A quick flight from major hubs such as New York, Toronto and Miami, yet worlds away from Nassau,™s trendy, resort-lined beaches, Kamalame,™s utterly private accommodations are tucked into 96-acres of swaying palms and flowering tropical foliage. A lush oasis ringed by three miles of deserted, white-sand beach and colorful coral gardens, the warm, turquoise waters just off shore teem with manta ray, parrotfish and blue tangs.
Sliced into the Silver Palms that embrace the island, the Great House serves as a welcoming social hub for dining and cocktails and is just a few steps from the heated, freshwater pool, sweeping ocean views and al fresco beach bar. Modern interpretations of classic Bahamian cuisine combined with sophisticated wines and spirits, comfortable elegant island décor, and one of the only over-water spas in the Caribbean underscore Kamalame’s gracious ‘barefoot chic’ character.
Situated on the resort’s Marina dock, Kamalame’s fully equipped, PADI rated Dive Centre is staffed with experienced instructors. Our resident Scuba Diving Professionals, offer a range of PADI certification including resort courses and excursions for divers, non-divers, snorkelers and children. Guest can also complete full certification with the nearby Small Hope Bay Lodge.
Available to expertly guide guests to the area’s world-renowned dive sites, all experience levels are catered to from Blue Hole or Barrier Reef expeditions to snorkelling jaunts to nearby islets and coves. Amazingly diverse marine life, balmy Caribbean water, and 100-foot visibility, ensures guests at Kamalame an exceptional underwater adventure.
The world’s third largest yet least unexplored barrier reef lies adjacent to the shores of our private island resort, and offers Coral Gardens, Wrecks, Walls, Caverns and Blue Holes. Ranging from near vertical wall dives with dramatic ledges and caves to shallow back-reefs abounding with reef fish and invertebrates, some of the world’s most diverse sea creatures can be seen here.
The two-level, 6,000-square-foot Cocoanut is the island’s largest villa and sleeps up to 12 guests (in six suites) while offering an additional two bedrooms for support staff. Its vast great room offers panoramic ocean views and is lined in French doors that open onto a wide, wrap veranda on three sides. The open plan living dining room, offset with a full kitchen and free standing wet bar is accentuated by thoughtful interior accents and hand carved South Asian furnishings.
Two of the six suites – each with an en suite bath with a soaker tub – are connected to the great room. The remaining four, also located on the villa’s upper level, are connected as private wings via sweeping verandas. The villa also features a 1,000-square-foot foot game room on its lower level furnished with a billiards table, generous lounge area, wet bar and a 64” flat-screen TV.
Weddings & Honeymoons
The relaxed elegance, natural beauty, and absolute romance of a private island offers newlyweds the ultimate honeymoon escape. Hide away, au deux, in an isolated villa overlooking a stretch of sugar sand beach. Idle away languid afternoons in a palm shaded hammock, wander miles of deserted beach, float in the warm, turquoise ocean, and let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.
Enjoy gourmet dinners in the candlelit dining room of the Great House, in your private, ocean-side villa, or at a table for two on an isolated beach illuminated by torches. Play cast away on deserted nearby isle with a picnic lunch of chilled champagne and fresh Bahamian cuisine.
