Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. will debut the St. Regis brand in Kazakhstan’s lively capital city with the opening of The St. Regis Astana and The Residences at The St. Regis Astana.
The project, which is scheduled to open in 2017, is perfectly timed to the increasing global interest in Kazakhstan as the country prepares to host Expo 2017.
The St. Regis Astana will encompass one of the most prestigious addresses in the capital city, located in Astana Central Park – known as the heart of the city, and nearby embassies, corporate headquarters and banks. The new-build hotel will feature 120 luxurious guest rooms, including 18 spacious suites and a Presidential Suite. The hotel will also offer unrivalled event and meeting space for special celebrations including a ballroom, five meeting rooms and a business centre.
The hotel’s sophisticated culinary offerings will include an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, the distinguished St. Regis Bar & Wine Vault, a cognac bar and library. Luxury leisure facilities include a spa, pool and exercise room, as well as a children’s club. Guests will also enjoy the signature St. Regis Butler Service, providing anticipatory service and customising each guest’s stay to specific tastes and preferences.
The project will also feature 50 unparalleled St. Regis-branded Residences at The St. Regis Astana, which will come with a private entrance. Featuring two, three or four bedrooms, the luxurious 250-square-metre apartments will be adjacent to the hotel and residents will enjoy access to the services and amenities at The St. Regis Astana.
