Lush Beachfront Resort with Dramatic Subterranean Caves
Grotto Bay Beach Resort takes its name from the subterranean caves nestled along the Bermuda shoreline, which the resort's visitors are invited to tour and even swim in. The natural wonders of the resort extend to woodland preserves that hug the water's edge and turquoise surf that rolls up to its beaches. Eleven cottages slope down toward the coastline, where the natural caves and secluded coves invite exploration with dramatic, crystal-like formations. Guests can enjoy custom-tailored spa treatments at the on-site Natura Spa, located in a grotto surrounded by 500,000 year-old stalactites and stalagmites and overlooking an underground ocean fed by a crystal-clear lake.
Ocean-view superior rooms have custom-designed tables, dressers, and ottomans for distinctive character; private patios look out onto the water. Kids can run amok on the playground while adults take a dip in the freshwater pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Grownups can also enjoy massages at the full-service onsite spa or discover the three pink-sand beaches.
At the Great House, antiques and fireplaces create an inviting atmosphere for mingling at the Rum House Bar or enjoying continental cuisine in one of the two dining rooms. Come evening, the terrace lights come up and live performers entertain at the lounge.
Guests who opt for the all-inclusive package will receive three meals a day, all alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, watersport rentals, unlimited bus and ferry passes, and more. Click here for details on the all-inclusive package.
Bailey's Bay, Bermuda: Peaceful Parish Close to Historic Towns and Capital City
Removed from the frenetic pace of central Bermuda, Bailey's Bay possesses a secluded feel and celebrates the area's spectacular natural attractions. The resort flirts with the Bermuda coast, where guests can kayak above coral reefs and wrecked ships. A dive shop located at the resort equips certified and noncertified explorers for tank dives and arranges snorkeling trips to observe Bermuda's exotic marine life at shallower depths.
A short bus ride north, the 400-year-old town of St. George showcases Bermuda's history in well-kept buildings, monuments, and forts dating back to 1612. Shoppers can stroll along colonial streets to browse the wares of craft vendors and watch costumed reenactments of historical incidents around the square's replica stocks and pillory. About a block away, Saint Peter's Church—one of the oldest Anglican churches in the Western Hemisphere—touts tombstones and ancient architecture.
