Resorts World Bimini / North Bimini, The Bahamas

This one truly is a world of its own. Situated on the charming Bahamian Out Island of North Bimini, only 50 miles (and a 20 minute sea plane flight) from the coast of Miami, Resorts World Bimini beckons beach bums with a newly-opened 305 room Hilton hotel that’s adding some luxury to this colorful locale in a major way. Can’t choose between floating down the lazy river pool from your swim-up suite or watching the sunset from the rooftop infinity pool? It’s okay — neither can we. Since Resorts World Bimini is home to the largest marina in The Bahamas, boaters can effortlessly slip into this slice of paradise — from speedboats to mega-yachts. Known as the big game fishing capital of the world, Bimini has long lured fishermen, boaters, and divers with its crystal Caribbean waters, laid-back nautical lifestyle, and mystical intrigue. Whether you want to hang with the high rollers at the only casino in the world with panoramic water views, or channel your inner-Hemingway with a big game fishing excursion, you can unwind from your day at one of Resorts World Bimini’s six restaurants and bars or with some shopping at Fisherman’s Village, the property’s open-air promenade. You’ll be on island time in no time.
