Every island has a variety of hotels that offer excellent accommodations with modern, as well as luxurious amenities. The most popular islands are Grand Bahama Island, that’s where Freeport and Lucaya are located, and New Providence Island; Nassau and Paradise Island are the main attractions. If you want to get away from the crowds visit the outer islands, which include: Andros, Acklins, Abaco, Bimini, Cat Island, Exumas, Eleuthera, Inaguas, San Salvador, Mayaguana, Abaco and the Berry Islands.
Here are a few of our favorite places to stay: In Nassau the hotels are grouped in three areas: downtown, Paradise Island and Cable Beach.
The Sandals Royal Bahamian is a luxury hotel on Cable Beach, and is well worth the money. The food, as well as the service, is excellent. The Baha Mar has been completely renovated. It is a 3,500 giant and the largest investment property in the Bahamas. You can get a reasonable vacation package there, especially if you want to visit off season. In downtown Nassau, The Graycliff Hotel is an 18th century private home that reeks with old world charm and grace. That’s where the Duke and Duchess of Windsor stay and the Beatles and Winston Churchill were guests there as well. The British Colonial Hilton is another old world establishment that’s worth the money. There are nine resorts on Paradise Island and they can be expensive. The most economically hotel is the Sivananda Ashram Retreat, which offers guest rooms, as well as tents. Yoga classes start at 6am and meditation is mandatory, so guests can experience another reality while they get a suntan.
Atlantis is the place to see and be seen. There are five different towers in the complex and each one falls into a different price category. If you want to soak up the sun with celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Tommy Lee Jones or Nick Lachey, Atlantis is the place to stay.
