Spotlight on: Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort& Offshore Island

I love this resort because it is so close to the United States plus the resort is only 15 minutes from the international airport and 20 minutes from downtown Nassau. 

The resort was voted “Top Spa Resort” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.  Sandals Royal Bahamian is an elegant resort. You can see in the photos that the indoor spaces have an European elegance. 

Plus it's really two resorts in one as the resort offers an offshore Island just minutes away with two secluded coastlines, a chic beach club, signature pool with swim-up bar, the exquisite Red Lane Spa*, and the region’s best seafood house. 

Why Choose This Resort?
Sandals says, "If you're looking for a regal retreat that gives you two vacations in one: a sophisticated European resort that is steeped in history, and the adventure of an exotic offshore island that includes every amenity imaginable, Sandals Royal Bahamian is for you." 

And I agree. I will give one caveat - the beach here is quite small and a little rocky getting in.

 The Sandals properties in Jamaica and Great Exuma have longer/nicer beaches so if beach is your number 1 priority, I recommend a different Sandals property. I loved this property because I really enjoying lounging around the pool and enjoying the swim up bar.
