If you’ve seen the James Bond flick Casino Royale, you’ve caught a glimpse of this breezy Bahamian resort on Paradise Island’s northern shore. From the whitewashed front porch and views of the Caribbean Sea, to the fresh lemonade welcome drinks and check-in performed in the cozy library, this colonial-style resort makes an excellent first impression, and continues to impress with features like an adults-only pool and attentive service in the form of a private butler. Rooms and Suites have a colonial, island-preppy look, with dark wood floors, white linens and jaunty striped rugs and cushions. Flat-screen TVs, iPod docks and WiFi help keep you connected no matter which room you pick, though spacious suites are worth the splurge for the private terraces overlooking the gardens, beach and Caribbean Sea. Afternoons see chilled champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries delivered to all guests. While Four Seasons offers a kids program and a family pool, the resort is also suited to romantic getaways or grown-up gangs of vacationers who will enjoy the championship golf course and the award-winning spa. Each of the Balinese-style treatment suites has its own waterfall shower, daybed, and hot tub in a private garden. Just above Cabbage Beach is a large wooden deck—ideal for yoga. On the food front, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Dune restaurant serves elegant French-Asian dishes like roasted Nassau grouper in a Christian Liaigre-designed dining room, while the historic Courtyard Terrace offers a romantic, candlelit setting for Mediterranean-influenced dinner fare. For more casual dining, snag a seat at the Clubhouse overlooking the 9th and 18th holes of the golf course or hit the poolside café.
In the Area
Four Seasons provides complimentary transportation to sister property Atlantis, a mega-resort with a casino that offers blackjack, roulette, Caribbean stud poker, baccarat, craps and hundreds of slot machines 24 hours a day. There’s also an extensive list of dining options here, including famous chains such as Nobu, Mesa Grill, Carmine’s, Virgil’s BBQ and Ben & Jerry’s. Families can brush up on marine science with the Atlantis Aquarist for the Day program—hand-feed stingrays and go behind the scenes of the resort’s huge marine habitats. Golf fans will want to take a turn on the championship golf course, where players get jaw-dropping Paradise Island views from every hole.
How to Get There
We met our mates from NYC here during UK October half term - had the most luxurious stay and would highly recommend for a dose of sun before the winter sets in. Our friends had little tots but ours are teens and all ages had something fun to do each day.
You have to go...for us all aspects of the hotel are incredible. It was a long awaited wish of ours to stay overnight....after normally visiting only for lunch
Great staff....each and every one lovely and professional.
Can only dream one day of revisiting..and perhaps next time staying longer to enjoy a little more
Would love to see a different food menu next time
We visited a lot of resorts around the world including the Caribbeans so we could state that such a property is close to unique !
The position on the beach is wonderful , the beach itself is superb with fine white sand and a crystal clear water showing all the shades of green.
The rooms are large with a wide balcony wherefrom one may admire the stunning landscape.
As you leave the villas you get into a wondrous park which extends into French style gardens built after those of Versailles...
The restaurants are of a top quality covering all the tastes and expectations.
The service is smooth and efficient.
The people at the front desk were very kind and forthcoming
When we decided to go visit other places like the Atlantis complex we were given , complimentary ,one of the nice white cars of the resort.
We want to thank to everybody in the team : well done guys !
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The place is unique. It has a beautiful garden called Versailles garden. The room was amazing. We had incredible views of the ocean and a huge bathroom. Definitely, everything was really good. The only but would be that there is just one restaurant there and that the service of the restaurant was a bit too slow. The beach was nice, and we could rent some jet skis and drive around other islands. In summary, it’s a hotel to just chill and relax. Good food, beautiful beach and nice rooms.
We stopped by for drinks and lunch while staying at the Atlantis. My wife had stayed there a few years ago and wanted to show me the facility, she wasn't disappointed. The facility is perfect, the service is even better. I realize you expect this at a Four Seasons and you won't be disappointed. The history of this facility is impressive, the beach is beautiful, lawn and pool flawless. I will consider being here a highlight to our trip.
Thank you Four Seasons for all you do in training and management to offer this experience.
