I recently explored The Bahamas, a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, located a short 50 miles off the coast of Florida. The Bahamas are comprised of over 700 breathtaking islands and cays, with the clearest turquoise water you can imagine!
When most people think of The Bahamas, the first thing that comes to mind is Nassau or one of the larger islands. But on this trip I was able to get off the beaten path and explore Eleuthera, a smaller and less developed island. Eleuthera is a unique destination that is laid-back, serene, and untouched with stunning beaches!
When visiting Eleuthera I highly recommend staying at The Cove It is perfectly located right on the beach surrounded by swaying palms and white sand coves. It is secluded, seductive and stylish, offering five-star impeccable service. Every luxury that you could want is at your fingertips!
The intimate, 57-room resort has a selection of stylish seaside cottages and villas, embraced by endless turquoise waters.
Each suite is decorated in a chic and modern style, with neutral tones and clean white lines complemented by luxury amenities like: air conditioning, enormous and comfortable beds, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, ultra-modern furnishings, large flat screen TV’s, Wi-Fi and luxurious bathrooms.
Some suites even have their own plunge pool!
All of the villas feature amazing beachfront views that you can enjoy from the comfort and privacy of your bed or outdoor patio.
The property has a beautiful infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea as well as private white sand beaches that are available only to hotel guests.
There is full beach service throughout the day with lounge chairs, towels and food & drinks and the staff are extremely friendly, exhibiting that warm hospitality that the Bahamian people are so well known for!
There is also a bevy of activities to keep you busy including: snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, biking, horseback riding, and scuba diving!
There is a fitness center and spa on property as well as a gourmet restaurant that serves excellent sushi. Their kitchen uses only sustainable produce and vegetables from their own gardens and locally sourced seafood.
Be sure to arrive in style and on your own schedule! Nothing is more Luxe than taking a private plane straight from Miami for the short 50-minute flight.
Once you’ve arrived, make sure to carve out time to explore every hidden gem of this beautiful island. The Cove offers Jeep rentals on property, so you can explore on your own! I suggest visiting The Glass Window Bridge, which offers amazing panoramic views of the rich blue Atlantic Ocean and the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The contrast between the two bodies of water is truly amazing.
After that, head over to the Queen’s Bath on the Atlantic Ocean. Here you will find natural pools that you can soak in with crystal clear water that has been naturally warmed by the sun.
Finally, make sure to visit the Blue Hole. This is one the most beautiful cenotes that I have ever seen and if you’re brave enough – leap in!
Eleuthera is a destination not to be missed! If you’d like to start planning your honeymoon or vacation to The Cove please email me. Not only will you be VIP guests but you will receive complimentary breakfast daily, a $100 hotel credit, plus top priority for room upgrades.
