Grand Isle Resort & Spa in Emerald Bay, Bahamas
On the Bahaman island of Great Exuma, surrounded by the crystal waters of the Atlantic, is Grand Isle Resort & Spa, part of the Lifestyle collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts. Located on stunning Emerald Bay, with its shimmering white sand beaches, this resort is truly a little piece of paradise. With 78 spacious villas, each elegantly crafted with vibrant earth tones and a comfortable beach atmosphere, you will instantly fall into the tranquil island atmosphere. Marble soaking tubs and fine linens ensure your comfort, while the view from your private terrace will take your breath away. Imagine cosmopolitan modern elegance meets secluded beach bungalow and you will picture the fabulous Grand Isle Resort & Spa.
Head straight from your villa to the water's edge at Emerald Bay Beach and dive in to start off your day. Glide through the sunken underwater trails while snorkeling at the resort's one-mile, underground coral reef, or dive 75 feet straight down at the popular and striking Exuma Wall. If you prefer to experience the Bahamas by boat, island hop through the Exuma Cays, or wade along one of the myriad beautiful sand bars. For some fantastic fishing take a boat on the open water and make a catch from the deep sea, or head to the reefs for an exciting day of bonefishing. For a more relaxing day, head to Sea Star Spa and melt your stresses away with a Swedish massage or refreshing seaweed wrap. For a great meal, head to the The Palappa Grill. Overlooking the pool and bay, this outdoor restaurant is the perfect place to relax and enjoy contemporary American cuisine or fresh local seafood dishes. For a wonderfully romantic dinner for two (or a gathering of up to twelve), partake of the private dining option at The Overlook. Choose your menu, and a main course, and a chef will prepare and serve your meal in the private mini-palapa. At the Grand Isle Resort & Spa, luxury and comfort are the focus of your stay, and with the elegant accommodations and beautiful natural surroundings, you are sure to be delighted.

Reviews for Grand Isle Resort & Spa
Had an amazing time - luxury condo benefits with some hotel like amenities. The beach, pool and rooms are all stunning and every staff person we encountered couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. My kids loved it, and it is somewhere I'd come back to with just my partner.

I would never recommend going here ever. First of all you are in the middle of no where! It is a good 20-30 min taxi ride to get to any activity. Secondly the restaurant on the resort is it complete garbage. The food is very overpriced and the staff is very slow and understaffed. (You wonder why they automatically add on in 15% gratuity to the check). Bottom line go somewhere else and save your money.
If you are going to the Exumas, then you should consider staying here. The resort is filled with helpful staff (try to find Neshelle), the food is well prepared and delicious (Cracked Bahamian Lobster - YES). The rooms are so well appointed and stylish that I would seriously consider redoing my house to match. The property sits on a bluff overlooking Emerald Bay (which it surely is) and there is coral-reef snorkeling directly off the beach. Reading about the snorkeling gives you the impression that some people were disapointed saying it was not that good. Well, the reef is a series of coral heads that are nearly as long as the peninsula the resort sits on, so you do have to swim out far to see the better stuff (eg., 2-foot wide purple sea fans, big and small fish eg., Bahamian groupers and Barracuda). Well worth your time in the water!! Definitely rent the golf cart if you are staying back a bit on the property. You should realize that food on the island is generally scarce. The convenience stores and other markets get food shipments on Tues and they only have a few things for a few days. I was considering doing what some have suggested (fill a suitcase in Nassau before departure) the next time we go. Additionally, it may be possible to use some ship-direct companies (have not found someone who has done this though). Otherwise you need to eat at a restaurant or have the resort stock your Fridge (which they will do at a cost). We took a Full Day boat tour that the concierge helped set up for us with Ty (Captain) who runs @SunFunToursExuma and owns @Tyssunsetbarandgrill (see my other reviews). This is a deal since the marina is directly across the street from Grand Isle. Additionally, make sure to ask about how to visit Coco Plum Beach Don't be surprised if the directions to get there are a bit off, though (there is no sign but there is a big blue block of cement at the turn off (you will see)). Fantastic trip!!

We went to Grand Isle Resort &Spa on Sunday August 6 th as a day pass. It cost $50.00 US for adults to be able to use all the accomodations of the resort, the pool, beach long chairs with umbrellas, beach towels .The resort is cosy and very well maintained. The view is spectacular and we were able to go snorkeling at the site .The beach is share withe the clients of the Sandals. We enjoy very much The Palapa Grill restaurant . Excellent service 5 stars provided by our new friend Leon Baptiste our waiter and the food was exquisite. The Bahamian Conch Fritters, with their Nassau Royale Calypso sauce, made with their best island Pepper sauce of Melda Ferguson, (Kitchen Fergie). Their island Conch chowder ,shrimp bites and grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich are awesome. My friend took the Gaspacho and Caesar salad that was exquisite. All the staff at the Grand Isle are so nice starting with Rogers, at the reception that made us visit and greeted us so nicely. On our second visit the manager Jimion Yarde and Shavar were our other excellent service table waiters when we came back on Satuday the 12 th august .We really enjoyed our short stay at the Grand Isle Resort and Palapa Grill and we will be back as all the staff there are unforgettable people.

Great accommodations, helpful staff, beautiful views. Next door to Sandals which is helpful for sailing and golf. The only issue is dining. You can either eat at the restaurant here at Grand Isle or pay $50 one way into town. (The restaurant at Grand Isle is fantastic though) Highly recommend staying here.
