What do you get when you combine proximity, award-winning accommodations and venues, as well as the highest level of personal service? For meeting planners the answer is Bermuda – an ideal destination for meeting and incentive travel. The destination blends the charm, beauty and excitement of an island with the up-to-the-minute technology and infrastructure of an international business center.
Fast Access. Inspiring Surroundings. Every Need Anticipated.
This mid-Atlantic getaway is home to a range of accommodations, from business-class hotels to elegant cottage colonies, with an array of fully equipped meeting and conference facilities. Groups can enjoy state-of-the-art technology, satellite capabilities and full Wi-Fi utilization. The larger resorts include deluxe meeting spaces; HD monitors, auditoriums and, of course, scenic ocean views.
Planners can also choose from a variety of on- and off-site dining and catering venues. Some distinctive venues include private islands, forts, churches, homes and gardens and the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo.
Bermuda is incredibly convenient for travelers, just under two hours by air from key U.S. East Coast cities. Whatever the group size, location or budget requirements, opportunities await in Bermuda.
Smart Value. Convenient Conversions. A Seamless Destination.
Because meetings in Bermuda are tax deductible for U.S. companies, the island offers a smart value to meeting planners. Bermuda also does not have a sales tax, and food and beverage are not taxed for group functions.
For a seamless commute home, U.S. Customs are cleared on island, allowing travelers fast access to baggage claim.
Exhilarating Activities. Enriching Culture. Golf & Spa.
November through March brings “Golf & Spa” season, when visitors are invited to indulge in active outdoor pursuits – such as golfing, biking and hiking – as well as ultimate relaxation at some of the island’s award-winning spas.
With seven golf courses total, six of which are championship caliber, the lush island features more golf per square mile than any other country. Characterized by spectacular scenery, including dramatic ocean vistas, as well as firm fairways and an unpredictable wind factor, the island’s courses are renowned for both beauty and challenge.
Across the island, hotels and resorts offer a variety of spa opportunities to de-stress while traveling. Guests can leave their worries in the board room while relaxing with spa treatments in a 500,000 year old cave amidst stalagmites and stalactites or in a private gazebo over crystal clear blue waters in a private cove. The spas throughout the island offer a variety of treatments, such as massages, facials, body therapies, couples treatments, hair care and barber shops, reflexology, and electrolysis, guaranteed to calm even the tensest executive.
The Bermuda Department of Tourism is ready to help planners every step of the way.
