Old Bahama Bay has a barefoot elegant charm. The beachfront hotel combines Bahamian ambiance with the high standards of an international resort.

Adjacent to the hotel is a 72-slip state-of-the-art marina with on-site Customs & Immigration. Marina guests have access to all of the resorts services and amenities, making Old Bahama Bay the ideal haven for short and long-term dockage.

With ocean views in all directions, mouth-watering dishes served in its two restaurants, a host of exceptional land and water activities, and a family of staff unlike any other, Old Bahama Bay offers a truly memorable experience.

Bahamas Real Estate Ownership

Real estate ownership in The Bahamas has grown substantially in the past ten years as a part of the business renaissance that is occurring throughout the country. This included the development of the spectacular Atlantis Resort at Paradise Island, the Our Lucaya Resort in Lucaya, Ginn sur Mer on Grand Bahama Island, and planned new resorts in Nassau, Eleuthera, the Abacos, the Exumas, and elsewhere on Grand Bahama Island. The Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation have rated The Bahamas as the number one country in the Caribbean for business investment due to its friendly, well-educated, English speaking population, low crime rate, and its stable, business friendly government. The Bahamas has no income, estate, or capital gains taxes and real estate transactions include the security of U.S. title insurance.
