Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka - Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in Tejgaon, Dhaka

Pan Pacific Sonargaon is a hotel in Dhaka. It is one of the oldest 5-star hotels in Bangladesh and is owned by the Government of Bangladesh and operated by Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts.

Hotels Internation Limited was established on 25 June 1977 as a public limited company to establish a five-star hotel in Dhaka.  The foundation of Pan Pacific Sonargaon was laid on 17 October 1977. The construction was financed by Overseas Economic Cooperation Fund (later renamed to Japan Bank for International Cooperation) as a loan to the government of Bangladesh.

Pan Pacific Sonargaon was established in 1981. Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts was hired to manage the hotel as Bangladesh lacked the necessary experience of operating a 5 star hotel. An 8 acres site in Karwan Bazar was chosen as the construction site.

On 13 October 2003, Hotel International Limited announced plans to spend one billion takas to renovate the hotel. On 19 March 2004, Pan Pacific Sonargaon launched the Global Hotel Alliance in Dhaka.

On 30 August 2006, the Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Shahid Alam, asked the Chairman of RAJUK, KAM Harun, to not fine Hotel International Limited for the unapproved expansion of Pan Pacific Sonargaon. The hotel had ignored two notices from RAJUK over its construction in Begunbari Canal. There were whistleblower complaints against Southeast Asia Technology Co Ltd, a consultant for the renovation project, from hotel employees.

Renovation works in the hotel began in 2007 by Accom Engineering Ltd, a sister concern of Orion Group. It was stalled due to the 2007-2008 caretaker government political crises in Bangladesh and corruption allegations. The renovation works were completed by mid-2017.  Orion Group got the 1.8 billion taka renovation project through close connections with Hawa Bhaban according to hotel officials as reported by The Daily Star. The renovations, which started in 2005, were near completion in 2008. A new health club and the pool was opened at the hotel in July following the renovation.
