George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, said:
Bermuda has long served as an exclusive destination for the global luminaries, making it the ideal location to debut a glamorous new St. Regis resort. Much like the island, St. Regis is steeped in rich history, offering a storied past and exciting future. The St. Regis brand’s founding family, the Astors, spent time on this beautiful island more than a century ago. Now, the House of Astor’s celebrated traditions and rituals will bring this visionary spirit, avant-garde style and impeccable service back to Bermuda where our address is your muse.
Jan Vanhaelewyn, General Manager, The St. Regis Bermuda Resort, said:
The St. Regis Bermuda Resort promises to be an enchanted beachfront oasis for guests and local luminaries alike.

The purposeful irreverence of Bermuda’s fashion is brought in through saturated colors and striking geometry.
