The Green family, who own the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, have purchased the Sonesta Beach Hotel.

The property will be re-named the Southampton Beach Resort.

The family, which includes Peter Green and his sons Andrew and Alexander, purchased the Fairmont Hamilton Princess in September, and also own the Waterloo property. 

A press release said the family intends to now review and analyse the previous plans for the site, as developed by Southampton Beach Resort, and will in due course meet with Government, planning and relevant stakeholders to consider the best product for the site, and for Bermuda. That process is already underway, but may take some time to complete.

Andrew Green, on behalf of the family, said: “We understand that there may be interest in our plans for the land, and particularly given our ownership of The Fairmont Hamilton Princess, however, it is important that we now take some time to consider all the appropriate options. For now our main focus continues to be planning for The Fairmont Hamilton Princess upgrade and, when that is complete, we will work to see how we can best utilise the former Sonesta property.”
