Inside, 127 rooms and suites are complemented by careful elements and a personalized St. Regis Butler Service, providing a level of unmatched service. For food and beverage options, two Michelin-starred restaurants offer sumptuous bites and decadent sips: the two-Michelin-starred French restaurant L’Envol, helmed by Chef Olivier Elzer; and the one-Michelin-starred restaurant named Rùn Chinese, led by Chef Hung Chi-Kwong.
