Resort Spotlight: Sandals Royal Bahamian

A luxurious all-inclusive resort that delivers leisure in an oasis of ‘old world charm’ and understated elegance. Sandals Royal Bahamian looks out upon the crystal clear turquoise blue water of the Bahamas. A feeling of timeless elegance adorns the stately entrance and colorful bougainvillea that line the cobblestone driveway.

In 1946, the original resort ‘The Balmoral Club’ was created to be the playground for many of the royal friends of the then Governor of The Bahamas, the Duke of Windsor. The architecture portrays an elaborate sophistication; Roman columns and a large 25- foot tall statuary guard from the entrance to the porte-cochere. This resort embodies the charm of the Bahama’s and is by far the most luxurious all inclusive option on Paradise Island
