The DunmoreFrom a members-only beach club in the 1960s, the Dunmore, on Harbour Island, has evolved into a 16-room boutique hotel whose spirit and decor evoke that era. Interior designer Amanda Lindroth oversaw a major renovation when the hotel’s current owners bought it in 2010. Wicker and rattan furniture, patterned prints, and spaces that are as much outdoors as indoors create a look that is somewhere between late British colonial and timeless Bahamian. Although it sits on Pink Sands Beach, a notable upgrade was the addition of a pool with an airy pavilion that only adds to the Dunmore’s reputation as a place of amiable gathering. Another upgrade was having Cindy Hutson, one of the region’s rising culinary stars, put her imprint on a menu that ranges from the expected, such as seared yellowfin tuna and crispy red snapper, to the unexpected, such as oxtail ravioli.

A perfect beach counterpart to my other favorite place on Harbour Island (The Landing) is The Dunmore. I immediately felt home. The Dunmore is relaxed, low key and true to its surroundings. They only have 16 cottages, all well designed, in a generous, authentic, low-key island style. Only 'draw-back'...because of their small size, they do get booked up quickly.

Tropical Escape on Harbour Island
Located on Harbour Island, just off the coast of Eleuthera, Bahamas, the Dunmore is truly a place to get away from it all. Made up of beach villas and a private beach this property is all about privacy and luxury. Even though the main town is a short golf cart ride away, the restaurant at the Dunmore is excellent and well worth a quiet night in. Unlike some other beach hotels, I didn't feel like a number of just another tourist. The hotel is intimate and after a couple of days I felt like a resident, a remarkable achievement for any hotel.
