The Cambria Hotel Offers a Taste of Luxury in Rehoboth

The hotel recently opened its doors, offering luxuries like cabanas and a tiki bar to Rehoboth visitors. The catch? You won't see the beach.

The first Cambria Hotel in the First State is full of surprises.

Of late, the beach area’s hospitality industry has experienced a growth spurt. Projects from the past few years include Home2Suites by Hilton and Hyatt House, both in Lewes. In addition, more hotels are planned for downtown Rehoboth.

But there is nothing quite like the brand-new Cambria Hotel, which recently opened in Rehoboth.

The four-story property defines luxury, complete with a pristine outdoor pool with cabanas and a tiki bar. The Cambria also boasts a heated indoor pool, hot tub spa and fully equipped fitness center.

The more than 100 guestrooms boast little luxuries like premium linens, spa-like bathrooms, locally inspired artwork and more. Some rooms include private balconies overlooking a lush, landscaped property and pool.

Notably, Delaware’s first Cambria is not on the ocean—it’s not even within walking distance. The 3.5-acre site is on Route 24 between Delaware Eye Institute and Beebe Healthcare’s Rehoboth campus.

The distance doesn’t concern Tauhid Islam of Pinnacle Hospitality, the hotel’s developer. It took him five years to find a suitable parcel for an upscale hotel with all the amenities. “It’s not easy,” the CEO acknowledges. “This was just the right size.”

In a speech at the grand opening event, Islam explained that his vision was to fulfill the ever-changing and expanding desires of tourists to the Rehoboth Beach area. With pools and dining on-site and the beach just a short drive away, guests get the best of both worlds. There’s ample opportunity to visit a bustling boardwalk during the day and return to the serene respite to savor a poolside cocktail in the evening.

The hotel is ready to serve visitors to Lewes, Rehoboth and Dewey. Guests need not leave the hotel to wine and dine; Veranda Restaurant and Bar serves modern Mediterranean-inspired fare on-site. The bar provides summer cocktails and a selection of local beers on draft from breweries like Dogfish Head, Dewey Beer Co. and more.

With nearly 4,000 square feet of meeting space, the property also appeals to event planners. The outdoor event area can accommodate up 400 guests, with gazebos and other scenic spots for ceremonies.

The new site is not Pinnacle Hospitality’s first Cambria Hotel; the company has two in Ocean City, Maryland.
