Tiamo Resort

Tiamo Resorts
Driggs Hill , South Andros Island , Bahamas http://www.tiamoresorts.com/
(242) 369-2330

The only eco-resort in the Bahamas, Tiamo is appropriately set on the island of Andros, whose thousands of square miles of unsullied nature are usually visited only by anglers hunting for bonefish. The property, occupying a beachfront stretch surrounded by 125 acres of wilderness preserve, has just 11 wooden bungalows, all of which are screened, fan-cooled, elevated on stilts (translation: no air-conditioning necessary), and have composting toilets, solar-powered electricity, hot water generated by thermal heaters, and comfy king-size beds with hemp and organic cotton linens. In the main lodge you’ll find spectacular meals (don’t skip breakfast or you’ll miss the heavenly coconut-crusted French toast), an open-air bar (set on the beach in summer), and a Nature Concierge Team that organizes daily trips to explore the island’s natural wonders. You can snorkel at offshore blue holes once explored by Jacques Cousteau; kayak through the shallow waters of the South Bight; or take guided inland treks to see orchids, giant cactus, and protected Andros rock iguanas. After a day of discovery, your comfy beachfront hammock will look awfully inviting.

Tip: Leave your high-tech toys at home. Bungalows have no TV’s or phones, and there’s no Internet or cell-phone service anywhere at the resort.

Room to Book: Take your pick. The 11 bungalows are all equally comfortable and private (thanks to the thick foliage in between them), with the same access to the beach.
