By leveraging their knowledge and love for the Bahamian culture, this family owned business creates a fully authentic Bahamian vacation experience.
As a proud Bahamian, Nicole (or “Nikki”, as she is affectionately called) has worked for decades to develop a unique resort. Nikki built the resort one nail at a time after banks kept shutting her down. Like many, the banks thought that a hotel near the airport would never be successful.
