A quick 40-minute flight from South Floridaâ??s coast, Grand Bahama Island has long provided a favorite escape for couples in love. In the resort community of Lucaya, flanking nearly eight acres of white-sand beach, Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort sets the standard for the ultimate island getaway, promising a private oasis where luxury and romance know no bounds.
Tropical and art deco design elements create a casually elegant ambience in the 1,218 guestrooms, from where guests take in sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and surrounding Bahamian islands. Room service delivers 24 hours a day, or couples can venture out to sample the fusion of cuisines served at 13 restaurants and lounges. Part of the bill of fare: steak and seafood at Churchillâ??s Chop House, Caribbean specialties at Irieâ??s and Asian delicacies at China Beach. After dinner, guests can relax with a nightcap at the seaside Prop Club or gaming at the 25,000-square-foot Vegas-style casino.
Daytime possibilities onsite include watersports, tennis, championship golf and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Those looking to unwind find rejuvenation poolside, along the private beach and at the 25,000-square- foot Senses Spa, where treatments draw inspiration from cultures worldwide. Among the highlights, unique water therapies such as rain massage, submerged massage and soothing soaks in seaweed, sea salt or algae. Honeymooners can also sign up for side-by-side rubdowns in an oceanfront cabana.
Not far from the resort, guests have the opportunity to swim with dolphins, explore a large eco preserve or discover historic underwater caves. Others traverse local beaches on horseback, sail away on a chartered boat or shop for gifts at the local straw market.
Few destinations can match the choice of wedding venues at Our Lucaya. Couples can marry barefoot in the sand, against a backdrop of turquoise surf and white sand, followed by an intimate celebration in a tropical garden or on a pool deck. Or they can say â??foreverâ? in the Manor House and celebrate their vows with a grand reception for up to 1,000 people on the Great Lawn.
Dreamy wedding packages are available for every budget and style. From airport transfers and hair stylists to live music and videography, options to personalize the day abound.
