Where to Stay in Bermuda in 2023 | Best Areas & Hotels

Where to Stay in Bermuda in 2023 | Best Areas & Hotels

Where to stay in Bermuda? You’ll know the answer to this question after reading this guide that we’ve prepared for you. Bermuda is a fabulous place, and with little preparation you can savor every inch of its legendary beaches and deep-blue ocean.

Where to Stay in Bermuda

When Juan de Bermúdez in 1505 discovered the 181 islands that we today call Bermuda, he probably didn’t expect that 500 years ahead in the future they would become one of the most attractive tourist locations in the world. And that’s a fact.

Today — or in 2022 — 85 000  visitors arrived in some part of the Islands to have the holiday of their dreams, and few of them (we suppose) left unsatisfied. What is Bermuda famous for?

The short answer to this question is — many things. The first and obvious thing is the beaches and the ocean. Located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (1,035 km from North Carolina) it probably looked like paradise to the early conquistadors and settlers.

The ocean is usually described as having a turquoise blue, and the beaches as unbelievably full of sand. Those of you who want to relax on the beach and swim in the ocean have come to the right place. The parks — usually adjunct to the beaches — are also quite nice and worth visiting.

Bermuda is famous for another thing not usually expected from islands in the middle of nowhere — its history. Being settled and civilized for more than half a millennium left its mark: mostly in its capital city, Hamilton, and its oldest city, St, George’s.

The historical heritage mostly consists of old Anglican churches, retired military forts, and a few interesting museums. If you’re interested in early colonial history, Bermuda can teach a lot of new and unexpected things. Finally, Bermuda is a famous paradise for golfers.

There’s a famous and usually huge golf course in almost every area in this guide, usually close to some beach and some park, and adjacent to one of Bermuda’s more luxurious hotels. Everybody would agree that it’s quite nice to do golf while looking and listening at the turquoise-coloured waves ebbing and flowing.

The 5 Best Parts of Bermuda

Bermuda is a small place: its whole territory amounts to only 54 km2. That means that almost every area is close to the center of the archipelago — Hamilton city. That being said, the differences between the areas amount to changes only in degrees, and not in quality.

n other words, they’re all quite similar to each other, and basically offer the same things. We think that the best areas include:

  • Hamilton: The capital of Bermuda, it’s the best place for newcomers, and those who are interested in the history of the place, and not only its beaches.
  • Mount Pleasant: The perfect choice if you prefer a classical vacation: it offers the best beaches in the whole region, including the famous Elbow beach.
  • Somerset Village and Hog Bay: Not as famous as the other parts of Bermudo, it’s probably the calmest and the most versatile part of the island.
  • East Bermuda: Another less famous part of Bermuda, mostly famous featuring the oldest city on the Island, and the super-interesting Bermuda Zoo.

Bermuda’s Best Areas and Hotels

The accommodation situation in Bermuda is quite specific, and even — from a certain point of view — a bit problematic. Тhere aren’t too many hotels in Bermuda, and that fact stays constant throughout every area in the archipelago.

The hotels noted in our guide are probably the only accommodation options you’ll find in that specific area. The second thing is not less problematic. Namely, there are almost no budget options anywhere!

Those hotels which are listed as budget in our guide are usually just cheaper villas or three-star hotels which would figure as mid-range (or even luxurious) in other, less upscale areas. Bermuda is a generally expensive place to have a vacation, but the money is generally well spent. Finally, something about the obviously good things.

The hotels in Bermuda are absolutely marvelous, and those which are listed as luxurious and even as mid-range are definitely out of this world. Almost all of them have restaurants, gardens, and multiple pools on the premises. If you plan on spending a lot of money, you’re going to have a blast.

1. Hamilton

If you’re coming to the Bermudas for the first time, Hamilton city is the obvious choice for you. The capital of the small group of islands, it’s Bermuda’s historical, cultural, and shopping center.

It’s almost 250 years old — it was found sometime around the beginning of the 18th — century, Hamilton is surprisingly rich in monuments and cultural attractions. Something you don’t usually expect from an island city.

The center of Hamilton is Front Street, where you’ll find most of the shops. Most of them are upscale and quite expensive, and quite elegantly furnished and decorated. An interesting fact about the buildings on this street is that they can’t be over two stories high — nothing, absolutely nothing, can disturb the famous Bermuda skyline.

