June 22, 2015: St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., has announced its debut in India with the St. Regis Mumbai in the third quarter of 2015. Owned by Pallazzio Hotels & Leisure Ltd., the Palladium Hotel is currently undergoing an extensive rebranding and will soon fly the St. Regis flag.
Dilip Puri, Managing Director India and Regional Vice President South Asia, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, said, “Starwood is maintaining strong growth momentum in the region and the arrival of St. Regis in Mumbai reinforces our commitment to growing our luxury portfolio in this important market. With the hotel’s strategic location, sophisticated service and refined elegance, we look forward to offering guests an unparalleled experience both befitting of the destination and true to the St. Regis legacy.”
Atul Ruia Managing Director Phoenix Mills Ltd and Director Pallazzio Hotels & Leisure Ltd added, “We are very excited to partner with Starwood Hotels. With the St. Regis legacy and its renowned bespoke service, The St. Regis Mumbai is poised to become a destination for discerning luxury travellers and the city’s social glitterati.”
Located in the sophisticated Lower Parel area, less than half an hour drive from Chhatrapati Shivaji International & Domestic Airport terminals in Mumbai and a quick and easy drive across the iconic Worli Sea Link, the hotel will offer easy access to upscale restaurants and pubs, premium office space, chic boutiques and luxury real estate. Adjoining the hotel is the famous Palladium, the only luxury retail shopping center in the city which houses some of the world’s most celebrated luxury brands.
The 38-story St. Regis Mumbai will feature 386 well-appointed guest rooms, including 60 suites. The hotel’s sophisticated culinary offerings will include an all-day dining restaurant featuring a wide range of gourmet selections from around the world, four specialty restaurants, a club lounge, and three bars. Guests will be able to indulge in the legendary world renowned Bloody Mary cocktail, born at the flagship St. Regis New York hotel in the early 1900s.
The St. Regis Mumbai will also feature the brand’s signature Iridium Spa, offering guests with bespoke touches of a rare spa experience. Building on a legacy that dates back to 1938 and the grand opening of The Iridium Room at The St. Regis New York, Iridium Spa articulates the same distinctive elegance—both in the enthralling design of its treatment suites and in thoughtful gestures like a signature tea ritual. Other leisure facilities include a swimming pool and a fitness center. For meetings and events, the hotel will offer over 5,200 square meters of unrivalled event space including a 4200-square-meter grand ballroom.
