Resting on the island's highest point, the all-encompassing resort provides breathtaking views of the America's Cup racecourse and is conveniently situated right in the middle between the America's Cup Village in Dockyard and the city centre of Hamilton, Bermuda's capital.

Shelley Meszoly, Regional Director of Marketing & Sales at Fairmont Southampton, comments: “The America's Cup is an exceptional reason to book the island-paradise of Bermuda while enjoying one of the world's most popular sports events. It's an exciting time to visit, and Fairmont Southampton offers a number of experiences to guests to get in on the action whether they are a sailing aficionado or a holiday sun seeker.”
