Nandana is located directly on a clear turquoise blue water bay at the far West End of Grand Bahama Island. The estate is set within an exclusive gated enclave offering the ultimate in privacy and security.
“Nandana” (which means Paradise in the ancient tongue of Sanskrit) is a large luxury estate on a secluded beach near West End, Grand Bahama. Our luxurious and exceedingly private villa compound is a fully staffed island home specifically created for intimate gatherings of up to twelve family members or friends.
Nandana goes beyond the traditional villa vacation by providing guests with a wide range of luxury resort services, amenities, and activities. These include gourmet cuisine, on-site masseuse and full spa services, 120′ infinity pool, Jacuzzi, Jet Skis, ATVs, nearby golf course, beach volleyball, and more.
Designed by a renowned architectural firm in an Asian beach house style, the property is comprised of six separate buildings. A spectacular main house with soaring 40′ ceilings is surrounded by five richly-appointed and free-standing bedroom suites. The interior of the property has been constructed entirely of natural materials, with massive amounts of imported Burmese teak covering the floors, walls, and ceilings and natural stone forming most other surfaces. A professionally designed lighting system has been installed to emphasize the property’s many distinctive architectural features.
The buildings are centered around a glittering 120′ long infinity pool with a waterfall edge dropping to a private sandy beach below. A separate large outdoor Jacuzzi is located overlooking the beach, and the entire compound is shaded by over 300 imported palm trees and tropical plants. The property is bounded in the front by the ocean with a protected sandy beach and in the rear by a deep water canal with private docking facilities for yachts up to 115′ in length.
12 Guests Maximum
The main building contains the primary socializing areas, including living areas, dining room, kitchen, bar, and glass-enclosed wine room.
Standing on either side of the main building and directly on the beach are two exceptionally large one-bedroom Pavilion suites. Each is in excess of 1000 square feet and contains a luxury bath with a tub, indoor/outdoor shower, walk-in closet, writing desk, mini bar, and private sundeck with chaises overlooking the sea.

Each Bangala Suite offers more than 750 square feet of luxurious living space with a bedroom, sitting area, large bath with indoor/outdoor shower, writing desk, and mini-bar.
