Rosewood Tucker's Point Hotel & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Rosewood properties are generally known for drawing an affluent clientele, and Tucker's Point is no different. As a result, you will pay the island's most expensive rates. But if you can afford it, you'd be a fool to pass it up -- no other property on the island has quite the sparkle and shine of this stunning 200-acre resort with immaculate grounds, four pools, four restaurants, a championship golf course, a private beach, a tranquil spa, and spacious rooms featuring million-dollar views.
Fairmont Southampton Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Built in the early 1970s, the iconic "Big Pink Lady on the Hill" is easily the most recognizable hotel in Bermuda -- and, following a 21st-century renovation, it's still one of the nicest. No other hotel comes close to touching this 593-room property's laundry list of amenities, which includes eight restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, a nightclub, a spectacular spa, two pools, a private beach, tons of meeting spaces, a kids' club, an amphitheater, and a retail wing -- all for an amazing rate (all things considered). On the downside, rooms could use some updates, and the 100-acre resort's sprawling layout means long walks just to get to the beach.
Elbow Beach, Bermuda Rating: 4.0 Pearls
A tranquil Mandarin Oriental signature spa, three restaurants, a beautiful pool, a half mile of private beachfront, and recently renovated rooms are among the perks at this elegant 50-acre resort. But if you are coming solely for the Mandarin Oriental affiliation, you’ll likely be disappointed, as the hotel doesn’t quite live up to its parent company’s prestige. Still, based on its merits alone, this hilltop property is one of Bermuda’s best options, outdoing similarly priced resorts like The Reefs and Pompano Beach Club.
Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls
This 96-room, 30-acre resort trumps almost every other resort in Bermuda as far as style and sophistication are concerned. Of course, you’ll pay some of the island’s highest rates to enjoy it. But with its two stunning pools, expansive spa, four private beaches, three restaurants, and some of the most beautifully landscaped grounds around, you might just consider it a worthwhile investment.
The Reefs Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Location is everything at this cliff-top resort in Southampton Parish. Expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean dominate everywhere -- from the 65 rooms and 19 condos (all of which have ocean-view balconies) to the pool, private beach, and three restaurants. But the hotel also boasts a spa, a wonderful infinity pool, and great access to the area's attractions.
