St Regis Hotels & Resorts has announced the signing of The St. Regis Melbourne, marking the first hotel in Australia for the renowned luxury brand.
Scheduled to open in 2022, the new-build hotel owned by Century Group Aus will be located in the heart of Melbourne, amidst distinctive architecture and a dynamic arts scene.
Located in a luxury mixed-use precinct, The St Regis Melbourne will serve as a landmark gateway to the city’s Central Business District. The property will be within walking distance of Collins Street, known for its historic Victorian architecture, prestigious boutiques and high-end retailers, as well as the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“An ideal destination for the debut of the iconic St Regis brand”
Lisa Holladay, the global brand leader of St Regis Hotels & Resorts, commented: “Melbourne’s vibrant mix of world-class dining, art galleries and rich history makes it an ideal destination for the debut of the iconic St Regis brand in Australia. We are delighted to be working with Century Group Aus to open The St Regis Melbourne and offer our guests impeccable service and exquisite experiences in Australia.”
The 33-storey Flinders Bank will house St Regis Melbourne across levels 2 to 11 and include 168 guestrooms and suites, all of which will offer views of the Yarra River or city skyline. With a goal of becoming a stylish addition to the city, the hotel will be designed by the interior design studio, CHADA.
For food and beverage offerings, the hotel will include a specialty restaurant in addition to a Drawing Room space and the St. Regis Bar, which will serve up the local rendition of the brand’s signature cocktail, the Bloody Mary.
In addition, guests will also be able to immerse themselves in leisure facilities, such as a fitness and wellness centre with a 25-metre indoor swimming pool, an Iridium Spa, and beauty salon. The hotel will also cater to corporate gatherings, special events and weddings. Furthermore, there will be a St Regis Butler Service that personalises each stay according to guests’ tastes and preferences.
“We wanted to create a hotel for today’s discerning and sophisticated traveller”
Connie Wu, the executive director of Century Group Aus, added: “We are honoured to be bringing this iconic brand to Australia. From the outset, we knew we wanted to create a hotel for today’s discerning and sophisticated traveller and the St Regis brand’s timeless, tasteful and luxurious offering is the perfect fit. We are confident this hotel will become an architectural benchmark in the region and the jewel in the crown at Flinders Bank.”
