Alright, fine. Budget Travel officially scooped me—the magazine first reported the following hotel deal on April 1—but that just proves the Bermuda Department of Tourism’s Sizzling Summer Offer is truly value-packed. Book one of 17 participating hotels until April 30 for stays valid from May 1 through October 31 and you’ll get a hotel credit: $600 for a six-night stay, $500 for a five-night stay or $400 for a four-night stay. With rooms starting at just $249 at the luxurious Fairmont Southampton or the historic Fairmont Hamilton Princess, that’s like getting two nights free (if of course you book for five nights; for a full list of participating hotels check out the Sizzling Summer Offer). Remember, you have to book by April 30 to get the hotel credit so act fast. That could be YOU strolling on secluded Church Bay.
