Our First-Hand Experience

Our family was delighted to spend time here with the numerous activities and exceptional fishing in the area.  Josie caught her first bonefish here, a memory we cherish.  The waters were crystal clear blue and so beautiful to look at. Each morning our captain trailered our skiff to areas that fit our requested from the evening before.  Smooth rides to beautiful flats followed by catching beautiful bones.

Chef prepared meals with guests from all over the world sitting at the single long table allowed for stimulating conversations.  We swam in the infinity pool. Josie of course wanted lots of photos of her jumping in the air in the water which we of course obliged numerous times. Lunch out on the porch overlooking the private beach and blue water was a memory maker.

We took time to explore some of the outer islands like Harbor Town where we overnighted and rented a golf cart to explore the island.  We found hidden beach restaurants and beautiful beach front homes to admire.  Josie even won $200 at bingo at locals night on the dock restaurant in town.

Bahamas Luxury Lodge – Abaco

This Bahamas luxury lodge resort (boutique style) complete with lovely private beaches and a variety of activities in an idyllic wilderness location. Its guests enjoy the best of Bahamas bonefishing, brilliant birding, infinity pool, outer islands, shopping, scuba diving and snorkeling and a wide range other activities in one of the Bahamas’ hidden beauty spots.   Sure to please everyone in your group!Bahamas Luxury Lodge - Abaco

Surrounded on three sides by dense and pristine woodlands and coppice, the club is a haven for wildlife. In the nearby mangrove wetlands may be found a huge expanse of unspoiled bonefishing flats and superb habitat for a wide array of wading birds and other wild life.

Designed in the style of an 18th century colonial plantation house, with large wrap-around verandahs, the 8-bedroom hotel stands on a high ridge to catch the sea breezes and panoramic ocean views. It’s a romantic getaway, a luxury bonefish resort and a birder’s paradise all rolled into one.

Most guests come for a week, but shorter stays are possible. There is a very high level of repeat visits.  This elegant beachfront retreat is half an hour south of Marsh Harbour, which has an international airport with many direct flights to and from the US and Nassau each day.

The lodge is close to the world-class bonefishing flats of the Abaco Marls, where large numbers of uneducated bonefish provide fantastic sport for fly-fishermen in uncrowded waters. There are also superb white-sand wading flats at Cherokee Sound, where larger and more seasoned bone fish and occasional permit present a special challenge, and at Cross Harbour. With the right conditions, there can also be great fishing off the Club’s beach.

For birding, Abaco offers a wide range of avian habitats – an extensive coastline that attracts many migrants, then miles of mangrove wetlands, ancient pine forests and dense hardwood coppice. Over 280 species of birds have been recorded on the island. The lodge has published a large photo-book in the birds of Abaco.

There are many options for non-fishers and non-birders, both active and inactive. Diving over spectacular coral reefs; golf at Treasure Cay; guided snorkelling; big game fishing and miles of beachcombing along Abaco’s amazing sandy coastline.

For the less active, boat trips to the charming outer islands, with their picture-postcard colonial villages; massage and beauty treatments; shopping for local crafts in Marsh Harbour; or guided trips on sea or land to explore the amazing wild life and scenery of the Abacos.

Or guests can just completely chill out in the pool garden, on the beach or on one of the Club’s large verandahs, perhaps with a cool glass of Meursault, enjoying one of the world’s most pleasant climates and most beautiful seascapes.

Note that the lodge is not a hotel in any conventional sense. Its atmosphere and the way in which it is run are more akin to a private country house party, elegant yet informal – and very relaxed.

Accommodations & Meals

Designed in the style of an 18th century colonial plantation house, with large wrap-around verandahs, the 8-bedroom resort stands on a small hill to catch the sea breezes and panoramic ocean views. With beautiful gardens and a tranquil setting, it’s a romantic getaway, a luxury bonefish resort and a birder’s paradise all rolled into one.

The club overlooks an idyllic beach on the east coast of Great Abaco.  Quite apart from its beautiful sandy beach and turquoise seas, the club has a lovely pool, an eclectic library, a great wine cellar and a fabulous atmosphere.

Secluded, tranquil and surrounded by dense vegetation, the Lodge stands some fifty feet above sea level and offers panoramic views over the Atlantic.

The Great Room at the center of the house features an enormous dining table (which can seat over twenty people), a discreet honesty bar, abundant comfortable seating and, again, stunning views from its many glass doors. With fine antiques and an overhead gallery full of fishing paraphernalia, the Great Room is full of character and atmosphere.

The adjacent library is well-stocked with a wide choice of books and features (with some reluctance) the Lodge’s only TV in case of sporting emergencies or global financial melt-down.

Six of the Club’s eight bedrooms are on the ground floor. There are two more on the third floor. All have lovely ocean views and there is a choice of super-king size beds or queen size twins.

Outside, the landscaped gardens feature bougainvillea, frangipani, oleander, hibiscus, ficus and a wide variety of palms and other shrubs. There’s an attractive infinity pool and patio with comfortable sun loungers.

The Lodge is run in the style of a country house party, where the characters change from time to time. Everyone generally eats together at one big table from a set menu. There are no bell hops or room service – it’s just a relaxed gathering of kindred spirits in a spectacular location with the best of everything.

The Club is also popular with family or corporate groups wanting to take the whole lodge for a private but fully catered house party, perhaps to mark a special occasion. This can be a remarkably inexpensive option for a group of 12 to 16 people.

Due to its highly secluded location (it can only be accessed by a mile-long forest laneway and there is only one other house within a one mile radius), the club is also an ideal hideaway for those wishing to escape the glare of public life. The small staff is reliable and discreet.

The Club’s food is some of the best in the Bahamas. The head chef has worked in several top restaurants in Europe. His food is simple, fresh and delicious, making optimal use of local ingredients. And the Lodge has an exceptional wine list that is very fairly priced.

Or guests can just completely chill out in the pool garden, on the beach or on one of the Club’s large verandahs, perhaps with a cool glass of Meursault, enjoying one of the world’s most pleasant climates and most beautiful seascapes.

Nearby: 

  • The outer cays, with their charming colonial settlements such as Hope Town and Green Turtle Cay, are easily reached by ferries from Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay and make for pleasant day trips.
  • Big game fishing charters are available in Marsh Harbour and golf is available at Treasure Cay and sometimes at Ritz Carlton’s superb Winding Bay course.
  • The Club has close links with excellent scuba diving instructors and snorkeling guides. Abaco has some wonderful reefs.

There is an excellent guide for nature tours who is a mine of information about Abaco’s bird life, flora and fauna. Eco-tours by cycle or kayak are also possible.
