Client Spotlight: Bermuda
With its balmy weather, pink sand beaches and scenic coastline, it is little wonder
Bermuda is called the jewel of the Atlantic. A rich fusion of colonial history and island
heritage offers an escape like no other!
It seems Bermuda is an often forgotten island getaway, which is surprising, since it is so
easy to get to from the eastern seaboard. It is less than a 3 hour flight from Atlanta, and
with an island only 20 miles long, it’s a quick drive from the airport to your hotel.
Bermuda has similar weather to North Carolina, so it is best visited between April-
Bermuda is Britain’s oldest colony and the influence can still be seen. It is not
uncommon to see a Bermudian judge walking through the capital of Hamilton in a
powdered wig, see a bobby directing traffic, or overhear a passionate conversation
about a cricket match.
The town of St. George is deemed a Unesco World Heritage, and definitely worth
seeing. The town was founded in 1612 and is a remarkable example of an early
English urban settlement in the New World.
Harvey and Elise Crouch, of Princeton Hills, chose Bermuda for their family vacation
this summer and they were extremely pleased with their choice. While they were
looking forward to visiting the island, they felt this destination over delivered and
exceeded their expectations. Elise said,“The whole island was absolutely beautiful, and
the kindness we experienced from all of the locals was really amazing.”
Harvey and Elise took their children, William, Ellen, Jennifer, and their son-in-law, John.
The Crouch children range in age from 20-28, and they agree it is a fun destination for
parents and young adults.
The Crouch family decided on calling the Rosewood their home for their stay in
Bermuda. It is boasted that the Rosewood is a destination in itself, sitting on 240 acres
of manicured grounds, neighboring the estates of Tucker’s Town and its championship
golf course. While the resort is expansive, it is still intimate, as there are only 92 rooms
and suites in the resort.
You can explore by golf cart, scooter or take a short trolley ride to the hotel’s private
pink sand beach. Jennifer said, “I loved having access to the beach club. Having the
pink sand right on property with food, drinks and such a small crowd was amazing.”
The Rosewood has the largest private pink sand beach in Bermuda.
