On the island of Andros, located about fifty kilometers southwest of Nassau, time seems to have stood still, and life moves at the slow pace of the ocean waters. Far from the hustle and bustle of the capital, Andros is an intimate, authentic, almost confidential part of the archipelago. “The fifth largest island in the Caribbean is one of the least known,” according to Vincent Wallace, the Bahamian Minister of Tourism.
Although the majority of Bahamian islands owe their subsistence to mass tourism, Andros has preserved its beauty thanks to the local authority’s accent on the policy of eco-tourism. The island’s great biodiversity includes the third longest coral reef in the world after that of Australia and Belize. It also boasts one of the world’s oldest diving centers. Nicknamed the “island of blue holes” these strange, natural and circular pools conceal sumptuous underwater caverns which attract a great many deep sea divers fascinated by the beauty of these ocean depths.
In the southern part of Andros, 10 elegant and discreet luxury eco-lodges surround the South Bight cove. There’s no need to look for the road leading to the Tiamo Resorts; there is none. The only possible access is by sea. They’re so far removed from the outside world that very few Bahamians are aware of the eco-resort’s existence. In 2003, the owner, honored by numerous NGOs concerned with environmental protection, revealed his identity and made his property as one of the most environmentally conscious sites in the archipelago. The American journal USA Today selected it as one of its ten most beautiful sites.
The ten cottages are on stilts and built with pinewood in traditional Caribbean style with an eco-chic minimalism. The colors were inspired by the surrounding nature, and the white fabrics create a feeling of calm and serenity. Designed, built and managed with the intention of minimizing the impact on the environment, Tiamo Resorts can take pride in having been one of the first Caribbean establishments to use solar energy for its infrastructures. The combination of luxury and respect for the environment functions in perfect harmony at the Tiamo Resorts, proving, if proof is necessary, that eco-tourism and impeccable service are not incompatible.
Tiamo Resorts is an ideal destination for couples although there are numerous activities for children as well. Above all, it is a peaceful retreat entirely devoted to respect for the environment.
