Founded at the start of the '60s, this timeless haunt of the rich and famous is closely linked to local legend. Nestled on the north shore of Paradise Island, an island bordered by sumptuous beaches that can be reached via the city-center of Nassau, the five-star hotel has notably served as a backdrop for the blockbuster hit Casino Royale and the Scandal series.
Just a two-hour plane ride from Miami, the hotel attracts the business' best that pass through Florida. And we understand why: enriched with an irresistible retro charm, this lush greenery is located on one of the most idyllic white sand beaches in the area.
A mile away from huge spring-breaker resorts such as Atlantis on the nearby coastline, this tranquil Olympian hotel includes one of the most popular golf courses in the area. It's difficult to leave its vast suites, given their view of the translucent waters and unreal sunsets that make for a beautiful Instagram post.
What We Love
The relaxed sophistication of the Dune restaurant, run by Michelin star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Perched above the azure waters of the ocean, this spot on the waterfront offers fine cuisine at the crossroads of French terroir and the four corners of Asia. On the menu is exceptional seafood—delicious tuna tartare with Japanese ginger marinade, crispy sushi with a soy glaze and the freshly caught lobster with plantains—as well as several choices for those with a taste for anything off the barbeque.
The sublime Balinese-inspired spa, perfect for relaxing after a day in the sun. A favorite for the massage with coconut poultices, exotic olfactory and concentrated vitamins K and E which sublimates a tan; as well as the Bahamas Rhythm Massage, a beautiful escape to the heart of the local culture that reconciles body and mind.
The three-bedroom Villa Residence, a grandiose 409-square-meter space with its own private pool and round-the-clock privacy.
The wide variety of healthy options available for breakfast like organic yogurt and granola; an egg white omelet with tomato and vegetable salad; crushed avocado served with poached eggs, harissa and jalapeño; and the chia pudding with seasonal fruits.
