The Pink Lady is getting more than a facelift.

Renovations at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess are moving along nicely.

The first phase of the project will transform the west side pool into a contemporary resort infinity pool, private cabanas, floating sun loungers on islands within the pool, a splash area for children, family pool and a lap pool. 

The pool area, which will be almost three times the size of the current pool, will have loungers, shaded seating and hammocks, all with uninterrupted views of Hinson’s Island and Hamilton Harbour. 

Pergolas will be incorporated into new landscaping. There will also be a new hot tub and enhancements to the poolside food and beverage offering.

 A renovation of 69 guestrooms and suites in the Poinciana wing of the hotel is also part of phase I.  

The floor-to-ceiling renovation will include new furniture, fixtures and equipment inside the rooms, as well as an extension of the balconies and terraces overlooking Hamilton Harbour. 

The wireless Internet and audio-visual features will be upgraded and contemporary new tile and stone will be used in the luxury bathrooms. 

In addition, two ultra-luxury two-bedroom suites will be created with extended balconies that will have 180 degree views over Hamilton Harbour. The two-bedroom suites will have a private dining and living room area. n
