GENCOM UNVEILS $25 MILLION RENOVATION OF ROSEWOOD BERMUDA
Gencom, a leading Miami-based investment firm that invests in high end hospitality and residential real estate globally, today unveils the $25 million extensive renovation of the ultra-luxury Rosewood Bermuda, located in Tucker’s Point. The renovation comes on the heels of Gencom’s successful acquisition of the renowned property in May 2017. The investment further underscores the firm’s steadfast commitment to the long-term growth of the island’s tourism and hospitality sector, complementing Bermuda’s strong tourism economy and visitation, as well as Bermuda Tourism Authority’s strategy to reintroduce the island as a contemporary, multi-generational destination. Bermuda benefits from direct flight access from Europe and the eastern coast of the US, making it a natural destination for international travelers in search of an island destination offering unparalleled luxury accommodations.
Gracing approximately 240 acres of the most beautiful waterfront master development in Bermuda and neighboring the impressive estates of Tucker’s Town, the modernized resort features 88 elevated guestrooms; a redesigned lobby; an enhanced Beach Club; an upgraded Golf Clubhouse; reimagined dining outlets; a vibrant new bar that is a popular gathering spot for locals, resort guests and the private member’s club alike; and a revitalized spa with new wellness and fitness offerings.
“Bermuda is experiencing a tourism renaissance, and we are pleased to help support the island’s revitalization by providing an unparalleled resort destination for discerning international travelers,” said Karim Alibhai, founder and principal of Gencom. “We are excited to partner with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to re-set the bar for luxury travel on the island.”
The resort’s redesign seamlessly combines the elegance of the island’s colonial English heritage with the vibrancy of its native culture for a unique and authentic Bermudian experience. The design of the guestrooms and suites, lobby and new lobby bar were led by Dawson Design Associates. London-based designer, Alexander Waterworth Interiors Ltd., was responsible for the redesign of the resort’s signature restaurant and bar, Beach Club and Golf Clubhouse.
“The renovation is a testament to Rosewood Bermuda’s commitment to providing unmatched luxury accommodations, the highest level of service, and modern amenities that appeal to today’s luxury, global travelers,” said Paul Telford, managing director of Rosewood Bermuda.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed into an elegant and intimate lobby, more akin to a private manor house than a resort. Rosewood Bermuda’s 88 guestrooms and suites have been transformed into intimate, residential-style retreats, featuring bespoke furniture, contemporary local art and a soft color palate punctuated with azure blue accents.
The all-new Conservatory Bar and Lounge is a popular gathering space for resort guests, the private member’s club and locals where they can enjoy hand-crafted British gin cocktails and spirits enhanced by fresh herbs, house-made infusions and the latest mixology techniques. With its twin fireplaces, black and white hand-painted tile floor and elegant beamed ceilings, the new bar is a fusion of both old and new. Boasting local art, casual and inviting décor and relaxed, friendly Bermudian service, the bar is complemented by the intimacy of the new courtyard, which brings a rustic accent to the space.
