BAHIA BEACH RESORT AND GOLF CLUB

Welcome to Bahia Beach Resort and Golf Club, the most spectacular resort in Puerto Rico. As soon as you enter our gates you can tell right away this place is different. Situated at the foot of El Yunque (the only rainforest in the U.S. forest system), the lushness of the former coconut plantation immediately hits you and you can clearly see why Bahia Beach has been designated an Audubon International Gold Sanctuary and is one of the most unique properties in the entire Caribbean.

With 2 miles of secluded ocean-front beach and sprawling lakes over its 400-plus acres, Bahia Beach is unique in that it allows you to enjoy both saltwater and freshwater recreational activities. Come to the boathouse (a very short walk from our villa), where you can take a kayak or paddle-board out for a spin and get a unique, up-close look at the beautiful flora and fauna of Puerto Rico.

When you get back to the Boathouse, grab a fishing pole and try your luck at catching a Tarpon, Snook, Jack or one of the many other species of fish in our well stocked lakes (all catch and release of course). Afterwards, you can take a bicycle from the boathouse and explore one of the beautiful and peaceful nature trails on the property. Better yet, take a guided nature tour arranged through The Nature Center, also located at the Boathouse.

Is golf on the agenda? Then you are going to love this place! Forget your clubs? No problem, just head over to the Golf Clubhouse and they will take care of all your golfing needs. Robert Trent Jones outdid himself when he designed his first golf course in Puerto Rico. With El Yunque as a backdrop and a lush coconut tree forest surrounding you, it’s just you, the ball and some of the most beautiful landscape you can imagine. The Back Nine is simply stunning, with holes 17 and 18 wrapping up the day in spectacular ocean-front fashion. After a fantastic round of golf, head over to Molasses (next to the Golf Clubhouse) for a celebratory round of drinks (and eats) and let the friendly staff take care of you while you overlook Bahia Beach and the Atlantic Ocean – a true “19th Hole” experience.

Is tennis more your game? Then head over to our hard-court tennis facility (located next to the Sales Center). We currently have 4 courts (2 lighted) so you can pretty much count on having a court available when you want (reservations are still recommended). Need to work on your game? Take a lesson with our fantastic tennis pro, Carl.

Exhausted yet? Head over to the Spa for some well-deserved pampering and relaxation in one of the massage villas – steam, sauna, and hot and cold plunges round out this amazing experience.

When you are ready for a true fine dining experience, you don’t have to go far. Just make a reservation at world-renowned Chef Jean Georges’s restaurant: Fern. With an eclectic mixture of international and Puerto Rican flavors, Fern is sure to satisfy any palette.

LA ISLA DEL ENCANTO

Bahia Beach is perfectly situated to enjoy many of the attractions that Puerto Rico has to offer. Located just 25 minutes east of San Juan, you are only 15 minutes from the El Yunque Rainforest. Just a little further east takes you to the town of Fajardo, where you can take one of the famous Bio-luminescent Bay tours or take a ferry to one of Puerto Rico’s beautiful “little islands”, Vieques and Culebra.

If you are ready for some city life, head west about 25-30 minutes to San Juan where you can enjoy the charms of Old San Juan and top it off with a night on the town at one of San Juan’s many first-class Hotel-Casino establishments in Condado or Isla Verde.

LAS VERANDAS 9277

When you are ready to finally relax back “home”, a luxurious 3 bedroom – 3 bathroom villa awaits you. With a panoramic view of our largest lake and hole #8, relax on your balcony as you watch golfers and kayakers alike enjoy nature and the most beautiful resort setting in Puerto Rico. This is truly one of the best views in all of Bahia Beach.

Our villa consists of a Master bedroom with a spacious en-suite bath complete with a king-sized bed. Our guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and our large Children’s Suite consists of 4 Full-Size beds (2 full-size bunks). A fully equipped kitchen, dining, family, and laundry room along with 2 more full bathrooms complete this spacious villa of around 2,000 sq ft.

LA PLAYA

But what about the beach? No, we did not forget about the main reason you probably came to the Caribbean in the first place: The Beach.

Bound by the crystal clear Espiritu Santo River to the east and the town of Loiza to the west, 2 miles of soft-sand beach await you to satisfy all your “beachcomber” needs. Take a leisurely stroll along the water’s edge as you look over the blue-green water and come back with your hands full of sea shells and sand dollars.

While on your stroll, you may have noticed small areas of the beach that have been roped off (March – May). These are where the famous leatherback sea-turtles have come to lay their eggs. These are the “stars of the show” here in Bahia. There can easily be 15-20 of these nests in any given season. If you are staying with us between June and August, you may be lucky enough to witness the hatching of these amazing creatures. Our onsite Marine Biologist, Marcela, usually will let us know within a few hours of when these hatchlings will appear. My family has thoroughly enjoyed these “Discovery Channel” moments.

After a day at the beach you can take a dip in or relax by our lovely pool, which sits right in front of our villa.

