A new place, confidential, in the Bahamas that should be talked about: remember his name, The Other Side, an ecoresort of a dozen tents, north of the island of Eleuthera. It is the beauty of the Bahamas without the worldliness of Harbor. But with the chic, anyway, since the hotelier, behind this new paradise hut, is none other than Ben Simmons of the Ocean View that bohemian chic lovers already know.
“The project was to create a place powered by the sun,” he says. Neither quite hotel nor quite guest house, this hybrid formula allows to invest the place as if you were with friends, feet in the water. Yoga between lagoon and pool, paddle with turtles, picking in the garden for lunch or just relax in the room
The Other Side is a beautiful solar powered “Glamping” Site situated a long small secluded beach, populated only by swaying palms, our tents, shacks and salad garden. The property provides privacy and seclusion, but also proximity to the quaint town of harbour island and to the vast beautiful expanse of eleuthera. The concept is a blend of home meets safari tempered with a few conventional hotel amenities…
We have seven tents on property. Four are communal tents that each have a designated purpose: reading, drinking, eating and playing.
The Sleeping Tents
The sleeping tents are nestled along the properties private beach and are spacious but with an understated grandeur. Each tent has Hardwood floors, a four poster bed, 2 benches, outdoor bathtub, walk in shower, his and her sinks, wifi and Air-conditioning.
We have three shacks that sit on the hill top overlooking the property. They are a modest size and designed with a simple sense of purpose that says “just enjoy the view”. They each have a large sundeck, a king four poster bed, air conditioning, his and her sinks, wifi and simply stunning view.
The Great outdoors
Harbour island, is about 7 minutes away via our boat service that is available on our beautiful 30′ tender. A visit here will contemplate shopping, fine dining and late night discos as well as it’s infamous pink powdery beach.
Eleuthera is full of lush landscapes that feels vast and untouched. It’s about relaxing on deserted beaches, paddle boarding, surfing, exploring caves and jumping in to blue holes. It’s driving with the top down in pursuit of relaxation or adventure and the sense of tranquility that both can deliver.
If you don’t feel like leaving the ‘campus’ sit or do yoga by the pool, paddle board out to see the turtles that frequent our waters, throw some seeds down in our vegetable garden or have a masseuse come to your room to release some tension.
