Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has reached a management agreement with Rajawali Property Group to open The St. Regis Jakarta and The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta.

Located on Jalan H.R. Rasuna Said, Kuninganin in South Jakarta, the hotel and residences will be part of a new mixed-use development, which will also feature a commercial office tower that will serve as the headquarters of Rajawali Property Group.

Expected to open in 2019, The St. Regis Jakarta and The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta are positioned as premium places for well-heeled travelers and residents.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific president Stephen Ho said: "The St. Regis Jakarta and The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta are a great testament to the growing wealth and appetite for luxury in Indonesia’s capital.

"We are delighted to foster our relationship with Rajawali Property Group by bringing the St. Regis brand’s bespoke service, contemporary design and refined elegance to the ever-bustling city of Jakarta."

Rajawali Property Group CEO Shirley Tan said: "Jakarta currently features some upscale residences that are located above or next to hotels, but few offer the heights of refinement tied to the St. Regis name. Today’s signing with Starwood is part of Rajawali’s greater residential strategy to develop a collection of truly branded residences with unique ownership privileges in Southeast Asia, including The Residences at The St. Regis Langkawi in 2016 and The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta in 2019."

The St. Regis Jakarta will offer 280 guestrooms and suites and will feature four restaurants, including an all-day dining venue, a fine dining restaurant, The Deli, and the signature St. Regis bar.

For meetings and events, the hotel will offer expansive function space that spans 3,600m2.

Besides, it will feature spa with six treatment rooms, a fitness centre and a swimming pool.

To further enhance the guest experience, The St. Regis Jakarta will provide signature St. Regis Butler Service, offering guests 24-hour anticipatory service that customizes each stay to specific needs, tastes and preferences, allowing guests to savor the rarest luxuries of all time.

The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta will set new standards for luxury living in Jakarta. Located in a separate tower adjacent to the hotel, the 164 branded residences will offer homeowners and investors refined luxury and privacy.

The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta will feature three types of apartments: a three-bedroom Sky Residence occupying 355 to 373m2; the Sky Villa, a 750m2, four-bedroom unit; and the Sky Palace, featuring over 1,250m2.

Residents will avail concierge service, a multi-function room and wine room, private garden pool, private dining and library lounge, fitness centre and dedicated car parking space.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts acquisition and development for Asia Pacific senior vice president Rajit Sukumaran said:"Starwood is pleased to expand its portfolio of St. Regis residences in Asia Pacific, as we see strong continued growth opportunities in this area.

"The Residences at The St. Regis Jakarta will cater to the lifestyle needs of the increasingly affluent and appeal to luxury property investors, while remaining deeply rooted in St. Regis’ distinctive legacy of uncompromising elegance and the ability to provide the finest experiences imaginable."
