Abaco Club, Bahamas (Exclusive Resorts)
These seven four-bedroom luxury villas at The Abaco Club, are beachfront retreats with a distinctly Bahamian vibe. The residences are housed within The Abaco Club, a resort set on 534 acres beside a scenic cove. There's a resort pool, a luxury spa and a clubhouse. The 18-hole golf course, the world's first Scottish-style links built in a tropical location, was designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie and is the resort's highlight.
Of course, golf is hardly the only activity on this island. Right outside your backdoor, there are secluded beaches with their powdered sugared sand and blue waters to sink into.
Each luxury villa is furnished in classic Bahamian décor with private plunge pools, gourmet kitchens and rooftop decks with views of the ocean and golf course.
Take your private golf cart out for a cruise and explore the resort. First stop, the spa. Book a Soothing Tropics Therapeutic Sun Repair Facial or signature Lazy Parrot Massage. For lunch, head to the clubhouse and tuck into lobster and conch followed by a selection of fresh tropical fruit. Then for the rest of the afternoon, try your hand at bonefishing, windsurfing or Hobie Cat sailing. Go on a diving adventure or charter a private catamaran trip.
Outside the resort, there's plenty to explore. Head to nearby Guana Cay and indulge in the beautiful beaches, steep bluffs and rolling hills - or take the ferry to Hope Town, just across the harbour, to climb the 101 steps up the candy-striped lighthouse for a mesmerising view of the island and the surrounding sea.
