Escape winter with two new tropical destinations

St. Regis Bermuda

Looking for a place to escape to in the coming new year? Then now is the perfect time to plan a tropical getaway with two of our favorite (and new!) Caribbean resorts: The Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos and the St. Regis Bermuda. Both destinations capture thoughtful comfort, timeless elegance, and activity-filled itineraries, as they are set against quintessential tropic landscapes. So, whether you are looking for an adventure-packed beach vacation, or a relaxing, quiet getaway, these destinations have it all without losing their own unique touch. And the best part? Our clients are spoiled with VIP amenities, upgrades, and special perks because of our exclusive relationship with both resorts.

Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos

Located atop the soft white sand of Grace Bay, Providenciales, the Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos is the epitome of a contemporary, tropical fusion. The property is set along 688 feet of unobstructed oceanfront, and visitors are able to bask in the quiet solitude that comes with a destination set in the heart of, what many like to call, one of the best beaches in the world.

DO:

The crystal-clear waters of Grace Bay are home to a stunning barrier reef that allows for calm waters, lots of marine wildlife, and interactive activities. Spend your days searching for the most colorful fish while snorkeling or get moving while kayaking or paddleboarding. For a more sophisticated setting, reserve a yacht or a charter that whisks you around the Bay in quiet luxury. Finally, spend a day on the Ritz-Carlton’s golf course, where players can tee off overlooking swaying palm trees and the rippling ocean.

EAT:

Various restaurants span the length of the beach that offer paradise-inspired dishes, so you never have to leave the beach. Grab a bite onsite at Beach Restaurant while watching the sunset over the water, or order food and wine to your balcony room and lounge after a long day in the sun.

DRINK:

Mirroring its exclusivity, the nightlife surrounding Grace Bay is quiet and minimal. Grab a relaxing cocktail under your cabana, or head over to a small inland beach bar to experience the local nightlife.

RELAX:

Known for its serenity, Grace Bay’s 12-mile stretch is a perfect backdrop for relaxing in a cabana by the ocean or just strolling along. For those who like to lavish in luxury, there is an onsite wellness center with treatment areas, as well as a sauna and a steam room.

St. Regis Bermuda

Newly opened in the summer of 2021, The St. Regis Bermuda is the picture of sophisticated luxury in an intimate setting. With a lavish take on entertainment, this destination boasts a renowned golf course, tranquil spa, and carefully curated experiences that allow travelers to get a taste of the local island culture.

DO:

Display your competitive side and challenge yourself to a game of golf on an 18-hole course designed by renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones. After, make your way to a local attraction, such as walking the Crystal & Fantasy Caves or adventuring to Gibb’s Lighthouse. If you’re traveling with family, be sure to enthrall them by diving for lost treasure in the shipwreck capital of the world, or surprise them with a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Quest.

EAT:

Get in touch with the local culture of Bermuda by taking a culinary tour of Hamilton and sampling various Bermudian dishes. Or, stay onsite and eat at the renowned BLT steakhouse located in the St. Regis hotel. Carefully crafted around culinary experiences often found in Bermuda, visitors get to taste the island authentically when staying at St. Regis.

DRINK:

Sip rum-inspired cocktails that are a significant part of the Bermudian culture. Enjoy quiet luxury by taking afternoon tea in The Drawing Room or blend your love of spirits and herbal remedies with both options at The St. Regis Bar.

RELAX:

If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious than lounging and taking in the ocean air, make your way to the resort’s gorgeous Iridium Spa for a cleansing facial and exfoliating body scrub. The spa offers personally tailored treatments centered around precious elements to create an experience that nourishes and fulfills your needs.

Whether it be relaxing in a serene contemporary oasis on the shores of Grace Bay or exploring the fun-filled island of Bermuda, both the Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos and the St. Regis Bermuda have created a carefully crafted oasis experience for all to enjoy.
