Guests have another reason to choose Cambridge Beaches Hotel: each room will soon feature contemporary artwork by local artists. The hotel’s interior design renovation captures the
spirit of the world traveler, with objects of interest including photographs and prints by some of Bermuda’s well-known artists.
Like other hotel projects led by Phil Hospod, Founder/ CEO of Dovetail Co. and its subsidiary Cambridge Beaches, artwork plays an important role in the experience crafted for the guest.
“We believe art has the potential to elevate guest experience while promoting local stories and artists in a meaningful way. It has been a pleasure working with Lisa to introduce a
collection of Bermudian artists to the guests of Cambridge Beaches.”
Lisa Howie, owner of Black Pony Gallery, was delighted to provide curatorial direction, presenting a wide range of local artist’s portfolios to choose from. “The dominant décor at Cambridge is really the environment itself, the water views and beach scenes are remarkable.
Now when the guest comes in for some respite from the natural beauty, they encounter further compelling scenes in the artwork and overall décor. The reimagined rooms feel so welcoming and home-like as a result.”
After months of deliberation, Phil and his team selected artwork by: Meredith Andrews, Nhuri Bashir, James Cooper, Graham Foster, Jayde Gibbons, Sabriyya Harvey and Gherdai Hassell. At
the hotel’s Open House on September 15th many locals were excited to see the extent of the local artist collection.
