Fancy taking a trip to one of the great Exuma resorts in the Bahamas? If you're looking for unspoiled white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and more nature than city, you're on the right track.
There are 5 really excellent resorts we've found that others have really loved and you will too.
But first, we'll just let you all know a bit about the Exumas.
The Exumas are a bit different than some of the more built-up areas of the Bahamas.
The Exuma Cays tend to be the area for the rich and famous to stay and play while Great Exuma and Little Exuma are more relaxed.
The resorts we've listed here are all around Great Exuma.
Located on Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, The Grand Isle Resort is set beautifully on a crescent-shaped pristine beach and is our number one pick for Exuma resorts.
This resort will work very well for both families and couples and is similar to (but a leader in) the accommodation style of much of the Exumas. Here you choose to stay in 1-4 bedroom villas that are full luxury.
The resort also features:
Reviewers really rate this resort highly stating:

We love Sandals Resorts and Sandals Emerald Bay does not disappoint! It is sophisticated and luxurious with great attention to service. It is definitely one of the best Exuma resorts.
Sandals resorts are ideal for couples and this one features:
Sandals Emerald Bay is surrounded by 500 acres of nature at it's finest and set in it's own little enclave.
There have been over 4000 reviews for this resort, can you believe it?
And the good news?
People love it here. They love the grounds, the staff, formal and casual meals and they note that the excursions aren't too far out.
Fowl Cay Resort is really interesting and definitely different than many resorts. It is set on a 50-acre private island and has 6 unique villas spread across it. (Check out their resort map here. )
This is also an all inclusive resort of sorts with the following included in the price:
93% of past guests have scored this resort a 5/5! Wow, that's is a real achievement and something that has definitely raised our eyebrows (yours too?).
Lumina Point Resort is located on the remote Stocking Island. This is just off of Great Exuma. It's a beautiful, intimate boutique eco-resort.
This resort has a wonderful "green"ethic and is working hard at being sustainable and eco-friendly.
You can access Lumina Point Resort only by private boat so as you may imagine, this is an unspoiled, non-commercialized, luxury resort spot.
There are just 12 water-front rooms with farm-to-table restaurants: The Beacon and The Lookout.
Activities include the spa (by appointment), yoga, Hobie Cat sailboats, kayaking, paddleboards, snorkeling, and hiking.
If you're looking for something smaller and private, this is definitely a spot to keep high on your list.
St. Francis Resort is on Stocking Island which is a 5 minute ferry ride from the mainland (and Great Exuma).
Here you'll find an amazing 5 mile beach, reefs to snorkel, Hobie Cat sailing, blue holes, underwater caves, wildlife and more.
Rooms overlook the Atlantic and your stay has breakfast and internet included. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.
Reviewers do love this resort saying:
We hope you found the resort you were looking for. The Exuma area is really unique and has so much to offer.
