Starwood’s ultra-luxurious iconic brand, the first St. Regis Resort to open at the Unesco First World Geopark, Langkawi has won the coveted international property awards 2016-2017.

Just months after its opening, the St. Regis Langkawi was honoured with two awards, the ‘Best Hotel Interior Asia Pacific’ and ‘Best International Hotel Interior’.

The resort general manager Thomas Schwall was delighted with the good news as the young hotel competed against the best property professionals across the world.

“We are immensely pleased to be awarded two prestigious titles. This demonstrates our continued commitment in providing product excellence, and distinct service to complement it,” he said.

The international property awards are recognised as the highest mark of excellence for property professionals.

Judged by an independent panel of 70 industry experts, the criteria are impeccable design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.

The awards are in their 24th year and are the region’s largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised property awards.

It has been a stellar nine months of accolades since the grand opening as The St. Regis Langkawi in April, 2016.

In addition to the international property awards, The St. Regis Langkawi is also the proud recipient of the Condé Nast 2017 Award for Excellence – Best for Families.

Award winners are chosen based on unwavering commitment to excellence.

This mark of quality is evaluated and voted for by discerning consumers and travel industry experts.

The awards showcase only the very best hotels and resorts worldwide that continue to redefine luxury standards.

The resort also took home the ‘Best Honeymoon Hotel 2016’ by Hotel Wedding magazine and the ‘Wellness Travel Country Award 2016’ by Spafinder Wellness.

The St. Regis Langkawi’s setting is in a natural paradise with a 600 meter long beach with white sands which opens up to the Andaman Sea.

This is the first all-suite luxury resort in the region, boasting 85 appointed suites and 4 private over-water villas with unobstructed views of the sea.

The resort is own owned by Integrated Nautical Resort Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between Rajawali Group and the Finance Ministry.
