Search the best hotels in Bahamas
The Bahamas are a tropically perfect archipelago of 700 islands, or 2,000+ if you count the small coral cays as well. The Bahamian islands are mostly known for being a Caribbean paradise of white, sandy beaches and idyllic resorts, and for their dramatic history, packed with pirates, smugglers and explorers. But you’ll see from our list of the best places to stay in the Bahamas, that these gorgeous islands have a lot more accommodation-wise, than just resorts. Of course there are vast properties with all the trimmings, and small honeymoon-perfect, barefoot luxury hideaways, but there are also fantastic guesthouses, hotels perfectly set up for divers and fishermen, and some surprisingly accessible private islands to stay on.
As with all tropical island groups, our Gurus find one of the big challenges is choosing the right island. So if you’re still at this stage of your Bahamian dream start by reading our Where to Stay section. Otherwise you could scroll down and look at our recommendations for the best places to stay in the Bahamas by type of hotel, or experience, so you can find our top picks for families, for example. What our Gurus do agree with though, is that there’s no poor choice when it comes to the islands of the Bahamas. They’re all a magical backdrop for relaxing, trying something new, or just enjoying yourself!
Where to stay - Which Island?
- Bahama’s capital, Nassau, on New Providence Island, is busy with movement, sounds, colours and smells. Nassau hosts the lion's share of the Bahamian population, restaurants and shops. And Nassau is where you'll find some of the oldest Caribbean beach hotels. Some of these grand old dames still number on the list of the best places to stay in the Bahamas, but there are also a number of smaller, more stylish properties and large, modern resorts just outside Nassau. Founded by the British in 1650, Nassau is probably better known, historically, for its connection with piracy, and especially Blackbeard, who challenged British rule here. So expect forts and cannons, and the cheesy, but fun, pirate museum, the Atlantis Waterscape, plus a vast open-air aquarium.
- Grand Bahama is your classic Caribbean idyll, with near perfect white sandy beaches, fantastically clear, snorkelling friendly waters, a spectacularly beautiful National Park or two, and a small, but fairly varied collection of hotels and resorts. The majority of Grand Bahama’s resorts are large and purpose-built, with quite an American feel — Grand Bahama is only 55miles from Florida — and there are a number of American style malls and diner-style restaurants, but there are also plenty of local markets, botanical gardens and secluded coves. In fact, one of the best things about Grand Bahama's long, thin shape, is that it means that so much of the island is coastline. Grand Bahama’s smaller properties are some of our favourites, and we like it for families too.
- The Exumas are perfect for some island hopping! This island group stretches about 200kms, across beautiful, bright turquoise waters — there are 365 islands and cays in the group — following along a neat line, until you get to the very largest islands, Great Exuma and Little Exuma at the southern end. The majority of them are uninhabited or privately owned, and it’s on some of these that you’ll find some of the best hotels in the Bahamas for shipwreck-style barefoot luxury. They range from wooden beachside cottages to super luxurious hideaways. Great Exuma and Little Exuma are pretty laid-back and gorgeous.
- Eleuthera is our pick if you want total relaxation. Sure, there's plenty to do on this long, narrow stretch of white and green, but this is the kind of place where you're really not expected to do very much, and the best hotels on Eleuthera reflect this.
- The Abaco Islands are a haven for divers and sailors, spreading east from Grand Bahama in a beautiful crescent of little cays and atolls linked by incredible reefs. Most of these islands and atolls are too small to stay on, so the majority of the hotels in the Abaco Islands will be on or around Great Abaco and Little Abaco. There are some on the other islands, though, and if you’re looking for a serious diving holiday, or one of those small, romantic private island resorts, then it’s worth looking here.
- Andros is the largest of the Bahamian islands, by far, but conversely, it’s also the least explored island in the chain. Its interior is varied, with palm forests, wetlands, pine forests and a sort of primordial mangrove forest, and all of it sits atop vast underground, underwater cave system. The biodiversity of animal life is just as impressive as the biodiversity of plant life. Most visitors come here to dive, both under ground and underwater — Andros has a gorgeous reef system just off shore — in fact it has the world’s third largest barrier reef. And the best hotels on Andros are luxurious, private and dive-centric, perfect if you’re looking for barefoot luxury with some diving and snorkelling thrown in.
- Long Island is more dramatic geographically than its neighbours — it even has cliffs, which tower over its eastern shores, and the Atlantic Ocean below. The western side, which is up against the Bahamas Banks, is flatter and sandier, more like the rest of the Bahamas group, and this is where you’ll find most of the accommodation on the island. Divers love Long Island because of its long, long coastline and proximity to Dean’s Blue Hole. Sailors have a love-hate relationship with the island for the same reasons, and the extremely varied nature of its coastline. Our hotel favourites here are all great for watersports-folk.
