the Central Business District (CBD) as well as some of Singapore’s major retail centres, this property is conveniently located with access to both the Nicoll Highway and Bugis MRT line, with complimentary shuttle services to the CBD and other key locations.

Residents can choose from four types of apartments depending on your needs, from a one-bedroom deluxe suite to a two-bedroom premium suite, with each suite offering some of the best views in the city. All living spaces fuses contemporary design with a warm familiar touch for a quintessential extended-stay experience, and feature well-appointed and fully furnished interiors that exude relaxation and practicality.

Each suite includes a fully equipped kitchen; well defined living, dining and bedroom areas; ensuite bathrooms with premium amenities; wash-cum-dryer facilities, LCD televisions with local and cable channels, and wired and wireless high-speed internet. A filtered drinking water faucet in each suite provided filtered drinking water straight from the tap, having undergone advanced filtration that meets WHO standards.

But the perfect serviced apartment is just one part of what makes a great workcation. It’s the additions that elevate the experience into something special.

Think about the daily breakfast and housekeeping (except for Sundays and public holidays), personalised welcome hamper for monthly-lease guests, 24-hour guest service ambassador, concierge and security services, a shuttle bus service, Pacific Lounge, the residents’ lounge (called Living Room), meeting rooms, rooftop infinity swimming pool, 24-hour fully equipped fitness centre, and car park – the additions that make Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road an all-encompassing home away from home.

A refreshing extended-stay experience

Singapore may be a small island but it sure packs a punch for visiting expats as much as it does for locals. From hosting the annual Formula One race to global summits in healthcare, B2B and more, to an array of attractions, the most recent being Jewel at Changi – there's plenty to keep one busy. Notwithstanding the nation’s global nickname of being the ‘Garden City’ with green spaces such as Botanic Gardens and MacRitchie Reservoir, the city sure sets itself up to support physical and mental wellbeing for all.

General Manager Damian Tan paints a picture: “Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road is designed for extended stay travellers, with well-appointed suites featuring modern, luxurious furnishings, a fully equipped kitchenette with filtered drinking water faucet, and laundry facilities.”

He adds: “Your home away from home, a host of lifestyle offerings await, from round-the-clock guest services ambassadors, buffet breakfast, housekeeping services, to a cosy resident’s lounge with pool table, modern fitness centre and rooftop swimming pool boasting views of the Singapore skyline.”

The Pan Pacific DISCOVERY loyalty programme is part of Global Hotel Alliance which provides access to over 800 hotels and 40 brands around the world.

This year and beyond has brought about long-lasting changes to employees, employee experience, and how we think about work. From hybrid to remote to the workcation these trends are here to stay. And the companies thriving in this war for talent are the ones prepared to offer their employees the greatest suite of services to embrace this changed dynamic.
