Starwood Hotels & Resorts has launched its luxury St Regis brand in India, with the opening of a new property in Mumbai.
The former Palladium Hotel has been rebranded and relaunched as the St Regis Mumbai, in a move that marks the brand’s debut not only in India, but in the entire South Asia region.
“The introduction of St Regis to India marks a significant milestone for the brand’s expansion in South Asia, and Mumbai displays a robust demand for high-end hospitality from this increasingly affluent region,” said Dilip Puri, Starwood’s managing director for India.
“We are uniquely positioned to cater to the needs of a new generation of luxury travellers, offering an enriching experience informed by the brand’s legacy.”
Located in the Lower Parel area of the city, less than half an hour’s drive from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, the 38-storey hotel features 386 rooms and suites, all with St Regis’ butler service.
Facilities at the property include five restaurants, a club lounge, three bars, a 25-metre outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre and a spa with nine treatment rooms. And for the MICE market, the hotel will feature more than 5,200m² of event space, including a 4,200m² ballroom.
The St Regis Mumbai will join a growing portfolio of Starwood hotels in India. The company currently operates 43 hotels in the country, with 37 more in the pipeline. In addition to the St Regis Mumbai, new hotels opening in the next two years will include the W Retreat & Spa Goa, Westin Kolkata, Sheraton Hyderabad, Le Meridien Nagpur and Aloft New Delhi Aerocity.
