Finding Luxury in The Bahamas

Posted by: Nassau Paradise Island on December 15, 2017

A special anniversary or milestone birthday, a big promotion at work, a surprise for someone you love, or simply because you deserve it: there are plenty of reasons to indulge in a premium experience during your Nassau Paradise Island vacation. Luxurious resorts, world-class fine dining, pampering spa treatments, and chic experiences mean there are plenty of ways to sample a five-star lifestyle in The Bahamas. No matter how big or small your vacation budget may be, or how much time you have to spare, you can enjoy a taste of the high life in Paradise.

If you have one hour…

Stroll by the yachts in Marina Village. Sure, it’s not quite the same as spending months sailing the Caribbean on board one of these sleek vessels, but checking out the impressive yachts docked at Marina Village is an enjoyable way to spend some time. And best of all, it’s completely free!

Harborside Resort, Atlantis

Invest in designer fashion or a new heirloom. Designer boutiques and couture labels line the elegant corridor at Crystal Court Shops. Located at Atlantis, Paradise Island, Crystal Court is the perfect place to try on clothing, accessories, and jewelry by brands such as Gucci, Versace, Tory Burch, David Yurman, Cole’s of Nassau, and others. The shops of Baha Mar feature bespoke brands like Rolex, Tiffany & Co., and John Bull, if you’re in search of a new outfit or accessory to elevate your style. Or browse Bahama Art & Handicraft or Craft Cottage Bahamas for a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork or jewelry made by local craftspeople. Shopping in Nassau Paradise Island is a real treasure hunt!

If you have one afternoon…

Sample wines from one of the most exclusive collections on earth. The Graycliff wine cellar holds more than $20 million in wines and is one of the largest private wine collections in the world. With bottles from more than 400 winemakers in 15 countries, you’re bound to find your new favorite vintage! Indulge in a wine and cheese pairing or a wine luncheon for a delightful afternoon in an elegant, historic setting.

Be pampered at a world-class spa. An oceanside massage, a rejuvenating facial, a hydrating body treatment – your worries and cares will melt away as soon as you don a fluffy white robe at one of Nassau Paradise Island’s renowned spas. There’s truly no better way to relax on vacation than with a trip to the spa, and every guest receives the celebrity treatment. Make an appointment for your favorite spa service or try something new.

If you have one evening…

Indulge in a decadent dinner. Make like 007 and head to Café Martinique for classic French gourmet fare and a restaurant that was originally made famous in the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball. Watch the sun set over the ocean from your patio seat at Dune by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, where French, Asian, and Bahamian flavors intermingle for an unforgettable dining experience. Got a sushi craving? Nobu and Katsuya by Starck Baha Mar both serve up Japanese classics with unique twists in sleek settings.

Play like a high roller. The Caribbean’s largest and most exciting casinos are the best places to play after the sun goes down. With floor-to-ceiling windows providing expansive ocean views and 100,000 square feet of gaming space, the Baha Mar Casino is a stunning place to try your luck. And with 85 table games, more than 700 slot machines, and a new Race and Sports Book, the Atlantis Casino is a sleek and exciting destination for a night out.

If you have a week…

Experience the legendary Ocean Club. Situated on 35 pristine acres of meticulously groomed grounds, The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, is synonymous with Caribbean glitz and glamour. Impeccable guest service means that each and every visitor receives the royal treatment, and premium amenities – like the spectacular Ocean Pool and the opulent Versailles Pool – provide a soothing respite from the everyday.

Upgrade to The Cove Atlantis. Now with a redesigned, private adults-only pool area and refreshed suites and guestrooms, The Cove is the standout star of the Atlantis family. Luxe accommodations, fine dining, sleek poolside cabanas, exciting nightlife, and a stunning white-sand beach – everything you need for an exquisite escape is right here at The Cove, in addition to the wealth of activities and services available at Atlantis!


Cove Pool

Discover SLS Baha Mar. One of the Caribbean’s newest and most exciting places to stay, SLS Baha Mar is a sophisticated oasis where guests can enjoy the best of everything: designer amenities, stylish décor, excellent dining and nightlife, and fantastic service, all located just steps away from Nassau’s postcard-perfect Cable Beach.
