The St. Regis Zhuhai to hold open­ing cer­e­mony

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - ENTERPRISE -

The St. Regis Zhuhai will hold an open­ing cer­e­mony on Oc­to­ber 18. The ho­tel is lo­cated at Wan­zai Water­front in Zhuhai, which is known as an eco­nomic and tourism town in south China’s Guang­dong Prov­ince. Lo­cated on floors 41-72 on top of the Zhuhai Tower, a land­mark build­ing in Zhuhai, it over­looks the broad sea scenery of the Greater Bay Area and the pros­per­ous ur­ban land­scape of Zhuhai and Ma­cao. As the tenth ho­tel that St. Regis has opened in China, the St. Regis Zhuhai will con­tinue with the clas­sic le­gend of “cap­i­tal of ro­mance,” in­her­it­ing the el­e­gant and ex­quis­ite life­style and cre­ate the cus­tom­ized lux­u­ri­ous ex­pe­ri­ence for the dis­tin­guished per­son­ages with ex­cel­lent taste.

Zhuhai is lo­cated on the west bank of the Pearl River Delta. It is a beau­ti­ful place known as “the city of one hun­dred is­lands” and the only way to ar­rive in Ma­cao is by a land route. Stand­ing at the beau­ti­ful Wan­zai Water­front, the St. Regis Zhuhai is sep­a­rated with Ma­cao by the river. With the in-depth de­vel­op­ment of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Ma­cao Bridge and the plan­ning of Guang­dong-Hong Kong-Ma­cao Greater Bay Area, Zhuhai, as one of the core cities of the project, will usher in an­other eco­nomic take-off. The de­vel­oped traf­fic net­work reach­ing all direc­tions makes its con­tact with the neigh­bor­ing cities such as Hong Kong, Ma­cao, Shen­zhen and Guangzhou. Af­ter the St. Regis Zhuhai open­ing, it will cre­ate the best place of the Greater Bay Area along with the St. Regis Shen­zhen, the St. Regis Ma­cao, and the St. Regis Hong Kong that is to be opened in 2019.

The St. Regis Zhuhai will start from re­build­ing clas­sic and aims at in­her­it­ing and re­vi­tal­iz­ing the class el­e­ments of the brand in a mod­ern way: the tra­di­tional rit­u­als of the St. Regis are the Bloody Mary, St. Regis af­ter­noon tea and night cer­e­mony. The Bloody Mary adopts raw Yunv oys­ter sauce with lo­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics in Zhuhai and the of­fi­cial plum wine to show the ex­clu­sive taste of the leg­endary Bloody Mary cock­tail. The St. Regis af­ter­noon tea in­her­its the so­cial way of first-class so­ci­ety which was es­tab­lished by Mrs. Caro­line, the mother of the St.Regis pi­o­neer Mr. As­tor in the Gilded Age. It also em­bod­ies the el­e­gance and lofti­ness of the tra­di­tional Bri­tish af­ter­noon tea. The night cer­e­mony, based on the brand’s tra­di­tion, was also es­tab­lished by Mrs. Caro­line. The joy­ful at­mos­phere of the cer­e­mony be­gins at 6 pm. In the hall of the court­yard lo­cated on the 41st floor, The Lady of the Camel­lias from the fa­mous com­poser Giuseppe Verdi can be heard. In the cli­max of the song, the stew­ard that wears a knight’s cloak opens the cham­pagne with a saber and toasts with the guests, thus ex­pect­ing the ar­rival of a beau­ti­ful night.

Wil­son As­so­ci­ates de­signed the ho­tel as a clas­sic and mod­ern Euro­pean man­sion. It adopts a large num­ber of rep­re­sen­ta­tive di­a­mond pat­terns and di­a­mond el­e­ments of the St. Regis. The ho­tel boasts 251 lux­u­ri­ous guest rooms in el­e­gant style, in­clud­ing 34 over­sized suites and one pres­i­den­tial suite with an area of more than 1,100 square me­ters. The room is equipped with clas­sic beds made by the St. Regis and Frette bed­ding. The bath­room is equipped with a bath­tub of hy­drother­apy rank­ing. The liv­ing room is em­bed­ded with unique retro Euro­pean fur­ni­ture. And the charm­ing coastal re­sort and new en­ter­tain­ment equip­ment add more com­fort to the check-in ex­pe­ri­ence.

Guests will start a catered trip un­der the lead­er­ship of the chef team with both ex­pe­ri­ence and cre­ativ­ity. Ra­mon Turmo, the ex­ec­u­tive chef has worked in lux­u­ri­ous ho­tels and a Miche­lin-starred res­tau­rant, Deng Wei­wen, the ex­ec­u­tive Chi­nese chef has been spe­cial­iz­ing in Hong Kong-Ma­cao and Guang­dong meals for 40 years, Michele Ten­zone, the chef of Ital­ian res­tau­rant who’s worked in seven Miche­lin-starred restau­rants. All have pre­pared the won­der­ful lux­ury of taste for food con­nois­seurs.

Each room is equipped with an elec­tric hy­draulic mas­sage couch from Liv­ing Earth. By nour­ish­ing the com­pact fa­cial skin, re­vi­tal­iz­ing phys­i­cal en­ergy or care­fully nurs­ing the hand, feet and hair, Irid­ium Spa aims to cus­tom­ize the senses and re­vi­tal­ize the body and mind. Its specials in­clude a Bloody Marry spa pack­age, Chakra test­ing mas­sage and V fa­cial nurs­ing to cre­ate di­ver­si­fied selec­tions for the guests.
