New Providence Island, Bahamas

New Providence Island is considered one of the most exquisite spots in the Bahamas, if not the entire Caribbean, so it’s hardly surprising that this island paradise is now home to one of the world’s most exclusive oceanfront communities, the 600-acre Albany on New Providence.

Albany’s name is inspired by the historic beachside mansion in the center of the community that now houses a fine dining restaurant and ocean side lounge. Originally owned by French filmmaker Jean Chalopin, the Albany House has been the site of two movies including James Bond film Casino Royale and it’s famous romantic beach scene.

No detail is left unaccounted for in this unparalleled blend of awe-inspiring natural beauty, chic accommodations, and extraordinary amenities.

Albany’s 18-hole championship golf course designed by golf great Ernie Els. The 7,400-yard links-style course plays through windswept dunes and showcased scenic and strategically challenging water features to make even low handicappers look twice.

The Els-designed golf course offers a authentic golf course experience with fairways free of residential development allowing players to enjoy the pure magic of tropical golf.

With four sets of tees and a range of shot values, the beautiful course caters to both the scratch golfer and the recreational player as well. First-class practice facilities complement the golf course, including a 400- yard driving range and three-acre short game practice area with two chipping greens and a stunning putting green to get your roll and speed dialed in.

Albany is also home to the largest mega yacht marina in the Bahamas, with 71 large premier slips, all equipped with the necessary features to handle larger vessels up to 240 feet. Designed to rival the great resort ports of the world, Albany Marina will eventually feature a collection of luxurious residences and a handful of boutique retail shops, office spaces and restaurants.

In addition, the resort has equine and tennis facilities, a state of the art fitness pavilion, a spa with an extensive menu of services, a children’s activity center, and a clubhouse with a pool.

Of course, a resort of this status is home to a variety of culinary options. Fine dining establishment Aviva offers gourmet cuisine and premier wines served beachside or in the elegantly appointed restaurant. For more casual dining, Albany offers the Vesper Bar & Lounge, Wave, Nineteen Grill, the Azul poolside bar and the Footprints restaurant; each one is uniquely themed and has a delectable assortment of exotic cocktails, fine wines and an international selection of menu items to choose from, and naturally they all take pride in offering an exceptional standard of service.

Finally, a world-class resort is not complete without a holistic place to relax and rejuvenate one’s mind and body. Albany’s spa and salon offers serene surroundings with private treatment rooms, setting the tone for a soothing and indulgent experience.

With all of this luxury on offer, you’ll never want to leave Albany or New Providence Island – and you don’t have to! Real estate ownership options within the resort are varied and lavish, ranging from 4,700-11,700 square feet with stunning golf course or ocean views. There are two stylistic options sophisticated and gracious residences – villas with a traditional Bahamian style of architecture, or contemporary residences overlooking the marina.
