The St. Regis Kuala Lampur is designed with a New York touch. The Caroline Astor Suite Living Room is shown here.
St. Regis has exported its signature butler service to Malaysia’s capital. Hot on the heels of the debut of The St. Regis Langkawi, the luxury hotel group opened The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur in May with an impressive art collection and Taka by Sushi Saito, the first restaurant outside of Tokyo for Michelin three-star Chef Takashi Saito. St. Regis is on a roll indeed, as it has three more luxury properties slated to open in 2016 in the Maldives, Changsa and Cairo. Starwood’s ultra-luxury brand aims to expand the collection to 50 hotels by 2020.
The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, which offers sweeping views over the capital, is part of ONE IFC, a premier mixed-use development, which is situated in the Kuala Lumpur Sentral Precinct (KL Sentral). In decorating the hotel, G.A. Design took their design cues from the luxurious Manhattan apartments that inspired the original St. Regis in New York over a century ago.
We hear the 208 guestrooms are the largest in the city, and each come with walk-in closets, complimentary daily pressing and unpacking/packing by the signature St. Regis butlers. The best room in the house is the Royal Suite, a palatial pad accessed by private elevator. Perks include an in-room gym, a massage room and an outdoor terrace with panoramic views.

The hotel’s facilities have upped the luxury quotient in Kuala Lumpur. There’s an Iridium Spa, a fitness center, a yoga room, an outdoor pool and more than 100,000 square feet of event space. The six restaurants and lounges include the Crystal rooftop bar and The Drawing Room for that famous St. Regis Afternoon Tea.
