Hamilton Princess ranked fifth best resort in Atlantic islands
History, art and service helped a Bermuda hotel earn a Top Five spot in an international travel magazine’s list of best resorts.
The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club was recognised by readers of Condé Nast Traveler.
It was voted the fifth best resort in the Atlantic Islands and was the highest ranked of Bermuda hotels. Rosewood Bermuda took the 15th place.
A spokeswoman for the Hamilton Princess said that the resort scored 97.29 out of a possible 100.
She added: “The magazine’s review made note of the hotel’s history and impressive art collection as well as highlighted the hotel’s service, noting that while warm hospitality is to be expected in Bermuda, ‘here at the Princess, the service is next level’.
“This also marks the fifth year running that the hotel has been recognised by the publication.”
Tim Morrison, the hotel’s general manager, said: “This is a particular distinction given the wonderful quality of the hotels on the island.
“This is a wonderful achievement in any year but has particular significance in this one.
“It is a welcome recognition of the incredible hard work put in by all of our colleagues over the past year: delivering world-class service and experiences throughout a challenging time for Bermuda’s tourism.
“We want to say thank you to all of our guests who voted and to our incredibly hard-working and dedicated team members, without whom this would not have been possible.”
The Readers’ Choice Awards showed Bermuda in 13th place — with a score of 91.16 — on a list of Caribbean and Atlantic islands.
