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
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
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.
