When speaking of the best in luxurious Bermuda accommodation, Hamilton, the capital, has plenty to offer. Just a sample of the choice available would include some of the following prestigious establishments. |
The Hamilton Princess
Built overlooking Hamilton Harbour, this prestigious Bermuda accommodation is the official hotel for the 35th Americas Cup.
It offers a selection of four different categories of room though all luxurious by any definition. The hotel combines the best of being close to the sea and beach but also the bustle of Bermuda’s small but vibrant capital city (or town may be more appropriate). It should come as no surprise to know that a lot of the hotel’s leisure is sea-based including jet skis, parasailing, kayaks and paddleboards.
If you ever tire of that and fancy some pampering, you have the Exhale Spa waiting to ease those aches and make you feel whole again.
The Royal Palms
This is a smaller boutique hotel (32 rooms, all non-smoking) which has become very popular with guests seeking a more individual style of Bermuda accommodation.
Based around and in two 19th century charming pink manor houses, it has regularly been voted a favourite in all the travel guides and has also won numerous awards on Bermuda itself. The cuisine in the hotel is legendary on the islands for its quality and authenticity. If you’re a gourmand, you’ll love it here.
A small but conveniently located hotel, close to the town centre, with lots of charm and character.
The Rosedon Hotel
If you prefer your hotels to be intimate, then you’ll love this location.
Rosedon is what can only be described as a beautiful Edwardian country manor located in stunningly attractive gardens just a short walk from the centre of Hamilton. Originally built as a private home, it retains today a sense of personal attention that makes visitors feel like they are more of a family member visiting than a paying guest.
Another boutique hotel, every room is unique and the heated swimming pool is surrounded by greenery. This hotel is loved by those who prefer quieter and personal-service oriented surroundings to large resort-scale hotels.
The island is blessed with great weather all year round and is semi-tropical. Temperatures vary between around 23C to 30C and June to September can have high humidity at around 85%. Cool casual clothes are therefore advisable but also a light rainproof jacket might be sensible as heavy rain showers, typically of very short duration, can happen at almost any time of the year. How to Get There
Bermuda is 7 hours by air (or less) from London with British Airways being the only operator of scheduled flights at the present time. More frequent flights depart from East Coast of the States and from Canadian cities with flights times of around 2-4 hours - so ideal for two centre holidays.
Transfers times from the airport to Bermuda accommodation in Hamilton are typically fast (the distance is around 10 miles / 16km).
John Dixon is Managing Director of Prestige Holidays and visits Bermuda at least twice a year. He has been providing holidays in luxury Bermuda accommodation as well as luxury holidays to many other destinations worldwide for over 30 years.
