Escape Nassau for the Day at Graycliff Hotel with Lunch
Tour Participation Requirements
Hustle. Bustle. Whew! Nassau's marketplace and pier embody a centuries-long reputation as a booming, commercial center. High energy? To be expected in a destination once ruled by carousing pirates. But this is the Caribbean, after all, also luring everyone from royalty to celebrities to everyday humans alike, on their quest for quiet refuge. Ready to flee that flamboyant vibe for a while? Graycliff would like to show you its tranquil side.
Enter this picture-perfect inn, the city's first, nestled in the heart of Old Nassau and overlooking Government House. Surrounded by tropical gardens and the azure sea beyond, this idyllic setting is restful, resplendent, and befitting your personal oasis. No matter where you're resting your head tonight, the team here makes you feel like family, welcoming you with a refreshing beverage (two are included).
Follow them through your home sweet mansion for the day, as they share its pedigree and the amenities that are at your disposal. In 1694, long before becoming this sanctuary, Nassau's first church was built here. The Spanish razed it, but some ruins remain within Graycliff's architecture. Captain Graysmith, plundering pirate of the Caribbean, raised this structure years later, perhaps his own hideaway from the notorious schooner, Graywolf.
On your way to unwind poolside where you'll enjoy a three-course luncheon provided by the Graycliff Restaurant, ask your escort to point out the cottage where Winston Churchill used to stay. Palm trees swaying above, frosty beverage in hand, towels at the ready, changing rooms with showers just steps away. Now this is how to execute the perfect escape.
Rolling cacao and cigar cravings into one
Graycliff knows the perfect complements to laid-back living and coveted wines worth millions. The hotel's house chocolatier uses mango, lime, coconut, genips, and sea grapes, not to mention tomato, basil, and bacon. CEO Enrico Garzaroli and family also created Graycliff Cigar Company. What began as a single roller in the restaurant entryway is now an award-winning, on-site venture with 16 master rollers. Fidel Castro's former personal torcedore blended "The Graycliff."
