Outstanding lunch at Yellowbird restaurant. Salmon poke was beyond excellent. Fresh ingredients, subtle flavours served on bed of exquisite rice by chef who clearly knows his business. Plus professional and friendly service. Ambience near pool delightful.

We had a wonderful stay at The Island House. I wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation/birthday trip and that's exactly what we had. Every single person we encountered, from front desk associate, shuttle driver, servers (I'm horrible with names) is friendly, accommodating and happy to help. We received a complimentary bottle of wine, which was very thoughtful. Shima is our favorite restaurant but Island pizza was also great. Can't say anything bad about the resort, looking forward to staying here again!

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at The Island House and are so thrilled to have found this gem! We live in NYC and work in media so we were looking for a really relaxing place where we could completely decompress for his birthday. Everything from the grounds, to the service to the nearby beach club was stellar from the get go. Our room was beautiful! We started each day with a wonderful coffee at the coffee bar before heading to the private beach in a london cab (!). We ate excellent meals at both Shima and Mahogany House and took a midnight swim in the gorgeous pool. Additionally we had a really easy/relaxed covid testing experience with James who was super hospitable and checked in with us throughout our stay. All of the staff were so warm and welcoming. If you're looking for a tasteful, relaxing break with impeccable service look no further. We didn't get to try the spa on site this time around but will be sure to get there when we inevitably make it back.

We just got home to Palm Beach County, FL (where we are spoiled for good beaches....and I also lived in Australia for 7-years and California for 4-years)....so believe me when I tell you, the private beach (Old Fort Bay Beach Club) that you get free and easy access to, is one of the greatest beaches in the world (assuming you're not there to surf) and officially our favorite beach in the world now! I should also point out that I very rarely write reviews despite being an avid traveller, but The Island House is truly special, and the staff so amazing, that I just felt compelled to write the review tonight before I go back to the rat race tomorrow and forget. Also, the last review here from 'bignb' is 100% on point. Upon arrival, it was my wife's Birthday, and I asked if there was anything like a private dining experience that could be arranged at the hotel or beach. The front desk didn't believe so, but told me they would call JT who runs Food & Beverage for the hotel and their two restaurants. JT quickly took my contact details and told me he would make a couple of calls and let me know if the beach was going to be possible. The next morning I woke up to confirmation via Whatsapp messages (which kept it a surprise from my wife), and JT proceeded to arrange the most amazing private dining experience for us the next night, down at the Old Fort Bay Club, right on the sand for sunset. My wife and I are foodies, and I'm admittedly a coffee snob, and every single meal we had was top notch, and so were the cocktails! Breakfast and lunch always so good (the coffee amazing), and the Thai food at Shima is the best I've had anywhere in the Americas, since I left Sydney (which prides itself on Asian Fusion). My wife is 20-weeks pregnant and got a massage that she was raving about from the Spa. The rooms are also very spa-like, and spacious, and because the hotel is only 6-years old, everything is very modern and you can tell that no expense was spared when building this place. We had our 3-year old son with us also, and I would highly recommend the hotel for families also. It's hard to describe, but it's the perfect combination of peaceful and trendy! Not sure what else to point out. James the manager does rapid Covid tests every morning @ 10am for re-entry back into the U.S, which was really convenient. The hotel also arranged a trip the Exumas for us that had been on our bucket-list for a while and it was terrific. I've been lucky enough to stay at many 4 & 5-star hotels (for work and pleasure) and it's only a matter of time before The Island House is upgraded to 5-stars IMHO. No idea how it hasn't been already tbh. We will be back! Many thanks to James, JT, Kent and all the team!

My wife and I just left The Island House (TIH) after 5 days there and WOW! All around top notch. We have been fortunate to spend time in some amazing places around the world, and TIH is right up there with our favorites (which also include Guana Island BVI, Vahine Private Island FP, and the Remote Resort Fiji). Rooms: The Suites and Jr Suites are poolside which also makes them very convenient to everything else including the gym, coffeehouse, and Shima restaurant. Absolutely nothing to complain about regarding the rooms. Bedding was great, and the indoor shower was so nice that my wife, who normally LOVES outdoor showers, used the indoor one the entire stay. Food: We now have food babies, or at least our bellies look like it. The food was GREAT. Breakfast at the Coffeehouse was always excellent. We had a variety of items including the chocolate chip pancakes, bagel with lox, Farmer's breakfast, etc, and all were excellent. The coffee was very good too. Shima is an Asian themed restaurant that serves good sushi (get the Tuna with crispy rice), curries, noodles, and other dishes. For lunch, the Poke bowl and salmon bowl were excellent. Mahogany house is Italian with great pasta and remarkably good pizza. The goat cheese/fig pizza was a hit as was the truffle pasta. Mahogany Store: Sells items for use in your room including basic groceries, sundries, etc. They also sell homemade gelato, wine, and beer. Service: All around excellent. Gym: Quite good. Small, but it has everything you need including 2 Pelotons (bring your shoes). Spa: Very nice! The Signature Treatment is a few dollars more than the standard treatment, but totally worth it. It includes some fancy reflexology stuff and other items that my wife loved. Pool: Very nice. Good service during the day and quiet overall. Temperature was good and not cold as described in some other reviews. BEACH: I capitalized this because the beach was amazing. For the beach, the hotel takes you in the awesome London taxi to the Old Fort Bay Club and the BEST BEACH in Nassau. You can get food and drinks there, and the fish seem to like to eat any left over bread that might fall out of your hands into the water. The hamburger is fantastic (and I am wearing an In'n'Out t-shirt while I write this, so you know I love a good burger). We ended up going there everyday. The hotel is suitable for couples or families. There is also a decent number of locals who come for meals at the hotel, so make sure you make reservations for dinner especially at Shima on Fridays and Saturdays. There is no room service, but you can do take out from the restaurants. Overall, a wonderful experience.
