designed to maximise guest satisfaction by
facilitating easy access to all areas of the hotel
regardless of weather conditions, while also
being efficient for the management.
“We did not build a small hotel, but we
wanted it to be tight and we built a lot of it
underground,” said King. “The operations are
all under the hotel. You can get from every
room to every room by the staff elevators and
the tunnel. You will never see a truck pulling
up to the entry with deliveries because they
come up the front and disappear down to the
far end of the site, and then literally the golf
carts can drive under the hotel right to the
kitchen. So that was very important to us to
improve customer satisfaction and not have to
cause guests to deal with the elements—
particularly in the off-season.
The interiors of The Loren were designed to subtly
represent Bermuda with a European sophistication.
