There are worse ways to spend a vacation than relaxing on the white sand beaches, staying at any one of the best Paradise Island hotels in the Bahamas. As you lay on your beach bed with the swaying palms whistling above you, you hear the waves from the Atlantic coasting into the seashore and exotic migrating birds singing their sweet songs. The beachside bartender brings you an ice cold drink and you toast to happy times in the Bahamas.
The Bahamas are a collection of over 700 islands and cays that sit in the middle of three bodies of water; the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. A trip to Bahamas means a laid back mentality, turquoise waters, and western luxuries like the Paradise Island hotels and resorts we will break down in this article.
Paradise Island, formerly known as Hog Island, is a popular destination not only for its beautiful landscape but also its relative proximity to the country’s capital, Nassau. Paradise Island is actually connected to New Providence (the island Nassau is) by two bridges that cross the harbor of Nassau.
Paradise Island is also known for having some of the most majestic nature, exotic wildlife (Bahamas swimming pigs among other animals), and luxurious amenities for vacationers.
We will better prepare you for your stay on Paradise Island by listing a few of the top Paradise Island hotels and resorts.
Best Paradise Island Hotels for your Stay!
The Cove at Atlantis Resort
Atlantis Paradise Island is perhaps the greatest known resort in the entire world. Hundreds of thousands of people flock to Atlantis from all around the world — some just to tour the resort and some to stay. It is the centerpiece of Paradise Island.
The Cove is gracefully located between paradisaical beaches creating the feeling of being cast away on a private, white-sand beach haven. It is an open-air lobby that rises and sets with the day, an exclusive pool that sits between two private beaches, stunning and sensual rooms and suites, a collection of fine dining and world-class shopping and satisfied service delivered with Bahamian sunshine.
It is perhaps the top Paradise Island resort and, certainly, the largest Atlantis hotel Bahamas has to offer.
The Ocean Club (Four Seasons)
Wake up to a delicious breakfast served on your private balcony with a view, then splurge in the Balinese-style spa villas or head out for a round of golf at Ocean Club Golf Course. However you spend your day, be sure to get back to Martini Bar and Lounge for an indulging nightcap where there’s always a friendly bartender to chat up.
We love this Paradise Islands resort for all that it offers its guests! You are sure to have the experience of a lifetime with Four Season at The Ocean Club.
