Elbow Beach

60 South Shore Rd.
Paget , Bermuda
441 236-3535

In the next few years, when the last stroke of clotted cream–colored paint is applied to the grand dowager duchess of Bermuda resorts, when the last lacy fan of dried marine algae is mounted in a box frame and hung, Elbow Beach will be rebranded as a Mandarin Oriental resort. (The company currently holds only the management contract.) Guests can already see the transformation in the 235 guest rooms and the spa. Scuttled once and for all are the juicy pinks and greens and the hothouse florals. In place of that endearing look is a soothing and serene palette, with sharp tailored furniture in blond wood and natural wicker. The spa, with its bamboo floors, hand-carved granite tubs, and river-rock showers, is a page from the same stylish book.
