St. Regis Hotels & Resorts Scheduled To Join Hong Kong's Magnificent Skyline In Early 2019
Renowned Interior Designer André Fu to Bring Inimitable Style to the Bustling Metropolis
HONG KONG - Jan. 8, 2018 // PRNewswire // - St. Regis Hotels & Resorts today announced a collaboration with China Resources Property which is slated to bring the legendary St. Regis brand to Hong Kong by early 2019. Marriott International has nine properties in Hong Kong, but this will be the first property for the St. Regis brand in the city.
"Hong Kong is a bustling center of commerce with an incredible mix of glamour, culture, history and tradition. This vibrancy makes it an ideal destination for St. Regis," said Lisa Holladay, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. "With its excellent location, impeccable service, and refined elegance, we look forward to offering guests an exquisite experience in one of the world's most exciting cities."
Located in the heart of historic Wan Chai, with its skyscrapers, high-end shopping and commercial buildings, the new St. Regis Hong Kong will be within walking distance to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, as well as and Victoria Harbor.
With interiors created by acclaimed Hong Kong-based designer, André Fu, the 25-story St. Regis Hong Kong will offer 129 guest suites, many of which will feature stunning views across Victoria Harbor and Kowloon Bay. Guests will enjoy the brand's legendary St. Regis Butler Service, signature Chinese and French restaurants, a 320-seat banquet hall and a heated swimming pool, among other luxurious amenities. An open-air terrace next to a grand Lobby Lounge will provide the ideal venue for al fresco gatherings, and a St. Regis Bar will serve up the hotel's rendition of the brand's signature cocktail, the Bloody Mary.
The glamorous, fast-paced city of Hong Kong has long been considered a place where 'East Meets West', due to the fusion of its deep Chinese roots and its recent history as a British colony. Beneath its ultramodern, 21st-century façade of glittering skyscrapers and world-class infrastructure, old traditions remain and ancient concepts such as feng shui are still deeply respected throughout the city. Truly a cosmopolitan city and a hub for international finance and trade, Hong Kong still boasts age-old Cantonese cuisine found in small noodle shops next to chic designer boutiques.
"St. Regis constantly seeks to reinterpret and reimagine time-honored traditions, bringing exciting new options and modern conveniences to luxury travelers," said Paul Foskey, Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. "We are glad to be working with China Resources Property, a subsidiary of China Resources Holding, to bring the legendary St. Regis name to Hong Kong."
"We are proud to be bringing this iconic brand to Hong Kong," said Frankie Y.F. Bao, Managing Director, China Resources Property. "All St. Regis Hotels & Resorts represent the ultimate in timeless, tasteful luxury, which the discerning and sophisticated traveler appreciates. We are also happy to note that the presence of the outstanding new St Regis in Wan Chai district will add a new level of prestige and appeal to this vibrant quarter of our city."
St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is one of the world's fastest growing luxury brands, more than doubling its footprint in recent years. There are currently more than 40 St. Regis branded hotels open worldwide, with nine properties in the Greater China region.
