A Legendary Boutique Hotel in The Bahamas

It’s just you and the most beautiful pool in The Bahamas, sipping on a Goombay Smash, surrounded by the towering palm trees of the hills of Old Nassau. 

Dinner’s a few hours away, with a Chateaubriand on the outdoor menu, followed by a late-night cognac with a house-made cigar. 

This is Graycliff, the iconic luxury hotel in the heart of Nassau, and it’s open and welcoming guests. 

The hotel, which has 20 guest rooms, is set just a few steps from Government House in the idyllic streets above the capital, and has long been a haven for celebrities and historical figures, from Winston Churchill to Jay Z. 

And in the age of social distancing, a luxury boutique hotel like this is the perfect prescription. 

This is a hotel for the bon vivant, a place for gourmands, a destination for those appreciate the true fundaments of luxury.

And even the heart of the capital, it’s a quiet, serene oasis, a place where you can remove, where you can step back and stay inside a veritable bubble of indulgence and comfort.

The wine cellar is the third largest private collection on earth.

That means Graycliff’s celebrated puros, rolled at the on-site factory by a team of rollers from Cuba; the spectacular, authentic Neapolitan pizza at Giotto; truffles from the Graycliff Chocolatier; and wine from the third-largest wine cellar on earth or from the new Bahama Barrels, the only winery in The Bahamas.

And that’s the beauty of it — it’s all here, all in once place, meaning you can come here and just stay here — going on a gastronomic journey under the palm trees.

You can travel the world and not find any boutique hotel quite like it.
