August 30, 2017

A video posted on the OBM International Youtube channel highlights a rendering of the proposed St Regis Hotel in St. George’s, providing a three minute overview of the design.

The video description says, “Join us on an escape to the newly designed St Regis Bermuda by global hospitality firm OBMI. The magnificent site is honoured with an elegant design punctuating the land while respecting neighbouring Fort St Catherine.”

St Regis Bermuda Architectural Design By OBMI August 2017

The ground breaking was held in May of this year, and at that time, officials said, the “luxury hotel will feature facilities such as 122 rooms and suites, St. Regis restaurant, bar and wine vault, a casino and 3,000 sq ft of meeting space.”

“For guests looking to relax, the resort will feature an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, a luxury spa and state-of-the-art fitness centre, a club for children and teens, and swimming pools for adult and families.

“The look and feel of the new St. Regis will reflect Bermuda’s unique architectural style; OBM International, the master planning, architecture and design firm, has designed the property.”

    That’s cue for entitled Bermudians to moan and complain that it isn’t Bermudian enough and about beach access. Maybe throw a little racial into the mix.

    • charles says:

      An unapologetic …So?

    • Quinton Berkley Butterfield says:

      Or other entitled Bermudians to complain about entitled Bermudians.

      • mixitup says:

        That IF he is even Bermudian…And to Jimmy MAC Bermudians ARE Entitled to voice ANY concerns they may have with this development and should be welcome to do so! This is why we live in a democracy correct?

        • The Original Truth™ says:

          Agreed!

          It’s ironic that in places like Bermuda and Cayman there’s always talk from GUESTS about the entitled locals. You never hear foreigners in North America whine about entitled Americans or Canadians while living in their country. This is because being entitled in your own country is the whole reason of being a citizen. This type of mentality is the reason why guest in Bermuda and Cayman are allowed to overstay their welcome and allowed to return after doing so.

          • Zevon says:

            And there you have it. A Bermudian’s justification of entitlement. Unearned privelige.

    • So Tired says:

      About beach access to a beach that’s rarely used. I’ve never seen it with more than a couple of people, even on the most sunniest of days…LOL!

      • Bermyrock says:

        I support building the hotel , and I do not agree with using the issue of beach access to try to hinder this project . However , it simply isn’t true to suggest the beach is rarely used . It is well used by locals and tourists .

      • BILLYBYE says:

        Either you don’t frequent St.George’s or ya just talking because you can. Fort St. Catherine beach is used more than you think.

        • Skytrain says:

          Maybe they will clean the beach of all the left behind garbage…broken beer bottles, cigarette buts, and left over food containers to name a few.Last time we were there a tourist suffered a gash to her foot from glass at the shoreline.

    • Rhonda says:

      Okay…where is the gate for Bermudians to get to the beach..

      Bbq grill and kit through the hotel lobby..

  2. Truth says:

    Very nice, cant wait for completion

  3. Sorry Sir says:

    I don’t see a through road.

    How are people supposed to get to Fort St Catherine Beach and fort?
    What about access to Blackbeards?

    • Concerned about OUR beach says:

      i was wondering too?!

    • Skytrain says:

      Hasn’t been Blackbeards for ar least 5 years. I suppose you go there often then….?

      • Zevon says:

        No. He just wants a special road to be there for the once per decade he even thinks about it.

    • Rhonda says:

      The new road are being built as we speak..

  4. Izzypop says:

    I will believe it when I see it going up
    Right now and for months all they hv done is make new roads.

  5. Bermewjan says:

    Looks like a new Sonesta! Yay!

  6. Bermewjan says:

    So what does the entrance look like? The drive up to the hotel? Why just show us the ocean side? What about the golf course?

  7. Bermudian says:

    First hurricane with all that glass @ sea level, think about all the major factors before you sign off on anything!!!

    • Crystal Woolridge says:

      This is a bad design for Our Bermuda. Hurricanes!! Golf course yes..casinos hell no..people come here to get away from that fast life.

    • Tomas says:

      Go to Google Earth and see how low the proposed building area is. Tropical storms and hurricanes are creating far greater storm surge and there is no doubt the proposed building will be very vulnerable even during construction. Government gave a lot of concessions and guarantees to developer, too bad they didn’t give more thought to the location.

  8. Tom Cooke says:

    Looks great…
    Lets build… now…

  9. No Longer A Member says:

    Well Done OBA, the economy should be moving for the next 3 to 4 years. Airport, Morgan’s Point and St Regis, Bermudians should have jobs and the government should be collecting revenues.

    • Tomas says:

      What decade do you expect Government will start seeing plus revenues from these developments considering guarantees and concessions will suck up revenue first.

      • Rhonda says:

        Absolutely. .with all these developments paying little to no taxes…

  10. Hope says:

    Maybe the Bermuda cottage model doesn’t work well financially any more, but it’s such a shame to see a large hotel design as opposed to those beautiful pastel cottages. This will be great for St George’s though, just a missed opportunity on the design I think.

    • Tomas says:

      OBMI a Bermuda firm knew the Government would approve whatever they designed, it was get it done and don’t worry about backlash. Reminiscent of Carlton Beach which had to make some changes after completion to soften the Miami Beach look.

  11. John says:

    Question for all. I’m from the U.S. and love to travel to BDA. However, haven’t been for a while. It seems over the years that this area has never made it for a resort. The Holiday Inn, way back, the Club Med attempt, etc. All closed. Do Bermudians think this was a good idea? Do you think it will work? I love the St. Georges area, but it’s a ways from the main tourist areas of Southampton, Warwick, Sandy’s, and even Hamilton. Just wondering how things have changed at that end of the island?

  12. Bullseye says:

    I hope the PLP investigates and cancels this project. This was just another scam by the OBA to manipulate voters. That won’t work the voters have spoken shut this down!

    • Zevon says:

      what about the jobs? Perhaps you lot aren’t “hurting” as much as you always whine about.

    • therock says:

      “I hope the PLP investigates and cancels this project. This was just another scam by the OBA to manipulate voters. That won’t work the voters have spoken shut this down!”

      So, when the plp demolished the previous hotel, in order to kick out those homeless squatters, it was to manipulate the voters? Why do plp voters hate the homeless so much?

  13. Gray Matter says:

    With the right hotel group with a good and solid following, St. Regis should be successful. With the arrival of more visitors who frequent shops, restaurants, water sports, gambling… the hotel will assist in raising the local economy in St. George’s. In looking at the video, I too am concerned about how close the hotel is to the beach and I can see storm surge being a huge problem. Our storms are going to get worse, stronger and more frequent with global warming. And this hotel is gonna be at the same level as the beach? I truly am hopeful that this artistic rendition video is actually not correct.
