But the country’s plans for growth extend beyond the prestigious sailing event, and in 2018 it will get yet another luxury property courtesy of global hotel group Ritz-Carlton.
Called the Ritz-Carlton Reserve, it will represent the hotel brand’s third Reserve location to open in the region, following the opening of Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico in 2012 and the impending arrival of Puerto Los Cabos in Mexico..
Located in an area of historical significance on the western end of Bermuda, the site offers over 2.5 miles of shoreline and includes an expansive peninsula extending into the Great Sound.
According to a press release, the reserve is “inspired by the notion that the concept of luxury is ever-changing” and will be “brought to life by its deep focus on elements that speak fluently to connoisseurs of experience”.
Ritz-Carlton Reserve is currently represented by Phulay Bay in the village of Krabi, Thailand, Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, and this past September celebrated the opening of the highly anticipated Mandapa in Ubud, Bali.
The new Bermuda Reserve will operate under a long term management agreement with George’s Bay Hotel Ltd and George’s Bay Residences Ltd.
