Best Nassau Hotels

Nassau Introduction

Capital of the Bahamas, Nassau is set on the island of New Providence, a white sand, turquoise sea retreat. The city is a cultural hub with a mixture of modern and colourful colonial architecture and often hosts elaborate street parades and exhibitions of folk art. A popular stop for cruise ships, the city sits next to many peaceful beaches, which contrast with the busy streets nearby.

Hotels in Nassau

Most Nassau hotels are on the seafront, taking advantage of the views over sparkling blue seas. You'll find a number of luxury hotels in Nassau, some of which have private beaches for a peaceful break, or perhaps cabanas giving you a shady spot to relax. These 4 and 5-star hotels have outdoor pools, restaurants and bars, with rooms that feature air conditioning and premium bedding for a restful sleep. If you're looking for cheaper Nassau hotel rates look for smaller inland guesthouses, which often have extras such as free WiFi and provide a free continental or Bahamian breakfast.

Where to stay

Downtown Nassau sits along a busy wharf full of fishing boats and has busy criss-crossing roads. Full of colourful colonial architecture and palm tree-lined streets, this lively area is a cultural hub for the Bahamas. From art galleries to museums and historic buildings, downtown Nassau is the place to visit to learn more about the culture of the islands. Head towards the wharf and you'll find the covered Straw Market, which has stalls heaving with tie-dyed T-shirts, handwoven straw bags and other handmade souvenirs that tourists love. Prince George Wharf is one of the busiest cruise ship ports in the world, so wander along and watch the huge boats coming in to dock.

Things to see

Many Nassau reviews rate Cable Beach among the best on the island. Close to the city, it boasts crystal clear waters and some of the best hotels in Nassau can be found along this sandy 2.5 mile stretch. With a casino and golf course nearby, it's a lively spot, and at night the resorts open their bars so there's a party atmosphere. The Queen's Staircase was carved in limestone by slaves and is surrounded by palm trees and lush ferns. Get to the top and you'll enjoy skyline views out as far as the ocean. Exotic island species can be found at Ardastra Gardens, a serene park full of flamingos, parrots and other colourful birds. Take a stroll down the shady paths and birds will often fly towards you asking for treats. There are also monkeys, tigers and rare animals to be spotted as you wander around.

Lynden Pindling International Airport has direct flights arriving from the USA, Canada and the rest of the Bahamas. Just 25 minutes from the downtown area, the easiest way to travel in Nassau is by taxi, or you can book a private shuttle.
