Do you offer airport transfers?
Yes! We provide airport transfers for all of our guests. Just send us your flight details before you arrive.
Are your properties beachfront?
Some of our vacation home rentals, such as Beach Cottage and Shell, are beachfront homes. Although luxurious, the EMBRACE Resort is not beachfront but is instead located near the airport. For this reason, we try to make up for it by providing personalized service to our guests as well as having a pool and Jacuzzi available. And since the island is less than 2 sq mi. in area, none of the beaches are very far away!
Do you provide beach towels?
Yes. All of our rooms include beach towels, as well as small coolers for enjoying your drinks out on the sand.
Can you pick me up from a dock?
Yep! If you’re arriving by boat, please call VHF CH16 “3Ns”, and we’ll come and get you from where you’re docked.
Do you offer early check-in?
We offer complimentary early check-in for our guests, provided that the villa or beach house is available.
Do I need a license to get married in the Bahamas?
Yes. A Bahamian marriage license is required for anyone planning on getting married in the Bahamas. You may opt to be married in your home country before arrival, and we can perform a wedding blessing/ceremony in the Bahamas for you.
Can I use my marriage license from my country?
You may opt to be married in your home country before arrival, and we can perform a wedding blessing/ceremony in the Bahamas for you rather than a legal wedding. This option is for those who want to avoid the legalities of getting married in the Bahamas but would like to enjoy the beauty of the Bahamas to host a ceremony for themselves and their loved ones.
