Homeowners can take advantage of the resort’s amenities, of course, which include an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, two restaurants, two pools, a spa, the substantial white sand beach, butler service and the island’s first casino. The resort has a relationship with the nearby marina in St. Georges, which is undergoing an expansion to accommodate superyachts for any owners who prefer to arrive by sea. Otherwise, the property is just minutes from the island’s commercial airport, which just received a major reboot, and a short drive from the popular private airport, which has seen a 500 percent increase in traffic since 2018.
The resort is the only one located in historic St. Georges, though it’s not far from Tucker’s Point, another luxury property at this end of the island. The St. Regis beach is where the British first landed after a shipwreck in 1609 and the area, a World Heritage Site, is known for its five forts, which the hotel is helping restore.
One new benefit to purchasing a luxury home in Bermuda just came on the books in March 2021—the option for a resident’s certificate, allowing foreigners to establish Bermuda as their permanent home. Previously, this could be achieved only through complicated measures, including proof you were working for the same company on the island for 10 years. With the new regulations, if you invest $2.5 million in real estate in Bermuda and hold the residence for five years, you’ll be eligible to apply for the coveted status.
