Sandals Emerald Bay
Great Exuma, Bahamas
Although I was only able to visit Sandals Emerald Bay for a day, this intimate, romantic resort captured my heart! Nestled within the idyllic, clear blue waters of the 365 Exuma islands and cays, you feel like you've left all of your worries behind!
This magnificent 245 room oceanfront property partners classical elegance and sophistication, with a sense of tranquility. Secluded within 500 tropical acres along a pristine mile-long beach, with lush lawns, vibrant bougainvilleas and palm trees providing nooks and crannies throughout the resort, affording privacy and intimacy for couples in love.
One of 3 pools, the half-acre, zero-entry main pool entices guests with a Jacuzzi, swim-up bar, a unique fire pit in the middle and complimentary poolside cabanas with misters.
A comprehensive array of water sports including kayaks, windsurfing, hobie cat sailing and standup paddle-boarding are included, as well as free guided snorkeling tours and scuba diving. If you'd like to become PADI certified to participate in unlimited scuba, a certification class is offered right on property for a minimal fee.
All accommodations are either Club Sandals level or Butler level rooms and villas, offering unparalleled service and amenities for all! Consider the ultimate indulgence of a personal butler at your beck and call...
7 extraordinary dining experiences, including a seafood restaurant on the beach...sit barefoot while you dine! Delicious Italian and French cuisine restaurants are available for a more elegant experience. Or, an authentic British Gastro Pub, gourmet Pizzeria and Caribbean fare restaurant are available for a more casual atmosphere. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth at the French Patisserie from morning til night!
Weekly themed events including Reggae Night, Chocolate Late Night Buffet and a Junkanoo Beach Party are available to attend. Dance lessons, live music, jazz performances, introductory golf and tennis lessons are just some of the activities that are included. There are also plenty of outdoor activities such as volleyball, horseshoes, bocce ball, croquet and billiards.
Sandals Emerald Bay is not an ordinary destination but rather, one for those seeking an exceptional Caribbean experience! I know I plan to head back with my husband to truly pamper ourselves at this luxury-included this gem!
