Where to stay

The guest register at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club (managed by Fairmont) has been signed by a number of high-profile guests, one of the most regular being James Bond creator Ian Fleming. The other side of Hamilton Harbour is home to the upscale Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort and Spa.

St. George’s Club Hotel offers 48 renovated, oceanfront cottages in the UNESCO-designated site of St. George’s, while the Grotto Bay Beach Resort and Spa is spread across 20 acres of pristine beauty in Bailey’s Bay. The spa itself is set within a 500,000-year-old cave.

The cliffside Reefs Resort and Club anchors the South Shore, along with the Fairmont Southampton, which is set to reopen in 2024 after a major refurbishment. And up in Somerset Village, the recently revitalized Cambridge Beaches, which opened in 1923, is a dreamland of private cottages and suites. GOTOBERMUDA.COM
