St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort Review

Between El Yunque rain forest and the Río Espíritu Santo, this luxurious, environmentally aware property has raised the bar for lodgings in Puerto Rico. An oasis of calm that hums with local wildlife, this former coconut plantation occupies 483 acres, including 2 miles of pristine private beach, and has an oceanfront golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. that weaves through the mangroves. The spacious rooms are in low-rise plantation-style buildings that highlight natural materials and feature perks like 40-inch LCD TVs (and a second TV hidden behind the bathroom mirror), iPod docking stations, Bose sound systems, and Pratesi linens, while the massive suites include butler service. Hike, bird-watch, run, or kayak through the property if you're feeling active. If not, score a cabana at the pristine pool or laze in a chaise and order cocktails on the beach. The weary can indulge in treatments in the 10,000-square-foot Remède Spa, and when it's time to eat, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's restaurant Fern serves thoughtful Latin-Caribbean dishes.
