U.S. News Review

On Great Exuma Island, Sandals Emerald Bay offers a luxurious setting enhanced by the feeling of complete seclusion. Though its location may be somewhat disconnected, Sandals Emerald Bay offers plenty of activities to keep you entertained. In addition to a Greg Norman-designed, 18-hole golf course, there are also four pools, a 150-slip deepwater marina, unlimited scuba diving and the 29,000-square-foot Red Lane® Spa. However, some recent guests still say they felt restless after a few days here. Consider renting a car if you want to explore the rest of Great Exuma Island. Travelers also recommend booking island excursions — like bone fishing and kayaking — through independent tour companies to avoid the exorbitant resort costs. After a long day in the sun, bed down in one of Sandals' spacious ocean view and oceanfront rooms, suites or villas, decorated with British Colonial-style furnishings, like mahogany accents and natural stone floors. All rooms also come equipped with a furnished patio.
