We’re always on the lookout for romantic travel bargains but we don’t often see incredible deals in Bermuda. (There’s a good reason for that: between the great location, the high standard of living, and the great accommodations, they don’t have to offer cheap deals…everyone already wants to go there!)
We did run across a good bargain today a 9 Beaches, a very casual resort with 84 cabanas including the only over-the-water cabanas in the area. With the Fall Beach Week SuperSaver package guests can enjoy one full week at 9 Beaches for as little as $81 per person per night. The SuperSaver package is the equivalent of receiving two nights free off the regular rates, a 28% savings. The SuperSaver package includes seven nights’ lodging in an ocean-view cabana for two and complimentary hot buffet breakfast daily.
The Package: The Fall Beach Week SuperSaver can save couples as much as $916 on their next Bermuda vacation. Depending on the dates and type of cabana, rates range from $162 to $328 per cabana per night for a seven-night stay. All government occupancy tax and service charges also are included in the package price. Valid September 6 through December 17, 2007, on reservations booked before October 12.
Why It’s Dreamy: 9 Beaches is Bermuda’s only ultra-casual resort with 84 private cabanas stretched over 18 acres on the westernmost tip of Bermuda. Soft-sided cabanas stand on stilts and all have a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean. Some Cabanas even perch over the sapphire sea and Plexiglas floor panels reveal tropical fish underfoot. Ceiling fans and tropical breezes maintain comfortable temperatures, and for guests who need that extra bit of cool air, each cabana has air conditioning. All 84 Cabanas have ample windows and double doors that open onto ocean view verandas. These sturdy structures have aluminum frames and sailcloth-like material covering the aluminum frames, perfect for casual Bermudian living. While some guests have called 9 Beaches’ cabanas “luxury tents” they are more like private beach houses furnished with a queen-size bed, a small bathroom with shower and a veranda.
With 9 private beaches (even at high tide), the resort caters to active, down-to-earth individuals who are young at heart and love the great outdoors. Guests at 9 Beaches enjoy a most relaxed Bermuda atmosphere where flip-flops are required and stilettos banned.
Activities: Couples can hop a Hobie Catamaran, sailboard, or sea kayak. Bob aboard a floating lounge or relax on our aqua decks. Ripple the waves in a paddleboat or snorkel or snuba — a snorkeling-scuba hybrid — to the wreck of the HMS Vixen, a small, 1860s twin-screwed ironclad that is just off the coast of one of the 9 beaches. More adventuresome guests can skim the surface on kite boards, following lessons from instructors certified by the International Kite Boarding Association. Experience a thrill ride on our unique tow-able “Fly Fish.” Explore Bermuda’s beautiful coral reefs on the Reef Comber, our glass bottom boat. The cruise goes out 6 miles off Bermuda to the Reef Flats, extremely shallow waters with amazing coral and marine life. For an even closer look, snorkeling equipment is provided, as well.
If you absolutely have to check in at home, you’ll find Wi-Fi over various hot spots around the resort. There’s an Internet station in Centre Stage for use free of charge. All guests also receive a complimentary Bermuda cell phone (one per cabana) for free local calls and for international calls (fees apply). Important numbers such as the Concierge, a la Carte food & beverage service and our Duty Manager– are pre-programmed. iPods with music to fit just about every taste also are available.
