RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico, Dec. 20, 2018 — The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort today announced the highly anticipated reopening of the resort, signaling a return of luxury hospitality in the beloved destination. Following an extensive $60 million renovation, the property unveils a new dimension of tropical luxury and a contemporary aesthetic seen in every guestroom and suite, Casa Grande, the heart of the resort where guests will enjoy The St. Regis Bar and Paros, the seaside pool and esplanade, and the Iridium Spa.
"We are thrilled to welcome travelers from around the globe back to The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort this holiday season and beyond," said José Torres, General Manager of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort. "The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort's transformation has set the stage for the next generation of luxury travelers to the destination."
Inspired by the surrounding sea, sand and foliage, the 139 refurbished rooms and suites boast a light, modern and organic aesthetic in a contemporary and residential setting. The renovation is also inclusive of Casa Grande, which welcomes guests upon arrival and is home to Paros, the resort's signature fine-dining restaurant, and the St. Regis Bar. Anchored by The Long Awaited Voyage, a mural by Puerto Rican artist Arnaldo Roche Rabell that has been restored following the storms hangs above The St. Regis Bar. The two-story building is a warm, lively and glamorous gathering space that overlooks the ocean and invites guests to simply relax or experience the brand's champagne sabering ritual.
The property also features two private bird sanctuaries, an on-site "green team" led by a marine biologist, four deco turf tennis courts, a St. Regis Kids Club, an ocean-front golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and numerous trails for biking, walking and running all nestled under the canopy of the tropical setting. Additionally, available through a new collaboration with Aquavento Water Sports, the resort offers equipment for watersports such as surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing and fishing in any of the surrounding lakes.
For guests interested in volunteer opportunities and activities that give back to the community and destination, the property is working in collaboration with the Bahia Beach Resort Golf Club and its non-profit organization Alma de Bahia on several initiatives to support the affected communities in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort is proud to offer these opportunities and assist those who were impacted by the storms.
The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort has also announced the new $85 million beachfront, ultra-luxury residential development, Ocean Drive, as well as The Atlantic Drive Estates and plans for a resort expansion. Additionally, The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort announces plans for a $30 million expansion to the resort. Occupying a secluded stretch of land adjacent to the current guest room accommodations, the expansion will add 60 oceanfront rooms to the hotel's inventory.
