Bermuda, that rum-and-rugby-loving overseas territory of the United Kingdom, is beautiful to behold and pricey, to boot. If you can find an inclusive eats package, it’s worth investigating, as it can save you a ton of cash in the long haul. Only one hotel we found claims the “all-in” inclusive approach, with drinks tacked on along with everything else, but a few other solid options boast package deals, too. Here are some of the best.
Grotto Bay Beach Resort
From the swim-up bar to “Prospero’s Cave,” where a spa is set inside a natural cave, Grotto’s Bay boasts the let-it-go-and-forget-about-the-cost ethos that makes for the best all-inclusive experiences. The only one of its kind on the island, the package, which requires a three-night stay or longer, costs $114 per person per day on top of your room rental. Kids between 3 and 16 cost an extra $84.
That includes three meals, non-motorized water sports such as paddleboats and snorkeling equipment, ferries and bus passes, tennis courts, and weekly rum parties. Oh, and all the booze your heart desires, if you’re the hard-partying sort—with the exception of a few rare top-shelf items. The only hidden fee here is an extra $12 daily per person per room. Suites are fairly streamlined and simply designed, and if you like a lot of privacy, you should request an extra-quiet room; walls here can be thin.

Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa
Thanks to its coral, white, and baby blue color scheme, this hotel has almost a Miami Art Deco feel. Guests rave about its cuisine, particularly that at Tamarisk, an open-air restaurant with stunning views where the menu might include grilled wahoo with mango salsa, garlic-and-coconut baked lobster, or roasted rack of kurobuta pork.
Though there’s no technical all-inclusive package here, a dinner meal plan can be added to your booking for $68 per person per night, including tax and gratuity. (Note: This is an adults-only hotel, which makes it that much more romantic and peaceful.)

Rosewood Tucker's Point
Posh, luxe, grand—all those words apply to this hotel, where grand four-poster beds, deep bathtubs, killer views, and gorgeous restaurants are the order of the day. At The Point, take in the knockout murals by Gerard Henderson, and tuck into one of a thousand bottles of wine the restaurant keeps in its cellar.
Packages available here include one that covers breakfast and dinner in the restaurants or in your room—which is extra-romantic, especially on a terrace, if you have one—and cost $150 daily for adults and $75 per day for kids. Drinks are extra. Pricey? Yes. But for food and wine snobs who love to chitchat with the sommelier about the terroir they love, it’s a find.
The Reefs Resort & Club
Honeymooners tend to rave about the romance package at this boutique resort featuring limestone cliffs, a sleek pink sand beach, and knockout views. Although not specifically an all-inclusive, the five-night deal includes daily breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner, a sultry meal for two on the beach, welcoming champagne and rum drinks, chocolate-covered strawberries, round-trip airport transfers, and an ocean view room in addition to taxes and gratuities.
So if you’re in the mood to just kick back, celebrate being in love, soak in your private hot tub (inquire on the phone!) or paddle around an infinity pool while enjoying breathtaking ocean views, this is the place. Not doing the full package? No problem; dinner add-ons start as low as $50 per person plus a 17 percent gratuity.
