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.

"PERFECT" IN EVERY SINGLE WAY!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe Tarun's villa at Bahia...perhaps "PERFECT" is the only proper adjective I can think of. Pictures do not reflect well enough the beauty of the villa and its comforts. It is so beautiful...a gem... Its decor is chic and luxurious and yet comfy and inviting. When you walk into it, you just feel like smiling and a sense of peacefulness invades you. It is equipped with anything anyone could ever need for a perfect vacation, the beds are divine, kitchen is top notch, electronics are superb, the amenities are great and the view is to die for. The location of the villa couldn't be better...close enough to everything in the resort and yet in a silent and private location. Tarun is the greatest host, always available, always reaching out to make sure everything was perfect...Yesenia (property manager) was just wonderful...couldn't have been more helpful...I texted twice to ask something and she texted back within a minute. She made checking in and checking out smooth and almost fun! Bahia as a resort does not need much explanation or description: it is HEAVEN. It is one of the most beautiful places in Puerto Rico...and in the world...Beautiful and unspoiled beach, private first class pools, excellent restaurants, and a professional and courteous staff that will do anything to please you and make your vacation the best ever. Looking for a "dream vacation"? THIS IS IT.

Beautiful, spacious villa with friendly, helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 nights for a family wedding! Well decorated with many amenities - provided the little things like detergent, extra toilet paper, etc. that make all the difference! Also welcomed us with a nice fruit basket! The owner communicated often before and during our stay to check on us and to answer any questions we had about excursions, restaurants, etc.

The resort itself is amazing - beautiful, well-maintained, so much to do!!

Highly recommend this owner and property!

Great property! Lovely people! Highly recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great for a family of 5 - perfectly simple and tasteful. The property was beautiful and it was great to have a golf cart to get around. The view from the patio was wonderful and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The course is excellent if you golf. We have travelled a lot as a family and this was our favorite trip. Thank you Tarun and Yesinia for making it extra special.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this villa!! It is exactly as pictured but better in person. We enjoyed the amenities of the resort--bikes and kayaks---and especially tooling around in the golf cart. The staff at the pool, beach and restaurants were all so friendly and attentive. Don't miss the salsa lessons poolside on Wednesday evening, my teenage daughter and I had a total blast! Tarun is quite attentive too; checking in with us throughout the week. Unfortunately for us, it was a very rainy week, but the convenience of the location was perfect!!!

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week here and could not have enjoyed it any more. We loved everything about the Villa, the incredible Bahia Beach Resort property, and all of the fun things to do. The entire place is incredibly well manicured, and the beach, pools, lakes and amenities were fantastic. The workers were super nice and helpful, and the golf course was amazing. We would definitely go back and would highly recommend it to anyone.
