The Wyndham (Sonesta) has been demolished. It could be redeveloped in the future. In the meantime why not check out The Reefs or the Fairmont Southampton. Both hotels are in the same area and have great reputations.
The Wyndham closed at the end of October 2006. In 2007 the resort was purchased by Scout Real Estate Capital of New York. They demolished the property with the intention of building a new $300 million 5-star hotel on the site. In 2008 the plans were scrapped when Lehman Brothers, the main financier, filed for bankruptcy. In March 2013 the site was purchased by the Green family of Bermuda. They are currently considering options for its future development. The family also owns the Fairmont Hamilton Princess.
The Wyndham Bermuda Resort and Spa offers an oceanfront setting and 33 acres of landscaped grounds surrounding three natural beaches in Southampton Parish. Previously the Sonesta, the hotel has undergone major refurbishment since being purchased by Wyndham International.
One of the most significant features of the hotel is its water park, Wahoo! The park offers one main pool; three family activity pools; a 110-foot body slide; two river rides including a 188-foot ride through caves and an infinity Jacuzzi with room for up to 30. Other amenities include the Cedar Spa with separate male and female spas, a gymnasium, relaxation lounges, sauna and steam bath.
With 4 restaurants to choose from diners are spoilt for choice. At Chameleon, where the décor changes with the menu, guests can enjoy American and International cuisine indoors or al fresco. Sazanami serves a full sashimi, nigiri and sushi menu while the Tip Toe Lounge offers a full beverage service and pub style food throughout the day. The Pearl Onion is an outdoor lounge area, overlooking the water park, serving refreshing beverages, lunch and dinner.
All rooms feature individual climate controls, cable TV, safes, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards, air-conditioning, bathrobes, bathroom amenities, coffeemakers, high-speed internet access, voicemail, and patios or balconies.
The hotel is located on the South Road in Southampton Parish. Attractions nearby include Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, Horseshoe Bay, the Port Royal Golf Course and the Railway Trail. Bus stops are close by offering easy access to Hamilton and the Royal Naval Dockyard. Those who wish to explore Bermuda at their own pace can rent a scooter from Smatt’s Cycle Livery.
The Wyndham Bermuda Resort also offers shoeshine, babysitting, computer rentals, hairdressing, valet laundry service, tour assistance, and a complimentary children’s program.
