In May 2021, Bermuda got a brand new luxury hotel in the form of the St. Regis Bermuda. Located in a prime position in the town of St. George's, the resort offers guests the chance to enjoy first-rate amenities in one of the most beautiful settings on the island. With superb dining options, a seriously sumptuous spa, a golf course, and a score of other top-notch delights, it's a little slice of heaven. Here are ten reasons to stay at the St. Regis Bermuda.
1. The location is dreamy
As travelkarenblog.com points out, the St. Regis Bermuda has one of the best addresses in Bermuda. Bermuda has long been a celeb favorite, but you don't need to be a big name to enjoy its tropical beauty, history, and culture. A stay at the St. Regis Bermuda puts you in a prime position to enjoy the very best of the island's numerous attractions. Sink your toes into the pink sand at Tobacco Bay Beach, explore historic St. Catherine's Fort, stroll the charming streets of St. George's, discover the 400 shipwrecks off its shore... the opportunities are endless.
2. The dining opportunities are legendary
If you enjoy good food, you're going to love St. Regis Bermuda. The resort offers an exceptional range of eateries that are sure to please even the most discerning gourmet. To enjoy some international cuisine with a modern twist, head for the resort's elegant signature restaurant, Lina. For an afternoon tea with a difference, the Drawing Room is where it's at. The St. Regis Bar hosts a very swanky nightly champagne sabering, while the BLT Steak restaurant offers a tempting array of meaty delights, tempting desserts, and a deliciously upscale drink menu.
3. It's the last word in luxury
Let's face it, the St. Regis brand isn't exactly known for its tiny prices, and its Bermuda branch is no different. Fortunately, there's very little chance of you feeling short-changed. From the moment you walk in and clock the grand wooden beams and glittering chandelier of the elegant lobby, you'll know you're in for a treat. As hemispheresmag.com points out, everything about the resort drips in luxury, from the glasses of Champagne served in the Zen garden to the premium brand products used in the spa. If you like hotels that don't skimp on the finer things in life, you're going to love it.
4. It's cocktail heaven
Like cocktails? Then you're in for a treat. As The Points Guy notes, the St. Regis Bermuda does a fine line in cocktails, including a very special Bloody Mary that comes with a distinct Bermuda twist, Named the "Gate Bay Mary," it features a warming blend of native fennel, a special spice mix, Outerbridge's Sherry Peppers Sauce and Goslings rum. The St. Regis group, of course, has a long history with the beverage - according to most drink experts, the cocktail was invented at the St. Regis hotel in New York in the 1930s.
5. It's perfect for gym bunnies
If you'd rather work up a sweat in the gym than laze by the pool, you're in luck. The St. Regis Bermuda offers an exceptionally well-equipped fitness center that comes with everything you'll need to work off all that fine food and drink you'll be enjoying. The center is open 24 hours a day, and comes complete with free weights, cardio equipment (including an elliptical machine and exercise bike), and all the fresh towels and chilled water you'll need to get through a session.
6. The golf course is superb
If you can't imagine going an entire vacation without getting in at least one round of golf, relax. At the St. Regis Bermuda, golfers are exceptionally well catered to at the fabulous Five Forts Golf Club. Surrounded by five forts and offering sublime ocean views, it's one of the most beautiful courses on the island. Designed with everyone from beginners to experts in mind, it offers challenge, reward, and a whole heap of fun into the bargain.
7. Kids are welcome
The St. Regis Bermuda might be super swanky, but that doesn't mean it's not exceptionally family-friendly too. Kids are made to feel just as welcome as the adults thanks to a fun-packed program of activities and events designed with little ones in mind. While you head out for a relaxing day by the pool, leave the kids in the capable hands of the Children's Club team, where they'll be kept entertained with art projects, video games, and a host of other fun activities. If that wasn't enough, there's also a family-friendly pool to enjoy.
8. You can enjoy a relaxing treatment
If spending your days sipping cocktails by the pool wasn't relaxing enough, the St. Regis Bermuda also offers guests the chance to relax and rewind with a treatment at its super-luxurious spa. According to its official website, the spa is a "sanctuary of refinement and tranquility" in which guests can " immerse themselves in tailored and unique treatments." If that sounds like your kind of thing, you can book an appointment anytime from Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. Along with the extensive range of massages and treatments, there's also a plunge pool and steam room to enjoy.
9. The rooms are exquisite
Considering the St. Regis Bermuda has only been open since May 2021, you wouldn't expect the rooms to be dated or grubby. And they're certainly not that. Decorated in a palette of refined colors and organic textures, they've got luxury down to a T. All the home comforts you'd expect are there, along with premium entertainment systems and luxurious, marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and separate rain showers.
10. It's great for events
If you're planning a big event, the St. Regis Bermuda has everything you need to make sure it goes with a bang. When you make the booking, you'll be provided with a unique complimentary Reservation Link personalized with your group name, event dates, hotel, and special rates to make it easy for your guests to reserve their rooms. You'll also enjoy access to a room list so you know which of your guests have booked a room and when they plan to arrive, along with mobile check-in for guests to check in and out without having to go via the front desk.
