When what was formerly Rosewood Tucker’s Point opened in 2009, it was Bermuda’s newest and most luxurious resort, and not much has changed. The handsome British Colonial manor house oozes country club charm, with period antiques, rich hardwood furniture and island-inspired artwork — all traits shared by the resort’s 88 spacious guestrooms, which feature endless views of the turquoise harbor.
Bed and Bath
Forget about gauche tropical decor. Each of Rosewood Bermuda’s guest rooms is impeccably styled as an elegant seaside retreat. Rooms feature luxurious amenities such as plantation-style furniture, flat-screen TVs, Egyptian cotton sheets and spacious outdoor balconies overlooking the turquoise waters of Castle Harbour. Gorgeous white tiled bathrooms feature huge standalone soaking tubs, his and hers sinks, and marble, stone and glass showers.
It may be a small boutique hotel, but expect a full-scale resort experience. Highlights include four swimming pools, tennis courts, a croquet lawn and a sprawling pink sand beach with a breezy open-air restaurant that’s perfect at lunchtime. Its 6,300-yard golf course is one of the island’s best, as is its Sense spa, which features an 18-head Silver TAG shower. When the dinner bell rings, enjoy Italian classics and all-you-can-eat antipasto at Sul Verde, but for a special night out make a reservation at the Point. Housed in a white-tableclothed dining room, with stunning floor-to-ceiling murals that once hung in Manhattan’s Pan Am Building, the chops and seafood restaurant has consistently been rated as one of finest in Bermuda.
How to Get There
The best part about the Rosewood was the beautifully renovated, brand new rooms. In addition, the resort never felt crowded even though it was booked to capacity when we were there.
There are still a few drawbacks to the hotel even though the rooms were truly beautiful. For starters, it's a bit of a hike to get to and from the beach- shuttles run every 30 minutes or so, and they also stop by the golf course, so it takes about 10-15 minutes. Sometimes there were too many people waiting for shuttles that did not promptly arrive, but the staff seemed to have mostly sorted that out after several guests complained. There also wasn't much staff serving lunch at the beach or pool, which was a bit of a miss for a high-end hotel. We're not particularly snobby travelers, and we still had a good time, but the service just wasn't exactly what you'd expect at this price point.
Because there are relatively few rooms on property, there aren't many restaurant options on-site (and the ones that are in the hotel are mostly so-so). We ended up going off property most nights for dinner, which generally required 25 minute, $40-$50 dollar taxi rides each way. We were traveling with family, and there were issues with our dinner reservations, arranged through the hotel concierge, several times throughout the trip. The staff was always gracious about the issues, but it did put a damper on several evenings.
Overall, it's a beautiful hotel but the on-site dining and service situations could probably be improved to make this resort an all around five star experience.
The location is beautiful, but the staff and service were not worthy of the hotel's five stars. The Rosewood name has a reputation for cleanliness and service. Sadly this trip was a tremendous disappointment.
Situated beautifully on the Island of Bermuda, the Rosewood at first appeared to be paradise. Unfortunately the service (or lack of service) tainted most of the trip. It is a shame because the resort is so beautiful.
Amazing stay, they have done such a nice job renovating the hotel. The service was very helpful. The rooms were extremely clean. The hotel is close to the airport, so you can start your vacation quickly after landing. The beach was extremely nice and the restaurants was yummy! Can't wait to return.
As anyone knows, the presentation and conditions of a golf course can be a critical element in enticing the affluent vacationers to come to a beautiful resort like the Rosewood Bermuda and then enjoy the amenities where they want to return and recommend to others they experience the resort services.
Playing the Tuckers Point Golf was a major disappointment.
The course was not properly prepared. The hole location had not been changedfor a full week resulting in the edges being worn and frayed. The holes were not round! Very unprofessional.
Also the flagsticks had many locations on the very front of the greens on downwind holes making it impossible to hit even a well executed shot close to the hole. Frustrating and not fair or fun. (Yes the wind blows a lot in Bermuda!) Whoever is assigned the important responsibility of setting the hole locations clearly does not know what he is doing and has no proper training in course setup.
They took what is nicely designed golf course and ruined the experience.
The Rosewood Bermuda exceeds expectations in all other areas of service from the personable staff, the food presentation, the pool, beach and more.
What a shame the excellence in management didn't filter down to the most important amenity to the facility, the Charles Banks designed golf course.
