In a coup for Melbourne, local developer Century Group Aus has secured Australia’s first hotel under the renowned luxury St. Regis Hotels & Resorts brand to open at Flinders Bank in the CBD.
One of the world’s most revered and prestigious hotel brands, St. Regis is known for the legendary St. Regis butler service, which provides each guest with highly attentive personal service, and for its refined food and beverage experiences, born out of New York City where St. Regis pioneered the Bloody Mary.
It operates luxury getaways in some of the world’s most enticing locations including Bora Bora, Bali, Mauritius and the Maldives and will call Melbourne home in 2022.
With interiors created by world-leading hotel design studio Chada, The St. Regis Melbourne will offer 168 luxury rooms overlooking either the Yarra River or CBD skyline, including a range of specialty suites fit for presidents, sheikhs and other VVIPs.
The St. Regis Melbourne’s distinct luxury design is uncompromising in its details, utilising the best materials and facilitating a thoughtful guest experience, which can include anything from drinks upon arrival to unpacking services.
The St. Regis Melbourne will feature in Tower Two of the $800 million triple-tower Flinders Bank project. Flinders Bank will transform the city’s former Convention Centre site into a luxury destination, comprising 650 apartments, 168 five-star hotel rooms and 2,100 square metres of retail. Designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects, it will also add a vibrant pedestrian precinct and plaza to Siddeley Street, to feature art elements, contributing to the city’s established cultural scene.
The project’s first two towers have commenced selling, with a strong interest among owner-occupiers drawn to Flinders Bank’s never-to-be-built-out views that overlook the Yarra River and the view down to Port Phillip Bay, with many more apartments boasting outlooks to the twinkling CBD skyline.
Residents of Tower Two, which will house The St. Regis Melbourne, will have an opportunity to enjoy the luxury brand’s exceptional pool, sauna and sundeck by purchasing a Marriott Club membership.
This is in addition to a plethora of exclusive residential amenities already on offer including a gym, extensive lounge, wine room and various other intimate and surprising spaces in which to relax and recharge.
Residents of Tower One also have access to their own separate and sophisticated lifestyle facilities including a gym, pool and wine room – plus much more.
St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is one of the world’s fastest-growing luxury brands, more than doubling its footprint in recent years. There are currently more than 40 St. Regis branded hotels open worldwide.
The St. Regis Melbourne will be set within the 33 levels of Flinders Bank’s second tower, with hotel rooms planned for levels 2 to 11. Residential apartments will comprise the remainder of the building.
Flinders Bank is expected to commence construction in 2019, with completion anticipated in 2022.