Its rich colonial history makes Hamilton full of atypically old buildings and historical landmarks. Here are the three most important:

  • The Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity (also known as the Bermuda Cathedral) is the first of them, which is a late 20th century reproduction of an older building which was burned.
  • Fort Hamilton which was built in the 1870s, to guard the Royal British Navy. it offers a beautiful view of Hamilton and the Harbor.
  • Perot Post Office is the oldest post office in Bermuda, and the place where the first authentic Bermuda stamps were printed.

The lovers of nature and the outdoors will have a great time in Hamilton. First, there’s the beautifully kept Queen Elizabeth Park, which gives off a London-vibe to this Island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.

Second, probably the greatest attraction in Hamilton — Bermuda Aquarium, Natural History Museum & Zoo. Here you can learn everything about the flora and fauna of the general area, from monkeys to birds, from tortoises to fish.

Hamilton is not the cheapest place in the world, and the accommodation options are not great. It has to be noted that generally the hotels are quite expensive. On the other hand, they’re quite beautiful, usually offering beautiful gardens, swimming pools, and views of the city and the ocean.

Things to Do

  • Enjoy the nature inside and surrounding Hamilton. Go to Sea Express Ferry Service, Bermuda and find different ways to travel around the Islands. Don’t forget the parks: Queen Elizabeth park is an interconnected well-kept garden which reminds one of Kensington or London’s Hyde Park, signaling Bermuda’s British heritage. The Admiralty House Park is also great, and usually not crowded with tourists.
  • Bermuda Aquarium, Natural History Museum & Zoo is probably the greatest attraction in Hamilton. Fish, monkeys, turtles, and birds fill up this place from the fairy tales. Also, one of the oldest coral formations could be found here. Bermuda is a marvel of nature, and the museum and the zoo are a must see place.
  • Quite unique for an Island city, typically known for its sandy beaches, Hamilton has a lot to offer in terms of history and old architecture. Visit — in the following order these three places:The Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity which is a beautiful Anglican church; Fort Hamilton which serves as witness to the military importance of Bermuda; and  Perot Post Office where the first Bermuda stamp was printed.
  • Go to the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute and have an experience you want to forget. Experience a lot of different things connected to the ocean in a series of interactive exhibits that’ll teach you a lot about the Bermuda Triangle, the impact of people on the Marine ecology, etc.

 Where to Eat

  • Mad Hatters located in the western part of Hamilton city, is a very tasty seafood restaurant. It offers an unexpected combination of “Classic European with a Thai/North-American fusion”, as they say on their website. Their chefs are one of the most famous in their region, and their menus are always changing — following the seasons. Finally, the walls are decorated with different kinds of hats that you can take, if you want, hence the name of the restaurant.
  • Crown & Anchor is famous for its stylish interior, great food, captivating entertainment program, and unforgettable rum. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, brunch and breakfast food, mostly based on traditional recipes. There is an extensive vine, cocktail and cognac list, charged by the glass. Also, kids under five don’t have to pay if they order from the children’s menu.
  • Barracuda Grill is regarded as one of Bermuda’s most famous contemporary restaurants. The chops and the seafood — prepared in a contemporary way by trained chefs — in combination with the warm interior, offer an unforgettable experience. The place is particularly known for its cocktails to open the night, and attention to details. The restaurant is usually crowded, so make sure you make your reservations.

Hamilton Budget Hotels

  • Oxford House is a three-star hotel located in the heart of Hamilton. Maybe the only cheaper option in this place, it offers free Wi-Fi throughout the premises, and all of the rooms feature a plasma TV, a tea/coffee maker, and a private bathroom — some of the rooms also have a sitting area. A tasty breakfast is served every morning, which you can enjoy while sitting or looking at the adjoining garden.

2. Mount Pleasant

Elbow Beach in Bermuda, one of the best places to stay in the area, with gorgeous teal water lapping onto a serene white sand beach

Just a few kilometers to the south from Hamilton lies Mount Pleasant, the most “beachy” area on the whole of Bermuda. If you want to spend your whole vacation lying on the beach and swimming in the ocean, this is the right place to be.

Basically, it’s the perfect place to have a regular, sunny holiday, that’ll help you fill your batteries and find your inner peace after a hardworking year on the mainland. The beaches, obviously, are the main attraction in Mount Pleasant.

