Hamilton Princess, Bermuda

hamiltonprincessbermuda

I recently had the good fortune to stay a few days at the newly renovated Hamilton Princess in Bermuda. Previously called the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, this luxury hotel was purchased a few years ago by the Green Family. Peter Green and his two sons, Andrew and Alexander, have the biggest private art collection in Bermuda, and as part of their spectacular renovation, they decided to grace the walls of the Hamilton Princess with examples from their collection. Whether one is sitting in the lobby, walking down the hall to the new boutiques or to the Exhale Spa, strolling to the destination Marcus Samuelson restaurant, or enjoying the outdoor spaces next to the new ultra-modern marina, a contemporary art lover is going be riveted by the eye-candy. Some serious art can be found in some of the most unlikely places. Here are just a few examples.

It’s worth a trip just for the art alone but when you are done looking at the art, go to Hamilton Princess’ beautiful beach club or stroll their marina to ogle the yachts and the view.
