SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda -- Sonesta Hotels and Resorts said the Sonesta
Beach Resort & Spa Bermuda here will re-open May 15, after
undergoing a major renovation.
Plans to revamp the property were already in the works last year
when Hurricane Fabian hit last September. The $78 million project
was to be phased in over several years while the 400-room resort
continued to operate as usual.
All that changed when the strongest storm to hit the island in
50 years slammed into the resort. The Sonesta closed immediately
and new plans were put in place.
The renovation includes updating all public spaces and guest
rooms, as well as the property's Water Park including its 3 pools,
water slide, waterfalls and fountains and more. The hotel will
boast new eateries including a Sushi restaurant.
