The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort is the only resort in Puerto Rico that has been awarded AAA’s Five Diamond Award. Though the resort has a total of 139 rooms and suites, all having ocean-view, pool-view, garden-view or even oceanfront but the highlight is the Governor’s Suite located on the second level of the Governor’s House. The one bedroom suite boasts of a double sided rattan-furnished private terrace that offers enchanting views of the Atlantic Ocean and the resort’s lush garden. The large suite has a beautifully designed living room with custom made cherry wood furnishings. The sitting area has an oversized coffee table and lounge chairs upholstered in Egyptian cotton. The room also features a dining table for six which is serviced by a fully equipped kitchen supervised by a well trained butler.
The resort spread over 483 acres is located on the northeastern corridor of the island of Puerto Rico. The location gives it a natural advantage as it is bordered by the 5,000 acre Espíritu Santo River State Preserve and the lush EI Yungue national forest. The property was formerly a coconut plantation and native maritime forest and still boasts of 100-foot palms and thick stands of seagrape, almond and flamboyant trees. It all combines to provide a stunning view to the residents of the Governor’s Suite. The master bedroom of the suite is also extra large and houses a King size bed apart from a walk-in closet, an in-room safe, an honor bar and a mini refrigerator.
