Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, Chairman of ARTIC, commented on this acquisition: “We are proud to add this iconic resort to our growing property portfolio; the St. Regis brand represents a symbol of uncompromising elegance and bespoke service. This acquisition complements our investment focus on world class assets in prime locations as we continue to expand our presence around the globe. We enjoy a strong relationship with Starwood Hotels & Resorts, are delighted to be working with them again and look forward to continuing this relationship in the future.”
