St. Regis Langkawi to Open 6 April 2016

Starwood is set to expand its portfolio of St. Regis hotels when the brand opens its first property on Langkawi Island in Malaysia on 6 April 2016.

Located approximately 20 minutes from Langkawi International Airport, The St. Regis Langkawi will feature 85 suites and 4 water villas, each boasting views of the Straits of Malacca.

St. Regis is a game-changer to Langkawis luxury tourism offerings, said Stephen Ho, President, Asia Pacific, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. Its rich heritage, refined sophistication and bespoke services, coupled with Starwoods strong membership loyalty programme Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), will enhance Langkawis efforts to become an international nautical holiday destination and gathering place of affluent global travellers.

Owned by Integrated Nautical Resort Sdn Bhd (INR), the resort is a joint-venture between Rajawali Group, Malaysia Ministry of Finance and Langkawi Development Authority.

Guests at The St. Regis Langkawi will be able to indulge in a range of specialty massages and well-being treatments, crafted to pamper and allure their weary senses in the Iridium Spa.

Other resort amenities will include five F&B outlets, a swimming pool, an 100,000 sqm swimmable natural saltwater lagoon, and a gym.

The hotel also has function space and access to expanded meeting facilities at the ultra-modern Langkawi International Convention Centre (LICC).

Langkawi is emerging as a world-class luxury destination, said Tan Sri Peter Sondakh, Chairman of Rajawali Group. It is among the worlds best islands, and we feel that its a great opportunity to introduce the St. Regis brand and its uncompromising services, offering bespoke service to worldly, well-heeled travellers.

The St. Regis Langkawi will join a growing portfolio of over 30 St. Regis hotels around the world. The resort will also further strengthen Starwoods footprint on the island, where the company currently operates four properties under Sheraton, Westin, The Luxury Collection and Four Points by Sheraton brands.

Starwood is on track to add eight more hotels in Malaysia in the next four years, including The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur and W Kuala Lumpur.
