Another pleasure-packed destination may not be as well-recognized, although it dates to the 1950s. Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook, Connecticut is a secret zealously fervent to explode. Says Anthony Amendola, hotel manager for Water’s Edge,“We are a full-service resort on the beach with amenities not found anywhere nearby. Most people think they have to drive through Connecticut to get to the beach,” he chuckles. “Some plan- ners simply don’t have Water’s Edge on their radar yet.”


Amendola and his staff are dedicated to adjusting those radar blips and bringing this magnificent resort to the top of every list on everymeeting planner’s desk in the region. The 26-acre resort offers 101 guest rooms and 69 villas. In addition to a luxu- rious spa, there are swimming pools (indoor and out),a fully equipped fitness center, a lounge featuring live entertain- ment, tennis courts and multiple ball- rooms and terraces.


Anyone scheduling a meeting or special occasion celebration appreciates the cre- ativity presented by Water’s Edge event planners. Everything they need or dream about is possible. Menus from simple to lavish, state-of-the-art equipment, on site technicians, a florist and more are a phone call or short drive away. This treasure presents a flawless opportunity waiting to happen.


“A big positive,” points out Amendola,“is year-round accessibility. Unlike many beachfront communities, we don’t shut


down for the winter. We have four restaurants, two tennis courts, eight treat- ment rooms in our spa and breathtaking views. Because our early entertainers were quite notable,we feature very popu- lar tribute acts, a nice diversion after a long day of meetings or standing on your feet at a trade exposition. There is 15,000- square feet allowing us to accommodate two people or up to 100 in most areas. Perhaps most critical for planners is our closeness to New York, Philadelphia, Boston andWashington,DC. Drive or take the train; it’s a pleasant trip! When you arrive, it’s even more pleasant.”


As these destinations dance before you, imagine that next meeting, special event or promotional expo set in a resort with all services and amenities included. Select one of these sites and punctuate your plans with the excitement that inspires productivity.
