There are 410 elegant and beautiful guest rooms and suites of varying sizes and decor, many with private balcony, overlooking the turquoise waters of the harbor dotted with colorful sailboats and sleek yachts. The resort also offers a new ‘Fairmont Gold floor,’ which essentially is a hotel within a hotel that features private check-in and concierge, as well as special amenities, such as a private salon with honor bar, cocktail hour canapés, and complimentary breakfast.
The resort features a number of different restaurants that will satisfy even the most sophisticated palate. The meals prepared at Harley’s are cooked to perfection and it’s no surprise that this restaurant won the Best of Bermuda Gold Award in hotel dining. For travelers looking for a particularly romantic interlude, a candlelight dinner prepared by your very own butler on your private balcony would surely turn into a memory to cherish for a very long time. Afternoon tea, the true British kind and the best in Bermuda, I might add, at the Heritage Court is an event that should not be missed by anyone visiting the island. From the British silver tea sets and Belgian fine china to Italian fine woven linens, everything about the afternoon tea spells elegance and luxury. Heritage Court offers a large selection of fine rums and cigars available for smoking on the terrace.
The facilities at this resort include a fitness center and an outdoor freshwater as well as an outdoor saltwater pool. There is complimentary ferry service to its sister hotel, the Southampton Princess, which offers a private beach club, a golf course, 11 all-weather tennis courts (including seven lighted courts), fishing and water sports at the deep-water dock, and a full range of nightly entertainment.
The Inverurie Day Spa & Salon deserves special mention. A large variety of holistic treatments utilizing organic products are provided by internationally trained staff. “The emphasis is all on you, the client,” said Karen Urwin, the spa manager, a recent immigrant from Great Britain. The signature treatment is a couple’s massage done in the hotel room or suite followed by a candle-light dinner on the balcony.
