The all day dining restaurant features a casual, residential open kitchen concept. Rustic wooden tables display delicious hot dishes as well as fresh iced sides. Painted built-in cabinetry evokes the feeling of the warm patina of many years of culinary delites having been prepared for the discerning St. Regis guest’s palette. Residential-styled display kitchen, reach-in refrigerators, and collections of china and cookbooks create a relaxed comfortable environment with a sense of sophistication. The active sun-lit space spills out onto an outdoor terrace that accommodates al fresco dining with a view of the pool and sea beyond. In the evening, softly lit waterfalls cascade into serene pools surrounding guests dining by candle-light seated in elegant teak chairs.
This social, intimate wine cellar envelopes guests in a rustic, cluster of grotto-like environments that are lined with wine storage racks and glass displays. Super-scale tailored wing back chair groupings allow guests some privacy, while at the same time being in the spot-light. Sommeliers can escort guests into private tasting rooms for more personal service. Ornate glass pendant fixtures set into a brick-lined vaulted ceiling softly illuminate a communal tasting table and embossed leather club chair groupings. A diffused glass window wall allows the warm colors of the sunset to enter the space and set the tone for another memorable evening.
An elegant and casual Chinese restaurant with a fresh contemporary feel. Laquered woodwork on column cladding and vertical pillars that recess into the ceiling, pendant lights with square linen shades and bronze detailing, a crisp sandstone floor all share in telling the nautical story of this space which overlooks the marina. Elegant chairs upholstered in a range of citrus colored textured fabrics reflect the local flora and fauna. Stately private dining rooms with views out to the marina provide the ambiance and service worthy of the St. Regis guest.
This distinct and secluded restaurant is made up of a small enclave of pavillions –The Bar, The Restaurant, and The Private Dining Room-each connected by covered walkways and outdoor terraces. The warm and rustic interior environments are reminiscent of a home in a European seaside village. Painted plaster walls, wide wood plank flooring and white-washed beamed ceilings provide a quaint and familiar surround for this active beachfront bar and restaurant. Oysters displayed in tiered silver trays top the bar and encourage guests to stay and enjoy a champagne. The fresh seafood display and open kitchen in the restaurant provide “the stage” for the active selection and preparation process put on by the chefs and servers. An casual collection of painted chairs, iron light fittings and stone tabletops all provide the homey comfort for informal daytime dining as well as a casual elegant dinner.
Guestroom and Villas
As the discerning St. Regis guest steps down the corridor preparing for his guestroom experience, their senses are evoked by subtle sea faring details that allow them to feel as if journeying through a luxurious ocean liner.
Fixtures that pay homage to maritime lanterns cast light that dances across the finely finished woven woodwork detail that warms the corridor while adding further depth to the two tone flooring of light stone and rich wood.
Upon entering the 65sq meter guestroom, generous in volume and space, they are greeted by a collection of fine furnishings and sophisticated artifacts evoking his sense of worldly travel. Rich, high gloss finishes, polished metal and yacht-like detailing supported by the use of natural materials reflect the region’s unique local surroundings, providing a sense of place.
Hand-tufted, shell-inspired carpet leads the guest towards the place he will rest after a long day of exploration, discovery and bespoke service. The bed is framed by a beautiful headboard consisting of hand woven silk- a luxurious back-drop- to a casually elegant guest suite. Creamy neutral textured fabrics are contrasted by local raw silks and softly colored and patterned accents add dimension to the room.
Views of the sea, marina and surrounding mangroves and pools set the mood as guests settle into his sanctuary of relaxation. Elements of nautical whimsy such as yacht cleats for hanging clothing to be pressed inside the wood finished butler pass-through add character while the guest’s every expectation is exceeded in true St. Regis fashion.
This guestroom truly defines ‘relaxed luxury’ for the guest as they enter the bathroom to be greeted by a spa-like experience. The “woven” stone tiles can be found throughout supported by onyx vanity tops and Macore wood, also local to the region. A generously sized shower provides stunning views and is fitted out with a state of the art floor drain that supports the clean line design of the guestroom. The guest can take in the scent of the hand placed botanicals while relaxing in his contemporary soaking tub with views out to his private terrace and sea.
The St. Regis guest’s busy lifestyle is taken into consideration with the design and layout of the room as state of the art technology is readily – yet discreetly available to him, designed in a sleek and sophisticated manner. He will feel as comfortable enjoying an exquisite in-room meal as he would working on his laptop on seating designed with his multi-faceted needs in mind.
