Colourful upscale Bahamian resort

Sitting on the western tip of Grand Bahama island, Old Bahama Bay provides tranquil and relaxing getaways with warm, friendly service. The resort's brightly coloured buildings are scattered along the pristine beach front, where crystal blue waters lap the white sands. 

Embrace the laidback Bahamian lifestyle, here you can sample a range of Caribbean rums at Teaser's Tiki Bar, catch and cook your own fish supper and then watch the awe-inspiring sunset, just a typical day in paradise. There is always something to do, from land and watersports to lawn games and a children's playground, Old Bahama Bay has a wide range of complimentary activities to entertain families and couples alike. 

Combining Bahamian charm and luxury with the remote, exclusive feel of the Out Islands, this resort exudes barefoot elegance and luxury in an idyllic setting, the perfect resort for a Bahamian escape.

Gainesville, Florida

We took our private boat from Palm Beach, Florida, to OBB. Nice, friendly staff and pleasant grounds. To best define OBB, think of glamping (glamorous camping). The rooms are well air conditioned, spotless, and spacious. Balconies are nice and the bathrooms are large. Housekeeping was consistent. No complaints at all. We ate breakfast in our rooms and lunch on our boat. Dinner was enjoyed on our boat some nights and other nights we brought our fish and lobster to the restaurant. They prepared a family style dinner with our fresh catches and their sides. Very accommodating and quick (30 minutes for a party of 10). Breakfast was okay — eggs and omelettes. Coffee—we brought our own as well as our own Nespresso machine. The hotel store doesn’t open until after 10am in September and the cappuccino machine is found in the store, not the restaurant. We did drink the hotel water and it was fine. The beach was beautiful to sit for sunrises. We spent hardly any time on the resort grounds but did enjoy the time we spent there. The price is right for the value. Checkin is slow-both at customs and front desk—check seasonal times for the gas station if you need to gas up your boat. Beautiful water by boat and lots of fun places to fish and explore by boat. Hope to visit again soon.

Beach Bar Good Times

We were staying in Freeport. Went up to the West End and stopped by Old Bahama Bay to take a look at the Resort and ended up spending good times at the beach bar with Harold, Erica and the gang. Had such a good time and were so impressed with the Resort now looking to book a vacation next year.
