R&R at the New Nandana Private Resort in The Bahamas…Just What the Doctor Ordered

Posted By Lainey Johnson on January 5th, 2010

After endless entertaining, guests galore and playing hostess with the mostess for the past month, it’s time for a little R&R! And thank goodness because only 65 miles fromthe South Florida coast lies Nandana, an exceedingly private oceanfront estate standing majestically on the west end of Grand Bahama island. And it’s just screaming your name.

The ultimate hideaway for today’s global jet set, Nandana Resort is a newly completed luxury group of villas located on a secluded beach near West End, Bahamas. Designed in Asian beach house style, it’s made up of six individual buildings including a spectacular central main house with soaring 40 inch ceilings surrounded by five villas each containing private bedroom suites.

The property is bounded in the front by the ocean with a protected sandy beach and in the rear by a deep- water canal allowing access to the property by large yachts. Extensively landscaped with over 300 imported palm trees of numerous varieties, you’ll have no problem escaping for some discrete hanky panky.

And it’s not just fabulous accommodations indoors, a variety of outdoor activities are right at your fingertips. From deep-sea fishing aboard the 43-foot sport yacht, “Lioness,” to shark diving to private plane trips to Bimini to channeling your inner Tiger Woods (the athletic side that is) at the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, there’s nothing short of adventure at this private paradise.

And when you arrive back, oh adventurous one, enjoy a pre-dinner massage followed by sunset cocktails along the 120-inch infinity pool overlooking the sea. At night, put on your poker face at the nearby casino or heat up the evening with a walk on the moonlit beach.

There is a 5,100-foot landing strip allowing guests to arrive by private jet (only one hour from Miami) and a deep-water canal leading to two sheltered on-site docks able to harbor a pair of 100-foot yachts.

Balancing the private nature of the property is the world-class guest service. On-property staff provides the services of an estate manager, concierge, chef, masseuse, personal housekeeper, butler, chauffeur and boat captain. Every detail, from pillow-top beds enshrouded in fine Italian linens to gourmet menus tailor-made to guest preferences, has been designed for a totally relaxing and completely private getaway.
