Cambridge Beaches makes splash by adding units with private pools


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.
