If you’ve been inspired by the amazing coverage of beautiful Bermuda thanks to the 35th America’s Cup, let us suggest a sublime spot to stay on this stunning island…Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa.
Super-romantic and stylishly appointed, this adult-only resort is located on its own private peninsula with some four private beaches. A haven for couples, this is Bermuda’s only child-free resort, meaning you’ll enjoy quiet relaxation in a haven of tranquillity.
The island itself is an incredible holiday destination, and just 7 ½ hours direct flight from London. Long stretches of pink sand, rocky secluded coves and crystal clear waves make the scenery on this island among the region’s best, with its inshore, subterranean caves and deep-water lagoons being outstanding settings for hiking or snorkelling. Surrounded by turquoise waters and coral reef, and boasting interiors covered in lush green vegetation, Bermuda has many diverse experiences to offer visitors who love to explore; from underground caves to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, shipwreck diving to botanical gardens.
Although often classed as being in the Caribbean, Bermuda is actually a collection of 181 islands much further north, set in the Atlantic Ocean, just a few hours’ flight from the eastern cities of the USA. You’ll be welcomed into this idyll by a nation proud to showcase their islands’ many attributes and keen to maintain their reputation as one of the friendliest peoples on the planet. The sense of British influence here is charming and reflected in the country’s architecture and historical sights, yet, thankfully, without the inclement weather of the UK!
Renowned as a paradise for golfers, Bermuda boasts more stunning courses per capita than any other destination in the world! Cambridge Beaches itself has its own putting green, so fans of the fairways can warm up before heading to one of the six courses which are all less than an hour’s transfer from the luxury hotel. What’s more, guests who stay for three nights or more will receive a complimentary round of golf at either Belmont Hills or Port Royal, two of Bermuda’s premier golf courses.
The luxury resort is also just a 10-minute drive from the Royal Naval Dockyard & National Museum; one of the island’s top tourist attractions for sight-seeing and shopping. A great way to see this, and numerous other attractions, is by hiring one of the resort’s scooters! With a maximum speed limit on the island of 23mph you needn’t worry about being experienced on two wheels!
Bermudian cuisine is a diverse mix of flavours and influences from around the world, and no trip to the island is complete without sampling some of the local delicacies. At Cambridge Beaches Resort, guests can indulge themselves with fine fare at some three restaurants: the highly-acclaimed and utterly elegant Tamarisk Restaurant & Terrace, award-winning alfresco eatery Breezes, and the poolside chilled-out lounge Shutters. Be sure to sample the classic Bermuda fish chowder, Baked Seasonal Local Spiny Lobster on the Whole or Half Shell Filled & Gratinated with Baby Shrimp Cheddar Cheese Sauce and the Cambridge Splash cocktail for a real flavour of the islands. Naturally, seafood is the star of Bermudian cuisine, but Breezes restaurant’s signature CB Banana Split with Spiced Chocolate Sauce, Gosling’s Black Rum with Navel Orange Reduction, and a drizzle of Bermuda Honey Sweetened Raspberry Coulis is the perfect end to any meal and a local speciality not to be missed.
In the resort’s 30 acres you’ll discover lush, tropical gardens which wend their way to four white sand beaches and hidden coves; Long Bay Beach, Turtle Cove Beach, Morning Beach and Pegem Beach. And as the media coverage of the America’s Cup has showcased, the coast is truly exceptional, a myriad of incredible blues and inviting waters. In fact, Cambridge Beaches is an excellent hotel choice for the watersports enthusiasts, offering adventurous guests an onsite marina that can provide jet skis, sail and motor boats, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and more!
Bermuda is also home to some of the world’s most spectacular spas in which to relax, unwind and be pampered and you’ll find a 5* spa setting at Cambridge Beaches. The Ocean Spa possesses the finest products from Phytomer of St. Malo, Aromatherapy Associates, and Spa Ritual Nail Care, and the Aquarian Baths are a particular highlight of the indulgent facility.
If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying your honeymoon at Cambridge Beaches then ask your wedding guests to club together to spoil you with one or more of the range of romantic treats that can be enjoyed. At the Ocean Spa there is the Couples Sensual Awakening which includes a massage and exfoliating salt scrub. Or how about a private candlelit dinner on the beach? The location offers a stunning view, and you and your other half will dine on a personalised 4-course menu, washed down with champagne and with a butler on hand to see to your every whim! Our Concierge team can pre-arrange these before you travel.
