Top Hotels in Nassau
Your Nassau vacation equals relaxation and dreamlike experiences. When you’re not floating in the blue lagoon or meandering through lush gardens and befriending pink flamingos, you’ll be resting back at your hotel. Stay at one of these popular accommodations, and you’re guaranteed a lovely time in paradise:
- Meliá Nassau Beach - All Inclusive: Overlooking bone-white sand and gentle waves, the Melia Nassau Beach is a world-class resort. Fall asleep to the sound of the water and wake up to views of the Atlantic Ocean. The resort also has spacious suites, three outdoor pools, and kayaks.
- Sandyport Beach Resort: Sleep your morning away on a hammock along the beach, counting the boats that go by. This resort has candy-colored buildings right on the coast and it’s near Cable Beach.
- Orange Hill Beach Inn: Enjoy a private respite on New Providence Island. Sleep in late, get a cocktail at the bar, and walk the beach. The hotel is happy to arrange lifechanging scuba diving excursions.
- Graycliff Hotel And Restaurant: This hotel is in the heart of the city, and while it’s close to the beach, it also feels like a remote oasis. Lay by the pool and enjoy your time in the colonial home turned hotel.
Sand and Sea, and So Much More
Your Nassau vacation package has you excited to spend your days on island time, and there are plenty of ways fill your leisurely hours. Begin your morning with a trek up the Queen’s Staircase to Fort Fincastle. This 18th-century fort once housed a battery of cannons and a howitzer; today, it provides insight into history. When you’re done scanning for pirates, tour the John Watling Distillery and taste the homemade rum. It’s about time to head to the coast, so stake your patch of sand on Blue Lagoon Island or bring a snorkel mask to Cabbage Beach see what lies just off shore. When hunger strikes, local delicacies like conch, cassava bread, and rock iguana are waiting to delight your taste buds.
Festivals and Events
Your beach vacation in Nassau wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t rub elbows with a few locals and celebrate island traditions. Up for some true Bahamian culture? Welcome to Junkanoo Festival. Held three times a year—on Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, and in July—it’s a party that extends to the entire Bahamas nation. Enjoy a parade featuring people dressed in traditional attire and dancing to choreographed beats of goatskin drums and cowbells. In October, the Wine and Art Festival awaits; admire the work of local artists as you sip on fermented finds in the Bahamian National Park.
