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
I've stayed at the Newstead a few times in various 1 bedroom apartments. These are fitted out with a combined kitchen, dining and sitting area with separate bedroom with dressing area, both rooms having access to a large balcony with views across to Hamilton. It's a more self contained arrangement than most hotels in Bermuda and generally service and cleanliness etc is good. On the downside: quality of bedding and particularly pillows is not top notch; it can take an age to get checked in as there is usually only one person on reception; and the room service menu gets monotonous after a while. Plus points: the main restaurant has great views; the free ferry ride to Hamilton is a great way to start the day; the free shuttle to and from the airport is good; and it doesn't feel as corporate as many of the other local hotels.

Loved the room with a view. The Infiniti pool was great and easy access to the fairies to go across to Hamilton. Everything takes a little longer to do but that is Island time for ya. I can't wait to go back.
We stayed at the Newstead for 4 nights at the beginning of July. We stayed in a 2 double bed room with a balcony that overlooked the harbour ( pretty views). The room was of a good size for 2 people. The balcony was quite large and was furnished with 2 wicker chairs and small wicker table. The bathroom was also of a good size. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were spotless and crisp. The room was tidy and cleaned daily. The rooms could be improved by getting a fresh coat of paint as the walls were a little dirty/stained and scuffed. Although this is normal wear and tear, rooms are definitely due to be repainted; it would make the rooms so much nicer and not detract from the clean feel. A fresh coat of paint goes a long way. The hotel offers a complimentary ferry shuttle service into town a few times in the morning and a few times in the evening after 5. The ride across into Hamilton is only about 8 minutes. The the Newstead ferry runs everyday but Sunday. There is also a public ferry that stops very close by (2- 3 minute walk from hotel) that one can use if the times don't work out with the complimentary service or if you are there on a Sunday. You can purchase tokens right across in Hamilton. The infinity pool is pretty and clean, and overlooks the harbour. We had lunch by the pool upon arrival and had the best turkey Ciabatta sandwiches. There are 2 restaurants on site, Beau Rivage and Sansibar. We ate at Beaurivage (fantastic - review in restaurant review) and Sansibar (casual, very good burgers and tapas). We didn't have the chance to dine at Blu (off site restaurant). The desk clerks, attendants, all staff are very friendly and approachable. The hotel is pretty quiet and guests are mostly comprised of couples of all ages, and a few families. We would stay at the Newstead again.

Stayed here 6 nights in a One bedroom suite. Really, we had a wonderful visit. Our balcony overlooked Hamilton harbor. We spent several morning hours looking out at the harbor activity as we had coffee and light breakfast. The kitchen was fully equipped so having breakfast in your suite is simple. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is very helpful. They provide transportation to a beach, right next to Elbow Beach (Coco Beach Club), restaurants they are affiliated with, Fourways (exceptional) and Blu (also very good) and ferry service to Hamilton across the harbor. The staff are very friendly and efficient.

The Newstead Belmont Hills is located on the south side of the bay from Hamilton. The property is pretty. The two restaurants they have are great. The Chef Jean Paul is French and you will eat well. The rooms are very nice and clean. Wooden floors. But unlike many of the hotels in Bermuda, you don't feel like you're staying at your grandmother's house. Bermuda is British and some hotels can feel classically outdated on the interior of the rooms. Not this place. Nice pool. Great water ferry service to Hamilton. The sunsets overlooking the harbor are superb. I would definitely stay here again.
