The Premises 

Welcome to the hotel of your island-luxe fantasies: set on a palm-studded private estate overlooking a marina, The Island House in Nassau is the Bahamas’ coolest hotspot. Lounge in the super spa, hit the in-house cinema, dine on first-rate fresh fish… or just laze by the pool and let the laid-back staff (clad in hipster check and double denim) hand you endless cocktails.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: 11am, but flexible, subject to availability. Earliest check-in, 3pm.
Rates don’t usually include breakfast (from $6).


Cinema, gym, yoga studio, squash court, free WiFi. In rooms: TV, free WiFi, air-conditioning, black-out curtains, hairdryer, minibar with wines, spirits, soft drinks and snacks.


Accepted, but not particularly catered to. It’s more of a grown-up hideout.


The only Bamford spa in the Bahamas is right here: book ahead (there are three treatment rooms) and luxuriate with a massage or facial from the thoroughly lovely staff.


You’ll find the large outdoor heated pool by the spa, flanked by classic white sunlougers.


On the fitness front, there’s more than the standard hotel gym here: sporty locals flock to the island’s only squash court, the anti-gravity yoga studio and the ballet barre classes. (The actual hotel gym itself is pretty impressive itself, too.)
The hotel has a 48-seat cinema: it shows recent releases daily, and – as all good cinemas should – has its own bar. Book a sofa for the plushest viewing experience.


Smoking is not permitted in our guest rooms or public areas. There is a $250.00 charge for smoking in our guest rooms. \nPET POLICY: A service animal is allowed in your guest room at no additional charge. Under no circumstance are pets allowed in common areas including the lobby bars cinema pool area and restaurants. \nAll rates are based on single/double occupancy there is an additional $75.00 charge per guest over 16 years old after the second person.


For the best views of the sun setting over the marina, book an Ocean-View Room on the second floor; if you’re more of a wake-up-and-stumble-straight-to-the-pool type, go for a Poolside Cottage.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Head to the hotel’s Mogano restaurant, where chef Giorgio Locatelli prepares Italian-inspired dishes with local ingredients, including squid ink tonnarelli, goat’s cheese ravioli sprinkled with black truffle, roasted cauliflower with homemade red pepper purée, and freshly caught chargrilled octopus. Find Asian fare at Shima, where you can dine on tabiko rolls, sashimi, tataki, and dumplings while admiring the cyan-cast shores of Lyford Cay Marina. For breakfast, Yellowbell serves buttermilk pancakes, french toast, and eggs any which way, during lunch an array of salads, poke bowls, burgers, and dumplings are on offer. If you’re looking for a quick takeaway meal, visit Island Pizza for a fresh wood-fired pizza on the patio.

Liquid Bliss 

Light bites and espoke cocktails with names like Into the Mystic, Curious George and Say Less are available at Yellowbell until 11pm, Sunday to Thursday. Shima and Mogano also both offer an extensive wine list with dinner; Shima does a number of cocktails, too.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Finally ready to tear yourself away from the pool, the cinema and the spa? It's time to get acquainted with your surroundings. Head out on a Bahamian art and cuisine expedition with Islandz Tours, perhaps, or explore the Exumas (and feed stingrays) on a private day trip with Power Boat Adventures. Not quite wild enough? Go diving with sharks or discover the wrecks surrounding New Providence with Stuart Cove.


You can’t get a better setting: Nassau’s the accessible central hub of the Bahamas' string of islands, and the hotel's just outside the city.


Touch down at Lynden Pindling International Airport (it’s just a three-hour flight from New York, and around half an hour from Miami). From there, the Island House is just 15 minutes away.


There’s free valet parking on-site.
