Sandals Royal Bahamian: This adults-only all-inclusive resort not only features a stunning beachfront location, but it also has its own private island for you and your love to enjoy! Book yourself into one of the swim-up suites or treat yourself to butler service. Toast to each other at one of two swim-up bars or set out to sea in a kayak or sailboat built for two.

The Cove at Atlantis: An elegant oasis in the center of Atlantis, Paradise Island’s sought-after scene, guests of The Cove not only get to take advantage of the hotel’s ideal beachfront location and exciting amenities like the 60,000 square-foot casino or the Mandara Spa, but you’ll have an adults-only pool complete with plush loungers and intimate cabanas to while the day away together.

The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort: The lush and luxurious Ocean Club has suites with incredible views, an award-winning spa, and 35-acres of Bahamian landscape to explore together. Lounge by the beachside infinity pool or treat yourself to a villa with a private pool for just the two of you.

SLS Baha Mar: Stylish and exciting, with touches of luxury at every turn, this hotel is perfect for couples craving a glamorous escape. Head to the hotel’s private pool or the white sands of Cable Beach. Take in panoramic views at their rooftop lounge, or soak in the sunset from your room’s private balcony.

For a memorable meal

You’ll find delicious cuisine and friendly service wherever you choose to eat in Nassau Paradise Island but if you’re looking to make date night extra special, we’ve definitely got restaurants worth writing home about. Renowned sushi master Katsuya Uechi’s namesake restaurant Katsuya serves up impeccable sushi and Japanese fusion dishes in a beautifully modern dining room designed by Philippe Starck. Graycliff was the Bahamas’ first five-star restaurant and it remains the standard for upscale dining in downtown Nassau. 

For dinner with a view

For outstanding water views and food that leaves you feeling good, dine at Café Martinique, a plant-forward fan favorite at Marina Village. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s beachside restaurant Dune at The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort is perfectly perched to take in ocean views by day and listen to the lapping waves by night. 

For dining al fresco

With warm weather and sunshine 300 days of the year, it’s understandable that you’d want to enjoy the beautiful Bahamian outdoors as much as possible. Costa at Rosewood Baha Mar brings the outdoors in and the flavors of Mexico to the shores of Cable Beach. Relax at the outdoor patio at 25 North as you dine on light, fresh fare, or feast on Bahamian classics under the sun at Sip Sip.

For a place to toast

Order your favorite cocktail, or discover a new one, at these chic bars and lounges perfect for kicking off the evening in style—or ending it with a nightcap. Moon Bar at Atlantis, Paradise Island is steps from the excitement of the casino floor. Sleek and polished, with an extensive wine list and bespoke signature cocktails, it’s out of this world! If you’re at the casino at Baha Mar, check out Bar Noir, a circular cocktail bar that serves classic cocktails amid the glitz of the casino floor. Old-world elegance and sophisticated tastes are on the menu at Manor Bar, a stylish lounge at Rosewood Baha Mar. The panoramic views at Sky Bar—the only rooftop bar on the island—are perfect for taking in the sunset together and the outdoor patio at the Sea Glass Lounge is perfect for cozying up as you enjoy evening Bahamas breezes.

Looking to rest and relax or try something new together? Either way, there are some incredible activities perfect for a couples’ getaway in Nassau Paradise Island.
