We all need a getaway once in a while. A place to go to escape that never ending cycle of work, responsibilities, stress and even sometimes people. So if you fall into that category and find yourself desperately needing a fun yet peaceful vacation I would suggest visiting the Grand Lucayan in Freeport, Bahamas. The Grand Lucayan is a resort that is literally all in one. This resort has an amazing beach, several pools that also include an in-pool bar, restaurants and other amenities such as tennis, golf and a Spa. As soon as I reached the resort, I checked my bags with the friendly staff and basically ran to the beach. The weather was gorgeous and just playing in the waves of the water relieved all stress and worries that I had. If you’re a person that loves being in the water like me, you’ll also enjoy the pools where they provide floats so you can lay back and let the pool carry you away.
Besides the fun amenities, the Grand Lucayan also has beautiful and clean rooms. If you stay at the Grand Lucayan please stay in an ocean view room. Why? Because the ocean view will change your entire experience. I sat on the balcony/ patio every day by myself. It was the most relaxing and relieving feeling of my whole trip. Maybe because I’m really big on views or maybe because it’s just a great way to reflect and find peace. I also had a bird friend come join me, I guess he wanted in on the experience as well.
The Grand Lucayan is also in a great location. Directly across the street from the resort is Port Lucaya. Port Lucaya is an outdoor center with shops great for buying gifts and souvenirs, restaurants that will provide you a delicious taste of the island and bars for nightly entertainment. In walking distance from the resort is also the Treasure Bay Casino which is open 24 hours. Sounds fun doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to spend their day at the beach, eat until their stomach is stuffed and then try their luck at the casino all in one day and in one location. I know I would, would you?
