Weekend Getaway to Exuma: Augusta Bay

The Resort:

Augusta Bay is an intimate beachfront boutique resort on Queen’s Highway overlooking Exuma’s gorgeous Elizabeth Harbour.  When I walked into the lobby, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful view. You can see straight out to the pool and the cove as soon as you enter the door. The 16 suites all have balconies facing the water so you won’t be disappointed with the view.

The Suites:

I had a  ground floor King Suite all to myself right next to the pool. The bed was so comfortable I slept like a baby my whole trip and I usually have trouble sleeping. The rooms all have a mini fridge, cable TV, Free Wifi and coffee making facilities. The Bathrooms are gorgeous and have stone and marble throughout. My favorite part of the bathroom was the HUGE  shower and the super comfortable plush robes they provide. The patios/balconies attached to each room all overlook the pool and sundeck and have really comfortable furniture.

Continental breakfast is served in the main dining room or you can sit outside on the deck (included in rate). They also serve lunch and dinner at the resort and offer both local and international selections along with bar service. If you want something different you can walk or drive a few minutes up the road to the Fish Fry and choose between the different restaurants they have to offer.


The staff was always very helpful and they let you know right away that they will gladly arrange anything you want. They had information available for airport transportation, tours, boat charters and spa appointments.  They also have snorkeling gear so you can explore the cove or kayaks if you’re feeling a little more adventurous.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at Augusta Bay and was able to relax and rejuvenate. When I wasn’t out exploring I was glad to spend time in my room. The patio  is also a great spot to listen to the waves and read a book. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made sure I had everything I needed on my stay with them.

If you are visiting Exuma for a weekend, I would highly recommend checking out Augusta Bay.
