For a travel experience as smooth as our soft white sand, make sure that you have documentation of your negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test (taken within five days of departure) and your Bahamas Travel Health Visa before you depart.

There is currently a curfew in place on Nassau Paradise Island so after a day of relaxing and enjoying all that paradise has to offer, make sure you’re back at your hotel by 10 pm, where you’ll be able to move about the property and enjoy all available amenities.

When planning your Bahamas vacation, keep in mind that a small group is best.

Smaller and socially distanced groups mean that you’ll have space and privacy to truly relax while staying safe.
