Fodor's Expert Review Kamalame Cay

Fodor's Choice

An all-inclusive resort with individual villas spaced along a 3-mile beach, the breathtaking and private 96-acre Kamalame Cay occupies a Bahamian pinnacle in luxury island retreats—and is surprisingly affordable. This well-kept secret offers adorable airy yellow and pink cottages and one- to four-bedroom villas spaced generously apart, with bright, open-plan kitchens, and living rooms with plush furnishings, wrapped around by shady and sun-splashed decks with stunning ocean views. On the sheltered lagoon side, delightful designer rooms are $525 per night (standard rate). Indeed, most cottages and villas average a similar rate when fully occupied. Pink Adirondacks, golf carts, and bicycles are standard with each room. Enjoy Kamalame’s exquisite dining by opting for the all-inclusive Guest of House plan that includes unlimited meals, daily continental breakfast basket delivered to your room, stocked in-room minibar, and beverages, spirits and house wines from The Great House or Tiki Bar. (Cellar wines and champagnes are available but not included.) Guest of House participants also receive discounted Kamalame's Bespoke Services and activities, and rates are $215 to $250 per person extra, according to your group's size. Served by a delightful staff, you'll feast on homemade breads, soups and desserts, imported fowl and viands, and imaginative fresh seafood, complemented by excellent wines. You can also choose to dine à la carte or self-cater with your villa's well-appointed kitchens. Amid towering, exotic gardens of palms, gumbo-limbos, and bougainvilleas, you can dine poolside at the Tiki Bar, in the Great House, or on the beach. Kamalame’s exceptionally beautiful waters make for splendid castaway island picnics, and bone- and deep-sea fishing. Its PADI dive center is ideal for diving and snorkeling for beginners and pros. This award-winning property is revered by The Bahamas's well-to-do, jet-setters, romantic couples and families. With its small marina, a few lucky yachters are learning the secret. Saunter along the beach's long dock to indulge in Kamalame’s deluxe overwater spa, which is oh-so-Maldives.
