DETAILS

LocationHarrington Sound, United States
Size15.5 acres

The subtropical environment of Harrington Sound, Bermuda, is the home of Tucker’s Point Club Hotel, beach club, villas, and golf community. Originally the site of the ‘30s–era Castle Harbour Hotel, SWA worked to protect much of the indigenous landscape, and site new hotel features on previously developed areas. Amidst the rolling terrain, the 180-room hotel is saddled between two hilltops and boasts views of both Castle Harbour and Harrington Sound. The 15.5-acre site also features numerous caves and a 90-foot-deep chine.

After ten years of planning and more than five years of construction, Tucker’s Point Club Hotel & Spa is touted to be the most expensive and opulent construction in Bermuda’s history, with costs estimated at $800,000 per key. In an effort to control costs and reuse materials, the owners opted to tear down most of the existing structure but left the original steel girders of the building and an outdoor elevator tower for a savings of three million dollars. SWA’s role included siting new buildings on the steep terrain, design of two resort pools and decks, the spa gardens and exercise and croquet lawns, and general landscape and hardscape design for the entire property. Additionally SWA provided design services for the Harbour Court Condos, and the Private Residence Club, which included incorporating a new pool and deck along an existing waterfront docking pier. SWA also coordinated the materials needed for the on-site plant nursery (as all plant material had to be grown or collected on the island).

Juan Tripp, the owner of Pan Am Airlines, purchased the hotel in the 1930s. As people took more trans-Atlantic flights, Mr. Tripp’s planes would leave New York and refuel in Bermuda, where passengers would stay at his hotel prior to flying to London.
