A spokesperson said “Housed in a building that dates back to 1670, the destination restaurant has always been an island favourite and we are eager to welcome patrons back in a few short months. The hiring process for the reopening is beginning this week.”

“Works at the Waterlot are ongoing,” said Kiaran MacDonald, Reginal Vice President, Caribbean and General Manager of the Fairmont Southampton. “We are very happy with the progress being made and are looking forward to hosting everyone back at the iconic restaurant that’s been an institution in Bermuda for decades.”

The spokesperson said, “Local companies are leading the efforts on the overhaul of the Waterlot. For instance, Bermuda-based Atlantic Mooring Maintenance Ltd. has been responsible for the replacement of the dock; that part of the renovation is almost complete and The Dock establishment is on course to reopen early in 2025.

“Local contractor BCM Construction is taking on the interior renovations. The new furniture, fixtures and equipment [FF&E] have already been ordered. The bathrooms are being completely redone and all of the rooms will benefit from a fresh coat of paint, updated lighting and brand-new carpeting and window treatments.

“It will be wonderful to have people back at the Waterlot Inn, meeting for delicious food and drink, and taking in the spectacular views of the bay,” MacDonald continued.

    Just in time for Christmas. It is a fair hike for me to Southampton, but I have always enjoyed Waterlot Inn. I look forward to December and dining at Waterlot Inn again.

    Progress, although slow, is still progress. Having Boundary remain open, and now the reopening of Waterlot shows progress. Hopefully we can have tangible, visible progress on the main hotel and things can continue to rebound.

      What is rebounding, you said continue to rebound? it is over half way through the year of 2024, this restaurant will open at the end of the year. 2020 was the year of COVID, so 4 years to open a restaurant!

      Yes it will be great to have a foreign owned restaurant for Bermudians to spend their money in and the profits to go overseas. It must be staffed by Bermudians. That was the sell for this. I saw no mention on staffing.

        the flights are rebounding
        tourism arrivals and spending are rebounding
        the economy overall is rebounding

        i know that may not fit the “narrative” but it is true.
