Located off the northeast coast of Andros, and accessible only by private ferry or seaplane, the secluded family-owned Bahamian island of Kamalame Cay caters to a comfortable group of guests at any given time. Idyllic and isolated, this oasis of breathtaking natural beauty wraps ocean adventure and island romance in the luxury of a private island experience.A quick flight from major hubs such as New York, Toronto and Miami, yet worlds away from Nassau’s trendy, resort-lined beaches, Kamalame’s utterly private accommodations are tucked into 96-acres of swaying palms and flowering tropical foliage. A lush oasis ringed by three miles of deserted, white-sand beach and colourful coral gardens, the warm, turquoise waters just off shore teem with manta ray, parrotfish and blue tangs.Kamalame Cay is an idyllic escape for those whose idea of paradise is a tropical hideaway where a sarong is all that’s required to be ‘dressed’ for dinner.Modern interpretations of classic Bahamian cuisine combined with sophisticated wines and spirits, comfortable elegant island décor, and one of the only overwater spas in the Caribbean underscore Kamalame’s gracious 'barefoot chic’ character.Traced by white sand pathways, the island’s beautifully landscaped jungle of sea grapes, palms and coco plums is banked by pristine mangrove fields and a pristine coast scattered with conch shells and starfish; the wide variety of birdlife ranges from sandpipers, herons and cranes to finches, pink ibis and pelicans.Sliced into the Silver Palms that embrace the island, the Great House serves as a welcoming social hub for dining and cocktails and is just a few steps from the heated, freshwater pool, sweeping ocean views and al fresco beach bar.With myriad diversions – from spa programs to world-class diving, snorkelling, fishing and sporting excursions – Kamalame takes pleasure in tailoring every guest’s experience to individual tastes.

We had very high hopes for this resort. Given its remote location and glossy site we were ready for an adventurous and luxurious vacation. We have traveled all over the world and stayed at many 5 star resorts in remote locations and this one missed the mark in a huge way. Pros- the activities were solid fun. We are avid divers and enjoyed the barrier reef as well as our spear fishing excursion. Special props to our boat captain Marlene who is extremely knowledgeable and gave us excellent service. Cons- the food, the cleanliness of everything, the staff, and the parts of the facilities were all 2-3 star quality maximum but at very high end prices. Mistake after mistake was made and little was done to correct anything. Ultimately they need more attentive ownership and better managers who are capable of training the staff up. Especially during Covid times, I was appalled at the lack of cleanliness in our room and multiple odd mistakes made by housekeeping like leaving piles of dirty laundry behind that I’m not sure was ours, leaving cleaning supplies behind, and not cleaning part of our villa for three days. Hair and sand and dirt wasn’t cleaned out of the showers when we arrived , stained sheets and towels were common which was all unsettling given how important cleanliness is right now. Not to mention that most of the staff weren’t wearing masks at all. At least 50% of the time when we ordered food, they got our order wrong and the wait staff just seemed a bit lackadaisical in general. Also, you are given a golf cart when you arrive which is necessary for getting around the island and ours broke down 4 times over a 5 day stay. Annoying for sure. Stunning location but we won’t be back until ownership or management changes.

My husband and I have traveled to Kamalame 3 times and can't wait to go back. If you are looking for that true romantic, white sand, clear water, beautiful reefs and shells then this is your place to be. The staff is amazing, you feel as though you are home and they never forget you. Each time you return, they remember you by name. Our days on the boat with the crew are always fabulous, the snorkeling is beautiful and learning about the island through their stories is a bonus. The food is unbelievable, it is so fresh and menu changes daily according to the seasonal availability. My husband and I also believe that the over the water spa is the best in the world. Open breezes and glass bottom floors make the spa a truly born through nature experience. There are many bungalow and villa choices but if you are looking for that blue lagoon, romantic, only ones on the island feel then I would suggest Pigeon Plum. It is our cottage of choice. I promise you will not be disappointed and will want to return each and every year to this amazing location.

A short flight from LPIA to Andros and a 20 min taxi ride gets you to one of the loveliest places on earth. The Kamalame Cay staff takes great care of you from the minute you arrive until you are back at the Andros airport. We walked for miles on the deserted beach, played in the crystal clear ocean, paddle boarded, explored the cay in our golf cart, road around on beach cruisers, had lovely massages at the spa and enjoyed delicious food with great wines. We stayed in a Bungalow and watched spectacular sunrises from our bed and at night star gazed from our deck. Really enjoyed the outdoor shower, mini bar and our own palapa on the beach. We attended the monthly wine pairing lunch and it was great fun dancing and enjoying the party with other guests, food was to die for and you can't beat the Caribbean vibe!

We have been coming to Kamalame Cay for over ten years. It has been consistently wonderful! The perfect place to relax in total privacy and beauty. We have always enjoyed the spa, but to celebrate our 44th anniversary we went snorkeling to see fish rich blue holes, and compare to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia , and we went troll fishing. Caught barracudas. After all this time, I decided to spread the word.
