About Bahamas

Click here for the best places to stay in the Bahamas

All our Bahamas collections:

The Bahamas are a tropically perfect cluster of 700 islands famous for their dramatic history of pirates, smugglers and explorers. With so many islands you can imagine the potential. And the variety of what visitors can get up to. And imagine how many perfect beaches that means! Along with the vast choice when it comes to choosing how to enjoy the Bahamas, these islands also offer an enormous variety accommodation options. The best places to stay in the Bahamas range from over-the-top themed resorts to peaceful private islands, to guesthouses on an isolated beach.

Technically the Bahamas are coral atolls and islands rising out of the Atlantic, but most of us think of them as Caribbean perfection. And while they have the bright white sand and bright turquoise waters of the Caribbean, they have a culture all of their own. English is technically the official language, but it might not be the English you're expecting. The Bahamas is really a very independent, but very friendly, kind of a place.

If you're here for a beach break, you'll find plenty of choices, and the same goes if you're here to have a fun holiday and enjoy some dancing and some sunshine.

The Bahamas also offer every watersport known to man. And the interior of the larger islands, especially Andros, offer exciting, and, you guessed it, varied terrain for explorers - from mangrove swamps to primeval forests to palm savannahs.

If you're interested in the cannonball-rich history of the Bahamas there are numerous forts scattered about, and several museums, including a Slavery Museum and the Pirate Museum.

The Bahamas also offer the perfect backdrop against which to swim with dolphins, to learn to sail or to go parasailing.

While not a possibility for every visitor, the Bahamas are best approached by sea, but mostly so that you can enjoy the idyllic island views.

The capital, Nassau, on New Providence Island, is one of the world's busiest cruise ship ports, but you'll find ports on all the inhabited islands. And of course Nassau has an airport and is home to several of the best places to stay in the Bahamas.

The Best Places to Stay in the Bahamas

For a special occasion

  • Higgins Landing is an eco-hotel on Exuma, one of the lesser developed islands. The accommodation is in wooden cottages, right on the beach, with kitchens and large balconies - though there's also a relaxed restaurant serving locally sourced produce. This is a special hideaway.
  • Tiamo on Andros Island is a romantic beach retreat. Accommodation is in secluded cottages, some with private pools and hammocks perfect for dozing the afternoon away in.
  • Turquoise Cay on Little Exuma is a tiny five star hotel - and, you guessed, it, it's right on the beach. As well as cool, creamily decorated rooms, there's a beautiful ocean-facing infinity pool, a sunset cocktail terrace and a small spa.

For families

  • Hope Town Inn & Marina is a colonial style hotel set behind its own marina - so there's a bit of a nautical theme. Most rooms have kitchens, but the restaurant has a pretty delicious looking seafood menu. As well as being ideal for sailors, this is also a great spot for divers and snorkellers.
  • Pineapple Fields on Eleuthera Island are a collection of modern villas set around a pool and restaurant - through the villas have their own kitchens too. This is a particularly beautiful and peaceful spot.
  • The Orange Hill Beach Inn in Nassau is a relaxed and friendly 33 room inn, converted, in a very Caribbean style, from an orange plantation. There are rooms with small kitchens, but there's also a restaurant.
  • The Big Game Club is a family friendly five star resort on North Bimini, really just across the way from Miami. The decor is very traditional Caribbean - there's a lot of bamboo and palm trees. This is definitely one of the best places to stay in the Bahamas to relax and have fun with your family, and it's great value too.

For a beach break

  • Chez Pierre has just six rustic style bungalows on stilts, right on a deserted beach. There are huge balconies for relaxing on, plus a superb restaurant. And prices start from only £96 per night.
  • Coral Sands is a stunning beach front hotel set on nine beautiful acres of Harbour Island, including three miles of white sand just in front of the hotel. Rooms are elegant and modern, and there's a library, billiards room and a superb French-Bahamian restaurant for the evenings.
  • The Paradise Harbour Club is a collection of apartments just behind their own marina. There are beautiful views, there's a pool, hot tub and sun terraces, and kitchens, but no restaurant.
  • The Runaway Hill Club is a chic, beachfront hotel on Harbour Island, with modern, seaside-y, interiors. There are just eight rooms and you're right on the beach, so this is a romantic, and beautiful spot for a beach break.

For a taste of island life

  • The Staniel Cay Yacht Club is a collection of pretty, colourful beach cottages with a barefoot-boutique feel and easy marina access. There are just 14 rooms and all guests have complimentary access to a stand-up paddle board.
  • The Graycliff Hotel in Nassau is a characterful spot, right in the centre of town. Rooms are packed with antique opulence, there are two pools, beautiful gardens and sun terrace plus a gym, spa, Bahamian restaurant, wine cellar and a cigar factory.
  • The Sea Spray Resort is on Elbow Cay on Abaco. Its collection of villas has got its own marina, along with a pool, sun terrace and excellent seafood restaurant. You're also well located for diving or snorkelling excursions, and you'll often find there's live music in the bar.
