News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – Westend Properties is very pleased to share the exciting news that the beloved Waterlot Inn at the Fairmont Southampton will be reopening on December 3, 2024, following the completion of extensive interior and exterior renovations. Housed in a building that dates back to 1670, the destination restaurant has always been an island favourite and we are eager to welcome patrons back in a few short months. The hiring process for the reopening is beginning this week.

“Works at the Waterlot are ongoing,” said Kiaran MacDonald, Reginal Vice President, Caribbean and General Manager of the Fairmont Southampton. “We are very happy with the progress being made and are looking forward to hosting everyone back at the iconic restaurant that’s been an institution in Bermuda for decades.”

Local companies are leading the efforts on the overhaul of the Waterlot. For instance, Bermuda-based Atlantic Mooring Maintenance Ltd has been responsible for the replacement of the dock; that part of the renovation is almost complete and The Dock establishment is on course to reopen early in 2025. Local contractor BCM Construction is taking on the interior renovations. The new furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) have already been ordered. The bathrooms are being completely redone and all of the rooms will benefit from a fresh coat of paint, updated lighting and brand-new carpeting and window treatments.

Performance Construction Ltd will be undertaking the necessary work on the exterior of the building, including replacing the roof and repairing the façade. We anticipate that this phase of the project will begin the first week of August.

“It will be wonderful to have people back at the Waterlot Inn, meeting for delicious food and drink, and taking in the spectacular views of the bay,” MacDonald continued.

Alessandro Colantonio, Chief Investment Officer at Gencom, added: “This is an exciting step in the continuation of the process of reopening the resort. We look forward to sharing further updates on our progress in the weeks ahead.”
