No. 3 Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island (Nassau), Bahamas
Situated on 13 verdant acres dotted with tropical gardens (a Zen garden among them) and seven pools, Sandals' exclusive, couples-only escape on New Providence Island is renowned for its secluded setting and expansive, oceanfront suites. The resort, stomping grounds of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in the 1940's, continues to maintain its royal pedigree, with Rolls Royce car service for select suites, personal butlers, and a private, off-shore island. Inside, European sensibility blends—with surprising ease—with Caribbean cool: travertine tiled floors, Roman tubs, and Carrera marble countertops add contrast to frescoed ceilings and mahogany accents. The luxe factor continues in The Red Lane®
Spa, where the West Indian Massage incorporates rainforest scents, warm river stones, and white-sand exfoliation.
