“Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama…” Do y’all love that song as much as me? Well, I can tell you that there is a reason why The Beach Boys included Bermuda. It is absolutely amazing!

Justin and I visited there last summer (did a whole blog post on it) for our Babymoon. We made a promise to each other on our last day there that we would bring Remy back after he was born, the following summer.
We changed things up a bit, and I’m so excited to share with you all of the details. This year we stayed at the Fairmont Southhampton. We chose this hotel because it is much closer to the beach club, and more central on the island to a lot of the things we wanted to do this trip. We figured with Remy, that would be easier. I will say, I actually liked the Fairmont Hamilton Princess more, even though we were farther away from the beach club. With the Southhampton location we were about a 5 minute shuttle ride down to the beach club, as opposed to the Hamilton Princess being about a 30 minute shuttle ride. That right there, was the biggest decision maker for us. We knew with a 9 month old, and all of his loot, that would not work.
Both hotels offer very different views and amenities. The Fairmont Southhampton overlooks the ocean and their golf course, which I’ve heard is amazing. Justin, unfortunately, didn’t get to try it out for himself this trip, where the Hamilton Princess overlooks the marina. The Hamilton Princess is near Downtown Hamilton, where all of the shops are, and some restaurants, etc. However, the Southhampton location is more central on the island, and near some staples such as the Swizzle Inn (fun pub & restaurant). It’s a must if you visit the island!
This year we dined at a new restaurant, very close to our hotel, called the Waterlot. It’s actually part of the Waterlot Inn, nestled on Jew’s Bay, and part of the Fairmont Southampton. It’s a steakhouse, with lots of history, and very good food. They were so wonderful with Remy there too!
On the second night we went back to a favorite from the year before, Ascots. This is by far the best (in my opinion) restaurant on the island. The food, service, and quaint little hotel that it’s in are all amazing. Add it to your list to visit. Last year I loved that they had non-alcoholic champagne for me. So, if Bermuda is your Babymoon destination, that’s another reason to visit them.
We spent our days enjoying the Southhampton beach club. Even went exploring and found some gorgeous coves like this one – Horeshoe Bay Cove, which was just about a 15-20 minute hike from the beach club.
Each resort has a private beach club with a restaurant, lounge chairs, umbrellas, etc. It’s pretty amazing and of course beautiful! The whole family stayed protected in our Cabana Life swimsuits and cover ups. They were so sweet to send us all such adorable swimwear – even with a Gator print (picture above of the whole family), which y’all know we love!
Remy approves too! If you aren’t familiar with them, all of their products are made with the highest level UPF, and so everything is 50+ UV protection. AMAZING! They make anything from swimsuits, to cover ups, tunics (above) and fun dresses to wear during the day or out to dinner at night. We LOVE them! They are offering my followers 20% off with the code LAURENKWILSON20.
Thank you to Cabana Life for partnering with me on this trip!
