GCC travellers have been keenly eyeing Asia for their Eid Al Adha holidays this year, with destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore proving popular, according to St. Regis Hotels and Resorts.
Those travelling from the GCC benefit from non-stop air connectivity, while Southeast Asian destinations offer an impressive, high-quality selection of Halal food options and family-friendly entertainment.
Director, St. Regis Hotels and Resorts – Asia Pacific, Fay-Linn Yeoh highlighted the fact that visitors from the Gulf region are discerning and yearn for personalised service and luxurious accommodation, which is only the start of their demands.
“No hotelier offers guests traditional luxury hospitality quite like the St. Regis,” remarked Yeoh.
“Trained in the British tradition, our butlers provide ever-present, yet unobtrusive service while anticipating guest needs and customising each guest’s stay according to their specific tastes and preferences. From a perfectly pressed suit to a favourite book at hand, no request is too small or unattainable.”
Malaysia stands among the top most popular Southeast Asian destinations for GCC travellers. St. Regis Hotels and Resorts boasts two stunning properties in this country: its very first Malaysian location, The St. Regis Langkawi and The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, ideal for both leisure and business travellers.
Meanwhile, the high-end hotel group also boasts tempting options in Bali. Located on the beachfront at the secluded enclave of Nusa Dua, The St. Regis Bali Resort is home to lush gardens, inviting pools, a private beach and a swimmable lagoon of clear blue saltwater, with water activities ranging from snorkelling to kite surfing.
Moving on to Thailand, which now strongly caters to Muslim tourists, Bangkok has also proven to be an all-time popular hot spot among Gulf visitors. The St. Regis Bangkok, is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year and is promoting special room packages such as the ‘Royal Five Year Anniversary’ and the ‘Five Year Anniversary’ package’, complemented by signature St. Regis rituals and traditions.
Finally, Singapore is also a hub for both business and leisure travel, and over the past few years, the city has attracted a healthy frequency of tourists hailing from wealthy Gulf states, thanks to its world-class shopping variety and ultramodern cityscape.
Standing in the centre of the city’s premier shopping district, with the world-class shopping of Orchard Road and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Singapore Botanic Gardens, The St. Regis Singapore is the ideal residence for the discerning luxury GCC traveller. The property guarantees ultimate personalisation, elegance and uncompromised guest experiences.
