Luxury bepoke holidays to Pink Sands, Bahamas

Lying on one of the most beautiful stretches of pink sand beach in the Bahamas, the Pink Sands hotel has welcomed guests for more than 40 years and was designed by Biba founder Barbara Hulanicki. Pink Sands is located on charming Harbour Island, just one and a half miles off the northern coast of Eleuthera. Amid 18 acres of lush gardens of palms, bougainvillaea and other tropical flowers and shrubs, the 25 Pink Sands bedrooms are situated in pretty pastel cottages with classic Bahamian roofs and shutters. The highest standards of modern comfort are offered in the rooms at the Pink Sands hotel; you will find air conditioning, DVD players, pressurised water systems and a wet bar with mini-fridge. The real charm of Pink Sands, however, lies in the interior design: inside, there are rough-cut Italian marble floors with rugs, local artwork and oversized Adirondack furniture, set against a mellow wash of baby pink and baby blue, while the private patios boast fine teak furniture. On the door step of the Pink Sands resort, the Bahamas' famous pink sand beach stretches for 3 miles so there is plenty of space for privacy and marvelling at the brilliant turquoise of the sea. Dining here at Pink Sands is of a Bahamian flavour, executed with the talents of an internationally recognised chef, so that a fusion of Caribbean, East Asian and Indian styles is to be experienced. One of the finest and most charming hotels in the Bahamas, the Pink Sands resort is immensely popular with those visiting one of the most beautiful spots in the Caribbean. Early booking is strongly recommended.

About Bahamas

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Bahamas contains all the stunning environment, sunshine, activities and relaxation expected of a Caribbean beach holiday. With over 700 islands of varying sizes of soft golden-white sands and clear blue-green waters, the Bahamas offers a range of luxury holiday possibilities from quite commercial resorts of large purpose-built hotels to quainter, more characterful and secluded places on out­standing beaches. Scrub and wispy casuarina pines are the natural vegetation on the low-lying coral limestone islands of the Bahamas where the highest point is rarely 50ft above sea level. The gulf stream washes the shores and all islands are known for their clear waters and soft banks of sand. New Providence with its capital Nassau has the obvious links with Britain with Government House and the regular changing of the guard. New Providence also has superb beaches and is more commercial than the Out Islands. Eleuthera, one of the Out Islands, has a much slower pace of life. Water sports including diving, boating and fishing are to be had on all the islands of the Bahamas and there are good golf courses.

Highlights of the Bahamas

Nassau with its pink neo-classical buildings including Government House, the Straw Market in Nassau, Versailles gardens Pink Beach with its miles of delicately shaded pink sand on the Harbour island, Eleuthera. Pineapple festival in Gregory Town, Eleuthera, Conch fritters, salad and chowder, local pineapple, rum cocktails called Yellow Bird and Goombay Smash, Junkanoo festival on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, Goombay festival starting in June, scuba diving to see flower corals and carpet anemone, swimming with dolphins. The underwater ‘Grand Canyon’ on Andros Island which is home to pilot whales and whale sharks.

Travel within the Bahamas

Car hire is available on most of the islands as are motor scooters and bicycles. You can take the BahamasAir flights to many of the main islands. New Providence with the capital Nassau is quite commercialised but the Out Islands have a much slower pace of life. Well worth combining a stay in Nassau or New Providence with some time on Eleuthera (Harbour Island) as well to get a feel for the Bahamian way of life.
