Sandals Emerald Bay Golf, Tennis & Spa Resort, Great Exuma

Set on a mile-stretch of pristine sands, this resort brings the Sandals experience to a new level.

Designed to make you feel like you’re the only people on the island, this charming resort blends effortlessly with its stunning natural surrounds. Sandals Emerald Bay Golf, Tennis & Spa Resort is set within 500 acres of tropical grounds which are fringed by a mile-long powder-white beach and provides high levels of service and a world of leisure facilities. These include an 18-hole championship ocean-front golf course designed by golf pro Greg Norman, and an expansive Red Lane® Spa, covering almost 5000 square metres. If sun and relaxation is what you’re after, why not take a dip in the half-acre swimming pool – the largest on the island – and one of three at the resort.

There are 11 restaurants which include a selection of fine dining venues and casual settings with a variety of delectable dishes from across the globe. If white-glove service as well as exquisite interiors is your thing, why not book at table at Il Cielo, which offers diners an authentic taste of Tuscany with unsurpassed views over Emerald Bay. Be sure to sample the restaurant’s signature cocktail – The Capresetini – a tomato and basil infused vodka martini – before heading to Il Cielo’s Dolce Lounge, where expert pastry chefs showcase their skills with flambéed desserts, fresh pastries and Italian gelato.

The generously-sized rooms and suites are adorned with stone floors, handcrafted furnishings and British Colonial inspired accents with pretty views of the sparkling ocean, pools and gardens. Throughout the grounds are a wide range of categories of rooms and suites to choose from, including rooms which overlook the resort’s gardens to beachfront suites with luxurious extras such as Butler Service.
