Who says summer is over? Bermuda’s Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, the host hotel for the 2017 America’s Cup, is offering the new “Endless Summer” package, saving guests 33 percent on a three-night stay. Travelers will receive every third night complimentary when a vacation coincides with a Friday or Saturday night. The package is available year-round with rates starting at $239 per night in a Deluxe Garden View room, excluding tax and service.
Less than a two-hour flight from New York, Bermuda’s winter temperature hovers around a cool 65 degrees. This season, go beyond the pink-sand beaches and explore the island’s diverse cultural and outdoor offerings. Added bonus? Thanks to Bermuda’s North Atlantic location, the destination remains Zika-free.
Where to Relax…Enjoy spa therapies and boutique fitness classes at the leading lifestyle and wellbeing brand exhale, a new addition to Hamilton Princess as part of their recent $100 million renovation.
Where to Eat…Experience the Sunday Brunch with live music at Marcus’, the island’s first and only celebrity-helmed restaurant, led by Marcus Samuelsson. Don’t miss Art Mels, known for their traditional Bermudian fish sandwiches and The Meltdown, where Black Rum & Ginger and Rum Swizzle ice cream flavors (inspired by Bermuda) are served.
Where to Shop… Stroll through the neighboring boutiques of Hamilton including the TABS shop, offering authentic Bermuda shorts designed by a local Bermudian; and visit Isolated Surfboards, one of the few institutions that carves surfboards by hand.
What to See… Join the hotel’s art tour, which will bring guests up-close with more than 60 museum-quality pieces of art including works by Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, and Nelson Mandela. Visit St. Georges, a charming UNESCO World Heritage site dotted with colorful houses and early colonial architecture.
Looking for more… There’s golf, more than 22 miles of biking trails, kite-surfing and tennis.
