Grand Isle Resort

Be pampered and put at ease in the most stunning of settings. Get ready to drink in the sun and swim into stunning Emerald Bay views in the infinity-edge pool. Sit down to a menu of authentic Caribbean cuisine always paired with delightful turquoise waters and island breezes at the al fresco poolside restaurant. Kids play the island way with the Hummingbird Hut team while your seawater-infused treatment provides the ultimate adult relaxation. Grand Isle Resort harmoniously blends private villa luxury and service with the exceptional amenities you can expect at a AAA Four Diamond Award resort.


The Marina at Emerald Bay is the ultimate yachting paradise, guaranteed to elevate the island luxury experience Exuma has to offer. The 23 acres of deep-water marina boasts 150 slips that accommodate yachts of up to 260 ft. in length and features a multitude of exceptional amenities like Bellingham floating docks. During your visit, you can also enjoy exquisite cuisine at the dockside restaurant, relax in the private clubhouse, or adventure out into the stunning 18-hole championship golf course adjacent to the marina.


Located adjacent to Grand Isle Resort & Spa, enjoy more than just postcard views of the Emerald Reef Golf Club.  Special greens fees for this 18-hole championship golf course designed by legendary PGA pro-Greg Norman are offered. The longest in the Caribbean, this challenging par-72 course plays to 7,001 yards with the front nine holes winding through seaside dunes and mangroves while the back nine hug the spectacular Emerald Bay peninsula.

Seastar Spa

Indulge your body and renew your sense of well-being at the SeaStar Spa, in the comfort of your villa, on the beach, or at the pool. Couples relax and unwind with side-by-side massages, treatments, and Champagne while youngsters 12 and under are treated to a scoop of ice cream with their Mini Mani and Mini Pedi.

The seawater-infused, Elemis-branded treatments bring the art of Thalassotherapy and marine healing to your spa experience. Algae, coconut, Frangipani, ginger scrubs, and wraps exfoliate and rehydrate your skin while anti-aging and rejuvenation facials incorporate enzyme serums and organic seaweed derivatives with immediate results.


Every meal is a feast with fresh seafood, local ingredients, fragrant herbs, and rich island spices elevating the Bahamian-fusion cuisine. The Bahamian Dinner Night and Island BBQ & Junkanoo Bonfire on the Beach are weekly celebrations of flavor and the new 23° North Beach Club offers an air-conditioned and elegant Asian-Bahamian twist that is not found at any other Exuma resort. Of course, your luxury villa features a gourmet kitchen for your own delicious creations or a custom menu prepared by the chef.

23° North Beach ClubThe luxury beach club is also home to Grand Isle’s most new fine dining experience. Chef Hans Moncur, the Executive Director of Culinary, has created a sophisticated Bahamian-fusion menu with made-to-order creations of fresh flavors and ingredients. Breathtaking views, sensational cuisine, and the unmatched service you’ve come to expect at Grand Isle in a sophisticated air-conditioned space. In addition to lunch and dinner, you won’t want to miss the weekend brunch parties featuring live music and more.

Palapa RestaurantDining at Grand Isle Resort offers an authentic taste of the Caribbean, complete with tropical cocktails and fresh, local ingredients. Celebrated weekly the Bahamian Dinner Night and Island BBQ & Junkanoo Bonfire on the Beach are two not-to-be-missed dining experiences. Celebrate the tastes and traditions of the Bahamas poolside at Palapa, where fresh, local seafood is served alongside the ocean in a tropical outdoor setting. From Caribbean jerk-style seafood to delicious barbecue, flavorful island cuisine is served along with familiar American-style favorites.

Sandy Toes Just a few steps from your lounger to the most delicious slice of mouthwatering fun on the beach. Created with timbers of reclaimed wood, this little beach shack packs a flavorful punch serving authentic jerk — spicy, smoky, and just plain eat-with-your-fingers good. Bartenders are ready to pour your favorite icy refreshment. Play a round of corn hole, dance in the sand, and get acquainted and into the Exuma spirit.

Private DiningNo Exuma vacation is complete without an Al Fresco private dining experience overlooking the island’s breathtaking scenery. Enjoy your romantic dinner at the Overlook Palapa or Ocean View Terrace gazing out on Emerald Bay. Arrange with the Chef a special menu served under the stars. These private al fresco spaces are also beautiful settings for your special celebrations hosting up to 12 guests.

Whether you like to float above the reef with a snorkel or in a kayak, paddle on that board, or lie on it, you are always prepped to explore Emerald Bay’s inviting waters and colorful sea creatures from the mile-long beach.
