Caroline Bay set to welcome Ritz-Carlton to Bermuda

Morgan’s Point has unveiled Caroline Bay, Bermuda; the newest luxury destination resort in the destination.

The residential and yachting community will redefine luxury travel in Bermuda, and is just a mere 90 minutes from New York City and the north-eastern United States.

The newly branded Caroline Bay, Bermuda will be situated on a secluded cove protected by a historic peninsula in the Great Sound in the west end of Bermuda. 

The setting honours Bermuda’s rich maritime history and its treasured British traditions, while also signalling the welcomed renaissance of luxury lifestyle experiences for visitors and residents.

The Caroline Bay, Bermuda development will feature a Ritz-Carlton Reserve boutique hotel, residences, spa, restaurants, fashionable shops and a mega-yacht marina.

The new resort community is the vision of Morgan’s Point, whose principals have joined with world-class partners to create a sophisticated resort project that will embrace the charm and natural beauty that is Bermuda in surprisingly fresh and adventurous ways.

“After years of planning, it’s gratifying to announce this milestone project,” said Craig Christensen, president and chief executive officer of Morgan’s Point.

“Our intention is to recapture for modern travellers the storied, relaxed glamour of Bermuda during the 1950s and 1960s in ways that feel new, inspiring and are available nowhere else on earth.


“At the same time, we will celebrate our love of the sea and sailing – both with the upcoming America’s Cup race next year and the future mega-yacht marina for residents and transient sailors alike.

“Perhaps most important, as a native Bermudian, is that we will share unique insights into our distinctive culture, its art, music and food, while also making a difference in the lives of people who are and will be our future employees.”

First Ritz-Carlton Reserve at Caroline Bay, Bermuda

The Great Sound, the site for the 2017 America’s Cup race, is a spectacular body of water virtually surrounded by the slender island nation and features distinctive Bermudian pink sand beaches.

Numerous smaller bays are carved out of the arcing shoreline and offer different intimate locations within the resort destination.

One of these secluded spots is The Little Sound, which will be the site of the future luxury boutique property, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

Opening in 2018, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve will bring its signature style of luxury to Bermuda for those who appreciate authentic, inspiring, ultra-luxurious experiences.

The respite will feature a contemporary interpretation of British Colonial architecture designed by SB Architects that conveys a sense of place on a half-mile of beachfront and iron-shore coastline.

Quietly sophisticated low-rise pastel buildings with crisp white roofs and natural wooden balconies will offer views that include the water, lush gardens and intimate-to-grand outdoor gathering spaces. 

Situated as a sanctuary within Bermuda’s Little Sound, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Residences includes a 79-room luxury boutique hotel with stunning waterfront views; extensive amenities, including restaurants, spa, high-end retail; and a mega-yacht marina with slips for 77 boats and 21 super yachts – all dotted by branded residences along the shoreline.

The calm waters in the Bay will provide a playground for water sports such as sailing, kayaking and paddle boarding. 

The west end where the Caroline Bay, Bermuda resort is located, is home to some of Bermuda’s most beautiful natural resources for lovers of the outdoors. 

Amenities also include the award winning Port Royal Golf Course located across the street from the property.

The Ritz-Carlton Reserve bungalows will string along The Little Sound to the south, while the global brand’s residences will hug the shore of quieter George’s Bay.

Marina residences will overlook the large mega-yacht marina that will sit at the end of the cove that forms George’s Bay, while future phases of Northshore residences are planned to the north of the marina.
