Nandana– “paradise” in Sanskrit — spells honeymoon, wedding, romance

If you’re looking for a wedding site, place to honeymoon or just a romantic trysting spot, Nandana–which means Paradise in the ancient tongue of Sanskrit–might be just the ticket.

The new, luxurious estate hugs the seashore on a secluded beach near West End, Grand Bahama. Each of the private villas can accommodate 10 people. While I haven’t been there yet, it sounds simply divine especially if you go in the off-season when rates drop nearly half. Read on.

The Private Resort goes outside the traditional villa vacation bar with a dizzying array of amenities and activities that include gourmet cuisine, on-site masseuse, 120′ infinity pool, Jacuzzi, Jet Skis, ATV’s, 18-hole golf course, beach volleyball and more.

Designed by a renowned architectural firm in an Asian beach house style. There are six separate buildings, a main house with 40′ ceilings and five richly-appointed and free standing bedroom suites. The interior of the property has been constructed entirely of natural materials with massive amounts of imported Burmese teak covering the floors, walls and ceilings and natural stone forming most other surfaces. A professionally designed lighting system has been installed to emphasize the property’s many distinctive architectural features.
