Cambridge Beaches makes splash by adding units with private pools By Barbara Redding / February 10, 2006 Share 1 -- SOMERSET, Bermuda -- To stay ahead in Bermudas small but competitive hotel market, something new is a must. That something for Cambridge Beaches is a cottage with an infinity-edge plunge pool. The property added the islands first such suite with a private pool last June, and it has proved such a hot ticket that two more units are set to open this summer, said Michael Winfield, the resorts president and CEO.We really are very pleased with the demand, Winfield said. Its a suite for the romantics of any age.After staying at a resort in Bali, where Winfield saw how popular private plunge-pool units were, he and his Cambridge Beaches team discussed and researched implementation, and then took the plunge, he said.The cottage has one bedroom, a separate dressing room and a sitting area with a flat-screen TV and sound system. The bath has a whirlpool tub under a picture window offering ocean views, a shower with six showerheads and its own sound system.Cambridge Beaches is Bermudas original cottage colony, comprising 94 individually decorated cottage rooms and suites on a 30-acre peninsula.Guests can pursue a variety of activities, from water sports to croquet and tennis. The resort has five private beaches and an extensive spa/wellness program.As for whats next, Winfield said growth at Cambridge Beaches never stops.We have reinvested more, certainly on a per-room basis, than any hotel I know, and that will continue, he said. The resort is also renovating its outdoor pool and refurbishing some cottages.For more information, phone (800) 468-7300 or visit www.cambridgebeaches.com.To contact the reporter who wrote this article, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
