After a crazy year and a very busy Fashion Week schedule, I needed a quick getaway. I grabbed my bestie (wife and mother of 3) and we headed to a marvelous time at Cambridge Beaches. It was exactly what we needed…a quiet, well-run resort where every need was addressed without delay. Although the weather in February is traditionally iffy and it did rain our first night there, it didn't stop us from having the best weekend ever. The hotel staff, especially Shakeera, were so helpful in explaining all the amenities of the property, dining schedules, spa services, etc. And the fresh warm towel and rum swizzle was a great addition to the check-in process.
The restaurant's fare was delicious and our supervisor, Derek was so amenable, friendly and actually remembered the details of where my friend and I came from, our names, etc….and then did the same with each table he approached - very impressive. Cherline, our breakfast chef, and Perez, our waiter, as well as the rest of the waitstaff was polite, accommodating and helpful.
We were thrilled when the rain stopped so that we had the opportunity to wander about and discover the beauty of this property. The private beaches were gorgeous, although we missed two of them… the property is large, and we missed the nature maze….so much to see, we'll have to return.
The guests were definitely in the range of 30's-perhaps 70s, and a great mix of Australians, Brits and Americans who all were seeking a quiet refuge in an upscale environment. I believe we all achieved that goal. Our bartender, Singh, was such a gentleman, a gifted cocktail mixer and as all good bartenders should, told the greatest stories about his vast global travels. We were also thrilled to have access to the heated indoor pool, whirlpool and lap pool.
We also strolled off-campus into Somerset and treated ourselves to a great lunch at Salt Rock Grill. If you're craving really good sushi, this is the place.
By the way, all of the cabbies are very friendly, informative (Hello, BC!) and well-versed on the history of the island, but none were as fun and lovely to talk to as Laquitta and Randolph Doers…husband and wife team. We learned SO much about Bermuda, the people, the resorts, the sights, and much, much more…thanks to their generosity in spirit.
We will definitely be returning to Bermuda…and maybe next time, we'll take the guys in our life…they would love the pro golf course. If you like serene, quiet environments, great food, gorgeous accommodations, then Cambridge should be on your list as well.
