Hotels in George Town

There’s an island for every day of the year in the Exumas, a region of the Bahamas renowned for its crystal clear waters, paradise beaches, and excellent seafood. Hotels in Georgetown, the largest city, make the perfect base for exploration: even if you don’t get any further than the nearest beach.

The long sunny days and warm weather make the Exumas a popular destination for honeymooners, or people who are just looking for a special summer holiday.  George Town is on Great Exuma, the largest island in the chain.

The Exumas are a water lover’s paradise. The islands are known for their scuba diving, kayaking, kite-surfing, and swimming. From George Town it’s easy to reach the best sites in the archipelago.  There are lots of boat tour companies operating out of George Town which are happy to take you on a guided cruise past uninhabited islands, some of which are owned by celebrities, ending with a relaxing stop on an unspoiled beach. Diving schools and water-sports companies are abundant on Great Exuma, too.  

George Town itself is a great place to base yourself during your holiday in the Bahamas. The city is full of cute colonial buildings, many in a fetching shade of pink. The charming Elizabeth Harbour is a lovely place to stop and watch the yachts come in, while the local bars are great for a traditional pig roast. There are harbour side marketplaces where you can buy fresh fish direct from the fishermen, laid back bars where you can sip on a tropical cocktail, and spas where you can indulge in a long massage after a hard day on the waves.

Most of the accommodation in and around George Town takes the form of resorts. There are sprawling resorts owned by big hotel brands as well as smaller boutique resorts perfect for a romantic getaway. Budget travellers will find some smaller scale hotels in George Town, as well as some great places to stay further along the coast.
