Picture swimming up to a bar, ordering a ginger martini and sipping it in the shade of a palm tree on a pristine beach in The Bahamas. Sound appealing? We suspect that you need a holiday, which is why we’ve teamed up with Sandals Resorts to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a relaxing week for two at Sandals Royal Bahamian on the beautiful, 21-mile-long New Providence Island.

This prize includes a seven-night stay at the resort for two people, return economy flights from London Gatwick and resort transfers. Sandals Royal Bahamian is a Luxury Included® resort, which means you and your lucky guest will enjoy all-inclusive five-star global gourmet food as well as unlimited premium spirits and wines. Accommodation is in a deluxe room with a king-sized bed. The decor draws inspiration from the colonial era. Expect elegant dark-wood furniture and touches of traditional fabric, offset by very modern luxuries such as rain-head showers and flat-screen televisions.

Gourmands will fall in love with the vast array of international dining experiences on offer. Discover Caribbean favourites at Spices, where the signature dish of red pea soup is a love letter to the exotic produce that grows on these islands, from searing scotch bonnet peppers to rich coconut milk. Split a shellfish platter at Gordon’s On The Pier, a stilted restaurant with open sides that allow the warm evening breezes and sound of the waves to drift in, or don your formalwear for Baccarat, which serves award-wining French cuisine.

The resort’s offshore island is also home to a chic beach club, where you can enjoy a pool, whirlpool, swim-up bar and the region’s best seafood house, all alongside 180-degree views of the sparkling blue ocean. While away the days in shaded hammocks or private cabanas, and spend your evenings lingering beside the hypnotic fire pit in the Zen garden.

If you do manage to peel yourself off your sun lounger, you’ll enjoy complimentary land and water sports. Try your hand at tennis, become skipper of your own boat or glide over colourful sponges on a paddle board. If you happen to hold a PADI diving qualification, you can also take part in up to two free dives per day. The residents of the many coral reefs in the area certainly know how to put on a show. Warm waters nurture a dizzying array of wildlife, from sea turtles to sharks.

Be sure to set aside a day to explore Nassau itself. With its appealingly faded pink and white architecture and honking jitneys, this vibrant capital throbs with energy. On Saturday mornings, Doongalik Farmers’ Market is well worth a visit for its stalls piled high with local produce, while an evening stroll through Arawak Cay will reveal beach bars swinging to the strains of live jazz.

Sandals Royal Bahamian commands a prime swathe of the pearl-white sand of Cable Beach, arguably one of the best in Nassau, and it is also only a coconut’s toss from its very own private island. A short boat ride will take you to two beaches that offer something for everyone. One is a tranquil oasis that is perfect for peaceful sun worshipping, while the other is among the best snorkelling spots in the Bahamas.
