A villa stay at a AAA Four Diamond Award beach hotel on the Bahamas' breathtaking Emerald Bay, with a Travel + Leisure-approved restaurant and spa

The Beach Boys may sing otherwise, but there’s no “Bermuda, Bahama” discussion when your Bahamian stay is at Grand Isle Resort & Spa. This laid-back seafront destination is where hardcore vacationers call off their search for the best beach retreat and just hit those sands and bask in that sunshine. Of course, the hotel’s been the subject of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Traveller’s Choice Award, plus a AAA Four Diamond Award, too. If anything, as far as that “best” title goes, this property is a pretty solid contender.

So aside from all that ivory sand, what’s in Grand Isle’s secret formula? It probably includes some seawater, which helped make Travel + Leisure vote the area the Best for Fishing in the Bahamas, and which is used in the SeaStar Spa, which Travel + Leisure voted one of the Top Spas in the Bahamas. There’s likely a tropical cocktail from Palapa Grill, which Travel + Leisure voted one of the country’s best romantic restaurants. Between all these awards, though, the formula’s so good that it's hard to say – maybe the best idea is to stop thinking and hit this beach yourself, stat.
