Bermuda Savings Without the Triangle

As I write this, it's 60 degrees and raining in Bermuda. Not lovely, but a sight better than the 28 degrees and mired in snow I find in New York. And when we see how much fun Jack Black has in "Gulliver's Travels" trying to locate and escape from the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, well, it seems all signs point southeast.

Bermuda is on the Vacationist's radar.  Because of its unusual mid-Atlantic location, the island of Bermuda cannot always be counted on for stellar sunny weather, especially during the winter. But that's why this normally pricey, resort-of-royalty destination gets more affordable during the winter holidays.

Now, we're seeing two good value specials from Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, and they're in two of Bermuda's finest hotels.

The Fairmont Hamilton (pictured above) is located at 76 Pitts Bay Road, Hamilton, Bermuda, HM11 in Hamilton, the island's main port. Its gleaming pink facade, within walking distance of the piers, has welcomed yachtsmen and families for generations.

This winter, families can experience the manicured, tropical scenery of Bermuda while immersing themselves in the rich culture of the island. The Fairmont Hamilton's Bermuda Family Package offers families luxury accommodation with room rates starting at US$299 per night, with a second free room for kids under 18 years of age. To add to the familial savings, kids under 5 years eat free when choosing items from the children’s menu and children between the ages of 6-12 receive 50% off the regular restaurant menu. In a resort where the food is this good, that's a savings you will seriously take advantage of.  This offer is available through April 30, 2011.

Being beachfront is a huge perk in great weather for sun n'sand lovers, but Bermuda's chill breezes may  make active land sports like tennis an even better bet.  Leave the stuffy air of the winter tennis bubble behind, grab your racquets, and head to the open air courts at the Fairmont Southampton, Bermuda. The island hotel at 101 South Shore Road, Southampton, Bermuda SN02 is welcoming tennis players of any age and ability with the Ace Package. For beginners and experts alike, the hotel’s tennis package includes daily full American breakfast, tennis court fees, a one-hour tennis lesson with the resident pro, racket rental and 15% off any tennis attire at the Tennis Shop. Available year round, rates start at US$442 per night.

Fine print: All packages unless noted otherwise are subject to availability, priced per room, per night, exclude taxes and are based on double occupancy.
