Photos & Video: Fairmont Hamilton Renovations

April 30, 2015

The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club is getting set to unveil a slew of renovations and new additions to its guests, with the opening of Marcus’, a new restaurant to be run by well-known celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, one of the crown jewels of the hotel’s efforts.

The renovations were announced in 2013 by the Green family – the Bermudian family that owns the hotel – with plans designed to enhance the property, and the project being conducted in phases to minimize disruption to hotel guests.

As a result of Bermuda being selected as the venue for the 2017 America’s Cup, the Green Family later announced its support for the event, along with an additional $1 million dollar investment to renovate the hotel’s two penthouse suites.


This first phase of the multi-phase development involved construction of the new state-of-the-art marina, with further upgrades included an infinity pool, private cabanas, new hot tub, the renovation of the 69 guestrooms/suites, new furniture, a new Gazebo-style bar and grill, and more.

Hamilton Princess director of marketing Scott Evans said, “We’re excited to show you phase two of the Fairmont Princess and Beach Club, a Fairmont-managed hotel.

“As we get ready to open the different parts of phase two, my colleagues are very excited and a lot of new colleagues are very excited – we have been on a hiring spree getting everybody ready to open two restaurants, a beach club, and some outdoor space, and just get ready for the summer season, which we anticipate to be a banner summer season here at the Princess.”

Hamilton Princess director of marketing Scott Evans highlights renovations:

Regarding the outdoor space available at the newly renovated Crown and Anchor restaurant, Mr. Evans said, “This amazing space for our guests and the public to walk around and enjoy – we have firepits, we also have some spectacular sculptures that will be placed. Of course we have a moongate where we anticipate we’ll continue to have many weddings for many generations.

“And we have our trellis walkway that not only serves as a walkway for the brides to get to the moongate, but also it’s the pathway to 1609 Restaurant.”

Upcoming milestones for the Fairmont Hamilton Princess include Marina Nights beginning on May 1, the launch of the Crown and Anchor [formerly Heritage Court] on May 15, and Marcus’ opens for dinner on May 27, then also for lunch on June 11.

    I hope that will not be the case but still that statement had me in stitches for a minute.

    I’m sorry but the beauty of Hamilton Princess to me was always in the fact that it was a cozy warm place to spend time. somewhere to sit in comfy wingback chairs and chat over cocktails or afternoon tea. Now a see a big, admittedly beautiful, but plastic, could be any hotel in the world,that I have no desire to go to at all. I’m glad there is huge investment and if it works then great but how sad that all places in Bermuda with real character are being replaced with these cookie cutter hotel designs.
