 Though synonymous in the minds of many visitors and investors with the sprawling casinos, pools and the endless amenities of large-scale resorts like Atlantis and the Cable Beach hotels, it is in the area of smaller hotel offerings that much of the investment action has been seen in recent months in The Bahamas.

Since April there has been a series of acquisitions and openings including in New Providence (home to the capital, Nassau), Eleuthera and Exuma.

The much-anticipated Island House, based in western New Providence, threw open its doors to visitors in April. The 30-room, $40 million property which was developed by a well-known local family, the Holoweskos, presents some serious island chic.

Besides its generously-sized rooms and cottages, the hotel offers a “movement studio” where anti-gravity yoga classes are available, a 48-room cinema, and two restaurants.

In Exuma, the iconic 32-room Club Peace and Plenty resort located in the heart of historic Georgetown, the capital and principal settlement of Exuma, was sold by Bahamas Waterfront Properties in May for $4.5 million. The hotel has been the social heart of the tranquil Great Exuma community since it was first opened in 1958, drawing Hollywood celebrities, British royalty, loyal returnee vacationers and locals ever since.
