Jumeirah plans Bermuda resort

The Dubai-based hotel group plans to extend its portfolio in the Americas.

The Dubai-based Jumeirah Group has revealed it is to expand its presence in the Americas with the management of a luxury spa resort in Bermuda.

The new Jumeirah Southlands Resort is the first resort to be built in Bermuda in 35 years and will be situated in 37 acres along Bermuda's South Shore.

The new property will boast 300 balcony suites, a large spa, restaurants and bars, a nightclub, swimming pools, conference amenities and an equestrian centre.

"Bermuda is one of the most enduringly popular destinations in the Americas," said Gerald Lawless, executive chair of Jumeirah.

"The expectations set by the tourism industry and government are beyond compare and we are privileged to be able to manage this resort."

The Southlands resort will open in mid-2008, pending approval from government agencies, and is to play a key part in the group's plans to grow its international portfolio of hotels and resorts to a total of 40 by the end of 2009.
