The original St. Regis New York was inaugurated over one hundred years ago. Since then, the St. Regis brand has sought to offer an experience that goes beyond expectation. Positioned on the waterfront close to Palma, the fabulous five star St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort will play a host to an exclusive dinner for guests and owners during the Superyacht Cup. The hotel’s Michelin Star chef will prepare a Mediterranean summer selection of courses, highlighting the very best of Mallorca‘s fresh local produce.
The five Platinum Partner shipyards, Alloy Yachts, Holland Jachtbouw, Perini Navi, Royal Huisman and Vitters Shipyard will jointly host the Owner´s Dinner, which will be held on the bougainvillea-surrounded terraces overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
“This will be a very special evening, bringing the owners and their guests together with representatives from throughout the superyacht industry. We are delighted to have formed this important partnership with the St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort, a worldwide recognized premium brand with an outstanding reputation for quality and friendly service. The Superyacht Cup regatta has a reputation for creating a unique relaxed environment and this exceptional hotel is the perfect location to offer our guests the highest quality service and gastronomic experience while maintaining the informality and friendliness the regatta is so proud of”, explained Event Director Kate Branagh.
St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort will sponsor the racing on Saturday June 21st for both classes and their highly experienced outside catering and banqueting team will serve a collection of appetizing canapés for the Prize Giving Ceremony.
