The Bahamas Has A New Relais & Chateaux Hotel

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 14, 2020

The Bahamas has a new Relais & Chateaux hotel. 

The luxury Tiamo resort on Andros Island has officially joined the culinary hotel collection.

The move will officially take effect Aug. 1, according to Wilfried Vincent, general manager of Tiamo. 

The “eco-chic” boutique hotel can be reached only by boat or seaplane, with a mix of 11 villa and two rooms, all built in the traditional Bahamian style, along with a signature spa. 

The property’s culinary offerings include the Great Room eatery, a pair of bars including a beach bar, and a “Starlight Dinner” offering as well.

Tiamo can only be accessed by boat or seaplane.

It’s a boost for Andros, The Bahamas’ capital of adventure, an island known for its legendary small resorts, from Tiamo to the Small Hope Bay Lodge and Swains Cay Lodge, among others. 

“We are delighted to announce our affiliation with the circle of Relais & Chateaux,” Vincent said in a statement. “I want to associate with this all employees of the resort, who share their local knowledge daily to best meet the needs of our international clientele.”

The property joins a growing portfolio of Relais & Chateaux member hotels in the Caribbean that now includes the Eden Roc Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic; the Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel in Grenada; Hotel Le Toiny in St Barth; Quintessence Hotel in Anguilla and Secret Bay in Dominica (the latter is the most recent addition to Relais & Chateaux’s Caribbean collection, having joined late last year).
