The Bermuda-based Botelho Wood Architects crafted the hotel’s new dining option.
Bermuda’s Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has opened a new upscale dining experience, Intrepid. Blend beautiful design and delectable food, Intrepid provides an all-encompassing sensory experience. Designed by locally based Botelho Wood Architects, the restaurant captures the spirit of a refined steakhouse with panoramic harbor views and nods to Art Deco design.
“The owners wanted to recognize the hotel’s rich history—Hamilton Princess opened in 1885—with an emphasis on the World War II period,” says the Botelho Wood Architects team.
“During that time, the hotel was the base for British Intelligence regarding correspondence between North America and Europe and was known as the Bletchley of the Tropics. The operation was headed by Sir William Stephenson and his code name was Intrepid. Naming the new restaurant Intrepid provided a means of linking the past with the present.”
