If you have visited West End and Old Bahama Bay recently, you have certainly seen the large detailed luxury oceanfront estate located across the canals. I recently learned that this estate, named "Nandana", is available for rent. Starting at $5,500 per night, it is a little pricier than a suite at Old Bahama Bay but definitely more spacious!
From their website:
"Nandana" (which means Paradise in the ancient tongue of Sanskrit) is a newly completed large luxury estate on a secluded beach near West End, Grand Bahama. Our luxurious and exceedingly private villa compound is a fully staffed, island home specifically created for intimate gatherings of up to ten family members or friends.
Nandana goes beyond the traditional villa vacation by providing guests with a wide range of luxury resort services, amenities and activities. These include gourmet cuisine, on-site masseuse, 120' infinity pool, Jacuzzi, Jet Skis, ATV's, 18-hole golf course, beach volleyball and more.
Designed by a renowned architectural firm in an Asian beach house style, the property is comprised of six separate buildings. A spectacular main house with soaring 40' ceilings is surrounded by five richly-appointed and free standing bedroom suites. The interior of the property has been constructed entirely of natural materials with massive amounts of imported Burmese teak covering the floors, walls and ceilings and natural stone forming most other surfaces. A professionally designed lighting system has been installed to emphasize the property's many distinctive architectural features.
