    last minute life saver

    We originally had our wedding planned at a different venue. Due to COVID they closed and we were scrambling to figure out what to do 1 month before our big day. Luckily Merina from The Fairmont Pacific Rim helped us organize our wedding on the Chariman's Terrace. She was amazing. She answered all our questions. We had over 50+ email exchanged within those 4 weeks leading up to our wedding. The team at the fairmont were attentive, helpful, and were ready to help you with any of your needs to help make the day run smoothly.

    Also, we were surprised that the rental fee for the venue wasn't even that much!

    Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel's reply:

    This last year was filled with changes for many couples, but we were so thrilled to be a part of your big day! The Chairman’s Terrace was the perfect alternative for a more intimate wedding, and your pictures really speak for themselves. Thank you for your kind feedback Jessica, we wish you and Alex a lifetime of happiness, and don’t forget to come back and visit us for those special anniversaries.

    Intimate Micro-Wedding at the Gold Lounge

    Fairmont PacRim's staff have been absolutely amazing and way beyond what we could've expected in terms of quality and consistency. We had the pleasure of meeting several staff members including Nicole Reaume (Director of Conference Services & Catering), Nicole Stout (Catering Sales Manager), Yana Rakhmanova (Catering Sales Manager), and our one and only Merina Chandra (Wedding and Special Events Manager).

    Merina had returned from maternity leave and swiftly helped us plan out our special day from location to food to drinks. Moreover, Merina helped us navigate through COVID pandemic in such a calm and reassuring manner that no one else would've been able to pull off. We ended up choosing to postpone our bigger reception to 2021 and still held a microwedding at the special Gold Lounge on the 20th floor. The menu was also spectacular as recommended by Merina and every single guest complimented just how amazing it was. Over and beyond what we could have imagined our day to be like.

    Fairmont's service staff, from waiters/waitresses to the chef's attending our food stations, to the bartenders that made our drinks behind the scenes, were all absolutely wonderful. They truly made our day an extra bit more special providing considerate, consistent, and thoughtful service to everyone the entire day. THANK YOU!!!

    WIth Love,
    Andrew & Sophia

    Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel's reply:

    Thank you, Andrew & Sophia!

    We were so honoured to not only host your intimate celebration but truly personalize it to the two of you! The Fairmont Gold Lounge was such a beautiful location and it was a rare opportunity to host your wedding as the floor is normally occupied with the Gold Floor guests, but due to COVID-19 restrictions we were able to have your fabulous wedding in the space– and my goodness, what a day it was! We truly appreciate hearing the feedback about your guests enjoyment.

    Furthermore we cannot wait to celebrate you for your larger reception later on! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. Might I suggest staying on our Gold Floor for your upcoming anniversary? Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need anything at all.

    We had hosted an intimate Chinese tea ceremony at the Fairmont Pacific Rim at one of their ballroom sections. The location and product is amazing and the entire planning process with their events/wedding planning manager was flawless. On the day itself, the execution was very smooth and we'd like to thank their culinary team especially for doing a great job in customizing our food menu - all of our guests raved about the food! The service staff were also very attentive and professional. We'd be happy to recommend this venue to our friends!

    We had our wedding reception at this hotel and we thought the service was average. There were a few requests that they could not accommodate but I think that is pretty standard for most hotels in terms of inflexibility. The food was really good though, we had the Oru buffet and got lots of compliments from our guests.

Executive Chef

I'm an award winning and celebrated chef in Australia, and moved from down under into the role of executive chef at Fairmont Pacific Rim. My 30 year career has spanned fine dining restaurants, five star hotels, airlines, and catering services. My philosophy is to pass it forward. I’m fortunate to have learned from many great chefs and enjoy the mentor role. Giving young chefs the right skill set and assisting their career path is a great contribution to the industry. One of my proudest accomplishments is to see them cooking in the world’s best restaurants like French laundry, Tetsuya’s, Attica and The Ledbury.
