British actress Gemma Chan was among celebrities and socialites who attended the opening of The St. Regis Hong Kong on April 11.
Chan is already familiar with the St. Regis brand, which is part of Marriott International, Inc. During her role in Crazy Rich Asians, her character Astrid Teo was featured in a scene located at the Astor Bar at the St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, which at the time had been turned into a jewelry store.
“I am honored to be part of this special Midnight Supper event celebrating the first St. Regis hotel opening in Hong Kong and to have the chance to have a firsthand experience of its exceptional service,” said Chan in a statement.
Had an incredible few days in Hong Kong at the grand opening of the @StRegisHK. Honoured to be their first guest and it's been even more special to be back here with my mum and dad for the first time since I was a child.

Curated by award-winning French chef Olivier Elzer, the Midnight Supper featured a signature menu of beef jelly and horseradish water cress emulsion, poached Brittany blue lobster with hazelnut butter and French milk-fed veal fillet cooked in lime-tree.
The St. Regis Hong Kong itself was designed by André Fu, who envisioned a Hong Kong mansion that blended the brand's elegance and the territory's diverse architecture and culture. In addition to 129 rooms and suites that come with St. Regis butler service, the property also boasts L’Envol French and Rùn Chinese restaurants as well as The Drawing Room, which caters to afternoon tea and live jazz music fans.
