Fodor's Expert Review The Island House

Western Rd., Western New Providence, New Providence Island, Bahamas Fodor's Choice

The antithesis of the big resorts typically found in New Providence, The Island House delivers casual sophistication with high-end yet understated amenities and features at every turn. Some of the 30 rooms, which can be configured as one-, two-, or three-bedroom cottages, are situated in the heart of the new boutique resort, while others offer a greater degree of tranquility and privacy. All offer mahogany furnishings, limestone floors, rain showers, freestanding bathtubs, original Bahamian artwork, and private balconies or terraces. A few of the rooms even have fully private outdoor showers. On-site are four restaurants and bars, a 25-meter lap pool, a Movement Studio offering barre and yoga, and a fully equipped fitness center with two squash courts. There's even a 48-seat cinema showing a mix of indie and blockbuster films each night as well as a Bamford Spa with a mani-pedi room and three treatment rooms and an art gallery. Wi-Fi (accessible throughout the property) is complimentary.
