Touted as one of the "10 best eco-chic resorts", Bermuda's 9 Beaches has made the cover of another US travel magazine.

One of the simply decorated over-water cabanas with its glass window in the floor is featured on the front of Coastal Living's April issue.

With more photos inside, the article says: "Bermuda is usually formal, but there's no need for evening dress at this casual outpost."

Touted as one of the "10 best eco-chic resorts", Bermuda's 9 Beaches has made the cover of another US travel magazine.

One of the simply decorated over-water cabanas with its glass window in the floor is featured on the front of Coastal Living's April issue.

With more photos inside, the article says: "Bermuda is usually formal, but there's no need for evening dress at this casual outpost."

The writer says part of the resort's "eco-cred" is that "ocean breezes make using air-conditioning unnecessary, so your carbon footprint practically disappears."

The article says 9 Beaches' restaurant Hi Tide, "turns out some of the best meals on the Island".

But even in this economy, staying at the 84-cabana lux-casual resort isn't cheap. The article notes rates this season are from $280, with the six over-water cabanas going for just under $500 a night.

That rate does include daily breakfast. And if your budget can manage five nights, you get a sixth for free as part of a special promotion.

After a rocky start, 9 Beaches is now entering its fifth season in Bermuda.

It's owned by Island Resort Collection Sandys Ltd., headed by Russell Urban, Mike Mellow, Tom Chiders, David Dodwell and a number of private investors.

Other resorts featured in the article include California's Tree Bones Resort, Nicaragua's Morgan's Rock Hacienda & Eco-Lodge and Turkey's Yediburunlar Lighthouse on the Med.
