With its powdery pink sand beaches and crystal clear waters, its no wonder that there are more hotel rooms in Southampton than in any other parish in all of Bermuda- but the one that truly stands out in terms of luxury is the Fairmont Southampton.
Whether you’re a serious snorkeler or an expert sunbather, you’ll find the beaches of Southampton to be amongst the worlds finest. Tear through the waves on a jet ski, explore beautiful coral reefs, or just go for a dip in the sparkling Caribbean water. The conditions in Southampton parish are ideal for kayaking and yachting. This is the home of the fabled Bermuda Triangle, so there are literally hundreds of shipwrecks to explore. You can do this on one of the fantastic glass-bottom boat tours, or get an even closer look by scuba diving.
Southampton is indeed an aquatic paradise, but there’s still plenty to do on land. Rent a moped or a scooter and zip through Bermuda as the Caribbean breeze blows past you. Or take a trip to the top of the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, where you’ll have a stunning view of the entire island. Here, you can also partake in the celebrated British tradition of afternoon tea in the lighthouse tea room, or enjoy a meal outdoors as the Caribbean sun sets over this gorgeous island. Golfers will be thrilled by the absolute bounty of courses that sprawl out over Southampton. Golf in Bermuda is at its best at The Turtle Hill Golf Club at The Fairmont Southampton. Winner of Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play Golf”, this Bermuda golf resort’s course features 18 challenging par 3 holes, most with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. With its lush sub-tropical surroundings, dramatic elevation changes, and strong coastal winds, this challenging 2,684-yard golf course is designed to take your short game to new heights, requiring patience and prudent club selection.
Whether you head out to the Bermuda golf course for tournament play or a friendly game, you'll be delighted with the myriad of bunkers, two water hazards, and three tee offerings on all 18 holes. Ranked one of the top five par 3 courses in the world by Golf Magazine, Turtle Hill is the perfect course for golfers of all skill levels.
While not everybody is a golf enthusiast, everyone will enjoy the luxurious treatment they receive at the Fairmont Southampton’s Willow Stream Spa. The 31,000 square foot spa facility features fifteen treatment rooms, three lounges, an indoor heated pool complete with waterfalls and gardens, a hair and beauty salon, a state of the art fitness center, saunas and steam rooms, and, most fabulously, two Jacuzzis with sundecks that overlook the pristine south shore and the sparkling sea. Decadent treatments include the Bermuda Bliss, where the 144 rotating jets in the hydrotherapy tub give you an invigorating underwater massage, or the two-hour long Sea Splendor Body Oasis, which includes a eucalyptus foot soak, an invigorating exfoliation based on volcanic sand, a soothing aromatherapy bath, and a wrap of warm aloe mixed with island essences.
Equally lavish are the Fairmont Southampton’s accommodations, which exude the essence of Bermuda with their colorful pastels and flowing seas of turquoise. All guestrooms provide spectacular views of the ocean, the harbor, or the lush golf courses, and private balconies. The best view in the house is probably from the private L-shaped balcony of the Penthouse Suites, which are framed by two elegant limestone Moon gates. The room is luxuriously appointed with beautiful Bermuda cedar furniture and paneling, and features multiple wet bars, lush carpeting, a fully equipped entertainment room, and floor-to-ceiling French windows.
Enjoy all that this aquatic paradise has to offer by staying at the Fairmont Southampton, the premier luxury hotel in Bermuda.
