    Raj, Where is the Hamilton Princess beach located? 
     
    Raj (bermuda-attractions.com) August 2017 
    Pat, it's at Sinky Bay on south shore .... requires a boat ride to reach... hotel provides a boat shuttle for its guests. Other than a beach, there is a beach bar, restaurant and also hammocks, snorkeling etc. The hotel doesn't have any beach in Hamilton though.

    Hi Raj, What a great site you have created. Very informative, thank you! We are coming to Bermuda next week and we will be staying at Hamilton Princess. Is the ferry still running between that hotel and the Fairmont in the South? What would be the most convenient way to get to the snorkeling beaches on the south shore? thank you 
     
    Raj (bermuda-attractions.com) June 2015 
    Hi, yes the ferry between the two hotels still operates. For the south shore beaches, take the hotel ferry to Southampton dock and take bus #7 to Church bay or other beaches.

    Had a wonderful stay at the Hamilton Princess from Mar 10 to 15. Staff very friendly and helpful. Part of the hotel closed for renovation but did not create any noise or disturbance. Cuisine was great. Have to try their Grilled Chicken. 
    Meals were expensive but this is a "luxury hotel". Fabulous hot tub and heated pool as well as an unheated one. Grounds are awesome with beautiful gardens and flowered nooks and crannies popping up everywhere. I had beautiful view of the harbour full of yachts bobbing on the waves. Awesome new bar and grill on the water front called the 1609. A ferry leaves the waterfront, about a 10 minute walk from the hotel for tours to various parts of the island. I hit 5 beaches in one day. Visited their sister hotel the South Hampton Princess and had lunch at their seaside grill. Would make a return visit in a heartbeat.

    Went to check out tea at the Hamilton Princess. Was told they are in the midst of a big renovation and do not serve tea right now- they hope to resume in May.
