Set on 100 manicured acres between Bermuda’s rolling hills and a private slice of sand, this is Bermuda’s largest resort and it delivers all the amenities you’d expect with that title. It starts with that aforementioned beach and continues with two freeform resort pools, an 18-hole golf course and a stunning 31,000-square-foot spa. Eight on-site restaurants include standouts Ocean Club, serving local seafood right on the beach, and Waterlot Inn, an award-winning dockside steakhouse set on Jew’s Bay. Guestrooms are done in an elegant British colonial style with marble bathroom stocked with Miller Harris bath products. Best of all, every guestroom has a private balcony with Atlantic, harbor or golf course views.
In the Area
Everything you need to enjoy your Bermuda vacay is found right on this resort’s 100-acre campus, but if you want to experience historic Hamilton there’s a ferry that will deposit you at the waterfront Fairmont Hamilton Princess near shops, bars and restaurants. The resort’s pink sand beach is set on a secluded cove and guests have access to chaise lounges, shade umbrellas, towels and lockers. Bermuda is the “shipwreck” capital of the Atlantic making for some of the best diving in the Caribbean and beginners to instructor levels can explore them with Dive Bermuda, with over 30 years of experience on the islands. The resort’s Turtle Hill Golf Club is an 18-hole, par-three gem with awesome Atlantic views, dramatic elevation changes and frustrating (but beautiful) water hazards. Add strong coastal winds and this challenging 2,684-yard course is sure to challenge the short game of even the best duffers.
How to Get There
The property was beautiful and provides several dining choices to give you a nice variety. Entrainment in the Jasmine lounge was always enjoyable. Our room was spacious and very up to date. The thing that really stood out was the staff. They were extremely friendly, helpful and courteous.
Enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff were great. Breakfast at Windows on the sound was great. Polycarp was our server and was so nice. Phillip was the manager who also took such great care of us recommending many places to visit and experience.
Myself and two friends stayed at the Fairmont Southampton for 4 nights in April. Check-in was easy and relatively fast, staff in general was helpful and friendly. The hotel is pretty big and have several floors (several high end shops on the floor above check-in). The hotel to me more falls into the category of an older historic type hotel that has an old but nice setup (clean and well maintained). We stayed on the 3rd floor is a recently renovated room (the room was clean and decent size; not as modernized and updated as I would like). The one thing I would change about the room is the bathroom(update the shower head and tub to be more chic and luxurious).There is a double sink in the bathroom and the shower and toilet is separated by a door, leaving the sink in an open plan outside that door. There is a large walk in closet just off entrance to the room( in it are hanging space with plenty of hangers, several drawers to store your clothes, safe, iron/iron board; nice area to store your clothes and suitcases). The hotel offers free shuttle bus down the hill to take the public bus into Hamilton (easy trip in which you can purchase token from concierge, if I remember correctly its about $2.75 us); you can also take the shuttle bus going down the opposite hill to take the public bus to Horseshoe Bay(easy and quick ride). The hotel lobby/restaurant provides entertainment on weekends with a live band (was relaxing and enjoyable). I would definitely recommend this hotel; just come with the expectations of not going to a completely modernized updated hotel, but more of rustic dated hotel.
No bugs; No trash; Nothing but Wonderful to report ! Get your credit cards empty, because you'll pay like you're a movie star (I actually got close to Michael Douglas in the airport :). Restaurants were nice; Beaches were lovely with not too many people; Travel all over the island was easy on both the bus lines or a scooter (Great maps at the front desk !). The view from my room was a little crappy.. but it's Paradise (how bad could it be ?) ! Made me get out of the room :)
The hotel runs 3 free boat shuttles daily.. from TWO (2) different departure sites.. over to the town of Hamilton. Ask at the concierge desk. A free shuttle bus will take you to the boat ! TRY.. to visit the cruise terminal at the "Royal Naval Dockyard". Really beautiful over on that end of the island :)
Wow!! What a delicious meal. The amazing seafood, coupled with spectacular ocean views, made for a perfect dinner.
Our Server, Steevan, was attentive, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. Be sure to ask for Steevan, by name, to ensure a great experience.
