Location

Paradise Island (Bahamas)
Located across a high bridge from Nassau, Paradise Island is a great beach and watersports destination that's still a quick taxi ride from the business, shopping, and history of Nassau. All accommodations options are equally convenient, and the resort community of Atlantis is the center for dining, entertainment, and gambling.

General information

Bahamas hotels - Comfort Suites Paradise Island

What to expect: Compass Point is one of several boutique resorts developed by Chris Blackwell of Island Records. The clientele is mostly romantic couples, with occasional celebrities and families. Designed by Biba-clothing founder Barbara Hulanicki, the resort buildings are terraced on a 1.5-acre hillside and painted in the rainbow of bright colors characterizing the Bahamas' annual Junkanoo festival.

Amenity highlights: Large rocks and small, sandy cove beaches, one 75 feet long and the other 25 feet, flank the hotel's dock, which extends over turquoise Atlantic waters. To the west and accessible by a 50-yard walkway, uncrowded Love Beach curves 1.5 miles around a point. Situated behind a whitewashed stone wall 10 feet above the ocean, the hotel's swimming pool has a shallow children's section and a deck with cushioned lounge chairs.

Insider tip: A thatched shelter on the end of the hotel's 100-foot dock provides a tranquil spot for enjoying sunsets, contemplating the ocean, and watching stars at night.

Property amenities

Flowering gardens, thick hedges, and palm trees surround the resort's cottages and cabanas, which are painted in vivid tropical colors. Guests seeking sand and turquoise waters can bask in Compass Point's own small coves or head to neighboring Love Beach, popular with snorkelers. The resort also has an oceanfront restaurant and bar and a freshwater pool. Compass Point Studios, a legendary recording facility, is next door.
