The mid-Atlantic gem, just under two hours from major east coast cities, is erasing those winter blues and providing meeting planners and groups with the perfect destination. Come feel the love!
“Golf and Spa” Season
Bermuda’s “Golf & Spa” season continues through March and groups can either tee it up on Bermuda’s championship caliber courses or unwind at the island’s wide selection of award-winning spas…or just do both. Bermuda has more golf per square mile than anywhere else in the world and offers relaxing spas with a variety of healing and massage treatments.
Bermuda features seven courses, including an executive par-three. Characterized by spectacular scenery, including dramatic ocean vistas, as well as firm fairways and an unpredictable wind factor, the island’s courses are renowned for both their beauty and challenge. Also, they’re the only place on the island where you want to stay off the beach!
Relax…Bermuda has a diverse and unique assortment of spas and group deals at most hotels. Guests can receive a world-class massage with views of the glittering Atlantic Ocean or opt for a treatment amongst the Stalactites and Stalagmites of a 50,000 year-old cave.
Bermuda has a variety of business-class hotels and elegant cottage colonies offering a broad range of fully equipped meeting and conference facilities. Groups can enjoy state-of-the-art spaces, satellite capabilities and full Wi-Fi utilization.
In addition to providing quintessential golf and spa options, Bermuda also offers a range of group activities of cultural, historic and athletic nature. From wreck diving to horseback riding to local museums, the island has a variety of options for groups of all sizes.
Rendezvous Activity Program
After finishing group activities, individuals can explore Bermuda on their own through the Rendezvous Program; available until March 31, 2012. The mid-Atlantic island paradise is highlighting more than 400 years of history and rich culture this winter season with the debut of this free program.
