When the wealthy businessman John Jacob Astor IV built the iconic French-style St. Regis Hotel in New York City as a companion to the Waldorf Astoria in 1904, he further defined the archetype of a modern luxury hotel. After Astor's son inherited the hotel when his father died in the sinking of the Titanic, he sold the property and it changed hands several times over the last century.

When constructing the St Regis Bal Harbour, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. in conjunction with Related Group and Sieger Suarez Architecture infused luxury that is synonymous with the St. Regis brand with the resort lifestyle that is characteristic of Miami coastal living.

The St. Regis name has always attracted a wide array of celebrities and high profile residents, so it is no surprise to find heads of industry, music and film celebrities, and sports celebrities at St. Regis. In fact, tennis superstars Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf were one of the first residents to move in upon opening.
The ultra-luxurious interiors of the residences at St. Regis Bal Harbour include European-style, chefs' kitchens with signature appliances and smart home technology. Marble flooring enhances the wet areas of the home, as well as bathrooms with granite countertops, designer faucets, whirlpool tubs, and enclosed glass showers.
St. Regis Bal Harbour residents have access to the amenities that are part of the St. Regis Hotel Bal Harbour, making for a true South Florida resort lifestyle. The hotel has multiple bars and lounges and an upscale Greek restaurant. Two heated swimming pools are nestled on the oceanfront with residential areas for owners and their guests. Staying true to the elite amenities that are associated with the St. Regis name, owners also enjoy personal chefs, 24-hour dining service, personal chauffeurs, and personal shopping service. Residents also have their own private entrance and lobby with common spaces designed by world-renowned architectural firm Yabu Pushelberg.

Located directly across from St. Regis, residents who want to do some shopping can have the resort pick up their bags for them.
