A secluded cottage resort with four private beaches, this property is set on a 30-acre peninsula between the ocean and a large bay on Bermuda's west side. The open Atlantic Ocean borders the resort's north side, and Mangrove Bay borders its south side.
The Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa offers 94 guestrooms and suites in one- and two-story pink-and-white cottages scattered over a 30-acre peninsula on Bermuda's west side. Some cottages are available only as complete units. One cottage dates from the late 17th century. Others date from the early 1800s when they housed workers for the British Royal Naval Dockyard about 3 miles north. These still bear the names of their last residents. Some cottages began being used for guests in the 1920s, and the resort grew by buying other cottages over the decades. Now, all buildings on the peninsula are part of the resort. Adjacent to a seafarers'-type tavern, is a wall festooned with the names of long-time guests.
Widely spaced on the 30-acre peninsula and separated by lawns and flowering gardens, guest cottages occupy rolling terrain, forming a pink-and-white community under coconut palms and ancient Flamboyant trees. Five pink-sand beaches are on the peninsula. The largest, Long Bay, runs 125 yards along the open Atlantic Ocean and is furnished with thatch shades and lounge chairs. Long Bay Café offers lunch and tropical drinks next to the beach. Two pools provide freshwater swimming. An indoor pool with retractable skylight roof is part of the Ocean Spa offering aromatherapy and Ayurvedic, treatments, facials treatments, manicures and pedicures, body wraps, and massages. A heated, 45-foot-square outdoor pool includes a large sundeck furnished with lounge chairs and umbrellas and offers a poolside bar. Guests enjoy complimentary access to the hotel's private beach, three outdoor tennis courts, croquet lawn, and putting green. Steps lead from the pool deck to Morning Beach on Mangrove Bay. Three days each week, the resort provides complimentary 20-minute ferry rides to downtown Hamilton for shopping, dining, and sightseeing.
