Indulge Yourself in Paradise: The Super-Deluxe Private Nandana Resort, Bahamas


The proprietors of Nandana Villa in the Bahamas say, “Find us and you find paradise.” Although this sounds like hyperbole, it’s not: the word Nandana actually means “paradise” in Sanskrit — and the moment you arrive at this five-star custom resort’s private dock, you’ll know that’s nothing more than the unvarnished truth. Through 200-year-old hand-carved teak doors, you’ll enter the Great Hall, the “hub” of the resort, where social amenities include a glass-enclosed wine room. From there, check into one of five separate villas — one-bedroom “bangalas” (bungalows), each with its own climate control and security — and savor the perfect combination of solitude and gorgeous island views. For the ultimate in a magical island night, try the Canopy Suite, a 2,000-square-foot safari-style tent, nestled among towering palms, that includes all the amenities of the other suites, including air conditioning and a fully-appointed bathroom.


But you won’t want to spend much time sleeping, either; the resort’s facilities feature not only a 120-foot infinity pool that drops gracefully onto a private beach…but a championship golf course, Jet Skis and ATVs, beach volleyball, snorkeling, and fishing. If it’s your pleasure, arrange a trip to swim with dolphins, have a private picnic on an adjacent island, or explore the area on a bicycle. To keep in shape, work out in the resort’s private gym; and for relaxation afterward, treat yourself to an Asian massage or other spa services, or simply relax with a DVD and snacks. Whether it’s gourmet dining under the stars, gazing at priceless art and treasures from Asia on display throughout the resort, or using the convenience of high-speed Internet to gloat to all your friends who aren’t with you (!)…you’ll long remember your trip to “paradise” at Nandana.
