DISAPPEAR INTO BAHAMIAN BLISSNo less than 700 islands and atolls make up The Bahamas — and reef-rich cerulean seascapes playing against rose-tinted shores are a mesmerizing mainstay on all of them. Unsurprisingly, the deep carnival culture, unparalleled island eats, and sun-soaked beaches of this coveted Caribbean commonwealth have made it a haven for those looking to satiate their wanderlust. Especially those with a romantic bent.
It’s no accident that lovers’ sanctuaries like the iconic Sandals® Emerald Bay and Sandals® Royal Bahamian have chosen Bahamian shores as their backdrop. Happily, Sandals is just as enamoured with the geography that surrounds their hideaways as they are with spoiling their guests — they’re proud members of the EarthCheck initiative that keeps hospitality sustainableand paradise preserved for future generations of travellers. Everything’s been taken care of. All you need to do is decide what comes first; satisfying every desire that crosses your heart, or making sure your companion’s needs are met first.
SANDALS EMERALD BAY
THE ULTIMATE GOLF, TENNIS & SPA RESORTThis retreat should be high on the list of wanderers keen to stay active on 4 kilometres of seaside jogging trails, melting into massaged puddles of relaxation at the 16,000 sq. ft. Red Lane® Spa, or finding a perfect mash-up by blending an energetic escape with a sojourn into sweet self-care.
Hungry for greens? Touted as one of the best golf getaways in the Caribbean by Travel + Leisure magazine, this Sandals spot lures those looking to tee up and work on their backswing in the lap of leisure. Their award-winning 18-hole, par 72 Bahamas Great Exuma Classic championship course (designed by Greg Norman himself) isn’t just golf nirvana — it’s also the home of the Korn Ferry PGA Tournament.
Luxury lodgings marked by colonial architecture tucked into 500 tropical acres on the breathtaking Bahamian Out Islands aside, you’ll also find a 5-Star Global Gourmet™ dining plan at 11 eateries and the Caribbean’s largest zero-entry pool here, complete with central fire pit and swim-up bar. Bottoms up!
SANDALS ROYAL BAHAMIAN
ELEGANCE IN THE BAHAMASAn oasis of old-world charm, this exclusive secluded refuge was once a private club for 1940s high-society the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Unsurprisingly, unparalleled opulence reigns here to this day — Butler Suite guests are shuttled from tarmac to lobby in Rolls Royce or Mercedes Benz luxury town cars, and it’s the only Nassau resort that boasts a private island. \
With two signature Red Lane® Spas on the estate, a restorative respite is easily sorted. We strongly suggest a seaside massage on the offshore Zen Garden — The Bahamas' Best Resort Spa title garnered by the World Travel Awards is well-earned.
Curiosity piqued by that island? A five-minute Sandals boat ride reveals a private beach, pool, jacuzzi, two singular culinary adventures, and upscale evening entertainment.
Do keep it real by chartering a trip over to Exuma to swim with piggies before escaping into all this elegance.
SAY “I DO”, SANDALS STYLE…Marrying leisure and love is effortless on the island — a personalized wedding team helps you bespoke everything from your bouquet to the soundtrack of your seaside ceremony. With next-level nuptial perks like a signature cocktail for you and your spouse-to-be, a romantic honeymoon dinner, mimosa breakfast in bed, and complimentary wedding photography, it’s hard to object to a singular Sandals union on Bahamian shores. You can even pay a little extra for a live-stream of your celebration of love so that your nearest and dearest back home can bear witness to the whole affair.
Cold feet and want some time to decide if a destination wedding is right for you and your boo? No sweat. Test Drive Your WeddingMoon® before the big day and meet the whole team with a regal resort preview (save room for the sparkling wine and cake tastings).
TOP 3 ACTIVITIES
CASUAL CATAMARAN FOR TWOCruise through Nassau’s Paradise Island Harbour to gawk at epic seascapes along the coast in the comfy cradle of a catamaran as the sun sinks into the sea. Note that wine and cocktails are both on deck, and begging for a little indulgence. As are hors d'œuvres — so do dig in between sips and sightseeing if you’re feeling peckish. Wanna make this a wedding-centric jaunt over Bahamian waves? Done. Just tell your wedding planner so your wedding cake can come too.
PINK SANDS & PIGGIES THAT SWIM!Board a 35-foot, custom-designed catamaran and skim the waves in and out of 75 dreamy cays, over schools of stingrays, and all the way to the pretty pink sands of Eleuthera. Stop for wow-worthy wonders on an island with a 360-degree view of the Exuma cays that indigenous peoples once called home, now inhabited by the rare Bahamian rock iguana. Grab one for the gram. But the cherry on this fun day is a swim and a snorkel near a virgin sand bar with the famed swimming pigs. FYI, snacks will be served to both four-legged and two-legged swimmers alike, so no need to pack a lunch.
NASSAU SUB ADVENTURESThis sub-aquatic escapade is truly like no other — imagine an underwater motorbike with an oxygen-filled bubble serving as both diving bell and porthole, putting you face-to-fin with mesmerizing, crayon-coloured marine life and captivating coral reefs. With your body submerged and your head dry, you’ll scoot around the ocean floor on a truly singular exploration of all things natural and nautical. This one will plunge you into a playdate of pure fun you’ll never forget.
