Bahama House Hotel

The Bahamas

Bahama House 0314

Experience old-world charm in all its glory on Harbour Island. A coral-hued property dating back to the 1800s, Bahama House occupies a prime spot by its namesake harbour, past rows of pastel colonial homes and stretches of blush pink sands.

Nine rooms and two private cottages are embellished in motifs of parrots, seashells and starfish, with vintage rattan rugs, canopied four-poster beds and cane loungers looking out on to palm-fringed gardens. The likes of guava pastries and mahi-mahi eggs Benedict are best enjoyed on the terrace or by a freshwater pool equipped with a tiki bar, and washed down with a strong Bahamian coffee. Then head out to scuba dive with stingrays, water-ski the turquoise lagoons or try your hand at deep-sea fishing. Prefer to stay on land? Live music jaunts and quaint cafés in Dunmore Town won’t disappoint.

Doubles from £371; property buyout (22 guests) from £7,410. 00 1 970 237 5985,
