What makes a resort great?
This is an important question you
might be asking yourself as you plan that next tropical getaway.
While people may differ on what amenities they think are necessary during a Caribbean vacation, there are certain things that distinguish a resort from a typical hotel.
Fortunately, Grand Isle Resort & Spa in Exuma ticks all the boxes, and then some.
Gordon “Butch” Stewart, the founder of Sandals’, once said: “Life is a beach.” Indeed, every property he acquired needed one spectacular feature – a long stretch of sparkling, white sand. Emerald Bay Beach, more than one mile long, is literally steps from Grand Isle’s luxurious villas, which brings us to the second most important element – the accommodations.
Premium resorts need to live it. Everything from the linens, to the bathroom products, to the comfort of the bed itself must possess quality. And certainly, Grand Isle, arguably the most luxurious community in the Bahamian Out Islands, has all of that in spades.
An infinity pool, health and fitness center, access to activities and water sports, great restaurants and a dedicated staff are all other big boxes to tick at Grand Isle.
