Hamilton Princess & Beach Club
The Grand Dame of Bermuda
What it is
A storied Bermuda resort with a regal history and 21st century makeover.
What it isn't
A small boutique property, though the Bermuda shorts-clad staff will go to great lengths to devise a bespoke experience.
What we think
Bermuda’s famous pink sands match the rosy hue of the Hamilton, originally built in 1885 after its harbor-front locale caught the eye of Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria. While its halls are full of history—Mark Twain was a fixture here, as was Ian Fleming—it’s also on the heels of a $100 million renovation in which all 400 rooms were updated (the property’s 43 suites were redesigned by Botelho Wood Architects) and three restaurants, an Exhale spa and 60-boat marina were added. Thanks to artwork by Andy Warhol, Banksy and Tom Wassermann, the stark lobby feels like grand gallery, though it’s the hotel’s quieter moments—slipping into a hammock by the oceanfront infinity pool, looking out to billowing sails on the harbor from the shore’s pink sands—that keeps guests coming back.
You're here because
You want a big resort with a glamorous old-world setting that’s full of top-notch amenities such as a slew of restaurants, a 5,400-square foot spa and a marina and motorized water sports.
