History & Story
Previously in 2001 Tiamo was Fishing Lodge, South Andros : Capital of the World for bonefishing (Salt Fly fishing).
In 2011 with the new owner we decided to open the first boutique hotel in the Bahamas, but we keep the eco spririt because it is located at 10 mn from the world’s 3rd biggest reef.
October and November , every year since 2011.
Each year, we renew furnishings or install new technologies.

We received, once, a request from a guest who wanted to bring his dog along with him. Unfortunately, we had to inform him that we cannot allow dogs on the property as long as there are other guests staying on the island. That’s when he decided to rent the entire island for two weeks, just for him and his dog. Isn’t that incredible? He even came back a second time, and again he brought his dog with him.

Restaurants & Bars
• Tiamo restaurant
The sophisticated, natural approach that defines our resort’s philosophy is applied to the food we serve in our restaurant, and our Michelin-trained chef “ Keith”, Young Bahamian guy, in love with the Kitchen, will ensure you’re in very capable hands, a real passion for him. Savour the flavours of carefully crafted Caribbean and fusion cuisine, made using the freshest local and organic ingredients, and complemented by an excellent selection of wines from some of the world’s best vineyards.
The ambience of the Great Room is stylish yet relaxing. Colorful artwork adorns the sea blue wood walls, candles light the tables, and the gentle, tropical breeze and sounds of the sea form the ultimate backdrop as you enjoy your meal. Beach-side chic dining at its best. And of course, all your dining is included in the price of your stay (except if special request).
For an extra serving of romance with your evening meal, choose to dine alfresco on the terrace. Come at sunset to take in the splendid views over the pool to the ocean as you enjoy the European inspired fusion cuisine and a glass of something refreshing. Or arrive later for a moonlit dinner for two under the Caribbean night sky and let the tantalizing aromas of barbecued seafood that drift up from the lower deck set your appetite racing.
