If you can imagine a tropical resort so stunning and luxurious that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor made it the location for the famed Balmoral Club in the 1940s, youâ€™re close to imagining the amazing Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa and Resort. The perfect base for an unforgettable holiday in the Bahamas, surrounded by stunning white sand beaches and beautiful tropical vegetation, the Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa and Resort canâ€™t be beaten for an incredible luxury holiday. With access to its own private offshore island, you can be sure that youâ€™ll feel completely secluded from the worries of everyday life at this hotel.Despite its tropical seclusion, the hotel is just eleven miles and thirty minutes away from Nassau International Airport. Even before you arrive at the hotel youâ€™ll be taken in by Nassau, as itâ€™s a tropical idyll right at the heart of the Bahamas. Once youâ€™ve arrived at the hotel, you can relax with a view over the beach or the resortâ€™s stunning gardens, or have a quick massage at the spa to recover from your long journey. There are a range of rooms, but more than half of the resort is made up of suites with sea views and the highest level of service that you would expect from a Sandals resort.Itâ€™s unlikely that youâ€™ll want to leave this stunning resort, and with ten restaurants available for you to choose from itâ€™s unlikely that youâ€™ll need to! From the beautiful art nouveau decor at the Baccarat restaurant to the elegant Japanese style of Kimonos, even the different decoration of the restaurants on offer is sure to please, not to mention the fabulous food. If you fancy a quick nightcap or want a relaxing drink in the afternoon, the nine bars should keep you refreshed! The Royal Bahamian Spa and Resort may once have been the home of the Balmoral Club, but itâ€™s hard to see how this hotel could be any more fit for royalty.
