October 5, 2015

Fairmont Southampton reports that it is working to restore all services following Hurricane Joaquin, reporting that their clean up is “well underway” and that the hotel suffered no significant damage, with reduced rates being offered to locals starting tomorrow [Oct 6].

A spokesperson said, “While there are some non structural issues to address, clean up is well underway, and Fairmont Southampton did not sustain significant damage as a result of Hurricane Joaquin.

“To ensure the safety and security of its guests and colleagues, the hotel team followed a comprehensive hurricane preparedness plan, and the property was well equipped to handle the storm.

“Many homes on the island of Bermuda have lost power and island officials are currently assessing any other damage. Fairmont Southampton is not accepting any new reservations for today, Monday, October 5, but will be accepting new guests from Tuesday onwards.

“To assist residents from Tuesday onwards, The Fairmont Southampton is offering reduced locals rates of $179 per night including continental breakfast plus taxes, gratuities, and resort levy for those who wish to move into the hotel, until power is restored.”

“With Hurricane Joaquin behind us, the fall continues to be a wonderful time to visit Bermuda,” said Shelley Meszoly, regional director of sales and marketing. “It is business as usual at Fairmont Southampton and there are still a few days left of our fantastic Fall for Bermuda 50% off sale to book travel until April 2016.

“We encourage anyone considering a visit to Bermuda to move forward with their travel plans and hope to see the guests whose trips may have been cut short or postponed back on the island very soon.”
