The St Regis Hotel and Residences KL are designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, will feature 200 luxury hotel rooms and 200 whole ownership units or branded residences as well as a spa, gourmet dining, and meeting facilities.

The location of the St. Regis Hotel KL is set against one of the most prestigious and romantic neighbourhoods of Kuala Lumpur by the main transportation hub of KL Sentral.

The hotel and residences also overlook Malaysia′s largest and oldest park – the 227–acre Lake Gardens and other heritage landmarks of the National Museum, Parliament House and Carcosa Seri Negara.

The St Regis brand was founded by John Jacob Astor in New York in 1904 and is world-renowned for its service and hospitality excellence. Astor was among the fatalities in the infamous sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

The St Regis chain also targets a niche market comprising presidents and prime ministers, diplomats, dignitaries and captains of industries.

95% of the staffing requirements of the hotel will be sourced locally and trained under St Regis’ existing training programs in service and food and beverage.
