Bahamas & Great Exumas
The Bahamas Experts
Did you know we were certified Bahamas Experts? Allow us to create your Bahamas Caribbean getaway easily by creating a FUN & relaxing adventure! Plus you get to enjoy paradise without taking a long flight since the Bahamas are located just off the coast of Florida. There are direct flights from Charlotte that get you in the Bahamas in as little as 2 hours and 15 minutes!
- The Bahamas are made up of over 700 different islands.
- The Nassau/Paradise Island airport (NAS) is by far the easiest to get to from cities in the USA.
- Nassau (NAS) and Freeport (FPO) have large airports that receive large jets while most of the other islands, like Exuma (GGT), are served by smaller aircrafts.
- VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure you are looking at the right airport for the right resort, i.e., you can’t fly into Freeport or FPO and book a resort in Nassau.
Sandals Royal Bahamian and Sandals Emerald Bay
Sandals Royal Bahamian and Sandals Emerald Bay are both incredible resorts in their own way. Each Sandals property has their own personality. It all depends on what you’re looking for. Personally, I’ve never seen more beautiful water than at Emerald Bay. They are beautiful resorts for adult couples only and were designed for romance! Choose Sandals Emerald Bay if you are looking more for a unique off the beaten path resort with a perfect beach. Sandals Royal Bahamian is a better choice for those who want to enjoy casinos (next door) and nightlife. Plus Sandals Royal Bahamian has a private island, which is one of my favorite places to relax in the entire Caribbean. It’s so peaceful and full of ZEN on the backside. Talk about a great place to curl up and read a book.
Here’s the breakdown of the two properties in the Bahamas:
- Sandals Emerald Bay, 183
- Sandals Royal Bahamian, 403
