St. Regis Doubles Up In Malaysia

Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ luxury St. Regis brand has doubled its presence in Malaysia, weeks after debuting in the country on the island of Langkawi. The new St. Regis Kuala Lumpur opens after much anticipation, the latest arrival to the Malaysian capital city luxury hotel portfolio.

 

Part of the One IFC luxury mixed-use development in the KL Sentral area, the hotel enjoys panoramas of the city and overlooks the Lake Gardens, National Museum and Houses of Parliament. Drawing inspiration from a luxurious Manhattan apartment, G.A. Design crafted the interiors to reflect a balance of historical context and a sense of opulence, incorporating an exquisite art collection that includes masterpieces such as a monumental 3.5-meter horse sculpture by Fernando Botero, the specially-commissioned ‘Grace Thunders’ leather murals by Mark Evans depicting a powerful polo charge and a 3D Birds and Butterflies artwork by Barnaby Hosking.

 

208 gracefully appointed accommodations, each with a walk-in wardrobe, are housed within the 48-storey tower. These are among the largest in the city, with the guestrooms (starting at 63 square meters) and suites (starting at 138 square meters) lavishly furnished with luxury bedding and marble bathrooms. The 372-square meter Royal Suite, offers private elevator access, an outdoor terrace with panoramic skyline views, a show kitchen, separate his-and-hers walk-in wardrobes as well as an en-suite massage room and gym.

 

Further enhancing the experience, all guests at The St.Regis Kuala Lumpur are offered the brand signature butler service. Discreet, personalized, and anticipatory, a team of butlers are on-hand to provide uncompromising service to guests, including complimentary daily pressing, unpacking and packing, and in-room morning coffee and tea.

 

The local dining scene is elevated with the addition of 6 new food & beverage venues. Headlining the offerings is Taka by Sushi Saito, the first overseas outpost of 3-Michelin-starred chef Takashi Saito, together with Edo-style tempura at Ginza Tenkuni, prepared the same way since 1885 at the original restaurant. Evolving from a European cafe atmosphere in the day, The Brasserie transforms into a contemporary French-Mediterranean bistro in the evening, while The Drawing Room beautifully presents the St. Regis afternoon tea curated by the hotel’s own tea sommelier. Guests can also retreat to The Astor Bar and Decanter for exquisite cocktails and carefully-selected wines by the master sommelier under a shimmering canopy of hand-made golden Italian tiles, or head up to the Crystal rooftop bar for nighttime panoramas and champagne.

 

Business travellers and event planners have over 10,000 square meters of private event space at their disposal, ranging from intimate meeting rooms to the Grand Ballroom featuring an impressive LED video wall projection system that acts as a digital canvas bringing presentations to life. Guests travelling for leisure can select from a range of refined experiences that reflect the latest innovations in beauty and wellness at the Iridium Spa, complemented by a fitness center, yoga room and outdoor swimming pool.

 

Starwood first introduced the St Regis brand to Malaysia last month with the opening of The St Regis Langkawi. Kuala Lumpur becomes home to the 38th St. Regis hotel worldwide, with 3 more properties (in the Maldives, Changsha and Cairo) to join the portfolio in 2016.
