General information

Bahamas hotels - The Westin at Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort

What to expect: The 372-acre Our Lucaya Resort contains two hotels. The Westin caters largely to adults and couples, while its companion hotel, the more casual Sheraton, is designed for families. Guests of both hotels have full access to all resort facilities and activities. The resort's expansive beach and four large pools accommodate both guests eager for fun in the sun and those seeking a tranquil getaway.

Amenity highlights: The resort's 7.5-acre beach slopes gently into turquoise waters hiding coral outcroppings for snorkeling. The Westin hotel section has two large spa tubs and three pools, one an enormous serpentine shape featuring an infinity edge and swim-up bar, and one a 90 by 12-foot lap pool. The Sheraton hotel section next door features Sugar Mill Pool, with a 60-foot-high stone tower, spiral waterslide, and a "quiet" section for adults. The resort complex has 15 restaurants and cafés.

Insider tip: The Manor House, Westin's colonial-style main building, not only contains a two-story lobby with potted palm trees and comfortable seating, but offers a veranda with rattan rocking chairs. From there, guests look over banks of blue-blossom plumbago and down an expansive manicured lawn to the ocean. This little-used veranda provides a tranquil setting for morning coffee and evening cocktails.
