Hero image Bahama House Bahamas


Don’t tell anyone, but the tiny Harbour Island has long been a magnet for those in the know looking to escape the over-tourism of the Caribbean. Beneath the bushels of bougainvillea, you’ll find the Bahama House—a 200-year-old, coral-hued boutique hotel that feels like visiting your wealthy best friend’s holiday home.

Within it’s a riot of retro colonial-meets-Bahamian décor and charming style, with pastels, cane furniture, and parrot and starfish motifs. Sink into a rare book in the living room library or head to the Tiki Bar for a fragrant, rummy Goombay Smash to get in the holiday mood.

Alternatively, engage one of the guides for adventures in deep-sea fishing or cliff-jumping into the sapphire sea. Dunmore Town, within which the hotel is set, is also a cultural immersion in the waiting.


It’s Wes Anderson does the Caribbean, and the vibe is rare and precious. The hotel is very close to the pretty Pink Sands Beach, although, of its abundant attributes, its true treasure may lie in its kitchen.

Chef Niki is a wonder, creating absolutely delicious treats whether the guava pastries for breakfast or fresh artichoke dip to go with your sundowner. She’ll even whip up fresh conch ceviche on a beach excursion, using a mollusk fresh from the glassy sea.
