Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club, Puerto Rico: Invest in Luxury and Natural Beauty

By Laura Walkinshaw

Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club represents the ideal union of luxury and natural beauty. This master planned community lies on 483 acres of lush native maritime forest, just 25 minutes away from San Juan’s International Airport.

Bahia’s private vacation and residential enclave introduces an unrivaled dimension of luxury and hospitality to Puerto Rico. The opening of the world-class St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort and the hotel’s offerings for guests and residents complement our resort amenities, bringing new life to Bahia.


A natural sanctuary

The resort is set within a community committed to the preservation and enhancement of the environment and adheres to the highest standards of sustainability and conservation of nature. Bahia has been designated as a Certified Gold Audubon International Signature Sanctuary; the first and only resort in the Caribbean to earn this distinction. Over 65% of the property has been preserved as green areas, sanctuaries and nature trails.

Be a part of the Bahia experience and choose from endless activities to satisfy the adventurer in you and unwind in total harmony with nature.  Enjoy two miles of crescent sandy beach, take a swim in crystal clear waters, play tennis, go kayaking or fishing in the lakes, take a hiking tour through lush nature, or go bike riding around the resort.

Golf lovers can experience the game in our Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, managed by Troon Golf. The course features a scenic layout overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, stunning lakes and the mountainous El Yunque  Rainforest. These are only a few of the many activities you can find at Bahia to enjoy a beautiful day in the sun.
