The Best Hotels in the Bahamas
Collected by AFAR Editors, AFAR Staff
The best hotels in the Bahamas make it easy for you to spend less time worrying about where to stay, and more time plotting your next beach adventure. Here, you’ll find some of the finest boutique hotels and luxury resorts in the Caribbean, from the humble (a seaside cabana with views to swoon over) to the plush (think private island escape).
Nassau, The Bahamas
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,...
Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
On Harbour Island, near the northern end of Eleuthera, the Coral Sands is one of the fortunate few hotels to sit directly on Pink Sands Beach, declared one of the prettiest beaches in the Bahamas, if not the world. Opened in 1968, the hotel has...
One Baha Mar Boulevard Nassau N.P, Nassau, The Bahamas
After years of on-again, off-again setbacks, the Baha Mar mega-resort officially debuted in summer 2017 with the opening of the 1,800-room Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, the first of three hotels on the thousand-acre beachfront development. Not since the...
West Hill Street Nassau N.P, Nassau, The Bahamas
As its official name suggests, the 20-room Graycliff is much more than a hotel. In fact, if everything were fitted in, it would be the Graycliff Hotel, Restaurant, Cigar Company, Culinary Academy, Coffee Producer, Chocolatier, and Seller of...
Chapel Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
Not every celebrity who visits Harbour Island stays at the Pink Sands Hotel. Bill Gates, for instance, has his own home on the island. But Keith Richards has checked in here, as have Martha Stewart and Kate Moss. Ever since it opened in the 1950s,...
Bay Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
A little beauty whose only shortcoming, in some eyes, is that it does not sit on Pink Sands Beach, the Rock House Hotel & Restaurant was a labor of love of the late Wallace Tutt, a renovator and interior designer to the stars who was best...
A 600-suite hotel within a hotel, the Cove is the most luxurious and adult-friendly of the room towers at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. Kids aren’t banned, but the vibe is definitely grown-up. Notice this most strikingly at the...
27122 Goal Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
From 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...
Paradise Beach Dr, Suite 19, Paradise Island, The Bahamas
Opened in 2007, the Reef is one of the two newer room towers at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. Yet unlike the adult-oriented Cove, the Reef is family-friendly. The style is condo-residential, with kitchenettes that better help mom and dad...
Unnamed Road, The Bahamas
It is not quite accurate to say that this 13-room beachfront property, on sparsely populated South Andros Island, is off the beaten path. True, no one can arrive by road, because there isn’t one. And the only neighbors are the wild denizens...
One S Ocean Rd, Nassau, The Bahamas
When old money comes to Nassau's Paradise Island, The Ocean Club is where it prefers to stay. That's the way things have been since 1962, when the serenely posh resort opened along a dazzling stretch of sand known as Cabbage Beach. The 105-room...
