“On behalf of the Government of Bermuda, I would like to congratulate the family, hotel management and staff for transforming this historic gem into one of the most exciting hotel destinations on the island,” continued Minister Fahy.

“Tourism is an important part of Bermuda’s economy and it’s hard to think about tourism without mentioning Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, the Official Hotel Sponsor of America’s Cup and home to the first celebrity chef restaurant in Bermuda.”

    The painting of the girl with the suitcases, with a blue background, in photos 5 and 6 above….does anyone know who this is by and what it is called?

  2. Thinker says:

    Stunning!!!! Wishing you much success

  3. off roading says:

    Looks great and thanks green family for investing in our country:)
    BUT its a shame that you have invested millions of dollars in your hotel, that we need an all terrain vehicle to get to. The company that trenched the road outside your hotel should be made to come back and make repave it. Its horrible to drive along that road..

    • Lead By Example says:

      I love the new layout of the hotel. I was sad to see the koi pond gone, only because I have pictures of three generations of my family over the years taken there.

      I love 1609 this time of year! Its a great bar / restaurant. Not a large menu but I can always find something on it. I havent tried the Marcus restaurant but I will in 2 weeks time.

  4. Ty says:

    These are some beautiful shots… Well done to the Green Family and Thank You. :) Much success to you guys.

  5. Maddog says:

    Thanks for investing in Bermuda! Love the property, love the restaurants and the bars, a great product! Thank you to the Greens…they could have put their money eleswhere, and chose us…awesome

  6. Music says:

    So great to see this!! The hotel is beautiful, especially all of the artwork, I’ve seen so many guests stop and admire it.

    But please can you tell your restaurants to turn their live music down? I’d say 90% of the people that I know that have visited (Marcus’ in particular) have complained that they can’t even hear their neighbor talking to them! I had the same experience when visiting for Sunday brunch. The band themselves though are great.

  7. Don't be fooled says:

    Believe less of what you hear and even less of what you see. They investing in themselves not Bermuda or its people. A great percentage of there staff in managerial post are foreigners. The only jobs good enough for Bermudians there is turning beds. No faith in our own to promote and sell our country and be paid fear enough to do so. Stay woke!

  8. Susie (Graham) Wild says:

    Do have a most wonderful opening and the very best wishes to all of you..Congratulations.was great to see you both in Toronto last month..Take care

  9. Let's Go Bermuda says:

    Wow, thank you Green Family. What an awesome transformation!
