Puerto Rico’s St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort completes US$60 m renovation
POSTED 03 Jan 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Puerto Rico has reopened following an extensive US$60m renovation that includes a new spa concept at the resort’s Iridium Spa.

The spa concept pays homage to the glamour of The St. Regis’ founding patroness, Caroline Astor, combined with a focus on the nature and culture of Puerto Rico.

The Iridium Spa offers a menu of customised and results-oriented treatments using local ingredients such as gold, coffee, tropical fruits and rum. The spa also features the latest personalised services with a Synergy Decanter Table, allowing guests to tailor their treatment by selecting essential oils and local herbs to create a custom blend of ingredients.

The spa includes relaxation areas, steam and sauna facilities, cold and hot plunge pools, ten treatment rooms, an exercise area and a fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Designed by Puerto Rican designer Nono Maldonado together with Hirsch Bedner Associates of San Francisco, and inspired by the surrounding sea, sand and foliage, the 139 refurbished bedrooms and suites at the resort feature a light, modern and organic aesthetic.

A colour palette of shades of whites and light blues is designed to complement ocean and lush tropical garden views.

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 within the tropical setting.

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 organisation Alma de Bahia on several initiatives to support the communities in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean affected by Hurricanes Maria and Irma in 2017, which caused an estimated 3,000 deaths on the island.

Owner John Paulson of Paulson & Co. said, “Today’s opening marks a momentous occasion for the hotel and the island following a challenging period after the 2017 hurricanes. With the renovated and contemporary guestrooms and amenities, it will be even more remarkable than it was before."
