Overview

The Review

Arriving at Old Bahama Bay, which has 73 rooms and nearly just as many marina slips, is like being welcomed to a private harborside club. The cluster of two-story houses, washed in pale pinks, greens and blues, have a calm, almost preppy vibe — you’d never suspect that the surrounding bay has a history of marauding pirates and Prohibition-era rum runners.

All have an elegant, relaxed feel, with colonial plantation–style decor — think mahogany furniture, soft, pale linens and marble jet baths.

As well as the arc of white sand beach in front of the property, there’s a double-tiered cascading infinity pool, which is heated seasonally and never too crowded. And for active types, Hobie craft and clear-bottom kayaks lie at the ready; a bit farther away, the bright red activities hut offers bicycles, snorkel equipment and lifejackets.

Old Bahama Bay has two casual restaurants right beside the sea: Teasers Tiki Bar (for cocktails and snacks) and Bonefish Folley’s, which serves simple Bahamian dishes like conch fritters and chowder, followed by rum cake. I loved watching the brilliant sunset out the window as boaters unloaded their daily catch on the adjacent dock.

Although the property draws couples for these simple, romantic moments, it’s well suited for families with young children, too, with a small playground and toys to use on the beach. Above all, it’s the kind of place where all you need is a bathing suit, flip-flops and a laid-back state of mind.
