News - St Regis Osaka, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai open

Luxury hotels continue to pop up in Asia. A new St. Regis has just opened in the heart of Osaka’s central business district (location, location). The 160 room hotel features Kawashima silk wall coverings and Kyoto silk bedding, two restaurants (the signature Rue D’or, a classic French bistro, and La Veduta with rustic Italian cuisine) and a signature Remède Spa (love the smell of their products!). Meanwhile, a Waldorf Astoria just opened quietly in Shanghai, with just a few suites available for now. A white, soothing and elegant theme dominates the interior décor, and the architects had done a great job at resurrection the original long bar in the 100-year old heritage building, based on archived pictures.
