BUILDING STANDARDS AND FEATURES

Situated on the highest elevation within the Emerald Bay Resort, all Grand Isle villas overlook the crescent beach, the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Greg Norman designed championship golf course, and/or the mega-yacht marina. The gated and secure community entry features lush tropical landscaping. All roadways and parking areas surfaced in cobblestone-type brick pavers, and all utilities are run underground.

Natural stone steps lead from the resort property to the white sandy beach, protected cove and nearby coral reef. Grand Isle also features a watersports and sundries kiosk to provide residents with everything they need to enjoy the sun and surf.

Grand Isle Resort & Spa consists of sixteen two and three-story buildings in classic West Indies-style architecture. Consisting of just 78 exquisitely furnished villas, our intimate resort fosters a strong sense of community, yet the carefully designed building architecture and meticulously maintained grounds provide ample privacy. The Lucayan and Bahia Mar residences feature two-story “reverse living” floor plans to maximize the extraordinary views. Each luxury home features custom-designed, solid core 8’ Alder interior doors, and powder-coated exterior railings for extra durability.

All buildings offer residents air conditioned storage rooms, and a golf cart garage with power outlet. The penthouse buildings include a private or semi-private elevator.
