The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur opens in Malaysia

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has announced the opening of The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur.

Owned by ONE IFC Sdn Bhd, the new hotel will feature more than 10,000 sqm of private event space and modern features, including an LED video wall projection system in the Grand Ballroom. Acting as a LED Digital Canvas, the projector immerses guests into a virtual reality simulation, providing high image and sound quality through panoramic displays.

The hotel is located in the Kuala Lumpur Sentral Precinct (KL Sentral). Following this opening, St. Regis will add three additional locations to its portfolio in 2016, including the Maldives, Changsha, and Cairo.

 "The St. Regis brand is growing in the most vibrant and sought-after destinations around the globe and the debut in Kuala Lumpur, in partnership with ONE IFC Sdn Bhd, truly marks an incredible milestone for our company," said Jim Petrus, global brand leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. "The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur’s strategic location, tech-forward facilities, and sophisticated services will offer the finest guest experiences imaginable, crafted for today’s luminaries who make our hotels their home away from home."
