Great Honeymoon & Romantic Hotels in Bermuda
This section is for the hotels in Bermuda that have the most romantic settings and are ideal for honeymoon or romantic anniversary. I have listed them from higher to lower price categories.
The Cambridge Beaches ($$$$)
This is one of the finest resorts, located in Sandys parish and overlooking the western shoreline. This 5 star resort is spread across 30 acres of land. You have access to some of the most beautiful private beaches in the island. The rooms with their unique colors & furnishing have been designed for complete luxury. Many of them have spectacular view of the ocean along with adjoining terrace gardens.
You can indulge in indoor activities like the Ocean Spa, or take a boat to explore the water area & islands, take a horse ride along the shore or practice golf in their manicured greens. The restaurant Tamarisk with its indoor and terrace dining offers great French cuisine and views of Mangrove bay
For more casual dining, walk down to the on-beach Breezes and enjoy your cocktails served right on the private Long Bay beach.
The Reefs ($$$$)
Perched on a spectacular limestone cliff in Southampton, The Reefs is an award winning resort overlooking one of the most beautiful private beaches. The rooms are top notch, very well maintained and spacious. In most rooms there is a private patio and many have great views of the ocean.
La Serene spa is one of the finest in the island. Do some kayaking or rent a bicycle from the resort and explore the cycling trails, or play tennis. There is a nice infinity pool. The resort has several restaurants and bars serving gourmet dishes and great selections of wine (there is a separate wine room too).
Rosewood Tucker's Point ($$$$)
Located on a vast stretch of land in St. Georges (near the airport) and overlooking Castle Harbor and Harrington Sound water areas, this upscale hotel with a manor house and villas is meant for those looking for sheer elegance, and delicacy with sophistication. It has its own 18-hole golf course and also a partnership with Mid Ocean Golf Club to offer Tee time to its guests.
Other key facilities include private beach, several exquisite restaurants & bars, couple of swimming pools, great spa with 11 treatment rooms, watersports, tennis courts, a garden sanctuary for yoga etc.
Fairmont Southampton ($$$$)
This is a large luxury hotel located in Southampton on a hilltop overlooking the south shore and its own private beach. The hotel has its own 18-hole golf course and partnership with Riddell's bay golf course to offer prime tee time to its guests. The hotel provides its own shuttle to take guests down to its beach and the beach club (which is actually at a walking distance).
Try to stay at Fairmont's exclusive Gold Floor to enjoy the best privileges. However all rooms are excellent with marbled bathrooms, private balconies overlooking the ocean or the golf course.
Pompano Beach Club ($$$$)
This is an excellent family run and beachfront property located at Southampton in western Bermuda. The hillside and ocean front villas have private balconies or patios, and have amazing views of the water over the private beach.
The resort offers great amenities including in-house water sport center, shuttle to nearby ferry dock for quick transfer to Hamilton. Excellent spa, restaurant with wonderful ocean view, beach activities (they operate several watersports from their private beach) can make a perfect romantic stay.
Elbow Beach Hotel ($$$$)
One of the main reasons to choose this luxury hotel would be its lovely private beach which is a section of the famous Elbow beach in south shore, Paget. Second reason would be its Beach Bar which is one of the best in the island and where you can sip a cocktail as you dip your toes into the sand and see the waves crushing right in front of you. Hamilton city is only 10 minute drive and the hotel is considered one of the best in the island.
Pink Beach Club and Cottages ($$$$) X Closed
The property covers about 16 acres of landscaped gardens and two private pink sandy beaches. This is by far the largest cottage colony in Bermuda. Luxuriously built suites and villas of this resort offer spectacular ocean views.
Royal Palms ($$$)
Located only 5-minute walk from Hamilton, this exquisite boutique hotel has two manor houses in a lovely garden setting full of palms and flowering plants. There are different types of suites, some with kitchenettes, and all are individually decorated and have modern amenities. There is also a pool. The Ascots restaurant is one of the best in Hamilton for fine dining and specializes in seafood.

