Fodor's Expert Review The Island House

Mahogany Hill, Western Rd., , New Providence Island, Bahamas

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 three restaurants, four bars, a 25-meter lap pool, the country's only Padel tennis court, a Movement Studio offering barre and antigravity 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. Wi-Fi (accessible in rooms) is complimentary.
