The Rosewood Bermuda has announced that it will be closing its doors on January 2, 2018, to embark on a $25 million renovation. The hotel, formerly known as Rosewood Tucker’s Point, will reopen on April 18.
The renovation will include the complete redesign of the resort’s guest rooms, Beach Club, Golf Clubhouse and Sense, A Rosewood Spa, as well as enhanced meeting space and new food and beverage outlets and concepts.
Rosewood Bermuda’s 92 guest rooms and suites will be turned into an intimate, residential-style retreat. The new rooms will have bespoke furniture, contemporary local art and hand-selected fabrics. The new hotel design will showcase furnishings and artwork from local Bermudian artists and artisans in a blend of the past and present.
At the heart of the new lobby, a new Conservatory Bar and Lounge and atrium courtyard will serve as a spot for guests to relax and enjoy coffee, afternoon tea or craft cocktails. With its twin fireplaces, black and white hand-painted tile floor and elegant beamed ceilings, the new bar will be a fusion of both old and new, showcasing local art. The bar will be complemented by a new courtyard, which will bring a rustic accent to the space.
The lobby will also offer access to improved retail offerings. Additionally, enhanced and expanded meeting space will be available on the second floor.
The resort’s signature restaurant will reopen as the Island Brasserie, which will be a vibrant and informal space that will introduce guests to local Bermudian cuisine through traditional dishes that combine the island’s rich culinary traditions with new-world flavors.
Accented by the existing, iconic 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.
The redesigned Beach Club restaurant will provide a dining experience inspired by the vibrant fish markets of Bermuda. With an updated bar serving island-inspired cocktails and a menu of seasonal, locally-sourced seafood dishes, this oceanfront restaurant is said to be a great spot for understated coastal dining.
Sul Verde, the Golf Clubhouse restaurant, will be re-conceptualized to bring the spirit of the southern Italian region of Campania to the fairways. Offering an authentic menu of Italian ingredients and a warm, convivial atmosphere, Sul Verde aims to 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.
To further enhance Rosewood Bermuda’s health and wellness offerings, the property will introduce a modernized Sense, A Rosewood Spa and a new fitness center featuring 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.
