I was recently invited on a site inspection trip for travel consultants to experience several different resorts in the Bahamas. This was my first visit to the islands and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to get there and the amazingly beautiful beaches. You can leave the States in the morning and have your toes in the sand by lunchtime! I realized now that is so much more than just a cruise port of call on the way to the Caribbean. I would recommend the Bahamas to anyone looking for a resort destination that is close to home. With a variety of resorts and accommodations to suit all tastes and group sizes, the Bahamas appeal to everyone.
The Albany, a Luxury resort community
After landing at the Nassau International Airport, my first stop on New Providence Island is The Albany. This luxury resort community is an exclusive retreat for those looking for a quiet, secluded atmosphere, where you don't even have to leave the property if you do not want to.
Modern and sleek in design, this resort allows you to be as active or inactive as you want. Enjoy their world class fitness center or play a round of golf on the resort's course, designed by Ernie Els. Or do nothing at all and relax on a lounge chair at one of the pools or beach front, where you can be waited on hand and foot.
Perfect for multi-generational families or a group of friends, accommodations range from the contemporary marina residences, overlooking mega-yachts in the harbor, to comfortable and sophisticated beach houses ranging from two to five bedrooms. Every unit is different and we can help you pick the best one suited to your needs and desires at the time of booking. The Albany would be a great destination for a special anniversary or retirement celebration.
Once the resort is complete in the next few years, it will have a certain draw for well-to-do individuals looking for a retreat in the Bahamian Islands without having to stay at the mega-resort, Atlantis.
