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 3 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, Inc. “Its rich heritage, refined sophistication and bespoke services, coupled with Starwood’s strong membership loyalty programme Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG®) , will enhance Langkawi’s 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.

“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.”

Dato Dr. Isa, Chairman of INR, also lauded the development of The St. Regis Langkawi as an excellent platform to bolster the Langkawi Blueprint strategy, to strengthen the luxury travel segment in the islands, as well as to enhance the vibrancy of the country’s north-western coast. 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 (LICC).

The property is one kilometre from a new integrated coastal development, which encompasses the Langkawi International Convention Centre (LICC), an extensive, 6,100 square metres meeting and conference venue. Featuring state-of-the-art facilities amidst luxurious surroundings, LICC recently hosted high profile functions, including the ASEAN Defence Ministers Meeting in March 2015 and the ASEAN Leaders Summit this April. With its largest meeting area boasting 1,600 square metres of space, LICC is ready to raise the bar on Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) in the region.

The integrated coastal development also offers existing and new facilities that complement LICC’s services, enhancing visitors’ lifestyle experiences in Langkawi. These include the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, Royal Langkawi Yacht Club, a high end retail hub, improved landscaping of Eagle Square Park and much more.

Upon its full completion later this year, The St. Regis Langkawi will join a growing portfolio of over 30 distinguished St. Regis hotels around the world. The resort will also further strengthen Starwood’s footprint on the island, where the company currently operates four properties under Sheraton, Westin, The Luxury Collection and Four Points by Sheraton brands. Starwood continues its aggressive expansion in Malaysia, and is on track to add eight more hotels in the next four years, including The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, opening in December 2015, and W Kuala Lumpur.
