The resort will be the third Reserve location in the region after Dorado Beach opened in 2012, and the expected opening of Puerto Los Cabos in 2018.
Ritz-Carlton president and chief operating officer Herve Humler said: "We have watched Bermuda as a destination closely for many years and believe the timing has never been better to introduce what will be a one-of-a-kind, luxury experience to the island.
The Ritz-Carlton Reserve is currently represented by Phulay Bay in Krabi, Thailand; the Dorado Beach Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico; and the opening of Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Ubud, Bali.
