Starwood Hotels & Resorts is to introduce its luxury St. Regis brand to Malaysia with the signing of The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur. Owned by ONE IFC Sdn Bhd, the newly constructed property will include 200 guest rooms and 200 whole-ownership St. Regis branded Residences, as well as a luxury Remde spa, gourmet dining and spacious meeting facilities.

 The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is scheduled to open in 2014, and will offer a prime location in KL Sentral, directly opposite the National Museum and Lake Gardens. Spanning 72 acres, KL Sentral is one of the largest commercial developments in Kuala Lumpur today and is regarded by many as the citys new Central Business District. Guests will appreciate the hotels close proximity to the KL Sentral railway hub and major commercial areas including KLCC and Bukit Bintang.

The capital and largest city in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is one of the best examples of an Asian city that has managed to preserve the best of its cultural heritage while emerging as one of Asias fastest growing centers for trade, commerce, finance, and information technology.

The sustained demand for luxury accommodations, the legendary bespoke service of the St. Regis brand, and the unrivaled location of this hotel in the KL Sentral area will make St. Regis Kuala Lumpur an extremely attractive choice for travelers to this dynamic capital city, said Mr. Miguel Ko, President for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific.

The New York-based architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has been appointed as the main architect for the ONE IFC development. Founded in 1936, SOM is one of the world's leading architecture, urban design, engineering, and interior architecture firms with a portfolio that features some of the most important architectural accomplishments of the 20th century.
