The Quintessentially Unspoilt Luxury Island Hideaway in The Bahamas. The Tiamo, an exclusive slice of paradise in the heart of the Caribbean. Situated on South Andros Island in the Out Islands of the Bahamas, a visit to Tiamo is unlike most other experiences. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, with a private beach, only 10 villas, and the Bird’s Nest in the resort, taking a vacation here really does enable you to get away from it all. Indulge yourself in tropical surroundings, pristine white-sand beaches, lush green palm groves, and the clearest turquoise waters. Stay in one of the beach-side cottages, each one the epitome of elegance, and bask in the best of the Bahamas, right on your doorstep. Sail, fish, snorkel, scuba dive, or relax in private on one of the Caribbean’s best beaches. The luxury Eco-resort is an idyllic place for a truly amazing escape.
The Property - Once you step out of your beach villa in the morning, you’ll find everything you need to enjoy your vacation in comfort and style, right on the water. Start your day by heading to the Great Room for a healthy breakfast before strolling down to the beach or settling down on a soft sun lounger by the inviting pool. Wander back up to the Great Room for lunch or, later, for a sundowner. And if you need some distraction from your hectic schedule of pure relaxation, take a browse of the collection of volumes in the island’s library, or peruse the interesting local items on display in the shop for something special to bring home with you.
Accommodations - With just 11 villas and 2 Rooms, Tiamo is an exclusive retreat, a place where you really can get away from it all. All 11 Villas on properties exude great charm. Built-in a traditional Caribbean style, each one is surrounded by lush green palm trees and has direct access to the white-sand beach. Designed with minimalist eco-chic in mind, the subtle natural color schemes and luxury white fabrics provide a calm, cool space to unwind in. The private verandas and pools are the perfect spot to sit back on and take in the vista: last hotel renovation September and November 2014.
Dining - When it’s time to eat at Tiamo, you will discover a wonderful dining experience. The sophisticated, natural approach that defines the resort’s philosophy is applied to the food served in the restaurant, and the Michelin-trained chef will ensure you’re in competent hands. Savor the flavors of carefully crafted Caribbean and fusion cuisine, made using the freshest local and organic ingredients and complemented by an excellent selection of wines from some of the world’s best vineyards. The ambiance of the Great Room is stylish yet relaxing. Colorful artwork adorns the sea blue wood walls, candles light the tables, and the gentle, tropical breeze and sounds of the sea form the ultimate backdrop as you enjoy your meal—beach-side chic dining at its best. And of course, all your dining is included in the price of your stay (except if special request).
For an extra serving of romance with your evening meal, choose to dine alfresco on the terrace. Come at sunset to take in the splendid views over the pool to the ocean as you enjoy the European inspired fusion cuisine and a glass of something refreshing. Or arrive later for a moonlit dinner for two under the Caribbean night sky and let the tantalizing aromas of barbecued seafood that drift up from the lower deck set your appetite racing.
Healthy Living - With clean air, a warm climate, and zero stress at Tiamo, looking after your well-being is one of the main objectives. One of the key components of that philosophy is serving up delicious yet healthy food. Freshness is the key to the approach to the dishes created. Tender fish and succulent seafood caught just hours before from the clear Caribbean waters; herbs and vegetables picked from the garden; exotic fruits plucked straight from the tree. The organic ingredients are masterfully crafted to produce a culinary experience with a Bahamian twist. You won’t get the heavy, stodgy fare here that much of the Caribbean is notorious for. Instead, you can relax and indulge yourself without worrying about your waistline.
Spa - Enhance your state of well-being by visiting the intimate new spa for a session with one of the qualified therapists. Located to the rear of the resort and surrounded by tropical palms, offering a range of relaxation and beauty treatments to give your body a break it deserves. Choose from a revitalizing facial or an all-over body massage to ease away every ounce of stress and tension. Alternatively, try a body wrap or exfoliating session and let the natural ingredients – all organic and sourced from the sea – give your skin a healthy, glowing boost. And if you want to freshen up for a romantic evening or to look good on the beach, offering nail and waxing options too.
Gym - A healthy body and a healthy mind go hand in hand, and if you want to keep that maxim going during your vacation, Tiamo’s gym caters for all your fitness needs. Air-conditioned and fully equipped with cardio and multi-gym equipment, as well as free weights and chi balls, you can enjoy a Zen-like workout with a view as you look out across the Caribbean.
Activities - At Tiamo, you can be as relaxed or as active as you like. The resort is perfectly placed to take advantage of the calm Caribbean for some wonderful water sports activities (such as water skiing, wakeboarding…). A spectacular reef awaits just offshore for divers, while the calm, colorful shallows are a paradise for snorkeling, doing paddleboard, or a ride with a transparent canoe. Above the water, this Bahamian island lends itself to some classic sailing experiences and access to world-class fishing. At the Simultaneouslynterior of South Andros is a haven for exploring one of the Caribbean’s most pristine tropical wilderness areas.
