Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa
The 94-room Cambridge beaches may be the preppiest, most conservative place on the island (you’d swear you were at a country club), but the resort, on 30 acres of Bermuda’s remote west end, does think outside the box: it’s the only one that has accommodations with dedicated pools. Each of the three freestanding new suites overlooks the Atlantic and includes a bedroom, a sitting room, a dressing room, a whirlpool tub set before a picture window, a six-head shower stall with an independent sound system—plus an infinity-edge plunge pool. Coffered ceilings, cutting-garden chintz, and gourd lamps on mahogany night tables assure the old guard that Cambridge hasn’t gone off the deep end.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
