Rosewood Tucker's Point Bermuda 2107

A good friend suggested that I visit ROSEWOOD TUCKER'S POINT while on vacation in Bermuda. She told me that it's, "The only place she stays." I could see why. It's a beautiful place to relax away from the city center. The beach is beautiful with an infinity pool at oceanside. Let's take a look.

60 Tucker's Point Dr., Hamilton Parish, HS 02 Bermuda.

Website description:
Rosewood Tucker's Point® offers serene sophistication that eludes formality. A mere 90 minutes from most major U.S. East Coast cities, this Bermuda luxury resort is a tranquil island escape and a world apart.

I looked at a map to see if I could take a bus to the resort. The website says it's possible, but in the end I decided to take a cab from Hamilton town, which ended up costing just under $40.

Prior to visiting I contacted the resort to see if it was possible to visit, they said:
We are so excited for you to come to Bermuda! We love visitors, please feel free to visit our property. We may or may not have a surprise waiting for you when you arrive! Enjoy and see you soon!
Wow. That was nice.

When my wife and I arrived, we saw this view from the lobby:

Then we were directed to the second pool and garden.

Website description:
An all-in-one facility dedicated to pleasure and leisure, the Beach Club not only includes Bermuda’s largest private beach, but also two freshwater swimming pools. The Horizon Pool is reserved for guests aged 13 and older, while the Fountain Pool is perfect for families with young children.

Diners will delight at the seasonal open-air restaurant Sur Mer, dining terrace and bar pavilion, which overlooks the picturesque South Shore and the Atlantic Ocean. With the shaded pergola perched above a pink sand beach, this offers a dramatic setting for lunch and dinner, offset by the casually elegant atmosphere and simple, sophisticated menus.

With Beach Club amenities available April through October, guests need not worry about the details. For guests’ comfort and convenience, beach attendants will be on hand to assist with towel service and chair set-up, along with food and beverages. In the fall and winter months, the beach remains open from sunrise to sunset, but only limited service is available. Special events can be arranged.

For fans of snorkeling, everything a guest might need is available for rental from Rosewood’s Watersports Hut, located at the entrance of the Beach Club. Visitors can rent a mask, a snorkel and fins, and explore the reefs just off the shores of the private beach. The Dive and Watersports Center, meanwhile, is located on the shores of Castle Harbour, just a short tram ride away.

One the best beach/pool experiences ever. Tucker's Point Beach Club infinity pool by the ocean.

Amazing beach. Our cab driver told us that this was one of the most beautiful beaches on Bermuda.

We had quite the visit.

One our way to the airport, we told our cab driver about the experience. He said that Tucker's Point Beach Club did indeed have one of the most beautiful beaches on Bermuda. All beaches on Bermuda are public, up to the water line. In order for you to see this beach, you'd have to be a guest of the hotel, a member of the beach club, or have a boat to get you there. ;-)

He also told us that there were also two other beaches that you could get to by cab, beaches that are accessible by moped, cab or boat. They are by the airport and called Clearwater Beach & Turtle Bay. Read the reviews on TripAdvisor to get a feel for the area.

Looking at the map, also there is Cooper's Island Nature Reserve.
Explore 12 acres of pristine nature reserve to spot seabirds, giant land crabs and ancient Bermuda cedar trees on Cooper’s Island, at the southeastern tip of Bermuda. This secluded area was off-limits for decades: The U.S. military occupied the area and built a battery during WWII, and in the 1960s NASA operated a space tracking station here. It was reopened to the public in 2011, and now it has nature trails and shallow-water beaches perfect for a day trip or picnic. Climb the wildlife observation tower to see a sweeping panorama of the island.
Something we might check out on our next trip to Bermuda.
