St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is to open The St. Regis Langkawi in November 2015.
The hotel is situated within an idyllic cove with 85 well-appointed suites and three water villas, each boasting a spectacular view of the Straits of Malacca.
Each guestroom will also feature the signature St. Regis Butler Service.
Trained in the English tradition, St. Regis butlers provide discerning guests with around-the-clock customised services, anticipating each guest’s every need.
The hotel is close to Kuah town, Langkawi’s shopping and commercial centre, and is approximately a 20-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport.
“St. Regis is a game-changer to Langkawi’s luxury tourism offerings,” said Stephen Ho, president, Asia Pacific, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
Owned by Integrated Nautical Resort, the destination is a joint-venture between Rajawali Group, Malaysia Ministry of Finance and Langkawi Development Authority.
“Langkawi is emerging as a world-class luxury destination,” added Tan Sri Peter Sondakh, chairman of Rajawali Group.
“It is among the world’s best islands, and we feel that it’s a great opportunity to introduce the St. Regis brand and its uncompromising services, offering bespoke service to worldly, well-heeled travellers.”
A myriad of culinary experiences, with five food and beverage venues, will keep up with the rich heritage and legacy of the St. Regis brand.
The resort’s signature bar will serve the legendary Bloody Mary cocktail, born at the flagship St. Regis New York hotel in the early 1900s.
The resort will also create a local version of the Bloody Mary, a tradition that every St. Regis around the world cherishes.
Guests at The St. Regis Langkawi will also be able to indulge in a range of luxurious specialty massages and well-being treatments, crafted to pamper and allure their weary senses in a tranquil and private Spa Salon.
Other resort amenities will include a swimming pool, gym and function space, with access to expanded meeting facilities at the ultra-modern Langkawi International Convention Centre.
