Glamour, History & Romance

Graycliff is more than a hotel, it’s an experience. Dating back to the 18th century, this beautiful colonial mansion is rumored to have been built by the pirate Captain John Howard Graysmith. Throughout its illustrious history the hotel has played host to many of the world’s luminaries, including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Sir Winston Churchill, Aristotle Onassis, and The Beatles. Today, Graycliff is one of the most unique hotels in The Bahamas, with charming accommodations, exceptional amenities, and award-winning dining.

Combining refined, old-world style with distinctly modern conveniences, Graycliff Hotel features 20 guest rooms set among two swimming pools and lush gardens. It also has the first five-star restaurant in the Caribbean, one of the largest private wine collections in the world, the renowned Graycliff Cigar Company—which produces handcrafted cigars on site—and the Graycliff Chocolatier where visitors can tour the factory for a hands-on experience making chocolate. Surrounded by tropical gardens and with views of the azure sea just beyond, Graycliff provides an intimate and magnificent retreat, deep in the heart of Nassau.
