The Reefs in Bermuda is widely recognized as the best resort on the island. It’s a small, almost boutique hotel, with only 65 rooms and suites. Luxury Travel enjoys small resorts such as this, for the balance of intimacy and privacy. Elite travelers’ high standards of service are more easily met at a smaller resort hotel, and The Reefs in Bermuda exemplifies this. And now, a Christmas holiday in Bermuda is even better at the island’s best resort hotel.
Every room has an ocean view in this lovely hotel. The pink sand beach at The Reefs is private, and the winter holiday season has a great travel deal: The Reefs gives Christmas free to guests staying 5 or more nights. Deals like this are a great incentive to travel, and spend the winter holiday at a luxury island resort.

Guests of The Reef during the winter holiday season will also find some special activities arranged for the New Year. On the day of New Year’s Eve, the “Cool Dip Club” will take an early morning dip in the ocean (the Atlantic gets cold this time of year!) followed by hot coffee and brandy. There is live entertainment in the resort lounge on New Year’s Eve, and the next morning there is some entertainment on the Ocean Echo terrace during late breakfast and lunch.
At once relaxing, private, and romantic, The Reefs is an ideal place to spend the Christmas holiday and ring in the New Year. Times are leaner for many people wanting to budget their vacations well, and the free Christmas stay (with a 5-day trip) deal helps stretch travel dollars. Both Conde Nast and Travel & Leisure both consider The Reefs the best hotel in Bermuda; the service here is considered the best on the island as well. Experiencing top-notch treatment during a well-earned Christmas holiday is a wonderful way to bring the year to an end, and start a new one.