The list is practically endless, but first you have to visit the most famous one, Elbow beach. Tranquil, deep blue water, sand everywhere, and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to be. You’ll probably recognize the place, because it made its appearance in everybody’s favorite TV series, The Sopranos.

But, Elbow beach is not the only one that’s worth visiting in this area. Here a short list of the most famous beaches:

  • Coral Beach;
  • Surf Side Beach;
  • Marley Beach;
  • Mermaid Beach;
  • Warwick Long Bay;
  • Angle Beach;
  • Middle Beach;
  • Horseshoe Bay Cove;
  • Cross Bay Beach;

As you can see, the list is practically endless. The beaches are close to each other, located on the southern side of the island, and they’re quite easy to reach. You can visit most of them during your stay in Mount Pleasant.

All of them are quite close — even adjacent — to some beautiful parks that you can go to if you feel tired from all the sand and sun. Southlands Park, for example, is near Marley Beach; Astwood Park lies between Marley Beach and Mermaid beach; South Shore Park, which is probably the biggest park in the area, and so on.

Having plenty of beaches doesn’t mean that this area lacks restaurants and hotels — quite on the opposite. In relation to the accommodation options, Mount Pleasant offers a wider range of hotels in comparison to Hamilton.

But, keep in mind that they’re still quite expensive, and there are not many budget options. The restaurants, on the other hand, are quite versatile — both in terms of prices and the cousins they offer: from food-trucks and takeaways, to fancy upscale restaurants.

Things to Do

  • You don’t choose Mount Pleasant as your central location without doing it for the beaches. The palette you can choose from is quite wide, starting from the legendary Elbow beach, to Cross Bay Beach on the other end of the coast.
  • Close to the beaches you can find some quite decent parks, where you can relax from the relaxing on the sand and the sun. We recommend the South Shore Park first of all, since it’s the biggest and close to at least three beaches: Warwick Long Bay, Angle Beach, and Middle Beach. But don’t forget the other parks, particularly, Southlands Park and Astwood Park.
  • One thing which makes Mount Pleasant quite a unique place, is its preoccupation with golf. Here you’ll have a great golf course where you can both play — if you already know how — or learn how to play. We recommend Belmont Hills Golf Club and Riddell’s Bay Golf & Country Club on the northern side of the island (overlooking Hamilton) and Turtle Hill Golf Club at Fairmont Southampton on the southern part of the island.
  • If you’re a fan of churches and christian architecture, the Bermuda Cathedral in Hamilton is not the only one worth visiting. St. Anne’s Church was built in the early 17th century by the colonizers from cedar, but was later rebuilt (in 1717) in white and got it’s distinctive look. This Anglican church was the place where both the first official Bermuda baptism and marriage were being held.

Where to Eat

  • Lost In The Triangle is a seafood restaurant that has won the People’s choice award three years in a row! Supplied with fresh fish from the local Bermuda fishermen it offers everything that comes from the sea: fish, lobster, shrimp, soups and salads — with a special offer for kids.
  • Cafe Lido is a Mediterranean restaurant located directly on the famous Elbow beach. It’s a great place working from Tuesday to Sunday, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. It’s a particularly great place to be during special days and holidays, like Christmas and Thanksgiving day.
  • Fourways Restaurant & Inn is probably the most upscale eating place in the area, located in a traditional and old Bermuda building — inside the Fourways Inn hotel. It offers basically everything, from sushi to roasted meat, from seafood to sandwiches. Also, it offers live piano music every night.

Mount Pleasant Budget Hotels

  • Fourways Inn is a relatively cheap three-star hotel (you won’t find any two or three-star hotels in this area). It offers an outdoor swimming pool, a beautiful garden, and a great bar on the premises. Almost every room offers a view to the ocean, to the pool, or to the garden. The on-site restaurant — yes, there’s one — serves a typical, old-school French cuisine.
  • 7 Arches is another relatively-cheaper three-star hotel in the Mount Pleasant area. The rooms have air-conditioning, free Wi-fi, a kitchen area furnished with a fridge and a microwave, and flat screen TVs. Some of the rooms — not all — have a sitting area and a terrace.