Mazarine by the Sea ($$)
It has a nice independent cottage and 7 apartments complete with small kitchenettes. It's located on the north shore close to Hamilton City and right on the oceanfront. Although there are no beaches close by, the quietness, serenity and the view create a great romantic ambience.
The cottage would be an ideal choice for couples. The pool overlooking the ocean, the view of the sunset are all ideal settings for a romantic stay. You can walk down to Hamilton city in 15 minutes.
This is an elegant manor house and opens out into the views of Great Sound and the sparsely populated islands around it. Granaway is located in Warwick parish. It's a budget accommodation with rooms nicely appointed, and has a pool and garden patio. The south shore beaches short drive away.
Sand Pebble Studio Apartment ($$)
Overlooking the private Marley Beach in Warwick, this exclusive studio for two provides a perfectly secluded and romantic setting. Every time we stayed here, it was just a pure bliss.
With an excellent view of the harbor and wonderful spacious rooms, this is a great place for a romantic vacation. Owned by an artist, the house with its guest rooms very delicately appointed, a pool with swaying palms around it, the views of the harbor and the boats, is an exquisite and romantic budget accommodation.

Great apartments with self contained units and located in Warwick close to some of the best pink south shore beaches of the island (Warwick Long Bay beach is only about 5 minutes walk). A golf course, horse riding center, and the famous railway trail for nature walk are all close by.

Visitors' Stories, Reviews & Comments
Bill Ferguson (January 2014)
Namaste Raj, I am an India-phile for religion, culture, and nature and finally visited India twice recently...it was great. Now my daughter and her son-to-be fiance have booked a flight for Apr. 27-May 3 to Bermuda from Seattle and are looking at Grotto Bay...but it's too costly for them and I think it's too big and detached from island life...Am I right?
I thought perhaps they could go there the first 2-3 nights and then be close in to Hamilton and the south end beaches, like at Granaway, for the remainder. However, they are just turning 30, so I know they want something 'romantico' and still fun.
I am helping them with the lodging costs for their birthday present...so it's more about having them have a nice true 'Bermudan' time, overall. PS Coming from Seattle, so sun and beach are high on the agenda.
Appreciate any quick reply as rooms are filling fast...only one left @ Granaway, for example. "Danya-wad" [thanks in advance], Hari OM! and great travel site!, Raj. All the best and if you need info to visit Santa Fe (New Mexico), please contact me. You are always welcome here.
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, January 2014)
Hi Bill, Namaste, Although Grotto Bay Resort has a beach of its own, it's actually not a beach front property. This is presently the only hotel in the island which offers all inclusive package. Many come here for that. So it becomes a sort of resort stay here.
It's located at the eastern part of the island ... while not isolated, the access to other parts of the island is not probably the best. If sun & beach are top priorities, then Pompano Beach Club (in the same price category) located at Southampton would be my choice.
While Granaway is good, in Warwick parish you can also consider Watercolours in same category (nice view of the harbor and easy access to Hamilton by ferry + romantic stay). Another good option is Mazarine by the Sea in Pembroke.
Seems you've picked up Hindi quite well :) Thank you for offering information on Santa Fe.
Lisa (January 2013)
Hi! Wow! Your website and Information are so helpful! This will be our first time coming to Bermuda, we are a newlywed couple. Can you recommend a place to stay that is affordable? I would live a kitchen so that we can cook and save some money. We really want to visit Bermuda as we have heard it is beautiful. We can visit in June or July.