- Cat Island is best known for its beaches, and history as a pirate hideout, but this is also where you’ll find the highest mountain in the Bahamas — it’s 63 meters high, and topped by a very beautiful monastery. Cat Island also has a complex underground cave system and miles of nature trails, so it’s a good choice if you want to do some interior explorations.
Don't forget that the best places to stay in the Bahamas are extremely busy during the peak Christmas and New Year period, so if you want to be sure of a room, get organised and book well ahead.
The Best Places to Stay in the Bahamas
- The Graycliff Hotel offers a real taste of, albeit luxurious, island life. It’s in the centre of town, which is unusual for the Bahamas, in a wonderfully charming colonial building, which has 20 rooms and suites, and offers five star luxury of the sort that involves antiques, opulent furnishings and four-poster beds. There are two outdoor pools, a gym and spa, lush gardens, an gorgeous sun terrace and an excellent Bahamian restaurant with extensive wine cellars and a cigar factory.
- On Nassau we also like the Compass Point Hotel, a collection of brightly coloured beachfront apartments with 18 colonial style, self-catering rooms. There’s also a fantastic Bahamian/International restaurant and a super cool oceanfront bar, an outdoor pool and hot tub, and a pier with beach access. Aside from the white shutters, everything about the exteriors of these wood-clad giant cubby-houses is colourful and cheerful, which is perfect under the Nassau sunshine.
On Grand Bahama
- Old Bahama Bay is a mid-sized resort when it comes to the number of rooms, with 73 rooms, suites and villas, but it’s large when it comes to the space it occupies. It’s also really friendly, with an excellent kids club and a range of great watersports facilities onsite. The accommodation is in a number of brightly coloured, two storey homestead-style properties, which are on lawns just back from the beach, with large verandas and creamy interiors. There’s a terrific seafood restaurant and a BBQ beach bar.
- The Staniel Cay Yacht Club, on Staniel Cay, is a collection of pretty, brightly coloured beach cottages with a barefoot-boutique feel: expect wooden floors, rain showers in modern bathrooms and traditionally large verandas. There’s also an outdoor pool, gardens and easy marina access. There are just 14 rooms.
Eleuthera’s Best Hotels
- Pink Sands certainly does have pinkish sand directly in front of the hotel, fringed by swaying palms and edged by bright aqua waters. The 25 cottages and villas that make up this resort have a colonial feel, with wooden floors, elegant shutters and lovely private decks. Around you is 26 acres of lush, private gardens, and there are great facilities for a resort this size, with a superb, locally sourced menu at the restaurant and a slick bar. It’s romantic too.
In the Abaco Islands
- Green Turtle Club and Marina is a secluded waterfront resort. Well appointed rooms and suites are stylishly decorated and there are a range of waterfront one, two or three bedroom villas that are perfect for families or small groups. There's a fresh water pool, plus The Yacht Club Pub for cocktails and great food.
On Andros Island
- As well as being one of our favourite places to stay on Andros Island, Tiamo is also one of our picks for the most romantic places to stay in the Bahamas. It’s a luxurious beach resort, right on the water on South Andros Island, comprising of just 13 cottages. As well as being extremely relaxed and barefoot-luxury-y, the vibe here is also eco-friendly. The cottages are all different, some of them in the treetops, some of them on the sand, but they all have wooden floors, a maritime colour scheme, large private terraces and slick, stone bathrooms. There’s a shared pool, but some of the cottages have their own, a Caribbean restaurant, gym, spa, library and direct access to the beach.
- If you’re hunting for that classic Caribbean beach resort, with secluded villas set right on the beach consider, Kamalame Cay a luxurious property with 100 of its own beautiful private acres. These villas are thatched: tick, and surrounded by vast private terraces or balconies: tick, with huge French windows: tick, and huge luxury bathrooms: tick again. They also have a spa built on stilts over the ocean, with a glass bottom to relax with the fish. There’s plenty to do, if you want to, tennis, kayaking, sailing, diving, snorkelling etc., and there’s an excellent restaurant and two breezy beach bars.
On Long Island
- Long Island’s Cape Santa Maria is a gorgeous hotel right beside an even more beautiful beach, with really excellent watersports facilities, and villa accommodation with huge sunset-loving balconies. As well as direct beach access there's a pool, gym and luxurious spa. There's also a fun Bahamian beach bar and good, local cuisine. Romantic, pretty and memorable. This is a great base for an active island break.
Perfect Hotels for a Classic Bahamian Beach Break
- Coral Sands is a stunning beach front hotel set on nine beautiful acres, and three superb miles of white sand, just outside Dunmore Town on Eleuthera. The beach is right outside your door, and the 39 rooms and suites make the most of that, with huge windows and wooden shutters. The decor is elegant all round, with cool tiled floors and dark wood furniture, with modern tropical prints. There’s a pool, lush gardens, a library, billiards room and a superb French-Bahamian restaurant for the evenings.
