Hotel at a Glance: Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa
At Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa, you can swim through the subterranean caves from which it takes its name. They’re located along the shore, where the hotel’s private pink-sand beaches give way to a lush tropical forest preserve. Go snorkeling, paddleboarding, and kayaking in the warm, clear waters; experienced sailors can set sail on rental sailboats and windsurfing boards (seasonal).
- The Hibiscus Room—one of three onsite restaurants—plates gourmet dishes such as Guinness-braised lamb shank and pan-seared lemon and Thai curry red snapper.
- Take a dip in the pool and lounge in the outdoor hot tub, located in a garden above the beach.
- Recently renovated rooms have contemporary island decor and views of the turquoise sea from the patios. They’re located in small, colorful cottages not far from the beach.
- Get pampered at the onsite Natura Cave Spa. Built inside a cave, this spa offers treatments such as a hot-stone massage, anti-aging facial, or body scrub (additional charges apply).

Bailey’s Bay, Bermuda: Peaceful Parish Close to Historic Towns and Capital City
Removed from the frenetic pace of central Bermuda, Bailey’s Bay has a secluded feel and spectacular natural attractions. The town flirts with the Bermuda coast, where you can kayak above coral reefs and wrecked ships. Dive shops equip certified and non-certified explorers for tank dives and snorkeling trips, where divers observe Bermuda’s exotic marine life.
A short bus ride north will get you to the 400-year-old town of St. George, which showcases Bermuda’s history in well-kept buildings, monuments, and forts dating back to 1612. Shoppers can stroll along colonial streets to browse the wares of craft vendors and watch costumed reenactments of historical incidents around the square’s replica stocks and pillory. About a block away, Saint Peter’s Church—one of the oldest Anglican churches in the Western Hemisphere—touts tombstones and ancient architecture.
