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
I loved the hotel decor, the room was great and the staff were helpful BUT...as breakfast is not included you have to order a la carte. I had French toast and an orange juice which came in a very small glass and was rather bitter. To my shock, when the bill came this small glass of not great orange juice was $12 which is obscene. I went and sat in the lounge bar and waited to order my drink. Bearing in mind you pay 17.5% service I was told they didn’t come and take your order, you had to come to the bar. Despite the very expensive drinks list they do not offer any nibbles to have with drinks which is poor. I was here for work so had to check out first thing but my flight was not until the evening. When I came back to collect my bags I asked if it was ok to go for a swim and get changed in the spa facilities. When I went down there I was told I had to pay $25 for a day pass. Despite having spent more than $1500 over my 2 day stay. All in all this place could be great if they didn’t try and fleece you at every turn.

The Loren was the most magical honeymoon we could have asked for. People waiting on us hand and foot, the desk arranged our excursions and taxis. We waited on a couch while they checked us in! Unbelievable service, views, food, etc. etc. I loved our time at the Loren and HIGHLY recommend it! Quiet and peaceful and tucked away. Perfect spot!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful five night stay at the Loren. Yes the bar was closed but there is a bar in the Pink Beach Club. We had a fixed price meal one night there that was fantastic and excellent service. We were so impressed with the individualized customer service — attentiveness, recommendations, reservations etc. The view from our lanai/room was so beautiful. We are already planning our return trip! Thank you to Cole and Vladimir for taking such great care of us! The taxi driver Jason took us on a tour of the island which we loved!
