The Bahamas: Day 2 - One & Only


Our second day in the Bahamas was very relaxing. We woke up late, had a nice, long workout at the Atlantis fitness center and then ate a leisurely lunch at Shark Bites by the the Royal Towers swimming pool.

At night, we dined at the tres elegant and extraordinarily charming Dune restaurant at the One & Only Ocean Club which is a few miles from Atlantis in Nassau. It felt priviliged to be at the One & Only - the resort is very exclusive and secluded from the rest of the world. No wonder that rooms here cost upwards of $1000 a night!

Dune is owned by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the internationally known chef and restauraurateur. The menu is French-Asian with Bahamian influences. We had drinks at the Dune Beach Bar pictured above before heading to the dining area.

Here are a few things we ate at Dune:

Sesame rice crackers with a spicy and crunchy peanut sauce


Mussels in a chili and lemongrass sauce


Sweet pea soup with long croutons


Tropical sorbet icecream (the coconut sorbet is to die for)


Are you hungry as yet?
