5 All-Inclusive Resorts in the Bahamas for Adults Only

With its stunning beaches, crystal-clear blue waters, and year-round sunshine, it’s no wonder why this Caribbean paradise is a favorite among travelers from all over the world.

And if you’re looking to take your getaway to the next level, there’s no better way to do it than by staying at one of the best all-inclusive resorts in the Bahamas.

From dreamy beachfront villas to top-notch amenities and activities, these five resorts offer everything you could possibly need for the perfect adults-only escape.

1. Sandals Emerald Bay

Just off the coast of Florida is the Great Exuma island – home to the most stunning all-inclusive resorts in the Bahamas for adults only.

Sandals Emerald Bay whisks you away into 500 tropical acres the moment you set foot in Emerald Bay’s marina.

Island-style accommodations range from oversized suites to villas, connected by palm enclaves, manicured lawns and a boardwalk that zigzags through sandy whites.

There’s a massive zero-entry pool that centers the blue-hued buildings, paired with a swim-up bar for boozy afternoons.

Rent Hobie Cats, paddleboards, kayaks and scuba equipment for an ocean-filled day or try the golf course designed by Greg Norman. Tennis courts, croquet and other land sports are also available.

For relaxation, free entertainment and live shows are scheduled daily. The Red Lane Spa is well-loved, as are the 11 global restaurants with unlimited food and drinks.

The best perk? Enjoy a free wedding for 3-night or longer stays! Sandals Emerald Bay is perfect for a week of sun, surf, and sunset vows.

2. Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas

Carving out a portion of Nassau’s famed Cable Beach, the estate of Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas is framed by powder sand.

The two towers of rooms and suites overlook the pool and beach, some fitted with balconies for additional viewing space. Extra amenities such as tennis courts, snorkeling gear, rock climbing walls and even a flying trapeze come included in the upfront price.

For food, opt between the three restaurants and the beach grill. Post-meal entertainment comes in form of bars, a nightclub and a piano bar. There’s a decent game setup of ping pong, pool tables, and board games as well.

Note that this all-inclusive and adults-only Bahamas resort is rather dated as it lists amongst the oldest on the island. Still, it’s value for money and well worth the beach!

Do avoid going in March if you don’t like crowds, as Breezes is a popular Spring Break resort. If you’re one of these Spring Breakers looking for an affordable time, book early.

3. Sandals Royal Bahamian

Sandals Royal Bohemian Resort’s all-white aesthetic stands out against the light blue waters of Nassau. It is Where Love Comes Easy indeed, as the serene coast and setting let you indulge in your partner.

While on the smaller side compared to other Sandals hotels, it accommodates with comfort.

Couples celebrating special occasions should book swim-up rooms with extended terraces, though cozy and neutral-toned furnishing are standard across all suites.

River pools, lagoon pools, and the beach are more than enough satisfactory. Don’t miss out on Sandals Barefoot Cay though – an exclusive offshore island that guarantees alone time! Scuba diving, sailing, water trikes and windsurfing are other water-based sports to enjoy.

24-hour snack service aside, check out their 13 dining options. This includes food trucks in Coconut Grove, and dining atop the wooden pier. To end the night on a romantic note, hit up the fire pit and lounge chaise combo on sand.

4. Warwick Paradise Island – Bahamas

Facing Nassau Harbor, Warwick Paradise Island is a rare resort found right by downtown. Yachts and ferries cross through the waterway to offer alternative views. While relatively small, it’s well-maintained and a convenient choice.

Bright and airy rooms peek over the harbor, though no viewing spot is as brilliant as the pool level. Steps from the pool is a cozy beach cordoned off by a boardwalk, making it safe for swimming and guaranteeing utmost privacy.

Move your party from the pool to any of the 5 dining outlets – or spend the entire day outdoors by the pool and lobby bar. As many guests can attest, Verandah is best for a hearty breakfast.

For those with itchy feet, the hotel provides shuttle service to Atlantis Casino, Cabbage Beach, and other attraction points.

Considering its location and amenities, this adults-only all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas is best for two kinds of couples: those who want to enjoy each other, or want an easy base to access.

5. Hotel Riu Palace Paradise Island

Looking for an adults’ retreat on Paradise Island? All-inclusive Riu Palace Paradise Island Hotel caters with 379 air-conditioned rooms, private balconies and minibars. 4 kilometers of spectacular beach stretch before it.

For a more land-based experience, stay close to the swimming pool and its adjoining whirlpool. Commandeer a sun lounger for relaxing views over the beach. You can also soak up rays at the solarium terrace or on the beach volleyball court.

Those not keen to sweat can enjoy daytime entertainment programs and evening shows, hopping between the main buffet and theme restaurants. The sauna makes for a cleansing in-between-meals stop.

What really draws people in though, is the hotel’s proximity to various locales. Just 2 miles from Smuggler’s Beach and a mile from downtown Nassau, you’ve got everything in reach.

Adjacent Atlantis Resort & Casino is also a popular attraction for adults. Alternatively, sign up for excursions such as swimming with dolphins or visiting water parks.
