The Sports Center has tennis, basketball and volleyball courts as well as a lap pool and putting course. Nearby is the brand new championship Paradise Island golf course.
The world class spa has treatments ranging from a simple haircut to a two hour pampering ritual to a couples suite where one or two people can spend time in solitude.
There are also miles of beach and rocky foreshores where you can get away from it all. Delicious box lunches are prepared by Murrey's Deli and room service.
A trip to Nassau is a great way to experience the culture of the Bahamas. During the day, wander through the straw market and bargain with the vendors for a great deal on hand made items.
If you have a car (rentals are available) and feel adventurous, take a drive around the island. Visit fruit and vegetable stands, stop in at a local restaurant for real Bahamian food, or check out the fish stands along the road.
In the evening, visit one of the nightclubs, or do some shopping along Bay Street. If you're lucky, you'll see a Junkanoo (traditional Bahamian parade).
