Puerto Rico’s St. Regis Bahia Beach luxury resort to reopen Oct. 29
SAN JUAN – The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico announced that the property is slated to open on Oct. 29, following a $60 million renovation that includes the guestrooms, bar, restaurant, pool, esplanade, spa and golf course.
The resort, which is located on 483 acres between the El Yunque National Forest and Espíritu Santo River State Preserve is the only Gold-certified Audubon Signature Sanctuary in Puerto Rico as well as rated AAA Five Diamond.
The 139 refurbished rooms and suites were designed by Puerto Rican designer Nono Maldonado together with Hersch Bedner Associates of San Francisco.
The resort also announced an $85 million “beachfront, ultra-luxury residential development,” Ocean Drive, as well as the Atlantic Drive Estates, and is planning a larger expansion.
Ocean Drive will comprise 30 three- and four-bedroom residences and penthouse models ranging in size from 3,379 to 4,048 square feet in three beachfront buildings. The first is under development and is expected to be completed by June 2019, when residents will begin to enjoy its “five-star hotel services and amenities.”
Created by SB Architects of Miami and Hersch Bedner Associates of San Francisco, the design of each residence “features innovatively designed living areas,” large beachfront terraces with outdoor bars and kitchens, and private elevator access.
In addition, the resort is slated to debut the Atlantic Drive Estates, which may be custom-designed in beachfront sites and golf and lake locations.
St. Regis Bahia Beach also announced plans for a $30 million expansion to add 60 oceanfront rooms that will be “family-friendly and flexible.”
“The St. Regis Bahia Beach has always been an incredibly beautiful resort. With the new upgrades, it will be even more remarkable than it was before the 2017 hurricanes,” owner John Paulson said in the announcing release.
