BAL HARBOUR, FL—St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has received a $35-million investment in The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort from its owner, Al Rayyan Tourism Investment Company (ARTIC). The hotel plans to add a Greek-inspired restaurant; three expansive, four-bedroom suites; and a reimagined and expanded lobby lounge.
Set to be completed before the end of 2016, the enhancements follow on the heels of the recent opening of the gourmet BH Burger Bar, the new St. Regis Bar & Sushi Lounge, as well as the debut of the Caroline Room, a 1,800-sq.-ft. private events space.
With Greek native and Executive Chef Anastasios Chasekioglou at the helm, The St. Regis Bal Harbour will open Atlantikós restaurant this month. Each night will commence with a traditional Greek plate-smashing ritual, and fresh herbs—oregano, rosemary and thyme—will be available on every table for guests to add to dishes. Atlantikós will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
Three new Signature Suites, each with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, opened in June. Each suite has two master bedrooms with en suite, five-fixture marble bathrooms, walk-in closets and balconies. Two additional bedrooms with queen-sized beds are in the suite. The main living room opens to a kitchen with a dining table that seats eight, and the second living room includes a pullout sofa bed. Each suite offers four 210-sq.-ft. balconies with ocean views.
In addition, the hotel’s new lobby lounge will offer light fare from nearby La Gourmandise. The design of the lobby space will have a contemporary glass house framework with natural light.
