Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, and even actor Michael Douglas are busy developing Bermudan resorts for next year and beyond. For now, these new or newly renovated retreats are great spots for a proper Bermy getaway.
Hamilton Princess & Beach Club: Bermuda’s 132-year-old grande dame—and the America’s Cup host hotel—emerged from a $100 million renovation last year with redesigned rooms, a 60-berth marina, a restaurant by Marcus Samuelsson, and a world-class art collection featuring works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Nelson Mandela.

Hawkins Island: Richard Branson’s Necker Island is the inspiration for this 26-acre private-island resort, located a 10-minute speedboat ride from Hamilton. The fully staffed exclusive-use property—slated to open in May—will eventually accommodate up to 16 guests in a white-roofed main house and a converted guard tower. Reservations available through email@example.com
The Loren at Pink Beach: This contemporary hotel and residence complex, which opened in February on the site of the former Pink Beach Club, strikes a sophisticated tone with modern design, stunning ocean views, and two inter-national restaurants. (thelorenhotel.com)
Coral Beach & Tennis Club: Quintessential Bermuda at its best, this 26-acre members-only resort comprises 22 rooms, six suites, and 10 cottages, some of which are newly renovated. Exclusivity is key and perks are plenty, from a private tennis complex and members’ clubhouse to guaranteed tee times at elite golf courses like Mid Ocean Club and Port Royal. (Nonmembers can book stays with the referral of an existing member.) (coralbeachclub.com)
