Our favourite rooms
All rooms are private and have direct access to the beach with two chairs set among palm trees. Of all of them, the one-bedroom Island Cottage Suite, Pigeon Plum, is spacious, secluded and ideal for a couple’s getaway. The suite's wraparound veranda is the best place on the island for a sunset cocktail.
Surrounded by cushioned loungers, Kamalame Cay’s heated beachfront freshwater pool is next to the self-serve tiki bar.
Float with the fish during your spa treatment. Plunked at the end of a long dock over the ocean, the spa sets its massage beds over glass floors so guests can look down at the kaleidoscopic swirls of ocean life during treatments. Some of the most delicious ingredients in the Bahamas appear on the spa menu; massages and scrubs use scrumptious ingredients including wild mango, avocado, lemongrass, basil and coconut.
Pack your scuba certification for exploring the vertical ocean caves.
Welcome. Baby cots are free, and rollaway beds are $195 per night. Babysitting can be arranged with hotel staff for $15 an hour. The restaurant has a children's menu.
Children of all ages will have fun at Kamalame. Older children will love the water sports. Little ones can play in gentle waves.
The one-bedroom villa suite is suited for families with younger children (between three and 12 yeas old). One-bedroom beach suites also have a separate living room that can be converted into a children’s bedroom.
The island’s 96 acres offer plenty of secluded beaches and gardens for children to explore. There are beach toys, kayaks and fishing equipment available for children to borrow. Though the resort does not offer a schedule of activities, the staff can arrange hermit crab races, nature walks, scavenger hunts and other adventures.
There is no lifeguard at the freshwater pool, but there is a shallow end. The hotel also offers inflatables and floats for children to borrow.

The property champions solar power. The staff also work with a Bahamian eco group to preserve the reef, and serve only mature, in-season fish. The hotel also works with local fishermen to capture the invasive lionfish – which preys on indigenous fish and disrupts the local ecosystem – to serve as a delicious entrée at the restaurant.
