Bermuda Hotels for special trip

Going to Bermuda in July for 60th birthday trip, just the 2 of us, no kids. We are looking for very nice hotel experience, nice beach. Understand that there are varying locales, but have never been to the island. I searched forum, no recent (in years) comments applicable. First substantial trip back to Caribbean since Nevis, where we got to see a really amazing Ferrari collection (thanks Mr. B).

Looking for perspective on Rosewood, Hamilton Princess, Loren, Azura, St. Regis. We are there 4 days, enjoy going out to nice restaurants, some historical experiences, and a bit of exploring. A couple of the hotels seem remote- St. Regis. and the Hamilton Princess appears to not be on a beach (but very available to town of Hamilton; website says shuttle to beach).

Thanks for info.

Bermuda is not in the Caribbean, nowhere near it. Its in the Atlantic. Hamilton Princess is in Hamilton, not an ideal location even with a shuttle to the beach. With only 4 days I would not bother with shuttles to beaches when there are hotels right on gorgeous beaches.

The best & most famous beaches are on the south coast, Elbow Beach, Horseshoe Bay, Jobsons Cove, Warwick Long Bay etc. As you mentioned, St Regis is remote but it is near St Georges which is a very charming town, very historical. its close to Tobacco Bay which is a very nice beach to visit. I've been to the Rosewood to look but not stayed, it is remote as well but a beautiful exclusive property. I don't think you can go wrong with any of your choices, its a matter of location and where you prefer to be. Loren and Azure are a bit more central, esp the latter and probably where I prefer to be but the more remote properties seem more upscale. But the island is small and the bus service very good esp along the south coast, taxis are available, you cannot rent a car on Bermuda as you probably already know.

Check out Cambridge Beaches - good friends who were very familiar with the island recommended it to us. We really enjoyed our stay there when we visited the island for the second time 40 years after we honeymooned in Bermuda. Wonderful staff, very comfortable rooms and itís on a very nice calm water beach.
