What to expect: The 90-acre Royal Oasis Resort contains two hotels, the family-oriented Holiday Inn and the adult-oriented Crowne Plaza, close to the casino. Three pools give the complex a beach resort atmosphere. The Atlantic Ocean is 3.5 miles away, and a complimentary shuttle transports guests to and from the beach. Guests of both hotels have full and equal access to all resort facilities and activities.
Amenity highlights: Shared by the resort's two hotels, an artificial sandy beach fronts a million-gallon freshwater pool featuring three-story water slides, rock-garden waterfall, volleyball net, and swim-up bar. Each hotel has its own pool as well--the Holiday Inn's large freeform pool is adjacent to a rock-lined spa tub accommodating 20 people. Two 18-hole championship golf courses offer unique tropical challenges such as trade winds and thick vegetation.
Insider tip: A complimentary van shuttles guests between the resort hotels and to nearby points of interest all day and evening. Regularly scheduled shuttle arrives at designated stops.
Fat Cats Beach Club, located near the beach pool, offers supervised day and evening activities for children aged 3-11 in an air-conditioned clubhouse and at a sand playground (fee). The Holiday Inn includes two video-game rooms. Adult group activities center around the beach pool and include dance lessons, bingo, and beach volleyball.
Situated adjacent to the beach pool between the two hotels is a health spa offering massage, body treatments, and nail care. Massage options include Swedish, hot stone, and couples. Body treatment choices include Austrian mud wrap, sugar scrub, and marine salt glow. Nearby, a complimentary fitness center provides cardio and weight machines as well as free weights.
The 28,000-square-foot casino offers slot machines, Caribbean stud poker, blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and sports betting. The casino lounge features live music and dancing nightly. Located in the resort's convention center between the Crowne Plaza and the Holiday Inn, the Palm Pavilion offers a buffet dinner and/or Bahamian folk show (calypso singer, fire dance, limbo dancers) on Tuesday and Saturday nights. Also in the convention center, the Camelot Room offers occasional headline acts such as Percy Sledge or the Village People, and an island-music concert every Saturday night. A music, dance, and tiki torch lighting ceremony takes place several times weekly at the beach pool.
