General information

Bahamas hotels - Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa All Inclusive

What to expect: Voted "Top Caribbean Spa" by the Condé Nast Traveler magazine's readers' pool in 2002, the resort's health-and-beauty spa lies down an outside staircase next to which are three hot and cold plunge pools. Complimentary facilities consist of men's and women's eucalyptus steam baths, saunas, and vanity/shower areas, and a fitness center furnished with cardio machines, weight-training equipment, and free weights. Various fitness classes are conducted daily.

Amenity highlights: The resort offers uncrowded swimming, soaking, and sunbathing space, including two enormous freeform pools with swim-up bars, many large soaking spas, and acres of light, fine-textured sand. One stretch of sand furnished with hammocks is terraced above a rocky shelf between the resort's two piers, with little private beaches at the shelf's ends and public Cable Beach running adjacent to the shelf. Sandals Cay, the resort's private island 0.5 miles off shore, is accessible by complimentary shuttle-boat and includes a large pool, two beaches, and a spa. Three small, tropical-garden pools and sundecks provide tranquil sunbathing on padded lounge chairs.

Insider tip: Located just above the beach, a spa secluded from resort activities provides quiet, social soaking for 24 people with a full ocean view.
