Lots going on in the world of travel and tourism today so get out your bowls and spoons—it’s time for some Bermuda soup. First up big news from NBC Sports, which announced on Friday that it will be visiting the island at the end of the month to shoot a new show called Global Golf Adventure at Port Royal Golf Course. According to the Bermuda Sun, each show will highlight a unique destination for active golf travelers and will include an interview with a celebrity guest. Considering Port Royal is again home to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, I couldn’t think of a better choice (to watch Bermuda in all of its golfing glory, tune in to NBC on May 8 at 1:30 EST). From Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa comes a tempting hotel deal: The luxurious west end retreat has just given guests an extra month of its special “fourth night free” deal. Travelers booking at least a four-night stay for travel good through April 30, will get—you guessed it—their fourth night free, in addition to complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea daily. Considering rooms in April start from $575 a night, it’s a whopper of a deal (to get the special rate use booking code CBBDA4). Been to London recently? If so, then you’ve probably spotted a handful of bright pink taxis driving around town with the slogan “Feel the Love” painted on the doors—basically the Department of Tourism’s latest and greatest effort to spread the word about Bermuda. I for one think it’s a fantastic idea: Cab drivers are among the world’s greatest ambassadors and with direct flights on British Airways from London Gatwick—just a six-hour hop to Bermuda—I’m guessing the island will be seeing a generous uptick in UK arrivals. Just think, that could be you walking arm-in-arm on Horseshoe Bay Beach. Feel the love, yall.
