From family-owned beach resorts to art-orientated boutique pads, these are the best hotels in Bermuda.

Part English cricketing village out to sea, part semi-tropical island, Bermuda is tiny at just 21sqm (54sqkm). But with African, Portuguese, Asian and North American heritage, 181 islands, pink-sand beaches and pastel-hued houses, more golf courses than it really ought to have, and a treacherous reef whose shipwrecks offer a world-class diving destination, there’s plenty to do. Here’s our guide to the best hotels in Bermuda for every traveller.

Rosedon Hotel, Hamilton

Described as Bermuda’s old-world hotel, guests have been crossing the threshold of the Rosedon since 1904. Once a grand house, the lush gardens filled with passion flowers and birds of paradise make it feel secluded from the bustle of capital city Hamilton. Take tea in gardens, then wander five minutes to the boutiques along Bermuda’s Front Street. Take a free shuttle to the beach, after a hearty breakfast of cloud-light buttermilk pancakes or silky eggs benedict at the hotel’s restaurant, Huckleberry’s.

The Reefs Resort and Club, Southampton

Bermuda’s blush sands are one of the main draws at the Reefs, where each guest room faces west to enjoy sunsets over the Atlantic. This large resort has been open since 1947, and is still owned and operated by the Bermudian family, the Dodwells. Free kayak, paddleboard and snorkelling gear mean you can make the most of the calm waters of the secluded bay below the limestone cliffs. Four restaurants, an award-winning spa, and a tennis court mean there’s no reason to leave once you’ve settled in. This is definitely one for those seeking easy relaxation.

Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, Somerset

This is one of the oldest resorts in Bermuda – open for nearly 100 years. Previous visitors have included the Clintons and numerous elite sports players. So many visitors return that a wall lists the names of those that have stayed five times or more, with the top guest currently tracking more than 100 stays. As well as the service, they come for the privacy. At the tip of its own peninsula, there are guaranteed water views and more than one private cove. A child-free policy means the vibe is calm, while the detached cottages mean you can easily keep to yourself.

Grotto Bay Beach Resort, Bailey’s Bay

Ever had a massage in a 500,000-year-old cave? Book the Grotto Bay Serenity Cave Experience and instead of looking at your therapist’s feet, you’ll be gazing down at clear, turquoise waters, to the sound of droplets gently falling from thousands of stalactites. Described as Bermuda’s only all-inclusive optional resort, it’s also just five minutes from the airport. In the rooms, luxury touches such as marble bathrooms and coffee makers come as standard. Try the swimming cave if the luminous bay gets boring.

South Beach stylings meet relaxed beach chic at the Loren, Bermuda’s newest kid, having opened in 2017. Large swathes of glass, contemporary artworks, and soft décor in muted hues of blue, grey, and sand make a soothing setting. Marble bathrooms have freestanding tubs and rain showers, while all rooms feature high-thread-count sheets, Nespresso machines, and flip-flops for the beach. Expect to see a few for-the-gram photoshoots taking place at the hip Pink Beach Club, which gets lively at the weekends.

Traditional décor and old-fashioned hospitality await at the Royal Palms, where each day is marked with an evening wine hour, and rooms feature freshly cut flowers on arrival. Downtown Hamilton is just a ten-minute walk away from this former private home that dates from 1903, set in quiet tropical gardens. For a special night out without leaving the property, head to Ascots restaurant for the homemade pasta and seafood.

The Fairmont – Hamilton Princess & Beach Club

Soak up some culture and fine living at one of two Fairmont properties on the island. The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club is set right on the harbour, perfect for watching world-class yachts as they take to the bay and just a 14-minute walk from the Bermuda National Gallery. Though you don’t need to leave the hotel to see works by some of the world’s best artists. Pieces by Picasso and Matisse adorn the walls of this alternative gallery space, with new pieces being acquired all the time. Book a guided tour.
