17 Oct Kyle’s Review of Sandals Royal Bahamian
Our travel expert Kyle Smith and his wife Kat just returned from a stay at Sandals Royal Bahamian. This all-inclusive, adults-only property is located in Nassau, Bahamas. Read more on what they thought about this property below!
Firstly, Kat & Kyle loved that Nassau was such an easy and quick trip from Omaha. They flew out of Eppley Airfield in the morning and arrived in Nassau at noon. This makes it perfect for a short getaway – they stayed four nights. This wasn’t just any quick trip, however! Sandals Royal Bahamian is a sophisticated and elegant European property. In fact, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor used to stay here quite often! Kyle & Kat stayed in a Club Level Garden View Suite in Windsor Tour, which I can only assume is named after the famed royal couple.
Sandals Island: Sandals Royal Bahamian’s Exclusive Private Island
One of the most amazing aspects of Sandals Royal Bahamian is their exclusive private offshore island, aptly named Sandals Island. It is only five minutes by Sandals boat from the resort. The island has all of the amenities you’d expect at a five-star resort, including a private beach and pool, two restaurants, and even nightly entertainment. This is also a great place for snorkeling or simply relaxing in a hammock or private cabana.
Guests of the property can enjoy two sky-sized pools overlooking the emerald sea. There is also a lagoon-style pool on Sandals Island.
Once you tire of the pool, check out some of the other activities offered at Sandals Royal Bahamian. Sandals offers one of the most comprehensive scuba diving programs anywhere. Plus, it’s all included! If scuba diving isn’t your thing, check out the wide variety off water sports available to you. All water sports are included here, including water-skiing and waterboarding, tubing, snorkeling, and much more. Sandals also has their own fleet of glass bottom boats.
5-Star Global Gourmet™ Dining
In addition, the property serves their signature 5-Star Global Gourmet™ dining at 10 specialty restaurants – yes, 10! Kyle & Kat loved Gordon’s on the Pier, which sits over the water and is open for dinner only. This “Seafood Lover’s Paradise” brings a unique twist to seafood dishes, from classics like Surf & Turf, to saffron-infused seafood Bouillabaisse. If you are in the mood for an absolute feast, order the Grilled Reef Crustacean Platter. This platter includes fresh, fire-grilled crustaceans with lemon butter sauce and lobster bisque. This is a great romantic spot to watch the sunset:
Kyle & Kat decided to explore a bit of the nearby town during their stay in Nassau. They visited the straw market and fish fry which is an area full of beach bars and authentic food:
