Old English charm comes to life at Rosewood Tucker's Point resort in Bermuda

BERMUDA -- Rosewood Tucker's Point, an 88-room resort that opened in 2009, is the first "new" resort on the island of Bermuda in nearly 40 years.

Only a handful of steel frames and a brick ceiling in the wine room of the Point Restaurant remain from the old Castle Harbour Marriott. The spoils of five-star luxury have replaced the old parts, all with the same vistas of Castle Harbour, the Harrington Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.

The resort boasts Bermuda's longest private pink-sand beach, a 12,000-square-foot spa, a tennis club, an intimate library that serves afternoon tea and a charming croquet lawn, another link to its British heritage. The highlight has to be the Point Restaurant, a jacket-only dining experience surrounded by gorgeous murals depicting ports of call around the world.

Tucker's Point Club, formerly the Castle Harbour Golf Club, plays as a fine 6,491-yard par-70 course that dances across severe terrain. Roger Rulewich redesigned this fun resort course in 2002, but Director of Golf Paul Adams said he hopes to eventually unlock more of the flavor of the original Charles Banks design dating to the 1930s.

Best of all, the resort has a "relationship" with The Mid Ocean Club next door. Normally, the private Mid Ocean only allows outside play on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but Tucker's Point guests have more access.
