Newstead Belmont Hills in Paget, Bermuda
When Newstead Belmont Hills opened in 2008, it was the first new resort development in Bermuda in 35 years. Modern rooms with hardwood floors and mosaic-tiled marble bathrooms enjoy views of Hamilton Harbor, where complimentary water taxis take guests to destinations across the island. Golfers won’t want to miss tee time at the Algie M. Pulley, Jr.-designed 18-hole course overlooking the Great Sound – a complimentary round is included with each stay.
Get your blood flowing with an early morning tennis match. Lounge the day away at the edge of the harborside infinity pool. Take a quick jaunt over to a pink-sand beach and scour the shore for shells. Book a corner table for dinner, feeling the Bermudan breeze bid farewell to the sun’s last rays. Feast on fresh sashimi – unangi, ebi, ikura, maguro and salmon caviar – paired with a glass of chilled chardonnay.

Reviews for Newstead Belmont Hills
Lovely hotel, suites are good, right on the harbour. Convenient to Hamilton and all parts of Bermuda, so access to public transportation is one of the best spots on the island. Have been a guest there before and saw a marked improvement in the staff attitude this time, something that was definitely detracting before. Could be a 5 star resort, but currently misses the mark and I would rate it at a 3.5-3.7, even though they bill themselves as a luxury resort. Linens, towels, toiletries are nice but not really high end, furniture is nice but more Marriott than Intercontinental or Hyatt. When compared to the Hamilton Princess renovations and the new condo/hotels opening on the island, Newstead comes up short. Water shuttle is great amenity, but schedule is geared to business guests commuting across the harbour to work rather than to the tourist guest. The hotel shuttle van is good, but only runs to the golf course, a restaurant, and the hotel that lets guests use their ocean front beach. Maybe add a few trips into Hamilton to augment the water shuttle and perhaps down the road to the grocery store? Since only a pre-set number of people are allowed to use the ocean beach of the other hotel, it might be time to explore other options. The fine attention to details is another area that holds back Newstead: scuffed walls, dirty woodwork, burned out lights, and drawers that are off their runners are things that should be checked and fixed, but are left alone. The rooms were clean, but a luxury hotel does more. I would love to see Newstead move up a notch. The old chicken vs. egg dilemma; if they discount their rooms all the time, they will get the mid-range guests and only be able to garner a mid-range rating. If they don't discount their rooms, will they attract enough guests to warrant the investment in making this a truly 5 star resort? Only time will tell. We like the location enough that we'll be back again, as it is a nice place to stay. But Claridge's (London) it's not. Don't know what to say about the ownership options they offer: nice but expensive, given the mid-range feel of the rooms. The wealthy visitor has lots of high end options on the island now, so will bypass Newstead.

I didn't choose this place, however I was extremely happy upon seeing my room and looking around. Nice view of the harbor and Hamilton. The infinity pool and hot tub are great - wonderful setting to watch the sun set. The room was a mini apartment- nice kitchen and living room. The bath was nice with a large jacuzzi tub and separate shower. We'd love to come back again!!

We have been vacationing at the Newstead for 9 years and it is wonderful. The stay is essentially unchanged and they are exceptional. The food is great and the Zanzibar Tapas Lounge is a great addition. The beach at Coco Reefs I beautiful and the hotel provides a shuttle. The sunsets are phenomenal the staff at Belmont Hills Golf Course is very friendly. Best of all! Bermuda is visitor friendly, with great restaurants and "no" surprises. By the way, the Infinity Pool and large jacuzzi are a perfect way to end the day.

Although everything was great I had a room overlooking the harbor that excluded the westerly view of the sunset. Dinner was outdoors and delicious, prompt and pleasant service, with a full sunset spectacular, Wow!

The facility was outstanding, accommodations were superb, and housekeeping staff were the best. We dealt with two bellmen who were most accommodating and anxious to help us feel "at home". The water shuttle to Hamilton was most convenient and appreciated - it was a "God sent". My wife of fifty years and I experienced two disappointments, namely, the "concierges" were helpful to the extent that they answered questions asked as best they could, but offered no additional information or help as to places to see or things to do - I'm not certain that they were exposed to all that the island had to offer, and secondly, Bermuda is not totally handicap accessible and we struggled in a few situations. We enjoyed our second honeymoon, but did not anticipate some of the island changes.
