Unlike its smaller sister hotel, the Fairmont Hamilton Princess in Hamilton, this sprawling 99-acre beach resort is flush with on-site restaurants, amenities, and activities to keep you and your family busy. It also boasts one of the island's finest locations—especially if you plan to bask on Bermuda's pink sand beaches. Perched on a Southampton hill with 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Sound harbor with its archipelago of islets and cays, the resort sits directly next to Horseshoe Bay Beach, easily the island's most iconic slice of pink sand.

Those who'd prefer to stay on property however, are still in luck. In addition to three pools, tennis courts, dive center, 21,000-square-feet Willow Stream Spa, and the newly renamed Turtle Hill Golf Club—an 18-hole executive par three golf course with stunning water views throughout—the resort also has its own private pink sand beach, accessible via a quick trolley ride from the hotel lobby or a 10-minute walk.

The resort's many restaurants will not disappoint either. In fact, the resort has nine, with favorites including Bacci for family-friendly Italian; The Newport, a casual gastropub featuring one of the best burgers in Bermuda (the Serious Burger, made with Wagyu beef and served with a fried egg); the Waterlot Inn, an upscale steakhouse housed in a 17th-century Bermuda cottage; the Dock, a brand new outdoor cocktail lounge with small bites; and the Ocean Club, the resort's indoor/outdoor seafood restaurant with fresh fish daily. 

The resort's 593 tastefully decorated guest rooms feature elegant British colonial furnishings and Miller Harris bathroom products, and many have ocean and harbor view balconies. Tip: Join the Fairmont’s free President’s Club for complimentary Wi-Fi access.
