Are you looking for a luxurious, quiet and hidden away vacation? Check out Kamalame Cay Resort in Andros Island Bahamas! Located just a short ferry ride off the coast of Andros Island, Kamalame Cay Resort offers suites, cottages and villas along the pristine beachfront of Kamalame Cay.
Originally from Jamaica, Brian and Jennifer Hew created a getaway unlike any other in the tropical paradise of Kamalame Cay Resort in the Bahamas.
I was a guest at Kamalame Cay Resort while in town covering the 16 Couples, 16 Islands, One Priceless Day wedding event and I came home relaxed, refreshed...and longing for another visit!
Let's begin with the seaside cottages, shall we? Each cottage has a name, with a corresponding golf cart for convenient transportation around the island during your stay. I stayed in the Coco Plum Cottage, named for the bountiful coco plum bushes surrounding the cottage.
The seaside cottages are shaped as an octagon, with french doors that open onto a wrap-around patio, leading out to the beach. I spent most of the early mornings walking the beach and taking in the sunrise...
The cottages are 700 square feet, with 17-foot ceilings, and are decorated in a lovely beach theme. The cottages have either king or twin beds, seating areas, kitchenettes and a fully-stocked bar.
That bed? It was amazingly comfortable and came with the best view I've ever had in a hotel room...
You have everything you need for a wonderful stay right in your cottage. I was happy to find delicious cheese and crackers, healthy snacks, as well as a delightful selection of wine and liquor in my cabinet - along with a french press and freshly ground coffee!
Keeping with the beach theme, the room is decorated in white rattan and fresh palm fronds from around the island. The white and tropical theme was so inspiring, I came home with a desire to redecorate my own home to bring a little taste of the islands home with me.
One of my favorite features of the Coco Plum Cottage was the bathroom...you really can't beat a spa tub with a view of the ocean!
The Great House at Kamalame Cay is where everyone goes for meals, lounging and the open bar! The customer service was fantastic, with a staff that makes you feel right at home and always ready to do whatever it takes to make you happy.
The Great House is the perfect place to go when you want a little human interaction, to grab a snack or simply lounge and enjoy the scenery.
Oh, and the food served at the Kamalame Cay Resort?
Mouthwatering. Delicious. A delight to the taste buds! Serving both Bahamian-inspired comfort foods and gourmet meals, I never left the table hungry during my stay. A few dishes to mention were the conch fritters, fried lobster, cracked conch and steak frittes.
While you can dine in the Great House for meals, a breakfast basket will also be delivered to your cottage each morning, which you can take with you to the beach or enjoy on your patio. I loved the healthy options brought right to my door!
Kamalame Cay Resort Amenities
While you can have quite a nice vacation simply taking in the scenery and relaxing on your patio or the beach, the Kamalame Cay Resort offers plenty of ways to enjoy your vacation!
The resort offers bicycles to explore the island if you tire of your golf cart...it's a wonderful way to get a little exercise in during your vacation!
If you tire of swimming in the ocean, or want to take a dip in the evenings, there is a lovely pool and tiki bar located right off the Great House.
Speaking of the beach, there are cabanas located in front of each cottage, as well as near the Great House.
As well as kayaks! You can kayak in the bay or to the nearby rocks and explore the marine life...
There is also an amazing spa with a view unlike any other...
You can also book excursions for diving, snorkeling, bone fishing and many other activities through the hotel's main office!
