A Look Ahead at Bermuda Lodgings
Traveling to Bermuda in the near future? Be sure to keep an eye on a few of the highly anticipated headlines within the island’s local resort scene.
Excitement surrounds the latest announcements from Morgan’s Point developers about the construction of a luxurious hotel, golf course, and marina resort to rival the famous Atlantis getaway in the Bahamas. Located in Southampton, this groundbreaking hotel is expected to open by summer 2016. A buzz also surrounds the site of the former Sonesta Beach resort, which was closed and later demolished following hurricane damage. Although the property was recently purchased by the Green family of Bermuda, no firm plans for future development have been released.
In addition to the construction of several new hotels across the island, many existing resorts are set to receive major facelifts moving into 2014. Among them is the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, an international favorite known for its prime location, acclaimed service, and beautiful view. The development of popular cottage resort 9 Beaches, which was closed in 2010, is another topic of excitement. Though plagued with governmental and funding issues, this property’s eagerly anticipated reopening date is slated for late summer of 2015. The waterfront Pink Beach Club in Tucker’s Town is also planning extensive renovations during the upcoming off-season.
