Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa, set on a 20-acre peninsula in Bermuda's West End, has been acquired by U.S.-based hospitality company Dovetail + Co.
The hotel was established 90 years ago as the destination's first cottage-style accommodations. Some buildings date to the 1600s, shortly after the uninhabited island was discovered in 1609. The property has changed hands only four times since the late 1660s.
Cambridge Beaches today includes 86 suites with private outdoor spaces and select plunge pools, four beaches, an infinity-edge waterfront pool, five acres of ornamental gardens, a putting green, croquet lawn, a marina and watersports hub and a spa and fitness center.
Dining choices include a historic dockside tavern, beachfront and poolside restaurants and bars.
"Cambridge Beaches is a magical place steeped in Bermuda's history," said Phil Hospod, founder and CEO of Dovetail + Co. "We are honored to be the new stewards of this resort and want to build on the traditions that guests have come to love."
A wall with the names of all repeat guests reveals how beloved the property is: the standing record is 150 lifetime visits.
Hospod plans to update guestrooms and public spaces. "The property has an established reputation as an authentic island retreat offering gracious hospitality. We want to refine it," he said.
Dovetail + Co.'s portfolio includes the Urban Cowboy Lodge in the Catskills, the Wayfinder Hotel in Newport, RI, a project under development in New York City and another in Hawaii.
