St. Regis Hotels & Resorts today announced the debut of The St. Regis Zhuhai. The hotel is perfectly located to welcome discerning business and leisure visitors to the Greater Bay area, which serves as a new integrated business and economic hub comprising the cities of Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Zhuhai.
"As the world has become increasingly accessible, luxury travelers have been placing a greater focus on far-flung and emerging destinations that offer cultural connections and authentic experiences," said Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. "The opening of The St. Regis Zhuhai provides luxury travelers with an opportunity to explore the beauty of this enchanting destination in China while enjoying the signature St. Regis traditions, rituals and service."
"China has seen an incredible increase in tourism, particularly among luxury travelers, and we are excited to meet this demand by bringing the St. Regis brand to the dynamic city of Zhuhai," said Henry Lee, Chief Operations Officer & Managing Director, Greater China, Marriott International. "The opening of The St. Regis Zhuhai represents a meaningful commitment from Marriott International to bring an unparalleled level of exceptional luxury and impeccable service to our guests who come to visit Greater China."
Overlooking the stunning Wanzai shoreline and just a short ferry ride from bustling Macau, The St. Regis Zuhai occupies floors 41 to 72 of the Zhuhai Tower, the city's newest landmark in the business district. Palm tree-lined coastlines and easy access to alluring islands have made Zhuhai a popular travel destination, while its location on the west bank of the Pearl River Delta has made it a key economic city in Southern China. With plans in full swing for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge and development of the Greater Bay Area, a new dawn of economic prosperity is arriving in Zhuhai. An extensive transportation network will also connect Zhuhai to the neighboring cities of Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, propelling an already thriving tourism sector to greater heights. Primed to tap into this tremendous growth, The St. Regis Zhuhai, together with The St. Regis Shenzhen, The St. Regis Macau and The St. Regis Hong Kong (expected to open in Q2 2019), will provide luxurious comfort to modern-day connoisseurs traveling to the Greater Bay area.
The St. Regis Zhuhai features 251 guest rooms, including 34 suites and a 1,100 square-meter Presidential Suite. All guest rooms have panoramic views of the waterways of the Greater Bay area, as well as the historical landscapes and bridge structures of Macau and Zhuhai. Designed by Wilson Associates, each guest room features glamourous touches, including a diamond pattern which pays tribute to the brand's founding patroness, Caroline Astor, who loved the precious stone. A sophisticated team of St. Regis butlers offers guests discreet, personalized and anticipatory attention, down to every detail.
The St. Regis Zhuhai features the brand's signature rituals and traditions in a modern way that reflects the local culture and destination. Inspired by Zhuhai's nickname, "The City of Lovers," The St. Regis' signature Bloody Mary cocktail has been given a local twist. Named the "Pearl Mary," the cocktail features a dash of the city's very own "Fisher Girl" oyster sauce and Chinese imperial plum wine. Afternoon tea at The St. Regis Zhuhai evokes the golden days of the Gilded Age when Caroline Astor hosted exclusive tea parties. Following a signature tradition at St. Regis properties around the world, a bottle of champagne will be sabered every evening to celebrate the transition from day to night.
Guests at The St. Regis Zhuhai are taken on an extraordinary epicurean journey in its five distinctive restaurants and bars, guided by Executive Chef Ramon Turmo, a veteran of luxury hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants. Social is inspired by the first-class dining salons of 1900s cruise liners and showcases the finest seafood. Yan Ting is a superb destination for modern Cantonese fine dining, featuring impeccable service and individually handcrafted dishes by Hong Kong Master Chef Tang Wai Man. With sophisticated mixology and elegant afternoon tea accompanied by classic jazz, The St. Regis Bar is the perfect place to unwind and indulge. Helmed by Chef Michele Tenzone, with experience from seven Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, LaBrezza delights with tantalizing modern and organic Italian fare. Guests can marvel at Zhuhai's breathtaking night panorama with the city's finest cocktails and an extensive selection of wines, champagne and light bites at Air 71.
With 1,500 square-meters of meeting space, The St. Regis Zhuhai offers a wide range of generous layouts and deluxe amenities for all events and gatherings. The St. Regis rooftop on the 72nd floor offers stunning views of the river channel between Hengqin and Macau's Cotai Strip, providing the ideal backdrop for all events. For larger events, there is The Astor Ballroom on the ground level, with its very own entrance.
The Iridium Spa on the 68th floor of the hotel features nine state-of-the-art treatment rooms, each with a Living Earth therapy bed, providing private luxury pampering from revitalizing facials to soothing massages. St. Regis Signature treatments – the Chakra Balancing Massage and the V-shape Face Lift restore and fortify the body, mind and soul.
