The allure, romance and striking natural beauty of Bermuda have long made it a popular choice for honeymooners looking to elevate their island escape. Known for casual elegance and first-class service, Bermuda's collection of luxury hotel properties make it all the more tempting. Here are some of the island hotels and resorts known to attract newlyweds and other couples celebrating special occasions.
The Reefs Resort & Club
The staff at Southampton's The Reefs Resort & Club, an oceanfront boutique hotel along the island's famous South Shore, prides itself on taking care of the details so you can take care of the rest. It's just the right recipe for a honeymoon.
The Reefs' romance package includes an ocean view room for five nights, a welcome Rum Swizzle, Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival, two 60-minute massages (one for each of you) and – best of all – a romantic dinner on the beach.
Elbow Beach Bermuda
An oceanfront enclave of classic style and contemporary luxury located on 50 acres of beachfront property, Elbow Beach Bermuda will deliver bliss for any honeymooners. Snorkel amidst colourful coral reefs and a diverse array of marine life. Get lost in a lush garden. Take long sunset walks on a private ribbon of pink-sand beach. That’s Bermuda. And that’s a honeymoon you’ll never forget.
Royal Palms Hotel
Located at the end of a tree-lined country lane on the outskirts of the City of Hamilton, the Royal Palms Hotel often gives guests the feeling they've stepped back in time. The intimate setting, detail-oriented staff and blossoming gardens all combine to make it a wonderful home base on your Bermuda honeymoon. Make sure to pay a visit to the extensive wine cellar.
Enjoy stunning pink-sand beaches and a swoon-worthy romantic island setting filled with all the amenities newlyweds would want. Of course, you may just end up spending quality time on your private balcony, soaking in the postcard-perfect view.
Fairmont Southampton's honeymoon package includes Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in your room when you arrive, a 60-minute couples massage, dinner for two at the historic Waterlot Inn and much more.
Nestled on a private peninsula on the island's West End, Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa features 44 cottages, three restaurants, a world-class spa and secluded beaches around every corner. Sink into a whirlpool, marvel at panoramic views of the Atlantic or admire the timeless style of a 300-year-old former home of a sea captain. The resort is adults-only, which guarantees a measure of peace and quiet.
You could call Rosewood Bermuda's Manor House Suite a home away from home with an extra layer of romance. It’s the perfect honeymoon escape, with a king-sized bed beneath a crowning canopy, your own wet bar and a private terrace with sweeping waterfront views of Castle Harbour. Start with a spa treatment to set the mood for relaxing and reconnecting.
