FrontRunners: For Sail

  • Joyce Finn

The newly renovated Fairmont Hamilton Princess hotel (441.295.3000, www.fairmont.com) embodies a breezy Bermuda take on European elegance that has long made the 19th-century hostelry a favored stop for yachters on transatlantic journeys. Simply tie up to the hotel’s deepwater dock, and the hotel staff will prepare the boat for your journey’s next leg while you indulge in the hotel’s Willow Creek Spa, play a round of golf on the par-3 course, or stroll the cobbled streets of Hamilton.

If you are entertaining on the private veranda of the Harbour Suite or aboard your yacht, you can recruit the services of Fairmont’s chef, whose signature dishes include seared tuna with pumpkin seed and black sesame seed crust.

And remember, in Bermuda, shorts are considered formal attire.
