The Bluff House: A beach resort with an exclusive sunset view
Feb 06, 2017
We love these things about Green Turtle Cay's sunset retreat
These are our Top 5 favorite things about this western facing resort that completely straddles Green Turtle Cay. The Bluff House marina overlooks White Sound while its private beach sits on the Sea of Abaco. The resort is easily accessible by ferry from the public dock in Treasure Cay, Great Abaco.
We love sunsets at the Bluff House because this western facing resort has an unobstructed view of the ocean-sky horizon line. There are three comfortable locations on property to watch the nightly sunset: the beach, bar and your private balcony. The water is warm and still when you take a sunset swim at the beach. As the backdrop to bar conversation, the sunset makes its presence known, casting burt orange shadows all around. From the balcony of an upper level suite, the sunset creates a romantic atmosphere.
Neighboring resorts on Green Turtle Cay sit harbor side, so their beaches cannot compare to the Bluff House, which has a private beach washed by the Sea of Abaco. This beach is shaded by many coconut trees and comes equipped with loungers and hammocks. It has a volley ball net for beach play, and a beach bar on its northern border.
We love that the Bluff House doesn’t leave out catamarans. One of our favorite things is its 46-slip marina because it has slots for boats with a 26-ft beam, suitable for catamarans cruising through the Abacos. To reserve one of the five catamaran slips you have to contact the marina.
Upper Level Luxury Suite
There is no elevator to get to these third floor luxury suites, but they are still the rooms we love the most, especially the most north western room. This room sits furthest from the Tranquil Turtle Beach Bar, which muzzles any potential noise pollution, and as an upper level room it has more privacy and romantic appeal. We love the Kohler soaker tubs in these rooms and the overall modern design, including the natural bamboo flooring.
No crowds allowed
The 12-acre property has a few guest cottages, but the principle resort only has eight rooms, this means the size is cozy and never crowded. The resort is also isolated from the rest of the island, so it feels excluisive.
