Situated on 200 lush acres, this newly revamped 92-room hotel offers a children’s program, a secluded beach, four swimming pools as well as a kiddie pool, a beach club, water sports, dive center, fitness center and four onsite restaurants. The former library is now a casual bar. Superior guestrooms are 500 square feet with king beds and balcony views of Castle Harbour or Harrington Sound, but the deluxe rooms, at 600 square feet, may be a better bet with kids with an extra sitting area.
Rosewood Explorers, offered July through August, provides kids 4 to 12 a day camp-like club with tennis, golf, swims at the Beach Club Fountain Pool and cooking lessons.

I recently threw a big birthday party at Rosewood Bermuda with 20 people and it was absolutely perfect. With so many people traveling in from NYC and SF I knew everything would have to be 5 star and the resort didn't disappoint. The staff did everything under the sun to help all of my guests, and to ensure the birthday dinner hosted at the hotel was over the top spectacular. They offered special ideas like a dinner on the pink sand beach followed by a bonfire with s'mores. It was unique, memorable, and incredibly beautiful. Katie Barr was the perfect point of contact to organize everything top to bottom (she was available nights and weekends to sort anything that came up) and Director of Food and Bev Serge and his colleague Dan truly made me feel like a princess. They took care of everything, including special touches like sending specially created pink cupcakes (my favorite) to my room. The resort itself is magically gorgeous with its recent room renovations as good as everyone says. The food, especially buffet brunch, is amazing and don't miss outdoor dining at Sul Verde. I'm so grateful to everyone for such an incredible stay, and to the GM who personally met me at the airport to help me ease into the trip. For anyone in NYC, Bermuda is less than a 2 hour flight and you clear customs before you land, so it's an incredibly easy flight. Mid-October weather had phenomenal beach days. I will certainly be back soon and know that most of my guests plan to return as well.
We arrived at rosewood bermuda right after a category 3 hurricane and during a tropical storm, many things on island and on property were closed including the beach. Magnolia went above and beyond to make up for it in every sense of the word. The spa treatments were some of the best our group has ever had, private cocktail hours at both bars was perfect, the rooms were stunning, the service and attention to detail was stellar.
