With travelling out of the picture right now, many of us are looking for unique ways to quench our wanderlust. Make your way to Keyaki Garden Pavilion located in Pan Pacific Singapore to get a little slice of Kyoto, Japan – all without having to leave the little red dot.
The private dining space overlooks a tranquil Japanese garden with a koi pond and a flowing stream to boot. It has a maximum seating capacity of 60.
Scenery that will transport you to Kyoto
There, you can enjoy a sumptuous repast while revelling in the refreshing scenery. Pay attention to how the garden reflects harmony with nature and get a sense of the palpable serenity. Plus, feast your eyes upon the intertwining koi pond. It is a recurring feature in many gardens in Japan and the presence of it at Keyaki Garden Pavilion certainly adds on to the allure of the place.
The mesmerising setting makes for a spectacular photo backdrop for the gram. You can certainly convince your followers into believing that you are overseas (if not for the travel restrictions).
