Nandana, Bahamas

press12In the Caribbean, you expect conch fritters, rum punch and a visuals that are either Addison Mizner Mediterranean revival or predictable British colonial. So it comes as something of a surprise to find yourself nibbling Argentine-style beef empanadas, sipping a Napa Merlot, being massaged by a Bahamian curiously named Alpacino and, most strikingly, soaking up an aesthetic that’s straight out of Southeast Asia, all temple rooflines, Thai nagas and Cambodian statuary. Nandana, which has four bedrooms plus a safari-style tent, has a 50-foot yacht for fishing, all sorts of land and water toys, and a 400- bottle wine cellar, but perhaps its biggest luxury is its own private airport with immigration facilities.