- Great Exuma’s Club Peace & Plenty is a beautifully converted historic house, in an unbeatable Caribbean setting, right on the water of George Town, beside its own private, palm-fringed beach club. We like this 32 room hotel for those fussy about decor, because the stylish, fairly minimally, but elegant decorated rooms here are difficult to fault, with their wooden floors and white beamed ceilings, pale blue colour schemes and huge terraces with sea views. This is a great base for excursions, day trips and sailing and fishing.
Some of the Most Romantic Hotels in the Bahamas
- Small and stylish, Bahama House in Eleuthera’s Dunmore Town is a plantation house, converted into an intimate 11 room hotel. The individually decorated rooms and suites are spacious, with four-poster beds and interesting art and objects, and if you need more living space they have several separate cottages. There’s a freshwater pool and a classic rum bar, but no restaurant, but you’re in a great spot for restaurants.
- Eleuthera’s The Other Side has got to be the most glamorous glamping site in the Caribbean, with its six immaculate tents, complete with hardwood floors, huge, contemporary four-poster beds, angular furnishings, Berber-style rugs and indulgent details. This is what you’d find if Robinson Crusoe was shipwrecked with Norman Foster. And on a private island. So there’s plenty of seclusion if you want it, but there’s also a games tent, an onsite yoga instructor and a hotel bar that welcomes you to mix your own cocktails if you see fit.
Family Friendly Bahamas
- Nassau’s vast, high-rise The Cove Atlantis is the ultimate family resort with its own cinema, casino, beach, water park, an 18-hole golf course, art classes and just about every other kind of watersport or resort activity you can imagine. The Cove Atlantis is huge, and there’s a correspondingly huge range when it comes to restaurants and bars, with an excellent range of cuisines, from fast, to gourmet to light. There are also several kids clubs.
- As a contrast to The Cove, we also like the Hope Town Harbour Lodge, a pretty Caribbean hotel in a great location on Elbow Cay, which is just off the coast of Great Abaco. The contrasts start with the scale, the Hope Town harbour Lodge has just 25 rooms and suites, and while it’s got great facilities, they’re on the scale of 25 rooms, so include a really beautiful outdoor pool which is right against the ocean, and has its own bar, plus a garden and a library. The price is very different too, this is a really great value choice for families: comfortable, friendly, with plenty of space and a restaurant with amazing views.
- We also like Cat Island’s Fernandez Bay Village for families. It’s a collection of 18 charming, stone beachfront cottages with exposed stone walls, ceiling beams, tiled floors and bamboo furniture inside, and large private patios outside. Their location is superb, right on the sand, and there’s a garden too, plus a fun tiki bar and a restaurant serving great international cuisine.
For Great Value
- Cat Island’s Orange Creek Inn is a collection of 16 no-frills beachfront apartments with stunning views and super simple interiors. There are kitchen and dining areas plus laundry facilities and an ice machine. It’s quiet, and you have direct beach access, which, along with the views, is what makes this such a steal. There’s also a games room and a grocery store.
- For a proper, but affordable, escape from everything try Long Island’s Chez Pierre with its six rustic style bungalows on stilts, right on a deserted beach. There are huge balconies, which wrap right around the buildings, and a superb restaurant specialising in seafood and fresh, local produce. Inside they have some snappy retro tropical print furnishings.
- Eleuthera’s Pineapple Fields is a collection of homely, modern villas right by the beach. The friendliness of this hotel, and the generous sized kitchens and living areas in the villas, makes it easy to feel at home here, albeit with a garden that's likely more tropically-beautiful than the one you have at home. It's easy to charter a boat from here, and there's great fishing. It's also great value.
Prefer a self-catering Apartment or Villa?
- If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner, booking.com.
- Nassau's Lynden Pindling International Airport is the largest airport in the Bahamas, but your other choices when it comes to international airports are Grand Bahama International Airport and Exuma International Airport. It’s relatively easy to island hop via plane if you want to, though it’s quite something to travel on the water. It’s possible to fly direct to Nassau from the UK, and super easy from the US.
- If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars. And if you’re staying on one of the Out Islands we strongly recommend you do book a car, and book one in advance. Settlements on the Out Islands are quite spread out and taxis can be pretty expensive.
- There are really only two seasons in the Bahamas, hot wet summers and warm, drier winters - which tend to be the better season to visit. November to mid-April is the high season. Hurricane season is July through October, so best avoided. The further south you go the more tropical the climate becomes and it tends to be warm all year round, so there are some islands which are idyllic all year round, as they spread right across the Tropic of Cancer.
Still not sure which to book?
- You could refine your search to just the best places to stay in Nassau, the best places to stay on Grand Bahama, the best places to stay in the Exumas or on Eleuthera.
- Or you could expand your search to include all the best places to stay in the Caribbean.
- Alternatively, you could contact one of our friendly Gurus for personalised advice.
