If you ask us, there are a lot of people who don’t realize the full potential of their vacation at a Bahamas resort.
We get it. The Bahamas offer a lot to take in – beaches, swimming, dolphins, shopping – and it can be a little overwhelming if it’s your first time here. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get the most out of your Bahamas resort experience. Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your stay at a place like the Grand Lucayan.
Tip #1: Use all of the extras. Does your resort offer horseback riding? A full spa? An exercise room? Saunas? A swimming pool? Why not take the “buffet” approach and sample a little of everything before you decide how the rest of your vacation is going to go? After all, these amenities are all available to you throughout your entire stay – you might as well put your time to its fullest use.
Tip #2: Engage the staff. If the Bahamas resort you’re staying at is worth its sea salt, then they’re going to have great service. So make sure you put them to good use by engaging with them, having a friendly conversation about their recommendations or which of their services you’re not using. One conversation can change the entire quality of your trip, so give it a whirl!
Tip #3: Act like you live there. It can be easy to go a little overboard with this one, so here’s what we mean: you should be as comfortable at your Bahamas resort as you are at home. Talk to staff like they’re old friends. Use the full pool. Tell the staff at the spa exactly what you want. Get outside and enjoy the sun. Bahamas resorts are set up to keep you as comfortable as possible in a new, exotic location – act like you live there and soon it will feel like you do!
