If you’re looking for a hotel that is the epitome of oceanfront luxury, then look no further than The St. Regis Bermuda Resort. Just a stone’s throw away from the gorgeous white sands of St. Catherine Beach, the hotel offers everything you need for an unforgettable stay.

From its architecture to the art, everything screams modern, stylish luxury. As day transitions into night, don’t miss the Sabering Ritual at 6pm, a tradition dating back to the battles of Napoleon, who famously opened champagne with his Saber sword in victory and defeat. This lives on in St Regis properties across the world, with bottles of champagne meticulously chilled and prepared 24 hours in advance before being cut with a Saber sword to raise a toast and signal the evening.


Located on the East End of the island, The St. Regis offers luxury in an otherwise traditional part of Bermuda, making it a stunning property in St. George.