I was looking at July 12-16 so 4 nights. Any recommendations you have would be really appreciated. But I am flexible. Must sees. We love learning about the culture. Please email me back at [email protected]
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, January 2013)
Hi, I have mentioned some nice budget hotels and apartments for couples in the above sections. For your requirements, take a look at Salt Kettle House, Mazarine by the Sea, Clairfont Apartments etc. While I have mentioned several ways to experience Bermuda under the menu option "Tours & Excursions", one which would best reveal the heritage, history & culture would be the Tour of St. George's Town
Christine sent this wonderful story about how skeptical she was while choosing an island destination for her honeymoon. In her profession she had traveled widely and seen it all. But her honeymoon experience in Bermuda changed her perspective as she finally found a piece of paradise. She says... "A 'jaded' airline employee finally finds paradise on Bermuda!". She keeps living with the fond & intimate memories of her honeymoon days in Bermuda, and plans to return even though her husband is no more.
We stayed at Harmony club in 1988 on our honeymoon. We loved the place & staff sooo much we went back for 12 more years. Balcony 66 was our favorite. We renewed our vows in 1998 in the gardens under the moongate - Bill & Carol
Dolores Peterson ( Oct 2012)
We honeymooned at the Reefs in March 1978. What a fabulous place. Spoiled us for anything else after that wonderful experience, nothing else comes close. My husband still longs for their chocolate mousse. Have always wanted to return, but never had the chance (or money). Perhaps someday soon will do so on a cruise as a retirement gift. Hope they still make that famous mousse!
Thomas Sanders (October 2010)
Hello, I'm getting married on June 25th 2011. I'm looking to do our Honeymoon in Bermuda. It seems you know almost all there is to know about the island. So after looking on internet for a while I found this website and thought I'd try to contact you directly.
I'm looking for a good hotel/resort to stay for about a week. I have found good deals on flights into Bermuda. If possible I'd like to keep accommodations around 4K or so including food and all. is that possible? what hotels would you recommend? thanks a lot.
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, October 2010)
Hi Thomas, June is a high season and the hotel rates in Bermuda are considerably higher than the off season. So if you are choosing a top luxury hotel ($$$$) like The Reefs
or The Cambridge Beaches
, $4K may not be enough for 7-days including food. You will probably need to budget some $5.5K. If you plan some outdoor activities, that will require additional budget. Once you decide on the hotel, give them a call and request if they can consider some discount for you for a 7-day package. Sometimes they do if they are not running full. Best wishes for a happy marriage and a great honeymoon.
Thomas Sanders (October 2010)
Thank you for getting back to me. I have looked a lot at your website and have found it very helpful. I have even contacted several of the resorts that you suggested. The one that seemed to be the best fit was Horizons Cottage. I contacted them, but the manager informed me that they now only work with an exclusive client, and don't rent to all customers.
It seemed a very nice place. I'm not only looking for a resort. be open to a nice B&B or a cottage with a water view, and preferably a beach. I think I could pay up to about $300 or so a night w/out any meals or anything. I saw your honeymoon recommendations, but I didn't see any options in the middle price range. Are there any?
We obviously would like as much privacy as possible being on honeymoon and all, but I'm really open to ideas on this. Also, you mentioned this is a busy time, and I saw its high season, if we were to come between late June-early July, is the island extremely crowded? Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it! Talk soon!
Raj (bermuda-attractions.com, October 2010)
Thomas, I agree that Horizons Cottages
could have been a nice choice. It has been going through some redevelopment and is operating mostly on a fractional ownership basis. Another option that you can explore is the Grotto Bay Beach Resort
($$$). There are excellent ocean view rooms in cottage type lodges. They also have private beaches. Summer time (high season) rates are around $350 + taxes. So it should fit into your original budget of $4K for a week including food. The rates for the same rooms come down below $200 during low season (Nov - Mar), except for the Christmas time.
I have not included any $$ mid range hotels in my honeymoon list so far as I have not seen one to my liking. Check out the B&B Mazarine by the Sea ($). Although it does not have a sea beach, it does have nice access to waters. They have a couple of cottages as well. Accommodation is limited. So in case you like it, you will need to book well in advance. On your last question, April - October is high season in Bermuda and May - August is probably the peak time. The island would be a little crowded in some places during this time. Don't go where everyone goes and you should be fine.
