1. One & Only Ocean Club
Before the One & Only Ocean Club
became the bastion of luxury and romance that it is today, it was a secluded oasis coined, “Shangri-La” by locals — and with good reason. The Ocean Club’s 105 rooms, suites and villas lie nestled along a stretch of silky white sands, a proper beachfront hideaway offering posh elegance and comfort. Couples at this low-rise resort can glide through their stay amidst the property’s fountains, reflecting pools, waterfalls and Versailles-inspired gardens.
2. British Colonial Hilton
The British Colonial Hilton Nassau
hotel is conveniently located in downtown Nassau, the Bahamas
capital. This hotel offers a taste of the island’s rich Colonial history, along with modern amenities for Bahamas honeymoons
. This urban resort next to the Nassau cruise port offers a private white-sand beach and an outdoor freshwater pool with cabanas as well as watersports, two restaurants and two bars.
3. Sandals Royal Bahamian
Newlyweds will find honeymoon heaven at Sandals Royal Bahamian
adult-only, all-inclusive resort
located along the soft white sands of Nassau’s Cable Beach. With 27 special honeymoon suites, the Royal Bahamian offers couples a more upscale alternative to many of the other Bahama resorts. These oceanfront, secluded penthouse suites are located on the top floors of Balmoral Tower and feature 4-poster mahogany beds, silk rugs and en suite bathrooms.
