I spent one night at ASTA after six days on Eleuthera. I wanted a place near the airport with a little character and style but not a completely bloated price, and this place more than met my expectations.
Unique location, beautiful wrap around porches with a number of potential spots to take in the views while sipping a drink or reading a book. Seriously lovely porch furniture.
The nearest beach is a bit small, but I was told the place has an agreement with another close by resort with a larger spread of sand. Honor bar system was a novelty and certainly made the whole experience more intimate. Dinner was good but not great.
I had a room facing the sea. Wonderful floors and carpets and lovely final touches. Couldn't figure out how to lock my balcony door. Water pressure, which had been quite low on Eleuthera, was quite better here.
Try lunch or dinner at Traveler's Rest, it's a totally manageable walk and their portions are generous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the west end of New Providence lies an exquisite hideaway. A STONE'S THROW AWAY is perched on one of the highest elevations by the coast. Here our Guests can indulge in a rare panoramic view of Nassau 's land and sea. The scenery boasts the best of the island's natural wonders, from the native pine forest by Lake Killarney to the brim of the coral reefs that protect the glimmering beaches of west Nassau. The property was recently built to echo the traditions of an old Bahamian home: wood floors and wood ceilings, louvered shutters and a large wrap around porch bring the visitors back to a quieter time long ago when the music of the islands could be heard in the whispers of the trade winds. ... more less
