If you’re looking for a quick, laid-back summer getaway, look no further. The 4-star Grand Lucayan Resort, situated a stone’s throw from the shores of Southern Florida on Grand Bahama island, is offering a 3-night stay for only $375 — a savings of 50 percent compared with travel later in the year.
In addition to three nights’ accommodation, the $375 price tag provides $250 in resort credit, which may be used towards pool-side cocktails, relaxing spa treatments, and more. Traveling with kids? Children under 10 stay and eat for free.
Arguably the best part about this offer is the flexible travel dates. Get away now through August 4, or August 11-29. This includes Independence Day and weekends.
The Grand Lucayan invited me to the resort back in April, and I was delighted by the spacious, clean rooms and friendly Bahamian staff. The 400-square-foot Traditional Island Room included with this deal provides a king bed, complimentary WiFi, and a private balcony with sweeping views of the island.
Most of the rooms are housed in the resort’s cruise ship-inspired main building, which is the tallest structure on the island. Just outside lies a long, winding swimming pool surrounded by a large sundeck manicured with palm trees and tropical vegetation, shading guests needing a break from the sun. Venture a few feet further to sink your toes in the white-sand beach stretching from the resort’s easternmost end to the neighboring Radisson.
Although it’s tempting to spend all three days lounging by the pool, Grand Bahama boasts many natural treasures that are well worth leaving the resort for. Unlike its busy, casino-focused sister island of Nassau, Grand Bahama offers miles of crowd-free beaches accessible via off-road jeep. Inland, kayak through the mangroves, or hike to the mouths of the island’s network of underwater caves — one of the longest in the world.
Back at the Grand Lucayan, re-energize with a meal at one of the on-site restaurants, or walk across the street to Port Lucaya Marina for some dockside fare.
