BDOT hosts North American travel agents

The Bermuda Department of Tourism hosted North American travel agents for a familiarisation trip on-Island.

The travel agents visited local hotels classified as boutique properties during their visit last week.

Sites visited on the trip were Pink Beach Club and Cottage Colony, Clear View Suites and Villas, Cambridge Beaches, The Reefs, Pompano Beach Club, Royal Palms Hotel, Rosedon, Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort and Tucker’s Point Hotel.

Said BDOT director William Griffith: “By industry standards boutique hotels are smaller, intimate and luxury accommodations.

“They are becoming popular in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

“Our travel agents are seeing an increase in requests for this type of accommodation and we hosted the travel agents specifically to share properties in Bermuda that suit the boutique hotel traveller’s needs.”
