Hammetts Hotel, opened in 2020, is located directly on Hammetts Wharf, just steps from the Marina and at the foot of the seaside action. The hotel is closely tied with its waterfront surroundings and maritime history down to its design, which is a nod to Newport’s historic mercantile wharves carefully blended with the aesthetic of a modern yacht club. A sponsor of iconic boating races from Newport Bermuda to the Rolex Race, and the official hotel partner of The New York Yacht Club, Hammetts is the leading choice for the world’s top sailors and yachtsmen when in Newport.
Located in Bermuda’s Hamilton Parish, Leamington Estate is a stunning 8-bedroom, 12,000 sq ft. residence overlooking Harrington Sound and sitting atop an extensive underground network of crystal caves accessible only by guests of the property. The historic site, originally a tourist attraction for its breathtaking caves, was developed by the commodore of the Harrington Sound Sailing Club and a leading Bermudian architect to now offer one-of-a-kind accommodations and amenities available exclusively for Hammetts’ Newport Bermuda Race package holders and private rentals.
