Tuckerís Point Hotel & Spa on Bermuda Signs Letter
of Intent To be
Operated by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts; Brian Young Continues
as Managing Director
HAMILTON PARISH, Bermuda Ė October 26, 2010 Ė The acclaimed Tuckerís Point Hotel & Spa, the first luxury hotel to be built in Bermuda in more than 40 years, has entered into a Letter of Intent to bring Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in as its operator. The announcement was made today by Ed Trippe, founder and president of Tuckerís Point, paving the way for the property to be re-branded as Rosewood Tuckerís Point.
Tuckerís Point sits on 200 acres of the most beautiful, privately-owned parcel of waterfront land in Bermuda, neighboring the estates of Tuckerís Town and offering breathtaking vistas of Castle Harbour, Harrington Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Developed over eight years, it is remarkable for its Bermudian cottage colony style architecture, classically luxurious interiors, and compelling residential and guest facilities. They include the 18-hole Tuckerís Point Golf Course which abuts and shares accolades with Bermudaís venerable Mid Ocean Club, the 88-room Tuckerís Point Hotel & Spa, which opened in April 2009, a 10,000-square foot spa, tennis courts and a croquet lawn, fine dining restaurant, the longest private, pink sand beach on-island, and several residential communities. Among the latter are two residential clubs, the first of which introduced the concept of fractional ownership to Bermuda.
In making the announcement, Mr. Trippe said, ďWeíre proud of how far weíve come in raising the bar for hospitality and services in Bermuda. Tuckerís Point has evolved into a highly complex operation, so the timing is right to enlist a world-class operating company. Rosewood will enhance our training and management programs, bring opportunities for career growth to our employees and generally improve our operations and systems.Ē
John Scott, president and CEO of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, added, ďWeíre delighted to have Tuckerís Point join our prestigious Rosewood collection which includes such iconic properties as The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel in New York City, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, and Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda. Our international stature and marketing reach will benefit Bermuda, reinforcing those qualities which contribute to its success as a tourism destination: high service levels, excellent accommodations and a wide range of amenities and attractions.Ē
Day-to-day operation of the property will remain in the hands of Brian Young, Tuckerís Pointís executive vice president operations, and an erstwhile Rosewood Hotels & Resorts executive (prior managing director of Rosewood at Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and corporate vice president of operations for the parent company in Dallas.) His title will change to managing director.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is expected to assume management of Tuckerís Point within the next 60 Ė 90 days.
