Award Of Excellence (Best Hotel): Hamilton Princess
As much a cultural staple as an award-winning world class hotel, the Fairmont Hamilton Princess & Beach Club remains one of Bermuda’s most cherished establishments at nearly one hundred and fifty years in operation. Famously a favourite stomping ground of iconic author and humorist Mark Twain, its historic legacy is rife with fascinating tales: it is an alleged inspiration for Ian Fleming’s James Bond stories and acted as a key strategic site during Bermuda’s involvement in the Second World War.



The year 2016 saw the completion of a major three-year renovation that has catapulted the Princess back into the global spotlight. After being purchased by the Green family in 2012, plans were announced to modernise the hotel without taking away from its historic charm, and by all accounts it has been a resounding success.
