Built in 1908, the 98 room Elbow Beach hotel is Bermuda's first world-class property to be built on Bermuda's South Shore. The 50-acre landscaped grounds gently slope down to a 1/2 mile-long private beach and nearby reef with shipwreck. Bermuda's traditional architecture of pastel painted limestone exteriors with white-tiered 'cake-icing' roofs is reflected throughout the property.

Elbow Beach, Bermuda is now an intimate luxury resort featuring 98 guestrooms and suites spread amongst 50 acres of tropical gardens that gently slope down to a private 1/2 mile stretch of pink sand beach. Find out all about the incredible array of activities and amenities we have for you to enjoy at our resort.


Elbow Beach, Bermuda offers both quiet seclusion and the exclusive pleasures of a tropical resort.

At Elbow Beach, the cuisine comes with a real sense of heritage. As befits the first hotel to open on the island's South Shore almost a century ago, we have been leading the way in fine dining ever since. Our restaurants, such as Lido are award winners many times over. And our bars attract the most stylish crowd in Bermuda.

Within our gardens we have a pool and tennis courts; from our private beach we arrange diving and watersports. Our concierge will also be pleased to book your preferred diversion, from tours of the colonial past to horseback riding on the beach.

Elbow Beach is the ultimate retreat with a wealth of facilities created for luxurious leisure. We offer the holistic pleasures of our spa, a fitness room, five tennis courts, a putting green and free form swimming pool. By the beach we have a comprehensive water sports service, from where we can organize any deep sea or shallow water entertainment, from wreck dives to kayaking.

The ocean is a constant feature of each day's activity, even if you are simply gazing over the Atlantic azure or dining on that morning's fresh catch. On the reefs around Bermuda's 62 mile (100 kilometer) coastline lie over 400 shipwrecks, creating a fascinating underwater history of the island. The snorkelling and scuba diving are world class.

The 1609 wreck of the Sea Venture was of particular significance, reputedly the inspiration for Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' but certainly the establishment of Bermuda as a British colony.

The colonial history is evident in sharp Bermuda shorts and impressive naval forts but for most visitors the British influence is probably best enjoyed on the superb golf greens with blue views.

Being a duty free port, shopping is hard to resist; although the delight is not so much the price but the pleasant experience. During the day swan through the Louis Vuitton boutique in Hamilton and in the evening enjoy a mini carnival with local artists exhibiting their work. And when you have bought your elegant attire there is nowhere more appreciative of your efforts than the fine restaurants in Bermuda, where everyone still likes to dress in style.

There are museums, aquatic parks and many ways of enjoying the pretty sights of the island; from cycling to high speed boat trips.

For consummate elegance and the finest aspects of Bermuda from Atlantic shores to pink sands, we welcome you to our luxurious retreat, Elbow Beach.

Review:   Beautiful beach-side resort in one of the best parts of Bermuda. Suites have modern finishes and are extremely comfortable and romantic. The beach front is very clean and gets great weather. The bar is home to one of Bermuda's only live music nights - pop/rock covers and the atmosphere and friendly and fun. Service is great on every level. It's not cheap but nowhere is in Bermuda

Review:   Easily one of the most beautiful hotels, and resorts, I have ever seen. I need to add something to this review, though. The people at this hotel are some of the most friendly, Incredibly generous staff I have ever encountered. While I have stayed here in the past, I am submitting a review because of what happened just recently at the hotel. My girlfriend was a bit woozy and was close to faint due to the heat; us being from NYC, she wasn't fully ready for it. We had planned to come to the hotel because of my memories and love for the spot (we were on a cruise at the time), and had to walk along the public beach to reach it. But when we got here I did not realize to get an umbrella and chairs was a cash only affair ($100) for non-hotel guests (be advised). The staff, recognizing my girlfriend's condition, not only helped us to a spot on the beach so she could rest, but provided us the spot COMPLIMENTARY as we didn't have the cash to fully pay for the spot (not naming names because don't want to get anyone in trouble haha). It was, without a doubt, one of the kindest things complete strangers have ever done for either of us, and we are so incredibly grateful for it. (Don't worry we tipped at the end

Review:   The most lovely people in the warmest and friendliest island I've ever visited. The resort could not do enough to ensure everything we needed was at our disposal. Before we even arrived when Kyle was helping us navigate our activities, to the moment we arrived and Danny met us with his famed rum swizzle (just ask him how long he's been at the resort!) and Nicholas who was immediately available to help with any needs - to the lovely owner of the scooter shop and her fur-friend, Millie (just ask her how long she's been at the resort!), to the phenomenal tennis pro (David - who made every morning fun and engaging and always left us wanting more!), to the phenomenal staff at all the outlets, room service, and to the incredible team that manages the beach --- and how could we forget Bame, who provides exceptional service with the biggest smile EVER - at every turn... Elbow Beach knows EXACTLY how to treat their guests and is an example of the gold standard in the hospitality industry... And, as a 20 year veteran in the event planning industry, I know from what I speak!!!! I missed this lovely treasure before I even left and I absolutely plan on an annual visit. Thank you for making our stay so special and so wonderful..... We couldn't have asked for a better vacation!

Review:   Fantastic beach. Clean and private. A little on the pricey side for drinks, you can get a pitcher of Swizzle from the Swizzle Inn for half of the price that you'll pay here, and it'll be better, but still a great atmosphere.
