In Bermuda you will find legendary pink sand beaches brushed by gentle surf, palm trees swaying in the breeze, 170 varieties of sub-tropical flowers splashing colour and fragrance everywhere you go, pastel-coloured houses, stately mansions covered in lush greenery, ancient forts, narrow country lanes and Bermuda shorts. Add to that a warm, sub-tropical climate and romantic / historic old-world charm, and it’s no wonder Bermuda has been voted “Best Island to Visit in the World” by Condé Nast Travel Magazine 18 times since 1994.
The British heritage adds a colourful touch to your holiday; they drive on the left; serve tea promptly at 4:00; the policemen are known as bobbies; and cricket is the national sport. In the UNESCO World Heritage town of St. George the lanes are wide enough just for horses and carriages, and in the town you will also find superb museums and art galleries.
Our hotel in Bermuda is the First Class Grotto Bay Beach Hotel, located on a charming cove with 21 acres of naturally landscaped gardens with spectacular views of Bermuda's azure blue waters. The guestrooms are beautifully appointed with two double beds or a king-size, mini-fridge, coffee maker and an ocean view with private balcony or patio. Hotel facilities include a restaurant, bar, convenience shop, 3 private beaches, jacuzzi, tennis courts, exercise room, swimming pool, in-house movies, guest laundry and occasional evening entertainment. Tee-off times can be arranged at a nearby golf course.
The hotel is a 10-minute bus ride from historic St. George and 20 minutes from the capital, Hamilton (the bus stops at the resort entrance). There are many nearby attractions that you can visit by local transportation.
This relaxing holiday is best suited for those who enjoy exploring at their own pace and, the simple pleasures of the beach and tropical surroundings.
* Please note that Bermuda is quite hilly, so there are steps and stairs in and around the hotel.
