Long Island Bahamas Resorts
There are two major Long Island Bahamas Resorts. The Long Island beach resort Bahamas that is considered to be the most luxurious is located near the Queen's Highway. This is also the oldest Long Island beach resort Bahamas and features a combination of rooms, bungalows, and villas to choose from. The villas are the hotel's latest addition, and each villa has been designed with attention to style and detail. A deck, kitchen, master bedroom, guest bedroom, and two bathrooms make up the floor plan of the villas. The rooms and bungalows are also excellent choices and come with plenty of amenities. All inclusive packages for the resort are available. The second resort on the island is located on Ocean View drive, and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Both resorts offer exquisite service, water equipment rentals, tours, concierge services, and more.
Long Island Bahamas Hotel
Hotels on Long Island are less expensive then the resorts, and also feature more simple lodging. Guests can find beach bungalow cabins or studio apartment style accommodation. Bungalows are located near the beach in a group, with a staff serving breakfast at the hotel restaurant and providing equipment for water sports, and snorkeling, as well as information about boat trips and scuba diving. The studio accommodations are among the most primitive and secluded in the Bahamas. You will need to bring your own food, and you will find little electricity or consistently running water, although there are bathrooms with showers in each unit. This is not the best choice for families, but is an excellent option for anyone who wants to truly get away from the 21st century for a week or weekend.
Long Island is a quiet, beautiful place to enjoy the pristine beauty of the Bahamas.
