This sexy, eight-acre beauty tastefully revitalized the region’s southern coast when it opened in 2016—Bermuda’s first new-build hotel in nearly half a century. From cartography on the carpet to sweeping panoramas of the azure Atlantic—practically an art installation in the light-filled lobby—it’s apparent the minds that imagined this oceanfront retreat (helmed by financier Stephen King) wanted to steer clear of Caribbean clichés. Art-lined corridors, sourced from King’s private collection, and five-piece marble bathrooms add a dollop of Euro-chic, though the hotel is also a stunning reflection of Bermuda’s distinctive reefs and ridges. Suites are splattered in subtle sea and sand tones—no coral walls here. The two dining options also exhibit the hotel’s signature high-low tone: while Marée is a French-inflected tribute to seasonal eats, the ocean-facing Pink Beach Club (though it’s missing exterior walls, its hurricane-proof screens ensure a sturdy all-weather spot) is the more casual option, where breakfast plates, like the curry tofu scramble, and waffles, drizzled with Bermudan mulberry syrup, are the crowd pleasers.
In the Area
Lazing on the pink sand beach the hotel is named for is always an option, but if you tire of lounging, fear not: you’re in a world-renowned sailing, tennis, and golfing destination thanks to Bermuda’s varied topography. The island’s south side boasts its best vistas. Make sure to stop at Warwick Long Bay—a hit with families for its especially calm waters. Though it’s about an hour’s drive from the hotel, the Royal Naval Dockyard, on Bermuda’s western tip, is a must-visit for maritime history buffs: in the early 19th century, it held the distinction of being Britain’s largest naval base outside the United Kingdom.
How to Get There
This review is for a visit July 4-8.
Overall this resort is beautiful. Very modern resort clean lines, meticulously decorated and beautiful views. It definitely has a different feel then some of the more traditional resorts in the area.
However, I believe there is room for improvement.....
It is a very very quiet resort with mostly couples, but there were also a few family’s with children. There are 2 very small pools and most people went to the larger one. Personally I think they need to designate one as children’s only. I found children at main pool bit disrupting at such a quiet place and would probably work better for everyone. Overall pool area is stunning. And the pool service was 5 Star. There was also never an issue with getting a chair. No reed to rush in the morning which was wonderful. The beach is nice but not many people on it. I’m not sure why? Majority of people went to pool.
Rooms are large and beautiful, and all overlooked the ocean with a large balcony. It would be nice if there was a table and chairs to dine outside. Also, it tends to be loud I don’t think they did a great job with sound proofing. I heard full conversations with my neighbor form my bathroom. Also slamming of every door.
Amenities. Well there are none. They have a spa. And a fitness center. And I think I heard something about yoga on the beach? There is no gift shop so if you need anything be prepared to go into town. It would be great if they gave you a daily list of options of activities even if its not at resort. Or even a newspaper? Basically you check in and your on your own, and there is nothing. They need a concierge desk!!!! Everything is at one front desk. So I assume that is the concierge? It was strange and unclear.
Service. Maid service was spotty and they mostly cleaned later in day and was not great. One night they never cleared glasses from outside and barely touched out room. Nothing in bathroom appeared straightened and cleaned and towels not replenished. I also called front desk 2 times on for ice to be sent to room. They never delivered it. I had to physically go to desk and personally ask them for ice as well as having our room serviced. They were very apologetic and it was ultimately delivered, hours after my initial call. Overall this should not be happening in this caliber of a resort. The Bell service was excellent and always had a car ready for us. They were always super friendly and helpful.
Restaurants. The food at pink beach was excellent. High quality ingredients and excellent service. I Highly recommend it although I can only speak for breakfast and lunch. The drinks tend to be very weak for $15 a drink. I witnessed the bartender do a very careful measure not sure if he knew what he was doing. If you like cocktails I advise bringing your own for your room. The higher end restaurant Maree is pri fix which we were never told when we made our dinner reservation through front desk. This was nothing memorable and not someplace I would not make repeat visit to. Not to mention very expensive.
Overall, visually a beautiful resort but it has some work to do. It’s still new so it may take some time.
The Loren is by far the most luxurious and beautiful hotel in Bermuda. The rooms are stunning and modern with ocean views and the hotel is perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean with an infinity pool. There is also a beautiful beach to swim in as well with lounge chairs. TRULY AMAZING!! So romantic and intimate, great for couples and also in a great location in Bermuda. Got married in Bermuda and had the most amazing wedding dinner at Maree restaurant. The food is by far the best I had in Bermuda during my trip. The service was outstanding as well. Dirk, the catering manager went above and beyond to make our dinner special. All of the other people working at the hotel were so kind and professional and made our stay super enjoyable. HIGHLY recommended. A+ vacation. I will definitely be back with my new husband! I can't wait! Thank you! :-)
We just finished an amazing 4 day, 3 night stay at the Loren. Our ground floor room was immaculate and well furnished, with a gorgeous view overlooking wonderfully landscaped grounds to the ocean. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful - from Faisal who helped me secure a beautiful flower arrangement to celebrate our anniversary, to Rudy & Jeoffrey who took care of us by the pool, to Mr. Todd at the door, and the manager of the Pink Beach Club who helped us enjoy breakfast, a snack while retreating from rain showers, and a romantic dinner. Rudy, in particular, was so kind, considerate, and thoughtful - anticipating our needs. We enjoyed being able to walk from pool side to Pink Beach for a quick swim and back to our lounge chairs. Our picture below is (what I now realize was) the kids pool - which also worked great as a plunge pool. We’ll be back!
The Loren at Pink Beach is a very quiet and relaxing hotel. Room 205 has a wonderful ocean view that is like being on the back of a ship. We enjoy the spaciousness of the bedroom and bath with tub and walk-in shower. You will not be disappointed in the dining opportunities and pink beach access. The pool is small and does not a hot tub. Overall it's a great hotel with a friendly staff and only a 5-minute taxi ride to Tucker's Point and Mid Ocean golf courses.
This is an Amazing property and hotel !! The hotel is the newest on the island and beautiful...the service is impeccable !! It is a small boutique hotel so obviously will have somewhat limited amenities, but the property and the service are the best !! So nice to not be surrounded by crowds of people, and be pampered by all the hotel staff...can't really say enough about the staff...best service we have ever had...read some negative reviews which are complete nonsense !! Food at restaurants is good but not great...the whole experience more than makes up for it...fairly close to Hamilton where there are tons of good restaurants. Our only complaint is that small kids are allowed at the small adult pool even though there is a kids pool immediately adjacent...hard to relax with screaming toddlers in the pool...this would be an easy change to enhance the experience !! All in all one of the best places we have stayed and we frequently take luxury beach vacations...usually to the Caribbean, but now this is our new favorite !!! Besides the hotel...the island is truly amazing...when you come rent a Twizy ...but book early as they sell out quickly...oh and by the way...this is a real review as some have suggested many reviews are fake...again complete nonsense...if you believe the other reviews you will miss out on a great experience...we will be back...thanks to The Loren and all of their staff !! The Best !!
