Wequassett Resort & Golf Club

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

Cape Cod’s customary clapboard meets chic styling at Wequassett Resort And Golf Club. One of the few retreats to gain Forbes Travel Guide’s sought-after 5 stars, and the Cape’s only member of the luxury club Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, a stay here is something very special. You’ll find Cape Cod’s natural beauty at its very best, with two beaches, flowering meadows, salt marshes and woods, and endless views from Pleasant Bay into the Atlantic. But you also get some decidedly manmade beauties too, like Adirondack chairs around fire pits, all manner of water sports and boating diversions, tennis, exclusive access to the neighbouring golf club, an incredible infinity pool and lap pool, a pirate ship and aqua playground, and fabulous food in the form of four dining experiences, from casual deck dinners to gourmet waterfront meals.

Was there last week for a 2 day conference. Quiet off season but the property delivered both a great accommodation and great service. Thank you for a successful strategy session! Looking forward to a return visit “in season”!

We (my best friend an me, two ladies) stayed there for a long weekend and experienced one of the most affectionate and friendliest services ever. Especially Otis and Dave cared about us. When we arrived we were directly welcomed by them with a handshake, they showed us the resort and helped us with the luggage. We got so many good recommendations for food, bars (we love the Squire) and sightseeing. Additionally we got free shuttles to downtown Chatham by them and back so we really felt safe all the time. The room was cozy and had a nice view. We really enjoyed the resort and can really recommend the restaurant- we went there for breakfast every morning. Especially the lobster eggs benedict were so tasty. On our way back from Chatham with the SUV shuttle we mentioned that we tried to get an eggnog at a bar but got non. 15 minutes later we were surprised with 2 eggnogs served to our room as a special greeting. This made our stay unique and perfect. We will definitely come back and home to meet your friendly staff again! Read less

Really enjoyed our stay. Very high-end service, engaged staff. The restaurants (both casual and formal) were top-notch - exceeded expectations. First room we were allocated was musty and we were quickly upgraded to a newly renovated room.

Our final stop after touring in New England, and it really was a great place to stay. The staff were all so helpful, friendly and efficient. There was a complimentary chauffeur service available to take us to restaurants in Chatham, a few miles away, which was very much appreciated. Our room was lovely - very spacious (2 queen size beds and still lots of room), warm (which is often not the case in a hotel room) and with really comfortable beds. We couldn't get the shower to work on our first day and when we rang for help, someone was there within 3/4 minutes. We didn't eat in the hotel, though did have drinks in the bar and the barman (Victor) was really friendly. Unfortunately, while there, we had a sub-tropical storm which meant that due to the wind and rain, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket were cancelled, which was a big disappointment. However, it was so good to be able to go out in the car to see other places during the day and have a lovely, comfortable room to come back to. The weather conditions also prevented us from being able to enjoy the outside areas at the hotel, which was a shame, but despite the weather we really enjoyed our stay at Wequassett. Read less

The Wequasset Resort and Golf Club is first class and we love dining in all their restaurants. This occasion was a family dinner. Twenty-Eight Atlantic is a true Four-Star, Four-Diamond premier dining experience. This is the resort’s signature restaurant and enjoys the highest ratings on Cape Cod from Forbes, AAA and Zagat. There is a dress code in place of jacket and dress pants for men and dress or pants for ladies. The dining room is beautifully appointed and the service is four star! Everything was perfect from being welcomed to the restaurant to confirm our reservation. to the wonderful waitstaff. We were seated by the windows with a beautiful view. Everyone loved their entrees which were surf and turf and assorted seafood dishes. The experience at the Wequassett was a true four star! Read less
