Exquisite Sophistication in the Exotic Bahamian Out Islands

Deep within the idyllic waters of the Exumas, Sandals Emerald Bay brings unprecedented luxury to the easy-going rhythms of the Bahamian Out Islands. This luxury Bahamas resort is a privileged enclave, designed to ensure you'll feel like you're the only ones there, where service reigns supreme and Bahamian-style architecture of elegant villas and suites harmonize with nature. Secluded within 500 tropical acres along a pristine, mile-long beach, civilized pleasure coexists with exotic adventures, from three impressive pools - including a half-acre, zero-entry pool with a dramatic fire pit in the middle - to seven exceptional restaurants.

Sandals Emerald Bay Highlights

Paradise within Reach

Exotic luxury close to home

A mere 40 minutes by plane from South Florida, the 360 tiny isles and cays that make up the Exumas feel as though they are a world apart. These islands boast surrounding waters that are an almost unimaginable shade of blue, and are revered the world over for their diving, fishing and yachting. It's a place where powder white sandbars appear and disappear with the tides and Mother Nature is your only guide.

Built for Romance and Relaxation

Ovelooking the cobalt blue of the sea, an exotic pool meanders past graceful palms and invites you to succumb to the languor of the tropics. And with signature panache, Sandals has created an immense half-acre, zero-entry pool with a soaring sunset tower and a serpentine swim-up bar where you can sip Mojitos and Mango Daiquiris not just by the pool but in it.
