The Destination
Standing out can be hard in a country with hundreds of islands, but Grand Bahama Island manages to shine as one of the gems of the archipelago. Miles of sparkling-white beaches give way to warm blue waters in a place that feels a world away, but is actually just 75 miles off the coast of Florida. Here, the two major towns of Freeport and Lucaya move at an easy pace, and the Lucayan National Park's marine caves and tropical forests make Grand Bahama Island a destination for eco-tourism.

The Digs
Facing the wide swath of white sand on Lucayan Beach—one of the cleanest in the Bahamas—the Grand Lucayan brings the low-key island some uncommon panache. The resort is arguably the island's finest and has the numbers to prove it, offering eight restaurants and bars, three pools, an 18-hole golf course, and four tennis courts, not to mention a spa, fitness center, children's program, and a slew of daily resort activities. Its 542 guest rooms are decked out with Caribbean décor in a cool palette, and many show off ocean views from private balconies.

The Diversions
With a full-service spa and specialty treatments like the seasonal facial—prepared with organic fruits, herbs, and exotic spices—indulgence is always on the menu. Wade over to Hammerheads, where a bounty of frosty drinks and snacks are a lap away, or clear your mind as you float in the pool. If a shuffle through the sand makes you yearn for a closer peek at marine life, head to the Underwater Explorers Society to dive alongside 14 bottlenose dolphins. Dinner calls for a platter of West Indies-inspired cuisine like cracked conch drizzled with spicy sauce from Iries.

  • "We recently stayed at the Grand Lucayan and found the staff, accommodations, and environment excellent! This hotel is ideal for getting away from the crowds, especially if you enjoy being immersed into a tropical paradise."
