Things to See and Do While Staying at Grand Isle Resort and Spa

A schedule packed with outdoor pursuits isn't required for a fun time on Great Exuma, the Bahamas. So, though Grand Isle Resort and Spa doesn't have the most impressive range of recreational opportunities, it may still provide precisely the kind of setting you're hoping for.

There is one pool at Grand Isle Resort and Spa. There are so many things to do on Great Exuma that lounging at the property's pool might not come to mind, but it could provide a brief escape from public attractions. This property is also in a breezy location on the water, so you'll find multiple ways to keep cool in the sun when you room here. If you're not fond of swimming, the site's whirlpool provides a different way to enjoy the water.

Some travelers worry about finding a gym that they can use during their stay, but here they have them covered; be sure to ask the staff how to access the workout facility available on-site.


Though Grand Isle Resort and Spa does not have a golf course, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The closest golf course is Emerald Reef Golf Course, which you'll find a half mile to the south-southwest of this accommodation. There are 18 holes at this course. It's a total of 5642 yards long, and is a par 72. If you'd like more information or want to inquire about the possibility of reserving a tee time, contact the course at (242) 336-6800.


A recent addition to the resort, the Undersea Park at Grand Isle, is a lush underwater fantasy world full of snorkeling trails around the resort, and offers guests a peek at corals, colorful marine life, and life in general below the water's surface.

Entertainment and Nightlife

If you want easy access to the hottest after-hours hangouts and a full schedule of live entertainment, then Grand Isle Resort and Spa is not the best option. The villa complex doesn't offer a wide range of nighttime activities.
