St. Regis Macau,
Cotai Central

Macau, China

 

St. Regis brings its uber-opulence to Macao with a design that honors the city’s multicultural, maritime-oriented heritage.

Designers created a luxe environment that drew inspiration from the Chinese and Portuguese influences of its Asian locale, as well as the flag’s storied New York origins. Curved waves from the nearby Pearl River, a powerful, life-giving force that is the raison d’être for this diverse heritage, provided the visual link between past, present and future.

 
 
 The lobby’s sweeping staircase flaunts a dramatic air with illuminated amber, bronze and gold blown-glass strands hanging above as a shimmering allusion to ship sails billowing in the wind.

The Bar

One of the most striking installations within the hotel is the funky, kaleidoscopic mural behind the bar.  The layered, etched and painted backlit glass is stunning—a real jewel in the property.

The Manor

The fine dining restaurant feels understated, with a creamy gold palette enlivened by colorful artwork.

 
 Exquisite backlit ceiling panels with lacy, circular fretwork form a graceful counterpart to angular features, and give the space the feeling of having "natural light" in a room with no windows.

The Guest Rooms

A delicate palette with mother of pearl, soft leather and bird’s eye maple finishes embellishes the integrated headboards, punctuated by deep aquamarine accents that pay homage to the surrounding waters. The design team was challenged to use the existing architectural floor plate intended for a budget hotel, to create interiors that achieved the level of upscale luxury expected in the St. Regis hotel brand.

 
 The melding of cultures comes through, with Portuguese-inspired cushions and a tea cabinet with Asian ornamentation and lacquered panels.

 In the bathrooms, calcatta luna marble recalls the luminescence of pearls.
