About the Hotel
Set against one of the most prestigious and romantic neighbourhoods with Kuala Lumpur's largest park, the Lake Gardens, and heritage landmarks such as the National Museum and House of Parliament, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is located in KL Sentral, the city's most important transportation hub. Just as John Jacob Astor IV opened the "finest hotel in America" with the first St. Regis in New York in 1904, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur joins the portfolio of the finest hotels in the world with one of the largest guest rooms in the world. Its classic contemporary interiors combines modern day glamour with old-word elegance, encompassing thoughtful design elements for convenience, privacy and security as well as subtle tributes to the Astors. Infused with luxurious design details such as breathtaking Austrian crystals, stunning chandeliers and hand-made Italian gold tiles, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is inspired by the Astors' love for Polo - the "Game of Kings", and "The" Mrs Astor's love for diamonds. Subtle details include horse-hair leather panels, saddle stitch and stirrup motifs, diamonds and multi-faceted crystals in the handles of the finest hand-crafted furniture. The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur's signature Mini Bar Trunk, is exquisitely detailed in leather and saddle stitch, continuing the story of Polo, the "Game of Kings", and the Astors' luxury travels and dedication to luxury hospitality.
- The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur features a curated private Art Collection, with special commissions of epic proportions, including a monumental horse sculpture by Fernando Botero, leather murals by Mark Evans depicting a powerful Polo charge, and a three-dimensional Birds and Butterflies by Barnaby Hosking, inspired by the leafy enclaves of the Lake Gardens and its Bird and Butterfly Parks.
- Just as The St. Regis New York revolutionised the hotel institution in 1904 with its technological advancements, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur has created a world's first with its Grand Ballroom's LED-seamless projection system that enables a complete transformation of the ballroom's setting. With more than 10,000 m2 of meeting and event space, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur offers multiple breakout areas, and options for off-site meetings and concurrent track events, with state-of-the art technology such as teleconferencing facilities for global connectivity, and a dedicated Screening Room for media and product launches.
