Sandals Emerald Bay

Deep within the idyllic waters of the Exumas, the brand new Sandals Emerald Bay brings unprecedented luxury to the easy-going rhythms of the Bahamian Out Islands. Here, a privileged enclave is designed to ensure you will feel as if you are the only ones there, where service reigns supreme and Bahamian-style architecture of elegant villas and suites harmonize with nature. Secluded within 500 tropical acres along a pristine, mile-long beach, civilized pleasure coexist with exotic adventures, from three impressive pools - including a half-acre, zero-entry pool with dramatic fire pit in the middle. Play championship golf on a Greg Norman-designed course, voted one of the Caribbean's Best by Travel & Leisure Golf. Relax in the first-ever Red Lane® Dermalogica concept spa.
Location: Beachfront on the powdery white sand of Emerald Bay, Great Exuma. 10 minutes from Georgetown Airport.

Scuba Training - Novices and certified divers alike will appreciate the scuba options at this resort. For guests who are not certified or would like to scuba for the first time, Sandals offer a resort course (a fee of US$70.00 applies to guests who require the resort course). To qualify you must pass a water skill check, meet medical requirements and fill out a liability release. After completing the course, guests will be allowed one tank dive (of approx. 30ft) per day. The resort course is valid for one year at any Sandals or Beaches Resorts. Certified divers are allowed one two-tank dive or two single dives a day. There's no diving on day of departure. All our dives range from 20 to 90 feet. If you are a certified diver and the instructor feels you need to take a refresher course, there will be an additional $70.00 per person for the 1.5 hour course. As per PADI standards this will allow you to dive as a certified diver. Remember to bring your dive log and certification card.
