The FINANCIAL — St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. on December 21 announced the much-awaited debut of The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central in Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with more than 450 years of history and cultural exchange between China and Europe.

Owned by Venetian Orient Limited, an affiliate of Sands China Ltd, the 400-room hotel is set to elevate Macau’s luxury hospitality landscape with its uncompromising experiences, signature butler service, exceptional culinary venues and grand design – all underpinned by the St. Regis brand’s legacy. The opening of The St. Regis Macao marks the brand’s seventh hotel in Greater China, and will be followed by the unveiling of five new St. Regis hotels in 2016 in the world’s most coveted destinations, including Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi in Malaysia, the Maldives, Changsha in China and Cairo, Egypt, according to Starwood.

“There is an ever-increasing demand for luxury around the globe and Macau is no exception, especially with the recent proliferation of luxury brands in the market and a record number of visitors to the destination in 2015,” said Jim Petrus, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “The original St. Regis hotel opened in New York City in 1904, and the debut of The St. Regis Macao marks the brand’s 36th property, following openings this year in Istanbul, Mumbai and Dubai.”

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Sands China Ltd following a very successful collaboration with Starwood to open Sheraton’s largest hotel globally, Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central,” said Stephen Ho, President, Asia Pacific, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “After ten years of rapid development, the Cotai Strip has elevated its status to a world-class tourism destination. The second phase of the Cotai Strip will offer a much more diversified experience for a new generation of luxury travelers, and St. Regis is delighted to be a part of that continued growth momentum.”
