Rosewood Bermuda, formerly known as Rosewood Tucker’s Point, has closed to undergo a comprehensive $25 million re-imagination that will elevate every aspect of the award-winning resort. The renovation will include the complete redesign of the resort’s guestrooms, Beach Club, Golf Clubhouse and Sense, A Rosewood Spa, as well as an enhanced meeting space and new food and beverage outlets and concepts.
The guiding philosophy of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, is A Sense of Place in which each property reflects its particular location’s history, culture and sensibilities. In keeping with this philosophy, the new hotel design will showcase furnishings and artwork from local Bermudian artists and artisans in a sophisticated blend of the past and present. The design of the guestrooms and suites, lobby and new Conservatory Bar and Lounge will be led by Dawson Design Associates. London-based designer Alexander Waterworth Interiors Ltd. has been selected to redesign The Point restaurant, Tucker’s Bar, Beach Club and Golf Clubhouse. Dawson Design Associates will seamlessly combine the elegance of Bermuda’s colonial English heritage with the vibrancy of its indigenous culture to create an authentic Bermudian experience.
Enhanced public spaces
Upon arrival, guests will be welcomed in an elegant lobby more akin to a private manor house than a resort. At the heart of the lobby, a new Conservatory Bar and Lounge and atrium courtyard will serve as the perfect retreat for guests to relax and enjoy coffee or craft cocktails. The lobby will also offer access to improved retail offerings. Additionally, enhanced and expanded meeting spaces will be available on the second floor.
Re-imagined rooms and suites
Rosewood Bermuda’s 92 guestrooms and suites will be transformed into intimate, residential-style retreats designed to capture Bermuda’s indigenous culture and natural surroundings. Featuring top-end furniture, contemporary local art and hand-selected fabrics that reflect the local fauna and beach, the rooms will speak to the island’s English colonial heritage in a contemporary way. The soft neutral palate will be complemented with azure blue accents and local, hand-crafted accessories that pay homage to the historical influences of the Bermudian culture and the natural beauty of the island.
New culinary concepts and cocktail destinations
Culinary venues will be re-conceptualised to provide modern and elevated dining experiences that celebrate locally-sourced ingredients and Bermudian-inspired cuisine:
- The resort’s signature restaurant will reopen as the Island Brasserie, which will introduce guests to local Bermudian cuisine through traditional dishes that combine the island’s rich culinary traditions with new-world flavours. Accented by the existing hand-painted murals, the restaurant will serve elevated island comfort food while Tucker’s Bar will become a rum bar dedicated to teaching guests about the history of the island’s signature spirit.
- Featuring breathtaking views of Castle Harbour, the new Conservatory Bar and Lounge will become the heart of the resort where guests and locals can enjoy hand-crafted British gin cocktails and spirits enhanced by fresh herbs, homemade infusions and the latest mixology techniques. With its twin fireplaces, black and white hand-painted tile floor and beamed ceilings, the new bar is a fusion of old and new. The bar will be complemented by the intimacy of the new courtyard, which will bring a rustic accent to the space. During the day, the space will become the ideal destination for morning coffee and afternoon tea.
- The re-imagined Beach Club restaurant will provide an immersive dining experience inspired by the buzzing fish markets of Bermuda. A neutral colour palate will complement the stunning pink sand beach for which Bermuda is renowned. With an updated bar serving imaginative, island-inspired cocktails and a menu of seasonal, locally-sourced seafood dishes, this oceanfront restaurant will be the ultimate destination for understated coastal dining.
- Sul Verde, the Golf Clubhouse restaurant, will be re-conceptualised to bring the rustic warmth and traditional spirit of the southern Italian region of Campania to the fairways. Boasting an authentic menu of the highest quality Italian ingredients and a warm, lively atmosphere, the Sul Verde experience will be reminiscent of an authentic family dinner in the heart of Italy. Situated next to Sul Verde, The Grille Room will also undergo a full refresh.
Elevated Beach Club
Located on Bermuda’s largest private, pink sand beach, the renowned Beach Club will also be redesigned and will reclaim its position as the ultimate destination for sun-soaked relaxation and casual seaside dining. In addition to the new restaurant and upgraded bar, enhancements will include chic cabanas, umbrellas, pool and beach furniture, and expanded luxury services and amenities.
Refined Golf Clubhouse and Golf Course
Guests will delight in the new Golf Clubhouse’s updated décor and redesigned Grille Room and Sul Verde restaurant. Additionally, guests will enjoy a world-class golf experience with the introduction of new, state-of-the-art amenities including golf carts and an upgraded golf course featuring enhanced course aesthetics.
Enriched heath and wellness experiences
To further enhance Rosewood Bermuda’s health and wellness offerings, the property will introduce a modernised Sense, A Rosewood Spa and a new fitness centre featuring top-end Technogym equipment. To complement the renovation, Rosewood Bermuda will unveil a variety of new fitness programs and spa treatments that integrate the essence of the island into the health and wellness experience.
New real estate offerings
As part of the renovation, Gencom, Rosewood Bermuda’s new owner, will unveil and sell fully renovated fractional ownership units branded as the Tucker’s Point Private Residence Club. Gencom is also currently selling ocean front lots and lots oriented towards the golf course for luxury home development.
