This splendid new resort will be part of the exclusive Bahia Beach Resort Community, a 483-acre sanctuary designed to fit into its natural environment and boasting a challenging Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed golf course. Designed and inspired by nature, the resort has been named a Certified Gold Audubon International Signature Sanctuary — the Caribbean’s first development to earn this prestigious ranking. The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort itself will be intimate, with 139 inspiring accommodations — each a junior suite or one-bedroom resort residential accommodation. The decors will be stylish with rich textures and thoughtful lighting. For amenities, expect high-tech: flat-screen LCD televisions, DVD/CD players, iPod docking stations and BOSE sound systems along with custom furnishings and top-shelf sundries. You will be catered to throughout your stay. From the moment guests arrive, a St. Regis Butler will ensure all of their needs and desires are tended to, from welcoming them to their rooms and unpacking their suitcases to delivering morning coffee and arranging for island tours Located along a two-mile beach between the scenic Espiritu Santo and Herrera rivers, the St. Regis is lovingly landscaped with coconut and almond trees. Guests may spend their days lounging around the sprawling freeform swimming pool or boating, snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, fishing or water skiing. When it’s time to dine, guests may treat their palates enjoying meals in Fern Restaurant, by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, or at Molasses, a stylish casual restaurant in the plantation-style golf club. Take casual meals at the Pool and Beach Grill. Reflecting the resort’s sensibilities, the Remède Spa will be indulgent. Guests will be welcomed with a glass of bubbly, truffles by chocolatier Jacques Torres and soft Kashwere throws. Each of the treatment rooms will have its own private outdoor terrace.
