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
Fairmont Southampton has a beautiful view. close to many touristic areas.
Comfortable rooms very friendly staff.
This will be my 3rd year staying at this hotel. I have travel there for the Bermuda Tripple Challenge Races
We travel in a large group of over 40 people & all stay there.
My husband and I booked our vacation through JetBlue Vacations, which may have been our first mistake, as I always feel that when you book directly, you have a better experience. The location of the hotel is beautiful - it is a short trolley ride to a private beach with a beach bar, bathrooms, etc. Right when you walk into the hotel, you are hit with an overwhelming smell of perfume/air freshener that seems to be pumped through the vents. We couldn't even have a drink in the lobby it was so bad. I even bought a beach bag in the gift shop and couldn't get the perfume smell out, no matter what I did. Our room was on the 5th floor and was disgusting. I did hear that lower floors have been remodeled, but ours had mildew on the ceiling, was outdated and not very comfortable to be in when it was raining outside because it just felt old and dirty. We had breakfast in the restaurant, which was extremely overpriced and cold when it arrived. I used to work in the hotel industry, so I hate to complain, but I wish I had. This hotel has such potential, and I think if you can get a lower floor, it would be a better experience.
We just returned from a surprise 50th birthday celebration for a dear friend. It was also a well-deserved "girls weekend" of 6. We were all very impressed with the staff of the Fairmont Southampton. Some of us travel frequently for work or family vacations and have stayed at many hotels/resorts and this staff was outstanding from the moment we arrived until our departure. I would like to personally thank Hasim from the Jasmine Lounge. I arrived with a terrible cold and he made me a pot of ginger/honey tea (his mom's cure) which did make me feel better. We highly recommend this hotel and plan to return.
We stayed here for a president's club trip with my husband's company. The staff did an amazing job of accommodating this large group. The grounds are very well maintained with a beautiful golf course. The hotel itself and rooms are a little dated, but we didn't spend much time in our room - we preferred the beach! It's quite a walk to the beach, but they have shuttles that take you back and forth pretty frequently. At the beach, there is a beachfront store, a beach bar, umbrellas/chairs, making for a peaceful beach experience. We enjoyed our stay - it was our first trip to Bermuda, so it's difficult to say if we'd choose Fairmont again - we may choose a more affordable option next stay. Having said that, I would definitely recommend this hotel if it's in your budget.
This beautiful resort has something for everyone. Near the Railway Trail, the 17th century Somerset Bridge (smallest drawbridge in the world), the Gibbs Lighthouse (183 steps to the best view of the island), the world famous Horseshoe Beach and many more Bermuda treasures, this Fairmont also houses great restaurants. The Mediterra offered one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The The Boundary Ssports Bar & Grill was a fun place to watch the Super Bowl while eating great food. The staff is incredibly amenable, willing to fulfill any need. Catching their ferry to Hamilton is handy. The bus stops are a quick hotel shuttle ride.As a travel writer, I found that this is THE place to stay in Bermuda.
