To many, Bermuda is the “Jewel of the Atlantic.” With pink sandy beaches, limestone cliffs and turquoise-colored water, it makes for the perfect vacation getaway. Because the sun and Gulf warm the atmosphere, Bermuda is free from the dreaded tropical heat. A rich and diverse culture is evident with West Africa and West Indies slave ancestors, English colonialists, Irish rovers and Portuguese seafarers. You can experience all that Bermuda has to offer when you book your stay at The Reefs Resort & Club.
Many accommodations are available as you plan your stay. The most ideal accommodations for resort vacations are the rooms and suites. With many options available, all offer fantastic views. The first option is the Poolside Guest Room that includes private patios or balconies, a king-sized bed and seating area in front of the sliding glass doors. Each Poolside Guest Room overlooks the infinity-edge swimming pool and Atlantic Ocean. The next option is the Cliffside Guest Room.
