The best luxury hotels in Nassau 2022


Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas and home to most of the archipelago’s entire population. The city is on New Providence. It’s often visited by cruise ships and vacationers seeking white-sand beaches and coral reefs conducive to snorkeling and scuba diving. Founded and built in the 17th century (formerly known as Charles Towne), it was once a haunt for pirates due to its lucrative trade route. The islands have since become part of the Commonwealth; Nassau’s low-rise British architecture is done in pretty pastel tones and provides a beautiful backdrop to this paradise city.

Rosewood Baha Mar

One of three resorts in Baha Mar, the Rosewood is arguably the most sophisticated. It’s adjacent to Cable Beach (where the Rosewood’s butlers attend to your every need) and has plenty of local influences, particularly handicrafts incorporated into the hotel’s chic decor. The 12-story property includes the Sense Spa, a British-style library serving afternoon tea, Costa — a Mexican seafood restaurant and taqueria — and a kids’ club. In addition to the 233 rooms and suites with balconies, accommodation is offered in villas. Guests can kick back in a private poolside cabana (complete with ceiling fan and TV) and dine anywhere in the Baha Mar complex.

The Ocean Club, a four season resort

Located on a five-mile stretch of pure white sand, this playground for the elite has been hosting guests since 1962. Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, the Ocean Club is surrounded by carefully tended gardens, which include its own golf course. Some areas are tiered and filled with colorful bougainvillaea, koi-filled ponds, and statues that overlook the city harbor. Guests can dine western-style at French-Asian Dune, Caribbean Ocean or enjoy lighter meals at Dune Bar and Bond-style at Martini Bar. There’s also a Balinese spa, three pools, and a 12th-century cloister.

The Bay of Atlantis

The Cove is a high-rise (by Bahamian standards), a glitzy complex, and an all-suite, 600-unit resort. Next to Paradise Beach, this is the place to be if you’re looking for amenities galore accessible through the broader Atlantis Resort — especially good for families looking to have fun. It features a water park with 20 swimming areas, a nightclub, a movie theater, a comedy club, a game room, the Mandarin Spa, a casino, golf, diving and snorkeling facilities, and many restaurants including the renowned gourmet restaurant Nobu. The hotel itself houses three restaurants; Fish by Chef Jose Andreas, Mosaic (a Mediterranean buffet) and The Cove Pool Café and Bar.
