Hotels in Bahamas
Bahamas hotels offer colorful accommodations right at or near the water’s edge. With everything from beach cottages to luxury resorts, hotels in the Bahamas provide something for every traveler to enjoy, whether on business or for pleasure. Pink Sands Resort has twenty-five pastel-colored private cottages with views of the pink sand coastline and their own patios at this luxury getaway in Harbour Island. The resort also has activities guaranteed to make your time on the island worthwhile, like fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. Green Turtle Club Resort and Marina is situated in the private Green Turtle Cay, and offers waterfront rooms with private docks. The accommodations are only a 10-minute walk from the beach. The Club Restaurant also serves Caribbean cuisine. Pelican Bay at Lucaya is a 4 star spot and is one of the best hotels in the Bahamas. It is in the heart of Grand Bahama Island, and sports palm trees and Bahamian architecture. With a casino, the Port Lucaya Marketplace, and the caves of Lucayan National Park nearby, there is always something new to discover.
Next to a dockside fish clean-and-grill station conveniently positioned where harmless reef sharks circle for scraps, this marina is the jumping-off point for exploring the northern half of the Exumas and, as the name implies, a favorite anchorage for mariners.
The short ferry ride from neighboring Andros reveals nothing of this private 96-acre barrier island but thick stands of mangrove trees. Secluded Kamalame Cay is the perfect stage for an updated Robinson Crusoe fantasy.
The 12-room Landing has a decidedly patrician vibe. The hotel was conceived by Tracy Barry (whose mother was the first-ever Miss Bahamas) and Toby Tyler, a Sydney restaurateur.
Feast on conch and spend your days tooling from beach to beach—all empty, all extraordinary.
Make all the Rasta jokes you want; there’s nothing half-baked about this brand-new boutique resort (which officially opens in July 2008).
When most people hear “Grand Bahama Island” they picture bustling, touristy Freeport. However, 26 miles away from the frenetic crowds is the quiet and relaxed Bahamanian West End.
The name Eleuthera comes from the Greek word for freedom—and this 80-acre property, just a stone’s throw from Governor’s Harbour, strives to embody the casual, carefree spirit of its home island.
This cheerful little compound of candy-colored beachfront cabanas is the least touristy feeling resort in Nassau/New Providence.
Located on the island’s northern end, all 26 rooms open onto expansive porches.
The hulking, coral-pink fantasy castle of the Bahamas’ only megaresort is visible from miles away (by land or sea); the towers don’t just dominate the Bahamian skyline, they are the skyline.
Musha Cay is a private resort on the otherwise uninhabited Islands of Copperfield Bay, owned by famed illusionist David Copperfield. Surrounded by tropical jungle, the 150-acre property is rented to one party at a time and accommodates up to 24 visitors.
Before this luxurious property arrived in the laid-back Exumas in 2004, the only lodging options were modest mom-and-pop operations.
The oldest and most vaunted resort on Harbour Island (it was first opened by entrepreneur/hotelier J. Allen Malcolm in 1951), the aptly named Pink Sands occupies an enviable spot on Briland’s gorgeous eastern beach.
The Grand Lucayan, one of the Bahamas' largest resorts, presents over 1,000 guest rooms and suites with signature Heavenly Beds and Heavenly Baths. The resort sprawls along seven miles of sandy Lucayan beach and offers two world-class Dick Wilson and Robert Trent Jones golf courses.
