There’s a new luxury urban escape in town. Nestled in the heart of Wan Chai, a stone’s throw from the Exhibition Centre, the new St Regis Hong Kong opened on April 11th as the brand’s debut property in the 852.
Designed by acclaimed Hong Kong designer Andre Fu, whose design work includes The Upper House, the 27-story St Regis Hong Kong offers 129 luxury rooms and suites, complete with deep-soak freestanding bathtubs and king-size beds.
The hotel will offer the signature St Regis Butler Service, but with a luxurious twist: the boutique nature of this hotel means that the personalised, round-the-clock Butler Service will be one-to-one, and all check-ins will be done in-room. Other services offered by the Butler include packing/unpacking, clothes pressing, drinks service, making social arrangements and bookings, and an eButler contact on the Marriot Mobile App, email, Whatsapp and WeChat.
“Hong Kong has always been one of the most attractive destinations for global luxury travellers,” said Henry Lee, COO and Managing Director for Greater China, Marriott International. “The St. Regis brand is synonymous with timeless luxury and impeccable standards of hospitality. We are very glad to add The St. Regis Hong Kong to Marriott International’s strong luxury portfolio in the market. The St. Regis Hong Kong represents the very best of the St. Regis brand, with its distinctive design, exquisite fine dining and truly exceptional service.”
Created for business travellers and holidaymakers alike, the chic boutique hotel offers a quiet reprieve from the frantic pace of Hong Kong with a full roster of in-house facilities and catering options. The in-house dining venues include two fine-dining restaurants—the contemporary Cantonese Rùn and the French L’Envol (whose two head chefs have been awarded a combined total of more than 20 Michelin stars in their previous roles)—in addition to the more casual all-day venue The Drawing Room, and the signature St Regis Bar.
The hotel facilities include an Athletic Centre, which boasts a comprehensive selection of free-weights, cardio machines and yoga/stretching equipment, and a heated outdoor pool. The hotel currently has one spa treatment room and offers therapies with the award-winning 001 London ‘Yin & Yang’ Skincare range, but will be extending its spa offerings over the coming year.
St Regis Hotels & Resorts originated in the flagship St Regis New York in 1904, founded by John Jacob Astor IV whose attention to bespoke luxury living defined the signature services and rituals of the St Regis brand still used today.
