Want to go one better? The island’s top-class resorts offer all the benefits of a beach retreat with the convenience of clean towels and cocktail service from a heated pool with a view.

Whether you’re lounging in private cabanas, soaking in hilltop hot tubs or cooling off in a subterranean grotto, escape is never far away. Here’s a list of 10 places to soak up a good time.

1. Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa

Newstead Belmont Hills: You might just float off to sea after slipping into Newstead’s infinity-edge pool. Heated in cooler months, it gives the illusion of merging into the harbour. Soak in the jacuzzi or lounge on plush chaise. The gorgeous sundeck bar is upstaged only by the sweeping water view – one of Bermuda’s most impressive.

Lunge straight into a Slim Aarons photo shoot at Rosewood Bermuda's Palm Court Pool. Heated for year-round use, the pool is surrounded by lush palms, canopied daybeds plus food and drink service to ensure you’re never without a Dark ‘n Stormy ®. Down at The Beach Club two more pools overlook the island’s longest, private, pink sand beach.

A retreat built for romance, you’ll find child-free luxury at a multilevel infinity pool surrounded by palm trees and waterfalls on this 30-acre peninsula. Their Roman-style relaxation pool, restaurant and bar offer panoramic views of the Atlantic from a private beach. To dial up the drama, three of its cottage-style rooms include private plunge pools.

4. Hamilton Princess & Beach Club

Feel spoilt for choice – it’s drink or swim at this saltwater, infinity-edge pool on Hamilton Harbour. The poolside bar is a dream, with cocktails on tap, craft beers, in-water loungers and locally-made Alex & Pete’s ice cream. The pool is heated in cooler months, so it’s always the perfect temperature for relaxing. You’ll only leave to move to the whirlpool, hot tub. For those looking for a work out or a kid free zone, the spa also boasts a heated outdoor lap pool for adults only.

5. Azura Bermuda

Azura, Bermuda’s newest boutique hotel and residential resort, is the serenest of retreats. Spend hours at the pool watching the day pass by high atop a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Azura's pristine private beach. If you are lucky, during the months of March and April, you may witness humpback whales breaching as they migrate north.

6. Grotto Bay Beach Resort

For accessible service, this family-friendly, heated pool has a swim-up bar with gorgeous views of Castle Harbour. Perhaps even better is the view from the subterranean Cathedral Cave pool. A natural wonder, the ancient, underground lake is lit from within to illuminate the spectacular rock formations and stalagmites beneath the resort’s tropical gardens.

7. Rosedon Hotel

A haven of style and character, you’ll find a refuge well-suited to Mark Twain at this Relais & Chateaux property just stone’s throw from town. Laze under royal blue umbrellas around the lush garden pool setting. Built in 1906, the boutique hotel retains Bermuda’s distinct British heritage amid tropical blooms, banana trees and towering palms. With a focus on seasonal drinks and fare, on-site restaurant Huckleberry delivers its Sea & Farm to Table menu directly to the pool.

8. The Loren Hotel

Perched cliffside with uninterrupted views of the Atlantic horizon, the heated terrace pools — one for adults and one for families —are modern and sophisticated settings for a refreshing dip. Order delicious seasonal food and cocktails from plush lounge chairs or one of four private cabanas. Attendants provide everything from magazines to pool bites and cold drinks from morning until evening when the pools glow beneath the night sky.

9. Pompano Beach Club

Arguably the best view in 21 square miles, this breathtaking oceanfront setting, overlooks Bermuda's southwest coast, to clear, turquoise waters and a sand bar with floating pontoons. With steps leading to private beach, sip drinks from the wrap-around pool bar or in one of the club’s three outdoor, hot tubs. The main pool stands out for its colourful, mosaic-tiled Pompano fish design at the bottom.
