Compass Point Beach Resort
The paint box of colors that makes Compass Point so distinctive is a legacy from the days when the resort was owned by music producer Chris Blackwell and associated with his now-defunct Compass Point Studios, where such superstars as Bob Marley, the Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton recorded. The colors, inspired by the Bahamian carnival known as Junkanoo, were the idea of iconic designer Barbara Hulanicki, whose other projects for Blackwell have included the Pink Sands on Harbour Island and GoldenEye in Jamaica. Now, Compass Point is a more typically Bahamian counterpoint to the hotels of the Atlantis megaresort, on Paradise Island, and megaresort Baha Mar, opening in 2015 on Cable Beach, just a few miles away. The rooms of the stand-alone, many-colored huts are smallish, as is the beachfront, but all the rooms are air-conditioned, with a surround-sound music system (there’s a library of CDs by artists who recorded at Compass Point), and most have sea-view balconies. Some sit on stilts for better views, and some are so close to the water that the waves crash beneath them.
Escape The Crush of Nassau... On Nassau
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.
