Why Stay At Grand Isle Resort & Spa

Luxe yet homey Caribbean-style villas along Great Exuma's powder-white Emerald Bay.

The Scoop

A quick puddle-jump from Miami or Atlanta on a magnificent Bahamian island chain Grand Isle Resort hugs the east coast of Great Exuma. The refined 78-villa complex is set around a sprawling free-form infinity-edge pool overlooking the ocean with direct access to the crescent beach and a splurge-worthy spa. The villas all have private patios and interiors sport bold tropical colors offset by sleekly modern furnishings. Tech amenities are state-of-the-art including complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, spiffy large flat-screen TVs, fully equipped kitchens plus washers and dryers. Fitness freak? Take advantage of the 24-hour gym or try your hand outdoors at non-motorized watersports like kayaking and paddle boarding. If you are in for a pampering, head to the on-site SeaStar spa and unwind during luxe Balinese massages or body facials. Evenings at Grand Isle are a laid-back affair. Guests congregate at The Palapa Grill for cracked-conch appetizers and Caribbean jerk-style entrees washed down with powerful rum cocktails. If you are not in the mood for company, have the staff set up private island-fare dinners for two on your villa's balcony.

Insider Tips

Tee off at the adjacent 18-hole Greg Norman-designed Emerald Reef Golf Club. The par 72-championship course plays to 7,200 yards and features six signature holes along the water.

Hire your own skiff and putter to nearby Thunderball Grotto. Snorkel through the sea cave that was once featured in the James Bond flick of the same name.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Moss Town Exuma International Airport (GGT), which is approximately 7 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 15 minutes of travel time.
