Bahamas Graycliff Hotel

A Holiday for Hedonists and Honeymoon Couples

By

When I recall a visit to Graycliff Hotel (I came for dinner, not a honeymoon), I remember it as an elegant, romantic place with timeless appeal. A landmark mansion listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Graycliff is a hotel with a storied past.

Located in downtown Nassau, close to the wharf and shopping district, Graycliff's history stretches back to the 18th century. The main house was built by Captain John Graysmith, a true pirate of the Caribbean whose plunder brought him great wealth and fame.

The property overlooks the official residence of the Governor General of the Bahamas and is a short cab ride to the beaches and casinos of Paradise Island.

With just 20 rooms and two swimming pools, Graycliff is an intimate place where honeymoon couples and other romantics come to relax, eat fine food and savor rare wines, and perhaps even puff on one of the hand-rolled cigars produced by the on-site factory.
