The luxurious new St. Regis hotel and residences in the Jordanian capital are now under construction in the heart of Amman’s city center. The project’s three towers will include one designated for the hotel’s 260 guest rooms and suites, as well as four restaurants, a cafe, pool areas, spa and parking. The second and third towers will feature 79 luxurious residences, representing some of the finest residences available in Jordan.
Topping the residential towers are an exclusive collection of expansive “sky villas,” comprising five-bedroom homes on two levels with double height balcony loggias framing beautiful views of the Abdoun neighborhood. Internationally-recognized architecture firm Perkins Eastman is responsible for the project’s distinctive design, while Forrest Perkins is leading the interiors.
Sprawling out over 675 square meters on two levels, the sky villas truly feel like a home in the sky. One enters into a generous entry foyer that doubles as a sitting room with a luxurious interior private staircase that lends a dramatic yet domestic touch. The entry sitting area flows directly into a corner living room for formal entertaining that is wrapped in a dramatic covered balcony.
The lower level also includes a large dining and family/media room, as well as an oversized kitchen with large outdoor loggia suitable for dining al fresco and can accommodate dinner parties for up to 12 guests. An additional staff suite, pantry and utility room are also on this level, with direct access to a separate service entrance.
Upstairs, a second family room allows for comfortable private family moments with its own pantry, and serves as the gateway to the home’s five bedrooms. The largest is the master suite, complete with a vast wall of windows framing a generous bedroom with ample closets and a master bathroom with double sinks, large shower, bathtub and water closet with bidet. Four additional bedroom suites, each with their own closets and four-fixture bathrooms are also located on this level.
Scheduled for completion in early- to mid-2015, the Residences at the St. Regis Amman are destined to become one of the best hotel-residential opportunities in the Middle East. For those considering a free-standing home but looking for the ultimate in security, exclusivity and luxury services and amenities, a sky villa serviced and managed by St. Regis is certainly a compelling choice.
