The Royal Palms
Just a 10-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of downtown Hamilton, this boutique hotel consists of two 19th-century manor houses surrounded by tropical gardens and a secluded pool. The colonial-style main house has a pink exterior with white shutters and an airy wraparound porch, which provides views of a small orchard where you can pick guava, bananas, avocados, and oranges right from the trees. Although the 32 guest rooms are individually decorated, most include large windows, all-white linens, and kitchenettes with a microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, and wet bar. A complimentary breakfast buffet is available daily in the bright, glass-walled breakfast room, while the acclaimed Ascots Restaurant serves Mediterranean, Bermudian, and international cuisine in a dining room accented with colorful contemporary paintings.
