 Developed by MG Holding, The St. Regis Astana is located inside Astana’s Central Park, in close proximity to landmarks including the Bayterek Tower and Independence Square, as well as the Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center, Astana Opera and foreign embassies.

“The country’s rich history and culture blend beautifully with The St. Regis Astana, whose design, services, and culinary offerings perfectly combine the rituals and traditions of St. Regis with those of Kazakhstan,” said Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “Astana is a vibrant destination that continues to grow in popularity and we look forward to offering a truly luxurious experience to the growing ranks of business and leisure travelers visiting the capital city.”

Created by WATG and Wimberly Interiors, the hotel’s design takes inspiration from the horsemanship and nomadic culture of Kazakhstan, providing guests with a link to the country’s ancient past.

 A vision of contemporary living, guests are greeted by a courtyard layout inspired by that of an indigenous yurt. Set above the ground level, the courtyard connects the hotel, hotel residences, retail center and offices.

The St. Regis Astana boasts 120 guestrooms, including 23 suites with private Juliette terraces and views of the Astana Park and Ishim River.

An expansive Presidential Suite, measuring 510 square meters, occupies the top floor of the hotel, offering custom-designed furniture, a study, drawing room, dining room that can accommodate up to 10 guests, wine vault, a spacious bathroom that includes a sauna, and a 139-square-meter private outdoor terrace.

The St. Regis Astana features two distinct dining venues including The Grill, a contemporary fine dining experience with a personalized table-side presentation serving Astana’s best cuts of meats, fish and vegetables. La Rivičre, the city’s renowned restaurant, has found a new home at The St. Regis Astana, offering a wide selection of the finest cuisine and wine in the city.

 Additionally, The St. Regis Bar features some of the world’s finest champagnes, rare vintage wines, hand-crafted cocktails, and the signature St. Regis Bloody Mary. Guests are invited to try the Nomad Snapper, the hotel’s own take on Bloody Mary. Inspired by the ancient traditions of nomad, the Nomad Snapper represents the nomadic culture at the vast steppes of Kazakhstan. Served in a glass that resembles the Bayterek, one of the signature monuments of Astana, the cocktail unites local flavors, such as Kurt cheese, Adjika and Aral Sea salt, while Kurt and wheat bread infusion add a unique touch.

The hotel also features over 1,000 square meters of functional meeting space, a spa, beauty and grooming salon, a hammam and an indoor swimming pool.

To celebrate the opening, The St. Regis Astana is offering a special opening package. Starting from USD480 per room per night, guests will enjoy an opulent stay in a Deluxe room, complimentary breakfasts as well as signature Bloody Mary for two, and a 30-minute couple massage at Iridium Spa.
