The Bahamas has only a handful of all-inclusive resorts, but the selection is excellent. Both the SuperClubs and Sandals chains operate Bahamas all-inclusives, Riu Resorts has an all-inclusive on Paradise Island, and Club Med adds its unique flair to an all-inclusive in the Out Islands.

SuperClubs' only Bahamas all-inclusive resort is located on famous Cable Beach in Nassau; it has 400 rooms and suites in an eight-story tower and a separate four-story wing. Dining choices are somewhat limited: a buffet-style restaurant, pasta bar, and the more upscale Garden of Eden, along with a poolside grill. Amenities include watersports, tennis, a fitness center, and a rock-climbing wall. Downtown Nassau is just five minutes away, and you can also walt to Cable Beach's casino.
Located in the Exumas -- part of the Out Islands of the Bahamas -- the former Four Seasons Great Exuma has become an all-inclusive member of the Sandals resort family but retained a high level of amenities, including butler service.

Not only is Our Lucaya
one of the most complete resorts in the region, it's also close to the U.S., reasonably priced, and offers a degree of familiarity and reliability thanks to its participation in the Starwood family of resorts. The Radisson offers an all-inclusive package.
Upscale all-inclusive resort is located in easily accessible Nassau but also boasts its own private island for the proper measure of exclusivity.
