Elbow Beach Review

This Mandarin Oriental property trails behind its parent company's world-class finesse, but there are many highly appealing components that make Elbow Beach worth a stay. Foremost is its proximity to the beach, even if that means crossing a long series of lawns. In fact, these forced cross-campus walks give the property a breezier feel than that of the Fairmont Southampton, the island's other outsize upscale resort. Elbow Beach closed its main building at the end of 2009 and now markets itself as a "downsized, more intimate resort." All rooms are tucked away in cottages dotted through 50 acres of lush gardens. The resort's five restaurants have something for everyone, and there's pool-front service. The spa is the most superlative in Bermuda because of its pervasive sense of tranquillity—it's here that the Mandarin touch is fully realized.

    Elbow Beach Review

    Fodor's is out of date - the main building at Elbow Beach is closed - only the 75 freestanding units and two cottages remain. They are completely remodeled and absolutely lovely. Highly recommend Elbow Beach!
