About the property

3br / 3ba With One Of The Best Views In Bahia Beach

*** Back on the Grid and beautiful as ever! ***


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 St. Regis Hotel Pool

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

7. 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!

**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

Gorgeous Resort and Wonderful Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We were amazed at the St. Regis/Bahia Beach Resort-- from its wonderful lush impeccable landscaping to the private pristine beach of calming blue waves-- we cannot say enough. All the staff on site was friendly and accommodating to us. The Condo was beautiful and fulfilled all our needs. Thank you to Yasmenia for waiting for us due to a delayed flight! So kind. The location allowed us to see parts of Puerto Rico I doubt we would have ever seen had we not been here. While too quiet at times for our son, my husband and I were very pleased. Off the beaten path but well worth it if you are seeking a quiet time away from a city hustle. Tarun is a great communicator for a property owner. I would highly recommend the property.

Following the Maria hurricane we were apprehensive about taking a family of 7 adults and a 10 month old baby. After excellent communications with Tarun, the owner of the condo, we knew it was not going to be exactly the same as before, but signs of recovery of the vegetation and amenities were trending in the right direction. We decided to stick with our plans and do our best to contribute to the Puerto Rico economy. We were not disappointed. 2 thumbs up. Despite some evidence of Maria in the woods/jungle, the grounds/landscaping were maintained beautifully. Full of ver friendly employees at every turn (pool, restaurant, bar, golf course, shops, fitness). The unit had everything we needed and more including things for babies and kids, bluetooth speakers, games, and lots of kitchen equipment. The golf course and beach club pool area were in excellent shape. The beach was incredible. Clean, soft sand, and not a soul on the beach. The seafloor is just sand. I never stepped on anything but sand despite hours of body surfing in the waves. We had not power from 8ish AM to 6ish PM, except Christmas day where the resort kept the generators running. We hardly missed the power as we were at the pool or beach or golfing, and the baby would nap twice in a condo that stayed cool enough until 6pm. new and well sealed refrigerator kept things cool also. TV and internet were working great while powered, and otherwise our ATT cells were giving us sufficiently reliable signals for data and calls. We were a short drive away from the Kioscos in Luquillo for some good meals, even take out to enjoy in the nice condo. A few dinners in San Juan, about 35 minutes, to mx things up. Puerto Rico needs more visitors, NOT CANCELLATIONS, more help, and many still need power. Even those on generators need to get onto grid power as they are spending 4 to 5 times the normal bill to fuel the generators. Despite the hardships, we were so impressed with the resilience and the strong temperament. No whining. We will definitely come back to Puerto Rico and definitely to Bahia Beach. While the next time there will be more people, we can't imagine that it will feel crowded considering the many options available. Thanks Tarun for calling it as it was and giving us the comfort to come out. Another excellent trip for the family.

A+ Property and Experience

  • 5 of 5

We took my parents and two small children for a 10 day get-away. The villa and property were just perfect for the occasion -- the pictures and descriptions really don't do it justice. We took several day trips off the property, but we easily could have stayed on site the whole time. Golf, tennis, fitness center, bikes, kayaking, nature trails, pools, beaches, lagoon with slides and trampolines--it's a playground for everybody.

The villa was more than spacious for the six of us, and was beautifully appointed. We received a warm welcome and Tarun was super responsive to questions.

We would stay here on a return trip to PR in a heartbeat.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Bahia Beach Resort itself is fantastic. If you wanted, you could stay on the property the whole time and enjoy yourself. The place is perfect-great floor plan and everything very well appointed. The owner and caretaker checked in regularly and gave us great advice on activities. Our kids loved the lagoon and it was enjoyable for us parents as well because we could cruise around on paddle boards or kayaks. There are multiple pools, with the one at the Residences our favorite. The beach was beautiful, and the further down you go the better the conditions for small children. We took day trips to the rain forest, Luquillo (kiosks and beach), the bio bay kayaking in Fajardo, Fajardo again to go snorkeling. We only bought 2 meals at the resort (lunch at the Residences pool both time) because we wanted to explore the local flavors. It was easy to get out in the community. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip and this place.

Perfect Puerto Rican Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Bahia Beach and the St. Regis resort is a wonderful place to take a family vacation. There are several pools, a fantastic beach and the bonus is the lake with the inflatables, kayaking and standup paddleboards. So much to do on property. But then you are also just a quick drive to the rainforest and San Juan. The condo was extremely nice, clean and perfectly equipped. The golf cart that is included was a favorite with the kids.

The owner Tarun and his manager Yesenia were excellent hosts, providing us with quick suggestions or answers to questions.

You should feel incredibly comfortable booking this property.
