Opened in 1956, this hotel was the first fishing club on the island. Today, the property is owned and operated by the Lamb family, whose goal is to provide guests with a luxurious and personal experience in an atmosphere of casual elegance, dissimilar to a generic resort- complex offering.
Pompano has its own private beach, with plenty of chaise lounges, sand chairs and beach umbrellas. Or if you’re looking for something a little more active, the resort offers many water sports on-site like sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, wind- surfing or shoreline fishing. At low tide you can wade out over 400 yards in knee- to chest-deep water, along the resort’s spectacular sandbar. The shallow sandbar is the only one of its kind in Bermuda, attracting beachgoers, snorkelers, water sports enthusiasts and swimmers of all ages. So put on your mask, fins and snorkel and explore the brilliant coral reefs, which line the edge of the shallow sandbar or grab a “noodle” or air mattress and float effortlessly while basking in the warm Bermuda sunshine.
The resort’s heated oceanfront swim- ming pool overlooks their spectacular waterfront. The bright white balustrade railing set against the different shades of blue found in the ocean and sky
creates a sensational setting, with a bit of Mediterranean feel. Pompano’s pools and Jacuzzis are open 24 hours a day. Food and beverage service from the adjacent Pool Bar and Coral Reef Café is available daily.
The Pompano Beach club has the per- fect location to allow guests to easily experience what Bermuda is all about. Scuba diving, jet skiing, water skiing and Boston Whaler powerboat rentals are available at Robinson’s Marina – located only a five-minute ride from the resort. The intriguing Royal Naval Dockyard, a 75-acre historical structure, located at the island’s most northwestern point, is 15 minutes away and offers numerous sight- seeing attractions (such as the Bermuda craft market, glassblowing factory, rum cake shop and Bermuda’s Maritime Muse- um – where the popular “Dolphin Quest” operation is set up). Fort Scaur and Gibbs Hill Lighthouse are two nearby attractions that enable visitors to enjoy panoramic views of the island.
Golfers love the fact that the resort is right next to Port Royal, the island’s top- rated public golf course (with the first tee only a 500-yard walk away) and only a ten to fifteen minute drive to three more quality golf courses. Ranked among the world’s best public golf courses by Golf Digest and named Bermuda’s finest course by the New York Times, Port Royal features 18 championship holes over 6,842 manicured yards, the longest and most picturesque course in all of Bermuda. Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1970, Port Royal completed a $14.5 million renovation in preparation for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Add to
that its 300-yard oceanfront driving range and your Port Royal experience is sure to be unforgettable.
Maybe your idea of a relaxing vacation includes some activities a little less active than snorkeling and golfing. Not to worry, the Pompano Beach Club’s Serenity Spa is located on the first floor of the resort’s main clubhouse. Offering a wide variety of massage and body treatments the spa also overlooks the waterfront and features treatment rooms with oceanfront views. Services include manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing, couples treatments and special spa packages, allowing you to indulge your senses and rejuvenate your mind and body.
Pompano’s spacious guestrooms, with endless ocean views, are located in a series of small villas clustered in one and two-story pink buildings overlooking the Atlantic. The rooms at this world-class resort have tropical décor, rattan furni- ture, king-sized beds, a mini-refrigerator, bathrobes, coffee maker, a mini safe, Inter- net access and more. All rooms feature a private balcony or patio and receive twice per day maid service.
During your stay at Pompano Beach Club you have three restaurants to choose from on the property. Located adjacent to the Pool Bar, the Coral Reef Café is the ideal place to enjoy afternoon snacks or alfresco lunches overlooking the resort’s scenic waterfront. Their bistro-style restau- rant, Ocean Grill, has an ocean view with floor to ceiling windows on three sides making it one of the most dramatic dining spots on the island. And the Cedar Room Restaurant has received many accolades for both the high quality cuisine it consis- tently serves as well as its superb ocean- front location.
Bermuda is the perfect place for a honeymoon with its rich romantic history, unparalleled sophistication and back- drops of breathtaking views. One step on their shores and you’ll understand why “Feel the Love” is the island’s slogan. §
