Starwood Opens The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur

Starwood has opened the 38th St. Regis hotel.

 The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, owned and developed by ONE IFC Sdn Bhd, is part of ONE IFC, a mixed-use development located in the Kuala Lumpur Sentral Precinct (KL Sentral).

 Inspired by a luxurious Manhattan apartment, with interiors and architecture by G.A. Design, the hotel features a timeless design scheme created with historical context and a sense of opulence. The exquisite art collection includes masterpieces such as an 11.5-foot horse sculpture by Fernando Botero; Grace Thunders, a specially commissioned diptych of two 16-foot hand-etched leather murals by Mark Evans depicting a powerful polo charge; and a three-dimensional Birds and Butterflies artwork by Barnaby Hosking.

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur houses 208 rooms and suites, each with a walk-in wardrobe. Starting at 678 square feet, the guestrooms are amongst the largest in the city. Suites start in size from 1,485 square feet. The Royal Suite, spanning 4,000 square feet, 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.

“Our collaboration with Starwood’s ultra-luxury brand further positions Kuala Lumpur as a global city, redefining luxury hospitality in Malaysia and the region. As a niche property developer, we are committed to setting new benchmarks for the St. Regis brand, putting modern technology at the forefront of this development. The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur’s distinct style will allow guests to enjoy the city’s largest standard rooms, exquisite dining venues and avant-garde event spaces,” said Carmen Chua, Chief Executive Officer of ONE IFC Sdn Bhd.

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur features six distinct restaurant and bar venues including Taka by Sushi Saito, the first restaurant to open outside Tokyo by three Michelin-starred chef Takashi Saito. Ginza Tenkuni offers Edo-style tempura created the same way since the original restaurant opened its doors in 1885. The Brasserie delivers a European café experience during the day and transforms into a contemporary French-Mediterranean bistro in the evening, while The Astor Bar and Decanter serve cocktails and carefully selected wines by the master sommelier, all set under a canopy of hand-made golden Italian tiles. The Crystal rooftop bar provides an elegant space for cocktails and champagne, whilst The Drawing Room presents St. Regis afternoon tea, curated by the tea sommelier.

The hotel also features 100,000 square feet of private event space, an Iridium Spa, fitness center, yoga room, and outdoor swimming pool.

“Kuala Lumpur serves as a befitting destination to introduce the St. Regis brand with its intriguing juxtaposition of refined elegance and contemporary charm,” said Charlie Dang, Regional Vice President, Southeast Asia, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. “The opening of The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur further strengthens our commitment to Starwood’s luxury portfolio in this dynamic market, which continues to see strong demand for high-end accommodations from discerning travelers.”

Three more St Regis hotels, in Maldives, Changsha, and Cairo, are scheduled to open this year.
