Bahamas Golf Vacation On Great Exuma.
By Jason Law,
Bahamas Golf Vacation, staying in a top class Resort and Spa on Grand Exuma could be the best of both worlds. Golf for the golfers, and the Resort and Spa for the non golfers, and of course for après golf too!! It is situated within the 500 acre Emerald Bay Resort.
The Grand Isle Resort and Spa could be the perfect answer, consisting of seventy eight luxuriously appointed and spacious 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom villas, with either a view of the golf course or the ocean. The golf course was designed by Greg Norman, and in addition there are six floodlit tennis courts and a state of the art fitness centre.
The villas all have a large fully equipped kitchen , a separate living area, a wrap around patio or a balcony. Every villa has plasma flat screen TV in every room, a DVD player, and Sub-Zero appliances, with complimentary WI-Fi Internet access, transport to and from the airport and breakfast every day.
You can organize a local chef to come in and prepare dinner, and that is a very worthwhile thing to afford.
For once the villas live up to their billing, and you will find them very much as they look in photographs on the website. They are certainly worth the money.
Grand Isle Resort and Spa is a really luxurious Caribbean Experience with a magnificent Pool Pavilion as a kind of centerpiece. It overlooks on one side the golf course, and the other the Atlantic Ocean. There is a huge free form infinity pool, and a heated outdoor whirlpool, with an open air bar overlooked by the spa and fitness facility. It really needs to be seen to be believed.
The superb soft white sand beach is reached via natural stone steps from the pool area, and the sea is warm clear and clean, protected by an offshore reef. One of the best features of Grand Exuma in fact are the series of lovely beaches
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at the Pallappa Bar and Grill which overlooks the pool pavilion, and the main emphasis is on locally caught fish and shellfish. One slight difficulty is the fact that whilst you have a beautifully equipped kitchen in your villa, and you could easily cook for yourself, were there not a lack of good food in the market across the road, or in town for that matter. It is strongly recommended that you hire a car for the duration of your stay so you can spread your wings on the lovely island that is Great Exuma
The Grand Isle Resort and Spa sits right next door to The Four Seasons which has several restaurants and a casino. As all the villas come with their own golf cart it isn't difficult to go there to eat if you get bored on site.