RESORT FEES AND AMENITIES:

The new Resort Fees now gives you complete access to all the amenities in Bahia Beach, which include:

1. The new Member Only Pool (pictured above)

2. The new Member Only Gym (pictured above)

3. The Member Only Beach Club (towels, chairs, etc.)

4. The Las Verandas Pool (in front of our villa, pictured above)

5. The Nature Center/Boathouse (includes use of the kayaks, canoes, bikes, fishing poles, etc.)

6. The Tennis Courts

In other resorts, you typically pay a resort fee for your stay plus extra for the amenities you use, like the gym, activities (bikes, kayaks, etc.). Here, you pay the resort fees and it includes all of this....very convenient!

The only thing you do not have access to is the St. Regis pool and beach chairs. These are reserved for hotel guests only. However, hotel guests do not have access to the Bahia Member pools, beach club, gym , etc.

You of course still have access to all Bahia and St. Regis restaurants, as well as the hotel Spa.

**As part of your stay you also have access to our golf cart (4 seater) free of charge.

There is so much more to add to our “property description”, but there is just not enough room. Las Verandas 9277 embodies all things Bahia and we know that you will enjoy coming here time and again. We look forward to welcoming you to a place we are very proud of. “Nos vemos pronto”!

About Tarun Palep

Based in Atlanta, we are a family of 5. I enjoy life with my wife and 3 young daughters and we have had business in Puerto Rico for the last 10+ years. We had always thought about owning a second home on the island, but nothing ever moved us. That is until the first time we set foot onto Bahia Beach. I knew instantly that this place was different. The rest as they say, is history.

Tarun Palep purchased this condo in 2010

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed for the week with our family and loved it all. The condo is comfortable, spacious and well furnished. It had everything we needed. We had two children with us who loved riding in the golf cart. It's a wonderful way to get around the property. We played tennis, swam in the pools, and the kids loved the water park. We used bikes, kayaks and paddle boards. There's lots to do and a beautiful setting. The beach is gorgeous and the service all over was so accommodating. We're planning on returning!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three kids aged 13, 9, and 6) stayed for 9 days at this spectacular resort. The highlights:

- The beach is fantastic. Darker but fine, clean sand. Water temperature was perfect.

- Beach pool was great. Lower level deck for kids; upper level adults only. Chairs, umbrellas, clean towels, food/beverage service (also on the beach as well)

- Lagoon is awesome. Swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and a super fun water playground. The boathouse here is also where you can grab some bicycles …. every size available.

- Husband and son did the golfing. Excellent course. My husband only wished they would offer a 9-hole rate.

Never made it for tennis, but they were having open clinics every day from 10 - 11. You can also reserve your own court time and lessons with the pro.

The condo was perfect. Spacious, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. We enjoyed the golf cart so much for getting around the resort.

And we simply can't say enough about our host. This is what service is all about! We were provided with such a warm welcome. We received extremely helpful documentation beforehand, about the island, the resort, what to do, where to eat and how to get around. There were prompt answers to all of our questions. The best of the best here.

We hope to return!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at the Bahia Beach Resort! Tarun is the most amazing and attentive host! Prior to our arrival he answered emails immediately and helped with the entire planning process: recommending restaurants and activities that would appeal to our multigenerational family and supplying us with directions, maps and even a floor plan.

The well appointed and spacious villa is spectacular and immaculate! It was the perfect location for our family of four adults and three small children (2,4,5). The villa is even more beautiful in person!

The St.Regis has wonderful amenities which are all included in the resort fee: kayaking, paddle-boarding, water slides and trampoline, tennis, nature walks, pools and the beach. Our grandchildren loved going to the pristine beach, swimming, playing basketball, feeding the turtles and exploring the beautiful grounds on the golf cart, too.

The property manager greeted us upon arrival, was our contact person 24/7 and was there to bid us farewell. An edible arrangement was a thoughtful and lovely welcome which was truly appreciated.

Through out our stay, Tarun contacted us to see if we needed anything at all. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to deal with Tarun! He was incredible! We have fallen in love with Puerto Rico and this villa! Everyone was so warm, friendly, accommodating and kind. We look forward to returning to this incredible property for another perfect vacation.

Great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations loved Bahia. The condo was excellently equipped and comfortable. The property has activities for all - tennis, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, water trampoline, walking the beach .... (Bahia has what appears to be a beautiful golf course, but we don't play golf.) Our host was gracious and attentive.

We have very high standards and it was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our children met friends for a week at Bahia. It was our first time in Puerto Rico and it was so beautiful, so easy, so fun, so clean, so everything that we are completely smitten. The property is luxurious and well-equipped. The pools, boathouse, beaches and nature are unparalled. We took a hike in the El Yunque rainforest (very short drive) that we will always cherish. Tarun, the owner, is equally exceptional. He was so kind, attentive and helpful at every moment from the time we booked until the time we lost the golf cart key (and a new one was waiting for us when we got back from the pool). We would give Tarun and Bahia 100 stars if we could!
