Shawn Crockwell, the Tourism Minister of Bermuda has revealed that a brand new resort and casino will be constructed in St George's.

The Desarrollos Hotelco Group has entered an exclusive negotiation period to build the 348-room hotel in Bermuda on the site of the former Club Med property.

The new hotel will include development of the St George's Golf Course and will have 248 hotel guest rooms, 16 hotel residences, 24 golf villas, and 16 three and four estate residences, plus facilities including a spa and fitness centre, a grand ballroom in Fort Victoria, swimming pools, a pool bar and grill, a casino, and a restaurant in Fort Albert.

Crockwell said that a hotel brand has not yet been confirmed for the development but it would be a "high-end luxury" brand.

The Desarrollos Group was established in 1996 and has developed a number of properties across Latin America and the Caribbean, including the JW Marriott, The Marriott Playa Grande and the Renaissance in Venezuela, and the Ritz-Carlton in Aruba.

Situated off the east coast of the United States, Bermuda is a stunning island nation in the North Atlantic Ocean. Every year, thousands of tourists flock to the island to relax on its famous pink sand beaches and enjoy the sub-tropical climate.

The country has plenty of activities to entertain visitors of all ages, including hiking and walking around the island's rolling hills, rugged coastline or pristine beaches. There are an array of luxury beachfront hotels and resorts, spas and restaurants to choose from. Holidaymakers can take part in land adventures such as horseback riding, tennis and golf, while the turquoise crystal clear ocean is perfect for watersports such as kayaking, sailing, wind surfing, parasailing, fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling and waterskiing.

Poplar tourist attractions in Bermuda include the Bermuda Aquarium, Zoo and Museum, the Bermuda Maritime Museum, the Royal Naval Dockyard, and the historic town of St George which is also a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
