Cambridge Beaches features new look


SOMERSET, Bermuda -- Located on a 25-acre peninsula here, the Cambridge Beaches resort re-opened April 1 with a new look and a new manager.

Following a four-month, $9 million renovation, the property refurbished its cottage-style rooms, restaurant and the reception area.

The resort's exterior received a fresh coat of paint and added new plumbing, underground electrical wiring and landscaping.

"The $9 million going in this year has ensured that we can continue to hold our heads up with pride among the top resorts in the world," said Michael Winfield, Cambridge Beaches president.

Cambridge Beaches' renovation included fresh paint for the buildings' exteriors. Also part of the overall renovation project, 18 new units are to be available by August, bringing the property's total rooms inventory to 92. The new units will include 12 deluxe rooms and six Cambridge suites, the property's highest room category.

Cambridge Beaches offers five gardenview rooms, five waterview, 53 deluxe, five suites, 20 Cambridge suites and Windswept and Pegem, houses that can accommodate up to four people each.

Among on-site amenities are five beaches, an indoor and outdoor pool, spa and fitness facilities, tennis courts, a croquet lawn and putting green.

According to a spokeswoman, Winfield thought this winter's renovation was consistent with the property's vision of maintaining a high level of quality.

"That vision has been assisted by many of our premier agents such as Valerie Wilson [of Valerie Wilson Travel] and others," the spokeswoman added.

Cambridge Beaches' new manager is Romana Heeg-Sa, whose hotel industry background spans almost 20 years and includes positions with Hotel Inter-Continental in South America, Germany and the U.S.

Rates at the property, effective through Oct. 30, range from $440 per night, double, for gardenview accommodations to $715 in a Cambridge suite.

Rates include breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner for two.
