The Deal
Thanks to its Atlantic setting, the pink-sanded island chain of Bermuda is only coming into high season now, at the same time as northern states kick into high gear. While this British-owned archipelago is renowned for its high price tags, deals can still be found to this refined spot, where Old World charms, historic towns, and plentiful golf courses abound. Act now and you can enjoy a spring or summer holiday here from only $1,109.

Deluxe Bermuda holiday for $1,109
Want to enjoy luxury perks at three-star prices? offers a steal of a deal to Bermuda, starting at $1,109 for a four-night getaway at a four-star resort. This covers air from a variety of departure cities; and lodging at The Fairmont Southampton, a classy beachfront property where each room comes with a private balcony or terrace and the on-premise facilities are extensive. In fact, Frommer’s describes it as “the largest and most luxurious property on the island.” Note that this low price is available only for departures between June 1–Aug. 4 and Aug. 20–Sept. 30.

Bermuda spring escape for $1,478
We spotted another terrific Bermuda bargain on Expedia: a four-night spring holiday at an oceanfront property, with roundtrip airfare from New York, now priced at only $1,478. Valid for travel through the end of May, this package covers a sojourn at Coco Reef Resort located on a private beach overlooking the Atlantic. Each Bermudian-style guestroom, with pastel colors and original artwork, features private balconies and original artwork. As a perk, complimentary breakfast is served daily.

Bermuda beach hideaway for $1,427
Expedia offers another well-priced spring option to Bermuda, if you’re able to pick up and travel through the end of May. A four-night getaway at upscale resort now sells for only $1,427, with a flight from New York. Accommodation included is at Cambridge Beaches Resort, a cottage colony set on a peninsula edged by the ocean and a wide bay. Located just a 20-minute complimentary ferry ride away from Hamilton, this property comes with five pink-sand beaches and a renowned European spa.

The dollars
The package rates above are listed per person, based on double occupancy. For the Cheap Caribbean package, the price reflects savings of the fourth night entirely free. The two Expedia spring packages are pricier but that’s only because spring is the most popular season for visiting Bermuda. We checked rack rates at the featured properties and, taking the included airfare into account, you’re saving a sizeable chunk of change by booking these deals.

The catch
Count on whopping daily expenses once you hit the island.
