You won’t need to lift a finger at these tropical resorts in Bermuda.
Bermuda is beloved for its turquoise water, pink sand, colorful houses, underwater exploring and major golf scene. With an isolated location in the Atlantic Ocean, this archipelago stretches 21 miles with waterfront views almost guaranteed at any of its resorts. These properties stand out for their cliffside accommodations, spa and dining amenities and thoughtful guest services.

Start your visit to the Willowbank Resort by stepping through the hotel’s moongate, an archway made from local limestone that’s quintessential to the island and said to bring good luck. Set on eight acres (3.2ha) of oceanfront bluff, the hotel’s greatest feature is its location – just above Harbour Beach and Ocean Beach. Choose from either an ocean or garden view room with a king-sized bed and private patio. Kids under 15 years old stay for free – and can make the most of the complimentary water toys and snorkeling equipment onsite.

Book the Fairmont Gold Floor penthouse, and the elevator will stop on the sixth floor where you’ll open double cedar doors to a 2,900sq ft (269sq m) corner suite. Take in views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, and the property’s 18-hole par three golf course below.
