Spa Reflecting Pool
While we were quarantined for ten hours, we sat in our private cabana, ate delicious linguine ai frutti di mare, looked out at a gorgeous pool, and beyond, the sea. We lazed in a supersized bath, lounged on a California King, and in general did not feel as though we were being required to stay in one place – and that is because we decided to stay at the Rosewood Bermuda. In addition to enjoying the hotel’s recently renovated room for ten hours straight, the Rosewood also offered us a peace of mind that many travelers during this time crave. Once we emerged from our room, we were happy to discover a gorgeous resort, and dozens of hand sanitizer stations positioned anywhere one may touch something. Pushed a button in the elevator? Don’t worry, there’s hand sanitizer. Open up the door to the Island Brasserie for breakfast? Hand sanitizer. Off to the pool? Hand sanitizer, and a friendly employee to greet you and take your temperature.
While sitting by the Rosewood Bermuda’s two pools with a rosé in hand is highly recommended, it’s worth exploring what else the Tucker’s Point resort has to offer. The Beach Club is a private enclave featuring one of the largest private pink-sand beaches on the island, and is also home to the property’s best restaurant if you are in the mood for fresh seafood. The golf course is a welcome challenge for regular players, and the tennis courts offer a great way to work up a sweat.

While the quaint towns of St. George and Hamilton (Bermuda’s capital) are usually bustling, the streets of both were quiet. Bermuda first-timers should still take a taxi to St. George, and relish the opportunity of seeing colonial-era architecture sans the usual droves of cruise ship tourists (word has it that the ships will not return until 2021). For any American with a passport and a desire to get out of town – Bermuda should be high on your list.
