TUCKER’S POINT, BERMUDA
RESORT TYPE: Fractional and whole ownership residences
STYLE: Breathtaking beauty and British charm
OVERVIEW: Community properties (Ship’s Hill, Shell’s Point, The Residence Club at Tucker’s Point and Harbor Court) boast guest rooms and suites with balconies or terraces with stunning water views. Two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences overlook Harrington Sound, Castle Harbor, and the Atlantic Ocean. In April 2009, the Tucker’s Point Hotel & Spa will open providing members with even more amenities.
WL TAKE: The island’s world-class beaches, top notch shopping, clean streets and high security – all with a British pedigree – lend major cachet to this enormous (by Bermudian standards) 200-acre property, which might explain why it is 85 percent sold out. There are 275 fractional owners on site, one-tenth of whom use their unit five times a year. Owners can make a reservation during the week and if its available, fly over for the weekend.
Perks: 12,000-square-foot spa, plush lounges with outdoor daybeds, 2,600-square-foot fitness center, lawn for yoga, Pilates and tai chi, coffee shop, 6,361-yard par 70 newly re-designed golf course, Har-Tru clay tennis courts, beach club, water sport center and many dining options. Residence membership includes full membership to the Tucker’s Point Golf, Beach & Tennis Club, currently priced at $95,000 with annual dues of $6,300.
COST: Whole ownership condominiums run in the $2.5 to $5 million range; fractional condominiums (one-tenth share) start at $355,000 for two-bedrooms and $455,000 for three-bedrooms.
