They are already setting a new standard for luxury living in Thailand, and are ideally positioned to cater to the city’s influential leaders as well as world travelers.

Moreover, The Residences have received numerous industry accolades, including The Best Condo Development Bangkok & Best Condo Development Thailand at the prestigious Thailand Property Awards last month.

Rising from the 25th to the 45th floors of a 47-story building, and designed by leading New York-based Brennan Beer Gorman Architects, The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok is destined to become one of the city skyline’s defining silhouettes. The Residences feature 53 exclusive St. Regis branded homes – a first for the Thailand and IndoChina region – ranging from approximately 320 to 920 square meters and including three- and four-bedroom units, deluxe penthouses and duplex penthouses with private pools.

The prices of the residences range from THB69M to THB218M.

The Residences feature exquisite interior design by Brennan Beer Gorman Monk Interiors that translates a century of glamour and tradition into regionally-inspired timeless elegance. Perfectly designed for embellishment, the thoughtfully-considered interiors offer clean palettes, natural teak woods, Turkish Marfil and Italian Carrera marble stone floors, fully fitted bathrooms, Pogen Pohl kitchens and Caesar Stone Quartz counters complementing floor-to-ceiling windows with commanding views of downtown Bangkok.

In addition, owners can take advantage of a unique partnership between Minor International and the renowned Lotus Arts de Vivre to accent their residences with unique, Thai-inspired objets d’arts. The extraordinary, one-of-a-kind pieces incorporate beautiful and sumptuous materials from the region, such as rubies, Basra pearls, gold, jade, emeralds, Liana Wood, red lacquer. Distinctive home accents and accessories from Lotus Arts de Vivre are already incorporated into the interiors of the show residences, and will be available first to Residence owners before being released on the market. Minor is also partnering with Infine Design, one of the leading interior designers in Thailand, to create one of the show residences. Infine Design services will also be available to Residence owners at competitive rates as they design their beautiful homes.

The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok owners will have access to the complete suite of amenities and uncompromising services at the adjoining St. Regis Bangkok Hotel, opening in March, 2010.

The renowned St. Regis Butler Service offers unparalleled round-the-clock personal attention to every residence owner.
