Hotels In The Bahamas

Hotels in The Bahamas offer laid-back accommodations on a seemingly Caribbean island that is surrounded by some of the clearest waters on Earth. Beneath the water, over 200 feet of visibility is possible, making this destination one of the best anywhere for scuba diving and snorkeling adventures. Known for its white and pink sand beaches, its turquoise waters and its infamous swimming pigs, The Bahamas was once home to the notorious pirate Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach. The island’s amazing marine life includes dolphins, bonefish, stingrays, sea turtles, angelfish, frogfish and arrays of colorful reef fish. When traveling to The Bahamas, keep in mind that English is the primary language, that the United States dollar is accepted, and that cars drive on the left-hand side of the road. While in The Bahamas, do make it a point to try the local conch. Hotels in The Bahamas indeed offer some of the most amazing accommodations in all of the North Atlantic Ocean. Before we get to hotels in The Bahamas, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.

During the 800s-1000s AD, the Taino people, later known as the Lucayan people, became The Bahamas’s first inhabitants. The first European to discover The Bahamas was Christopher Columbus, who in 1492 made landfall in what he named San Salvador, an island locally known as Guanahani. At the time of Columbus’s arrival, an estimated 30,000 Lucayans inhabited the islands. For over one hundred years circa 1513-1648, the islands were mostly deserted due to the native Lucayans being shipped as slaves to Hispaniola. Blackbeard sought refuge in Nassau circa 1696. In 1718, The Bahamas became a British crown colony in large part to suppress piracy. African slaves brought to the island made up the majority of the population until 1834, when slavery was abolished. The Bahamas became an independent Commonwealth realm in 1973, and has since flourished due to tourism and offshore finance.

Just 50 miles off Florida’s eastern coast, the Bahamas archipelago consists of roughly 700 islands and over 2,000 rocks and cays, spread out over 100,000 square miles of ocean. Officially known as The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, The Bahamas is a country within the Lucayan Archipelago, which is named for the aforementioned Taino people. The Bahamas islands enjoy a tropical Savannah climate, with average high temperatures ranging from 77 degrees Fahrenheit in January, to almost 90 degrees in August. Hurricane season historically is strongest during the August and September months. Tourism accounts for roughly 50% of the nation’s GDP, and employs around half of its population. In 2012, 5.8 million people visited The Bahamas, 70% of which were cruise visitors. Main attractions include Blue Lagoon Island, Atlantis Aquaventure Water Park, Dean’s Blue Hole, Cable Beach, Junkanoo, Paradise Island and Lynden Pindling International Airport. Popular foods include cracked conch, which is a Bahamian signature dish, rock lobster, stew fish, Johnnycakes, or a type of cornmeal flatbread that was an early American staple food, conch salad, pigeon peas and rice, baked crab, souse (head cheese), grouper with grits and rum cake. Popular drinks include the Bahama Mama, Rum Punch, Bushwacker, Hibiscus Margarita and more. The Bahamas’ national drink is known as switcha, which is a non-alcoholic, lemon-lime flavored beverage. Equipped with a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in The Bahamas that will help make for an unforgettable experience.

  1. Wow! Some of these are amazing!  Some of the higher end ones are definitely pretty expensive, but actually not terrible when you look at the cost per person.  I have been considering a trip to Bahamas, Punta Cana or Cancun – these pix really make the resorts in the Bahamas come alive.  Do you know what the impact of the hurricane has been?  Has there been an impact to tourism and to any of these places?

  2. I have heard a lot about the beautiful city of Bahamas but I never really thought that it could be this much elegant and I can only say that the beautiful  hotels situated here are one of the beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. This is pure paradise on earth. Exploring a night in any of them would mean living that special life of luxury. To me, based on their appearance and services, I’m sure they are worth the prices

  3. I wasn’t expecting anything less from an awesome location like this. I think though that visiting a place like this might be too expensive for me but i wouldn’t still mind going there though. Maybe someday. There are really nice places around the hotels you shared. The hotels are considered five star with all these amenities. I reall do need to visit. Im bookmarking this post.

  4. Nassau Bahamas could be my next home in the coming months to come. I have heard some interesting facts about this place but it is an understatement compared to the beauties displayed by the hotels in here on this list. I must only compliment such beauty. Firstly, I like all the hotels and I can only pick randomly going by the provisions made but then, they are all recently priced atleast for more people, it wouldn’t feel like a burden. Thanks

  5. That is such an inviting pace by the looks of your photos. They really draw you in and want to be there. I have thought about going to the Bahamas as past of a cruise, but now I am thinking that a one or two day stopover would not be enough. 

    You have given some good options for accommodation. I think the more expensive ones look amazing but even the lower cost accommodation, although not a budget price, seem to be great value for money.  It is affordable and totally worth it to go to such a cool place. 

    Thank you for the great ideas for accommodation in the Bahamas. It has given me the inspiration to look into it further. 

    Karen

  6. This is really good. I am really  glad to read your review on another beautiful city. I don’t really know much about Nassau Bahamas but it looks like a place for one to really chill and have good fun. I wouldn’t mind visiting with all my family sometimes. I will show this to them so they can tell me exactly what they think. For me, it the perfect place for a vacation getaway.
