“A secluded boutique resort that can only be reached by boat or seaplane. Its eleven luxury eco villas feature modern decor with a hint at Caribbean style in the form of plenty of blue and white hues, bleached wood and thatched roofs. All materials are sustainably sourced. Add to this stylish stone bathrooms and you have a designer's dream. Doors open onto private pools and a large veranda including hammocks. A reminder that you're in paradise. There is another large pool with sea views and your own private beach: no shortage of spaces to sun worship. Dine on fresh Caribbean fusion cuisine, with an emphasis on seafood dishes or enjoy aperitifs and watch the sunset out on the terrace. Tiamo has an entire fleet of boats to choose from. Head out on the serene, azure blue waters of the Southern Bite, whilst the scuba diving between Andros and Nassau is phenomenal. If you're not certified there are qualified instructors. A true island paradise. ”
