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.

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.
