PARK CITY -- From New York to Beijing to Bora Bora, St. Regis resorts are considered top-quality, luxury accommodations. The company's newest location is right up Parley's Canyon.
"Everything is custom-made for St. Regis. The window coverings, furnishings are designed to make the suite flow," said Stephanie Fischer, spokeswoman for St. Regis.
That gives you an idea of what the rest of the 181 rooms will look like when they're complete. Crews are working around the clock to get this new resort and open by October.
The project's developer, Stan Castleton, says besides bringing jobs to Utah, this resort will bring a level of luxury Utah has never seen.
"Every floor will have a butler to cater to the guests. Regardless of what their needs are, they'll try to deal with it," Castleton said.
There are 181 guest rooms, all for sale; 70 percent of which are already sold. The idea is the owner will allow St. Regis to rent out their rooms.
When the resort is complete, guests will enjoy one of the largest spas in the state and a funicular that will transport guests upon arrival to the upper resort levels.
A celebrity chef is also opening a restaurant here. "Our chef is Jean-Georges, a world-reknown chef, and [he] loves to ski!" Castleton said.
The price to own this luxury: The one bedroom suite costs $1.5 million; the bigger suites go up to $4 million.
If you don't have millions to buy, you can rent the rooms. During peak seasons, they go for upwards of $1,000 a night; off-season, they're around $300 a night.
