Imagine hearing the soft hush of the ocean while looking behind you, where the resort you're staying at has mouth-watering food, a serene spa and access to recreational adventures you've only seen on nature programs.
This isn't an unobtainable dream, the Grand Isle Resort & Spa in Great Exuma is primed and ready for you to enjoy a vacation worthy of all the hard work you put in.
Visualize walking back to your private villa set amongst lush gardens, where you're greeted with a personal tropical paradise outfitted with the latest in technology, a fully appointed gourmet kitchen and a golf cart ready for you to explore the property on a whim. You might consider a brief nap in one of the elegant rooms at your private vacation home or take in some entertainment with the 56-inch plasma screen television, but adventure awaits and you're pining to swim with the sharks (if you can gather up the courage).
If coming face-to-face with rows of teeth doesn't quite sit well with you (even though they're friendly nurse sharks), there are tons of other recreational activities to participate in around Great Exuma. From feeding stingrays and snorkeling throughout the island’s collection of gorgeous coral reefs to exploring the waterways by boat and guided deep-sea fishing excursions, you'll find something that'll leave you with a story to tell and memories for a lifetime.
Back on land guests will also find a host of activities. Join in a pick-up game of beach volleyball or grab a complimentary kayak and explore the shore at your leisure. Relax next to the freeform infinity pool with a snack and cocktail from The Palapa Grill while you catch up on pleasure reading or just soak up the sun. The kids can also experience Caribbean adventures like beach treasure hunts, kite flying, snorkeling and building sand castles.
To really work out the kinks from your everyday life, you might want to schedule a trip to Grand Isle's SeaStar Spa. This retreat offers everything from deep massages and full-body treatments to beauty services like waxing, manicures and pedicures. Customizable spa packages will help you create a wave of heavenly bliss that'll leave you reinvigorated and ready to tackle your next island adventure.
Like everything else at the Grand Isle Resort & Spa, even mealtime is a treat at The Palapa Grill. Whether you're craving tropical cocktails or a full dining menu, this poolside restaurant prides itself on fresh ingredients and island dishes like Bahamian barbeque and Caribbean jerk-style seafood. In-villa dining is also available with a special menu of island flavors, perfect for an intimate meal with friends or family.
With so much to do and see around the resort and the surrounding Great Exuma, your vacation can be as exciting or relaxing as you want it to be and when you want it to be. Spectacular year-round weather and the impressive variety of excursions means you'll never be without a beach to relax on or an adventure to experience.
