Rosewood Tucker’s Point – Bermuda
The British colonial-style manor house has become a go-to for those looking to relax in luxurious accommodations. Rosewood Tucker’s Point combines the amenities and perks of a big resort with the charms and intimacy of a boutique hotel.
The center of the hotel is the manor house, which feels more like a beautifully decorated home than a hotel. A grand staircase and elegant library round out the classic but preppy vibe that reminds me of my childhood in suburban Connecticut: blue and white ginger jars, porcelain foo dogs, and antique horse lithographs. I was especially taken with the lobby’s grey and white tiles and the interesting art, including a large-scale model ship and three-dimensional birdcages with mercury glass and painted birds.
Hidden away from the island’s main port and other hotels, Rosewood Tucker’s Point overlooks Castle Harbour on one side and Harrington Sound on the other. Guests are greeted by a cheerful duo wearing a get-up best described as preppy-meets-safari-meets-tropics: traditional Bermuda shorts, knee-high socks, and salmon pink pith helmet. It’s a lovely first impression.
With its sweeping views of jewel-green hills and cerulean blue Atlantic waters, Rosewood Tucker’s Point offers an iconic tropical getaway with unexpected British charm. From the fine marble stonework in each private bath to the bone china at the Point, every element of the Bermuda hotel’s decor and service projects an effortless elegance and luxury designed to ensure guests feel like royalty. Open since 2009, this Bermuda beach resort has quickly gathered accolades and praise from travel and consumer organizations as a romantic dream getaway.
Fresh from the seas, global in vision and warm with Caribbean spirit, Bermudian cuisine is a highlight of any visit to Tucker’s Point. From chowder to lobsters, visitors will have the world on a platter.
The hotel’s fine dining restaurant, The Point, houses a museum-worthy travel artifact: an 80-foot-long mural from the exclusive Sky Club of New York’s Pan Am Building (now the MetLife Building). In 1966, artist Gerard D’Alton Henderson was commissioned by Pan Am founder Juan Trippe to paint the world’s major ports of the 1880s. After the Sky Club closed in 2005, the mural was relocated to the hotel, and Bermuda’s Hamilton Harbour was added — presumably out of respect for its new home.
Wellness & Spa
Rosewood Tucker’s Point is more than a Bermuda getaway. This relaxing sanctuary for mind, body and soul offers four swimming pools, and a fully equipped fitness center, in addition to the world-class Sense®, A Rosewood Spa, offering an array of traditional and exotic therapies from around the world.

Bathed in the balmy turquoise waters of the Sargasso Sea, the string of islands that is Bermuda is ringed by treacherous reefs that make it one of the world’s top diving destinations. With its pastel-colored houses and stately mansions drowning in lush greenery and fragrant frangipani and bougainvillea, their step-like white roofs poised to catch rainwater, Bermuda feels like a genteel chunk of rural England lifted into warmer climes. But it’s much more diverse than that, with British, North American, African, Portuguese and West Indian influences adding to the unique cultural melange. In spite of its tiny size – just 20 miles by 2 miles – Bermuda’s museums and art galleries add touches of urban sophistication and its many forts attract history buffs, while its varied topography makes it ideal for all manner of water sports, hiking, golfing, or just lazing on a picture-perfect pink-sand beach.
