Regent Hotels: harmony between East’s minimalism and West’s elegance

Update: May, 07/2018 - 15:06

Combining the essence of minimalism and cosiness of Eastern culture and the “unique” thinking and elegance of Western culture, Regent Hotels and Resorts features among the world’s best luxury hotels.

“The only thing we specialise in is luxury, and the only thing our hotels have in common is the fact that they are all unique.”

– Robert H. Burns, founder of Regent Hotels

Elegant and unique design
The smoke-free industry (hospitality industry) witnesses the dominance of European and American corporations, with some of the world’s most expensive hotel brands.

Of this, Regent Hotels and Resorts boasts high-quality service featuring the cozy characteristic of the Eastern culture. The chain of hotels was founded in 1970 by Robert H. Burnsand and was later recognised internationally with the launch of Regent Hong Kong in 1980.

Recently, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), the “king” of international resorts, announced the acquisition of a 51 per cent stake in Regent Hotels and Resorts. Accordingly, Regent Hotels & Resorts officially became the highest brand in the hotel brand system of this corporation.

Regent Singapore is among the top choices of visitors in the island country.

At Regent, the concept of subtlety is pushed to the highest level, be it the location, surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, or the minimalist and modern design, meticulous in every small detail. For example, at Regent Residences Phu Quoc, BIM Group has put a brilliant multicoloured Opal gemstone installation that changes color with different lighting, symbolising hope, faith and success. With its minimalist design, the gemstone awakens a feeling of closeness with nature.

Personalised services featuring Western elegance
Besides the minimalist style of design, Regent Hotels offers “personalised” services, which cater to the needs of each customer.

Moreover, the sophistication in the hotel’s business sense is evident in its recognition of the desires of the elite class. The five-fixture bathroom (meaning bathtub, walk-in shower, separate toilet, and two sinks) in Regent Chongqing has been recognised as one of the most unique and luxurious designs in the world. Now, Regent Residences Phu Quoc also offers this experience to its customers.

Ralf Ohletz, president of design and concepts at Regent Hotels and Resorts, said: “We are the first hotel group to recognise the importance of a spacious and multi-functional bathroom, pioneering the concept that visitors will spend more time in the bathroom than in the bedroom. We are also the first hotel brand to offer guests a great experience of a private swimming pool within the enclosed spaces of luxury resort villas.”

On the other hand, Regent understands how private space affects the health, mood and quality of life of each guest. Therefore, although the overall design is always cosy and minimalist, the sophistication in each detail is the soul of the six-star hotel brand.

Especially, At Regent Residences Phu Quoc, each room is equipped with a private pool and a subtly decorated bar under the bed linen featured Regent brand. All villas are sea-facing, offering guests a personal space with high-level facilities and relaxing atmosphere while enjoying their holidays.

The Regent brand has achieved many milestones. In 1990, Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel was chosen to shoot the Hollywood film, Pretty Woman. In 1993 and 1995, pop star Michael Jackson stayed at Regent Taipei. Since then, Regent has hosted many international celebrities, including Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Cindy Crawford, Tom Cruise, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Elton John, Michael Jordan, Lang Lang, Sophie Marceau, Lionel Richie and Keanu Reeves. Most recently, pop singer Lady Gaga visited and shopped at Regent Galleria.

The trust of guests is proof of Regent’s hospitality, combined with world-class luxury amenities catering to the needs of every customer. The feeling of absolute satisfaction not only comes from the luxury amenities, but more importantly, from the sophistication services, caring each individual’s tastes.

Another impressive feature is the high quality of personalised house-keeping service, at the disposal of VIP guests for 24 hours when staying in the Regent system.
