The island of Nassau in The Bahamas may be best known for it's monstrous resorts like Atlantis, but you actually can escape the worst of it without hopping a plane to the Out Islands.
Just head west to Compass Point Beach Resort. Once owned by Chris Blackwell of Bob Marley/Island Records fame. The property was paired with Blackwell’s Compass Point Recording Studio, located directly across the street, to create an exclusive retreat for music industry jet-setters, and the like.
Now, an ownership change later, Compass Point still shines as the top choice for uncommon accommodations in Nassau.
