St. Regis Hotels & Resorts Celebrates the Opening of
The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort & Residences

STAMFORD, Conn.-- Jan. 20, 2012-- Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) today announces the opening of the highly anticipated St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort & Residences, as St. Regis nearly triples its global portfolio in just five years. With this milestone, Starwood continues to lengthen its lead in luxury hospitality, with nearly 150 luxury hotels under its St. Regis, Luxury Collection and W Hotel brands, offering guests and residents exceptional levels of service and luxury experiences in a wide range of destinations around the world. St. Regis will continue its dynamic global growth with the upcoming openings of The St. Regis Doha, The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi and The St. Regis Mauritius Resort, in addition to the debut of the newly renovated St. Regis Aspen Resort this year.

Celebrated for its dedication to refined elegance at the world’s best addresses, the debut of The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort in the affluent Bal Harbour enclave heightens the appeal of this coveted international destination: at once a secluded escape with unrivaled amenities as well as a destination at the intersection of art, design and fashion all within reach of the vibrant energy of Miami Beach.

“With its incredible array of rich amenities and proximity to Miami Beach, Bal Harbour has long called for a world-class resort and the arrival of The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort now offers an ideal destination for affluent global travelers,” says Paul James, Global Brand Leader for St. Regis and The Luxury Collection. “With refined elegance infused throughout, this resort offers a return to glamour and we believe it is a befitting debut for St. Regis in this important international gateway city.”

The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort offers guests a new dimension of bespoke luxury with 243 guest rooms and suites and 245 private residences, all offering expansive private balconies with ocean views, in three glass towers rising 27 stories above a sprawling stretch of beach. With exquisite design by world renowned interiors firm Yabu Pushelberg, the resort features intricate details including one-of-a-kind West African Movinque wood and Chinese God Flower Stone marble commissioned exclusively for the resort from a private quarry. The resort and residences also offer signature St. Regis Butler Service, a Remède Spa and a world class dining experience inspired by Jean-Georges at J&G Grill®.

St. Regis’ commitment to art and design is brought to life at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort which showcases works throughout the property from Sawada Hirotoshi, Candida Hofer and Miami-based artist Santiago Rubino, who was commissioned to create a vibrant and whimsical mural as the focal point for the bar. The mural is symbolic of the brand’s evolution: a modern iteration of the iconic King Cole Mural at The St. Regis New York, commissioned by St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor IV.

Exquisite Culinary Experiences

J&G Grill® is The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort’s signature restaurant conceived by world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Featuring the exquisite cuisine of this international star, J&G Grill at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort sets new standards for Bal Harbour as a world-class dining destination.

The restaurant stays true to the chef’s concept of blending Asian and French cuisine, with a selection of dishes from his restaurants around the world. A contemporary bar and grill set in a convivial atmosphere, J&G Grill is a unique dining experience where guests, residents and locals can enjoy the highest quality meats and freshest fish, vegetables and fruit from the local market. Additionally, a remarkable, temperature-controlled Wine Vault will house one of the largest wine collections in South Florida showcasing 2,500 bottles of wine.

The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort also features an oceanfront grill for casual dining called Fresco focused on South American-influenced cuisine, as well as Atlantico, a breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant, with Mediterranean influence and an emphasis on seafood. Poolside cabana and beach services complement the resort’s private beach and pools, including an adults-only pool area with exclusive day cabanas.
