The Bahamas - a favorite among vacation seekers and cruise ports. But the Bahamas are known for much more than just being a trendy hot spot, it’s also known for incredibly flavorful Bahamian food like cornbread, peas and rice and heated seafood.
The world of Carnival has also been widely spread online in the last few years, with celebs like Rihanna and Cardi B attending the festival. Most impressively and attract-worthy are the vast options of marine life such as the lionfish, nurse sharks, and angelfish to be discovered by experienced scuba divers and snorkelers.
However, what is most important when booking a vacation to this beautiful Caribbean island are the inexpensive all-inclusive resorts. Choosing the right hotel that accommodates all of your wants and needs is essential to ensuring your vacation is everything you’d ever hoped for.
Exuma Palms Hotel Is The Leading All-Inclusive In Exuma
Featuring a stunning cream-colored exterior with white fenced balconies sits directly on the legendary Three Sisters Beach. This tragic love story involves three sisters who, unknowingly, fell in love with the same British man. They went to confront him on his ship as he departed but tragically drowned. It is said that the three rocks grew in the exact places where they drowned.
Each room comes with the standard flat-screen television and basic cable, but the hotel itself is filled with water activities, a bar and lounge, and the beach. A short hop, skip and a jump away there are other locally-run restaurants, including a burger shack, and a hookah bar.
The Perfect Quiet Getaway Is At Hideaways, Palm Bay
Enjoy a little hideaway at the beautiful Hideaways Hotel in Exuma. Another beachfront all-inclusive resort, this well-known resort offers a different type of accommodations. At Hideaways, guests are welcomed to book between a studio-style apartment, cottages with a bedroom or two, and more luxuriously, villas that can host up to three bedrooms and eight people.
Hideaways also offer guests the ability to choose between their in-ground pool with a swim-up bar or their own private beach. Only steps away from their pool is their famous grill restaurant, making sure all their guests are well fed and well hydrated while they relax in the sun.
To make your vacation all the more relaxing and refreshing, a detox from reality if you will, the Hideaways resort also offers massage packages, a private patio to watch the morning’s sunrise or the evening’s sunset with your loved one, and honeymoon packages for those looking to celebrate in style!
No, Pelican Bay Isn't Filled With Pelicans
Rated the “Happiest Hotel in the Bahamas,” this hotel comes with everything including inflatable swan floats for the perfect social media picture.

The restaurant located on the resort is known as the Sabor Restaurant and prices range from $7 to $27 created by a local chef. The chef infuses tropical flavors and spices with fresh ingredients to create a unique and memorable menu. Restaurant patrons have raved about the restaurant’s flatbreads, salads, and children’s menu.
The Pelican Bay also has a spa on-site, a breakfast bar and a fitness room. The hotel also offers excursions and valet services to your activities, including to a golf course located nearby. Most impressively, the well-known Port Lucaya Marketplace is a short walk away. The market is made up of various pastel-colored storefronts that overlook the boat docks. The locals sell handmade clothes, traditionally touristy-clothes that say how much you love the Bahamas and Port Lucaya, jewelry shops, and hats.