Mount Pleasant Mid-Range Hotels

  • Sandpiper Apartments is a relatively cheap (or at least cheaper) four-star hotel. Every room has a sitting area, a kitchen — furnished with an oven, a fridge, and a microwave — and a balcony overlooking the pool and the garden. Yes, there’s an outdoor pool on the premises, in which you can dip in wherever you want. The hotel is particularly suitable for couples.
  • Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa is another cheaper four-star hotel, which due to the context, can be considered as a mid-range hotel. Located on the harbor, it offers practically everything: an outdoor swimming pool, a golf-course, a fitness center and a hot tub. There’s also a restaurant and a bar on the premises, and obviously, the breakfast — served at the restaurant — is quite delicious.  

Mount Pleasant Luxury Hotels

  • Azura Bermuda is probably the best hotel in the area. A real beauty in every possible way, it has a restaurant, a swimming pool, a fitness center, and a bar — practically everything for a relaxing vacation. All of the rooms have free Wi-Fi, a coffee machine, and a shower, and some of them offer a kitchen, a sitting area, a microwave and a fridge. But the best thing is that the hotel is directly located on the beach front, with a private beach of its own.
  • Watercolours is a superb four-star hotel located on the other side of Mount Pleasant, opposite Azura Bermuda. It has a beautiful garden, a bar, an outdoor swimming pool, and a barbeque facility on the premises. All of the rooms offer a view of the ocean, free Wi-Fi, and seating area. Every morning you can savor the beautiful breakfast before going to the beach.

3. Somerset Village and and Hog Bay

Located to the west of Hamilton and Mount Pleasant lie Somerset Village and Hog Bay, two beautiful, let us call them villages, which offer a slightly different view of Bermuda.

Being 15 kilometers away from the capitol, these two areas are slightly more secluded and not as much visited by tourists. But they offer as many interesting things as Hamilton, and as beautiful beaches as Mount Pleasant. Generally, the whole west side of Bermuda is a hidden gem for potential visitors.

There are plenty of beaches around Somerset Village and a lot of parks around Hog Bay. Logically, if you want to relax in the sun and swim in the ocean, find your accommodation near the first place, and if you prefer parks and recreation — and especially golf — Hog Bay is the right place for you.

Cambridge Beaches, Long Bay Beach, and Sugar Cane Point Beach are the three most famous beaches in Somerset Village and you make sure that you visit them.

Also, Somerset Village is great if you need to do some shopping in supermarkets and generally feel like strolling in an urban area. For the lovers of sport, there’s both the Somerset Cricket Club Inc. and the Basketball Court.

If you’re a fan of parks and golf, Hog Bay is the right place for you. Hog Bay Park is one of the biggest parks in the whole of Bermuda, but there’s also the West Whale Bay Park in the southern parts of the area.

Port Royal Golf Course is a landscaped 18-hole golf with a beautiful view of the ocean. The lovers of golf have finally found their Eden. The hotel and restaurant situation is not significantly different in the west of Hamilton.

The hotels are still expensive — even the budget and the mid-range ones — and the luxurious hotels are extremely beautiful and posh. There’s a lot of restaurant options, but if you’re a foodie, stick to Somerset Village and not Hog Bay — both the quality and the quantity favor the first.

Things to Do

  • Make full use of the beach capacities of Somerset Village and visit its three most important beaches: Cambridge Beaches, Long Bay Beach, and Sugar Cane Point Beach. Also, take a break at some of the adjacent parks. They’re (both the beaches and the parks) as beautiful as the ones found at Mount Pleasant, but not as crowded.
  • Spend your time golfing in Hog Bay, at definitely the best golf course in all of Bermuda. Port Royal Golf Course offers both beautiful golf courses and marvelous views of the ocean. There’s also a tennis court on the premises, a beach, and a hotel.
  • The western part of Bermuda is not without its cultural heritage. Let’s not forget its British colonial origins. First, visit Fort Scaur located between Hog Bay and Somerset Village, built in 1870, when the American-British diplomacy was on the verge of collapse. The fort was built in such a way, so it can’t be seen from the sea.
  • Travel to the utmost north-eastern side of the island (on the right from Somerset Village) and reach its tip. There you’ll find two different attractions that are definitely worth seeing. Dolphin Quest Bermuda where you can swim with the dolphins; and the National Museum of Bermuda where you can find out everything about the 500 year old history of the Bermuda Islands.

