Following the destruction caused by 2017’s hurricanes, the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico is excitedly announced a reopening date of October 29, 2018.
The resort has undergone an extensive $60 million (£45m) renovation which includes every guestroom and suite. The renovation also encompasses the Plantation House – the heart of the resort where you find The St. Regis Bar and the property’s signature restaurant – the seaside pool and esplanade, the spa, and the ocean-front golf course.
Additionally, The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort will reveal a new $85 million (£63m) beachfront, ultra-luxury residential development, Ocean Drive, as well as The Atlantic Drive Estates and plans for a resort expansion.
“The St. Regis Bahia Beach has always been an incredibly beautiful resort,” said owner John Paulson, Paulson & Co. “With the new upgrades, it will be even more remarkable than it was before the 2017 hurricanes.”
The 139 refurbished rooms and suites have been designed by celebrated Puerto Rican designer Nono Maldonado together with internationally renowned Hirsch Bedner Associates of San Francisco. Inspired by the surrounding sea, sand and foliage, they each boast a light, modern and organic aesthetic with ocean and lush tropical garden views.
The modern, light-centric design is also seen in the Plantation House, which will greet guest upon arrival and is home to the resort’s signature fine-dining restaurant and St. Regis Bar.
The renovated seaside pool and Esplanade will offer a casual dining restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating in addition to luxurious poolside cabanas and lounge chairs.
A plush new spa will debut as The Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort when the property opens.
All structures have been built below the tree line, affording spectacular and unspoiled views along the resort’s two-mile stretch of private beach. Here you’ll find comfortable lounge chairs, umbrellas and beach service, as well as private Beach Front Cabanas featuring signature St. Regis service for ultimate luxury.
Along with numerous trails for biking, walking and running, water sports such as surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and fishing will also be on offer to guests.
The Ocean Drive Residences – an $85 million beachfront, ultra-luxury residential development- will also be unveiled in October. Comprising of 30 luxurious condominium residences in three beachfront buildings, The Ocean Drive Beachfront Residences at The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort will offer three- and four-bedroom residences and penthouse models ranging in size from 3,379 to 4,048 square feet of interior space.
