The Loren At Pink Beach In Beautiful Bermuda



Happy Weekend everyone! Last week, I finally got to visit a place that I've always wanted to  visit for years- Bermuda! I stayed at the fabulous, newest beach resort on the island, The Loren At Pink Beach

 The first hotel built on Bermuda in decades, The Loren’s rooms and suites offer a new level of elegance and style to the destination. Whichever you choose for your stay, you’ll find a cool and contemporary design, embodying a Bermudian spirit infused with an understated, luxurious, modern look. The Loren also offers fabulous Villas, and even residences.

I took a direct early evening flight from Miami to Bermuda. The flight was only 2.5 hours. I arrived at the hotel around 10:30pm. The hotel is very close to the airport- about 25 minutes away. (They don't have uber, but there are plenty of cabs on the island. The Loren was nice enough to schedule cab pick ups for me throughout my entire trip.) 

When I first arrived to The Loren, I loved the modern driveway, and the architecture. The Loren is a seaside resort with modern urban art and style. The Loren’s interior decor uses a palette of natural woods and light grays to create a calm and elegant space. Stylish and contemporary design can be found throughout the entire hotel.

 The lobby has a gorgeous floating spiral glass staircase that definitely heightens the sense of elegance. Everywhere you turn there are reminders that you are in Bermuda, from custom carpets with abstract designs based on maps of the island to the inescapable views of the ocean and coastline. I was immediately greeted by the very friendly Cole, who works at the front desk. If you need anything at all, Cole is the best!







I stayed in a spacious 600 square foot Ocean King Suite with panoramic oceanfront views. The room was like a luxurious apartment, and my favorite things about the suite were the balcony and the large bath tub in the marble bathroom.







As far as dining, The Loren has great options and amazing food! The main restaurant, The Pink Beach Club, showcases spectacular views of the Atlantic and offers a casual interpretation of the culinary team’s commitment to seasonal locally sourced cuisine, served right at the water’s edge! 

The spacious restaurant is outdoors (covered), and I loved eating here for dinner because you can hear the waves hitting the rocks below, and it's very relaxing. At night, they even have a Dj playing cool lounge-like music. 

The Pink Beach Club, offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner- with different menus for each meal of course. The fancier fine-dining indoor restaurant called, Marée, offers great cuisine and even a private dining room. 



Room service is also a great idea! I enjoyed ordering breakfast and eating it on my enormous balcony while watching the beautiful  turquoise hues of the ocean. 



The pool and beach is where you will most likely spend all of your time. If you can ever leave your fabulous room, that is. I enjoyed the pool sooooo much. The Loren’s two heated pools—one for adults and one for families—are the center of life at the resort by day. It is extremely relaxing with as much sun as you could possibly want. With views over the Atlantic Ocean, there’s no better place for a refreshing dip. 

They have a very friendly staff at the pool/beach, and you can also order off of their delicious food and beverage menu. Taj was super friendly and really went above and beyond to make my experience perfect.   

I highly recommend the frosé and the PINK burger. The burger was definitely one of the best burgers I've ever tasted and I am a burger person. The aged cheddar is covered in a delicious onion relish- it's something you definitely must try!




Just below the pool deck, you’ll find one of Bermuda’s famous pink beaches. Yes, the sand really is pink in person! Here, you will see the stunning turquoise blue water along the resort’s edge gently breaks on the rose-colored sand. This beach has calm waters, and is perfect for snorkeling along the reef, alongside the large green colored parrot fish, taking a dip, or just sitting beachside and enjoying yourself.

Not only is the sand at the beach actually pink, the sunsets are beyond stunning too! I shot this gorgeous white dress from Lulu's on the rocks at the beach with beautiful pink sky over the horizon behind me. This was around sunset, and it was truly magical. Just a thought: this would be a super gorgeous background for wedding/special occasion and family photos!






Every night is a different colored sunset at The Loren. It's definitely a plus during your stay!





The Loren At Pink Beach also offers a top of the line fitness center that offers yoga classes, and an amazing spa. The Spa offers an opportunity for healing or simply relaxing. Pause here and linger as you are swept away by views of the Atlantic Ocean extending to the horizon. The Spa’s extensive menu offers specialized massages, facials, and other treatments.

The Spa offers four treatment rooms—including one couples room—two mani-pedi stations, a three-chair hair salon, men’s and women’s locker rooms with steam rooms, and a relaxation lounge with ocean views.




St. George's

St. George is a small historic town, located just past the airport on the north side of the island. It is just a quick 20 minutes from the hotel. If you visit Bermuda, you have to visit St. George's. St. George's is where the cruise ships stop, and I totally see why.

The colorful architecture is hundreds of years old, and every corner is picture-perfect. You can find many gift shops to buy souvenirs, including "Robertson's", a modern drug store that offers everything you need, places to eat, and important landmarks.







In the town of St. George's you will find the ship from 1606 (it has been renovated since) that founded the island of Bermuda. Due to past hurricanes and the fact that it is over 400 years old, it has been remade several times, but the size remains the same. It is actually very small in person.





One of the most memorable place I went to was St. Peter's Church. St. Peter's Church is the oldest church in the Western Hemisphere. Unfortunately, It was closed on Sunday, the day I visited, but I did get to see the small and peaceful cemetery grounds behind the church that is open to the public. 








You can actually walk all of St. George's in about an hour. I loved the history of St. George's, it is most definitely going on the list of one of the oldest towns I've ever been to. Bermudians are so sweet and friendly. I think this is definitely one of my favorite places I have ever been!


Hamilton


The main city and capital in Bermuda is Hamilton. Hamilton is located in the center of the island and is much larger and has way more people than St. George's. Hamilton is very modern (it is a very Americanized city), and there are lots of things to do, and places to eat.

I only visited Hamilton for about an hour on one of the days that I went. It is only 20 minutes south from the hotel by taxi. There are tons of shops, bars, and restaurants. I stopped by the harbor (where you can catch the ferry that goes to the other side of the island), to take a few photos. The harbor is very beautiful and in the distance you can see beautiful houses in the hills.










I absolutely loved my visit to Bermuda and my stay at The Loren At Pink Beach. I will defiantly be back soon, and recommend everyone to stay at The Loren At Pink Beach Bermuda.
