The St Regis is without doubt a full 5* hotel. It has only been open a short time so everything has that brand new aura about it. The room was large and immaculate. It had every comfort
I was staying for both work and leisure and I feel it fulfilled my requirements for both. The room and free wifi afforded a good working environment with the massive pool deck and small private beach providing a beautiful facility for the weekend leisure element. The pool experience is good though not yet up to speed with competitor Four Seasons in respect of pool set up, personal attendance and pool "amenities" ie poolside complimentarytreats. Some staff training would easily address this. The spa facilities are to a very high standard.
There is a butler service which is complimentary yet have no fear that this is intrusive. My butler Francis (thankyou!) was discreet and sensed the degree to which I wanted (minimal) support. But I did thoroughly enjoy the excellent (English standard) tea served in my room - great when you are working!
I agree with other reviewers that this new hotel still has a few teething problems - nothing major - and my advice would be anything you notice please give feedback to Michael general manager or Krystal (front of house). They were kindness itself when I had a minor issue. My judgement of any hotel always being influenced by how well they respond to guest feedback. They were not found to be lacking in this respect.
As a woman travelling alone I was especially appreciative of the personal attention given by Brendan executive chef, who sensed my minor discomfort on the day the buffet breakfast was especially busy and stepped in to ensure I had everything I needed brought directly to me. That's what I call exceptional guest service.
It might be worth bearing in mind that this hotel is just outside the city which in itself is attractive - but the downside is that there are no local dining options. It is a case of taxi or dine in the hotel.
I used the hotel transport to and from the airport and though more expensive than a taxi it was fabulously efficient, reliable and comfortable with wonderful drivers. Worth every penny.
I would recommend this hotel and will most certainly return.