Where to Eat

  • Pastel Bermuda is a bar & grill on the northern side of Somerset Village, part of the Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa, located near one of its pools. It offers a great variety of seafood, such as fish tacos, sushi, and poke bowls. The view is quite unforgettable, especially if you enjoy it with a great cocktail in your hand and the restaurant patented rainbow sherbet.
  • Bella Vista Bar & Grill is a three in one restaurant — a bar & grill, an Italian restaurant, and a seafood restaurant — located inside the Port Royal Golf Course, in the center of Hog Bay. It’s a great place to grab a bite — particularly lunch — after a hard game of golfing in the morning or in the afternoon.
  • Frog & Onion Pub and Restaurant located near the National Museum of Bermuda, and the Royal Naval Dockyard and offers traditional English pub food. It has been working for around thirty years (it was opened 1992) and it’s a cozy place to watch some TV and enjoy a tasty pint. It has four indoor and two outdoor dining areas, with a beautiful view of the ocean.

Somerset Village and and Hog Bay Budget Hotels

  • Willowbank Resort is probably the cheapest hotel you’ll find in this side of Bermuda. There’s free parking and free Wi-Fi, but also an outdoor swimming pool and a fitness center on the premises. Like most of the hotels in this area, it has a private beach on which you can relax without a noisy crowd. The rooms are furnished with flat screen TVs and private bathrooms, and offer a view either to the ocean, or to the beautiful hotel garden.
  • Beautiful 1-Bed House in Somerset Village is definitely the cheapest accommodation in the area located in a beautiful property with a nice garden. It offers a whole apartment just for you (and/or your family), furnished air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, a TV, a completely equipped kitchen, and one bathroom.

Somerset Village and and Hog Bay Mid-Range Hotels

  • Pauls Oceanview with Amazing Sunsets is a nice three-star mid-range hotel located in Hog Bay. The apartment has air-conditioning and Wi-Fi, but also one bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting area, and one bathroom. There’s also a TV, a patio, a garden, and a barbeque facility. The apartment has a spectacular ocean view, and it’s particularly recommended (in the reviews) for couples.
  • Bermuda Connections Guest House is a slightly cheaper four-star hotel that in the context of the Bermuda accommodation options can be considered as a mid-range option. It’s quite beautiful and richly furnished, with a small outdoor pool, a nice patio and a garden, and a balcony. The rooms are air-conditioned and have free Wi-Fi.

Somerset Village and and Hog Bay Luxury Hotels

  • Pompano Beach Club is a beautiful four-star hotel located in Hog Bay, directly set on Pompano Beach. It offers no less than three restaurants, two outdoor pools, free Wi-Fi all over the premises, and a hot tub. There is also both a beach bar — located on the private beach of the hotel — and a bar next to the pool. The rooms are furnished in a modern way, and the hotel itself offers a wide range of activities, from water surfing to scuba diving.
  • Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa is an extremely beautiful and luxurious four-star hotel located on the northern side of Somerset Village. The hotel has no less than four private beaches, two outdoor swimming pools, a tennis court, a spa center, a watersport center, a restaurant and a bar. Almost all of the rooms have patios and balconies, and the bathrooms are made from marble. Should we add something more?

4. East Bermuda

Neat cross-bay photo of Flatts, one of the best places to stay in Bermuda

FLATTS, BERMUDA -15 FEBRUARY 2015- Editorial: The colorful village of Flatts, in the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda, is built around the Harrington Sound lagoon and the Flatts inlet/EQRoy/Shutterstock

We talked about every part of Bermuda, except the whole eastern part. Consisting of broadly two smaller areas — Flatts Village, quite near Hamilton, St. George’s on the easternmost side of Bermuda, and Tucker’s Town in between them.

Being the last area in this guide doesn’t mean anything, since East Bermuda is as fun and as interesting as the rest of Bermuda — even better in some things.

St. George’s, for example, is officially „the oldest continuously-inhabited British town in the New World“ the third one which was settled, after Jamestown, Virginia and Cupids, Newfoundland. It’s definitely the most important historical place in Bermuda, and it’s been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a long time.

The 400-year-old-town offers a lot of things, like Fort St. Catherine (a fort turned museum), St. Peter’s Church, which is the oldest Anglican church on Bermuda, the gothic Unfinished Church, and St. George’s Historical Society Museum, which holds — amongst other things — a letter from George Washington.

Also, go to the interesting Kings Square and breathe the atmosphere of this ancient island city. Not everything in East Bermuda is about St. George’s: both Flatts Village and Tucker’s Town offer most of the attractions typical of Bermuda, beaches, parks, and golf courses.

