St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has announced the arrival of the iconic luxury brand into Langkawi, UNESCO’s First World Geopark, with The St. Regis Langkawi.
Owned by Integrated Nautical Resort, the resort is a joint venture between Rajawali Group and the government of Malaysia’s ministry of finance.
The opening marks the brand’s 37th address and the first ever St. Regis in Malaysia.
Following the recent opening of The St. Regis Dubai, the brand is poised to continue its growth momentum this year with grand openings in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; the Maldives; Changsha, China and Cairo, Egypt.
“The St. Regis brand remains laser-focused on increasing its presence in destinations where travellers from around the globe are seeking bespoke guest experiences, and we are thrilled to expand our portfolio in south-east Asia with an extraordinary brand debut in Malaysia – one of the most dynamic countries in the world,” said Jim Petrus, global brand leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts.
“The St. Regis Langkawi is set to redefine luxury hospitality on the island, from the resort’s lush, secluded location, to the iconic St. Regis Butler Service which provides guests with beyond expectation experiences.”
Located in the coveted Langkawi archipelago, the resort is a natural paradise, fringed by a 600-metre white sand beach.
Overlooking the emerald green waters is a 100,000-square metre swimmable lagoon, which integrates seamlessly with the Andaman Sea.
The hotel is conveniently located within a 30-minute drive from the Langkawi International Airport.
With interiors designed by G.A Design and architecture by the renowned architecture firm Gensler, the hotel channels a classical contemporary aesthetic.
A vision of elegant island living, guests are welcomed into a dreamlike atmosphere where each moment thoughtfully blends indoor spaces with the outdoors.
The resort’s mansion house infuses European and Middle Eastern influences, with a subtle colour palette of soft blues and beiges, playing up the stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
Islamic arches, mashrabiya-inspired screening, and large private courtyards embrace the design’s axial symmetry, giving way to a garden oasis populated with date palms, allamanda and bougainvillea.
The St. Regis Langkawi is the first all-suite luxury resort in the archipelago, offering four private overwater villas and 85 luxury suites.
Each suite is distinct in design with bold accent hues and imaginative paintings by esteemed local artists.
All suites offer expansive, unobstructed views of the sea from spacious terraces.
