Orange Hill Beach Inn & Stuart Cove
Bahamas – Nassau
Welcome to Orange Hill Beach Inn, your Bahamas hotel destination with the charm of the islands and the convenience of home. Set on a hilltop overlooking the ocean, the hotel is 50 steps from a sandy beach and crystal clear water of the Bahamas. This 32-room hotel is the ideal place for a casual relaxed vacation, where you will quickly be adopted by your new family and friends. There are a variety of rooms to choose from and the rates are very reasonable.
New Providence Island (Nassau, Bahamas) is the perfect spot for a week long family vacation, a long weekend away or an overnight stay before you travel to one of the Bahamian out-islands. The hotel is a favorite layover point for guests traveling to Small Hope Bay Lodge in Andros since they are only five minutes from Nassau International Airport. A perfect stopover point to relax, have a drink and get into the island mood.
Although this quiet inn is the perfect spot to sit by the pool and dive into a good book, Nassau features many other island attractions that you can “dive” into – all within minutes from your hotel. For more than 20 years, the hotel has catered to divers looking for the famous Bahamas vacation diversity – wall diving, wreck diving and swimming with sharks along the Tongue of the Ocean.
