St Regis Singapore: Launch of a star

Filed under: 1 — Propertymarketupdates @ 3:03 am

Krug champagne flowed and strains of Frank Sinatra floated in the air as nearly 1,000 guests partied at the official opening of St Regis Singapore last night.

Holding court in Tanglin Road, just minutes from Orchard Road, it is the first six-star international-brand hotel to open here in 12 years.

The last one, the Ritz-Carlton Millenia, opened in 1996.

Minister for National Development Mah Bow Tan, the guest of honour at the New York-themed event, said its opening was a reflection of the confidence in the booming tourism industry here.

The Government earmarked 12 sites for hotels this year, which should add 6,000 rooms and ease the ongoing room crunch.

The 299-room St Regis promises a personalised butler for every guest and a fleet of customised Bentleys to take them around town.

The hotel also has a collection of more than 90 pieces of artwork by the likes of French painter Marc Chagall and Columbian sculptor Fernando Botero, as well as Singaporean pioneers Chen Wen Hsi and Georgette Chen.
