St Regis opens its first property in Thailand today on Rajadamri Road in Bangkok’s CBD, occupying floors 12 to 24 of a 47-storey building.
The 227 rooms, including 51 suites, range from 45 to 250sqm and are all equipped with DVD players, LCD TV, a multimedia hub and wifi internet access. The butler service offers every guest around the clock attention without being too invasive. Basic services include packing and unpacking, garment pressing and beverage service whenever needed.
The butler team at the property have not only undergone an extensive training to match the St Regis standard, but also consist of an international mix. Andreas Oberoi, general manager of the St Regis Bangkok, said: “The St Regis Bangkok features an international team of butlers representing Thailand, India, Japan and others. To assist the butlers in learning how to anticipate the needs of the most discerning travellers, the chief butlers from the St Regis Lhasa and the St Regis Osaka came to Bangkok to work individually with the butlers.”
Alongside the refined service, the St Regis Bangkok consists of five fine dining outlets: Viu, an international grill with sweeping views of the Bangkok skyline; JoJo, serving Italian cuisine; Decanter, which features an extensive wine cellar; the Drawing Room, ideal for Afternoon Tea, and finally Zuma, the fusion Japanese restaurant from London. Decanter and Viu both offer private dining options. For drinks, the hotel has two watering holes – the St Regis Bar and the Pool Bar.
For meetings, the hotel provides a business centre, a total of 1,515sqm of meeting space including the 515sqm Astor Ballroom and several smaller meeting rooms all equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
