The Reefs is a small, luxury Bermuda hotel that’s nestled on a cliff overlooking its own private beach. It features consistently in the awards pages of publications such as Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. If you’re still not convinced you should stay here then carry on reading.
The Reefs offers its guests a good selection of rooms. Those seeking a little more privacy can choose from several cottages located away from the main buildings. While accommodations vary they all come with ocean views, air conditioning, separate bathroom, refrigerator, data port, safe, coffee maker, iron and hairdryer. Complimentary beverages await your arrival and newspapers are delivered daily.
The Reefs offers a multitude of dining options. There’s indoor dining at Grill 56 or al fresco at the Ocean Echo Terrace and Coconuts beach bar and restaurant. In the summer, entertainment from local artists is provided every evening. Guests seeking more variety can take advantage of the hotel’s dine-around program. Providing space is available, visitors can take dinner at other hotels (Cambridge Beaches and Pompano Beach Club).
The hotel’s freshwater infinity pool gives you the feeling that you are in the ocean. All that’s missing is the fish. If you crave the real thing, the Reefs has its own private beach where snorkeling and kayaking equipment can be rented. Landlubbers can use one of the hotel’s two tennis courts, fitness centre or shuffleboard. After all that exercise you may need to relax with a Thai massage in the hotel’s spa, La Serena.