Tucker’s Point Golf Club in Tucker town is basically huge, and next to it is The Mid Ocean Club which is equally beautiful. Easto of them are Windsor Beach and Frick’s Beach which are also worth visiting.

Finally, Flatts Village offers one of the greatest attractions in this part of Bermuda: Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, which is small but quite charming, full of marine and land animals, as well as a museum.

Between Flats Village and St. George’s, on the other hand, lie the unforgettable Crystal and Fantasy Caves which you can’t miss. We must point out that the hotel situation is not different from the other parts of Bermuda.

There are almost no budget options, a small amount of mid-range, and a lot of great, luxurious but very expensive five-star hotels. East Bermuda is generally more family friendly, but definitely not a budget place.

Things to Do

  • Discover the historical perplexities of the oldest continuously existing colonial town in the “New World” (from the perspective of Europe). Visit two beautiful churches, one of them unfinished, and learn about the history of the Anglican church in Bermuda. After that go Fort St. Catherine and feel the military aspect; and finally to the St. George’s Historical Society Museum for a general overview.
  • We said that Mount Pleasant is famous for its beaches, but East Bermuda is not far behind: Windsor Beach and Frick’s Beach in Tucker Town, Tobacco Bay and St Catherine’s Beach in St. George’s, and John Smith’s Bay Beach located in between Flats Village, and Tucker Town. Sandy, sunny, with the beautiful ocean in front of them, they make you remember that Bermuda is mostly famous for them, and not for its history.
  • Play a game or two of golf, alone or with your friends. East Bermuda is a golfers paradise, as there’s a golf course anyway you turn your head. Tucker’s Point Golf Club and The Mid Ocean Club in Tucker Town; St.George’s Golf Course ns St. George’s; and Ocean View Golf Course near Flats Village are the most famous.
  • If you’re a fan of nature, and want to learn more about the natural history of Bermuda and its flora and fauna, you have to visit the two following places: first, Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo in Flats Visit, which is especially great for kids; and Crystal and Fantasy Caves located between St. George’s and Flat Village, which is not particularly kid’s friendly.

Where to Eat

  • The Swizzle Inn at Bailey’s Bay is the oldest pub in Bermuda. Famous for its great atmosphere, food and drink, the pub is mostly famous for its hunder-something old drink, the Rum Swizzle invented in the early 1900’s.There’s bee, ale and vine — all of them equally good, and a lot of grilled and deep fried stuff.
  • Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio Restaurant is a great seafood restaurant located in the center of the historic St. George, overlooking the harbor. It’s famous for upholding the traditional Bermuda cuisine, like the Wahoo nuggets, the Wiener Schnitzel, the rockfish Picasso,  and the award winning fish chowder.
  • Located in the beautiful St. Regis hotel, BLT Steak NY at the St. Regis Bermuda Resort is a beautiful restaurant particularly suitable for fine dining. A light menu for your breakfast, and steaks for lunch and dinner — prepare yourself for an unforgettable dining experience.

East Bermuda Budget Hotels

East Bermuda Mid-Range Hotels

  • Grotto Bay Beach Resort is a marvelous four-star hotel that given the circumstance can be considered as a mid-range hotel (in any other company, it would surely count as a luxurious hotel). It offers a private beach, an outdoor swimming pool, a patio, a terrace, and a bar.Every room has air-conditioning, a mini fridge, and a coffee maker. The breakfast served every morning is also quite great.
  • Coral Sea private beachfront panorama with infinity pool is on our mid-range list, due to the before mentioned lack of options. It’s a private villa with five rooms, a kitchen, sitting and dining areas, an outdoor infinity pool, a parking lot and a beautiful garden. The villa also has a barbeque area and a terrace, and is completely pet friendly.

East Bermuda Luxury Hotels

  • The Loren at Pink Beach is a five star hotel with no less than two outdoor pools. There are also two bars, and two restaurants on the premises — which serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner — and an extra luxurious spa, and a great gym. The rooms are furnished with plasma TVs, and balconies overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Finally, the hotel has its own private beach, and is completely pet friendly.
  • St George’s Club is a five-star facility, located just five minutes from St. George’s center. The facility is basically a lot of beautifully furnished cottages with private balconies, patios and kitchens. There’s a swimming pool, a private beach, and a garden on the premises. For the extreme lovers of sport, there is also a tennis court and a golf course near the cottages.
