Tiamo opened in 2001 as a destination for adults who want to reconnect with each other and with nature in a luxurious, tropical private setting. Tiamo offer work and Internships in the Bahamas.
Tiamo is a very different kind of resort. Here, tourists don’t crowd the streets and TVs, computers and cell phones are nowhere to be found.
Our Nature Concierge leads guests on complimentary snorkelling adventures, kayak trips and nature tours, teaching about the plant, animal and marine ecosystems of Tiamo.
Andros is the largest of the Bahamas Out Islands and is considered to be the largest unexplored tract of land in the western hemisphere. Fewer than 8,000 people live on the island.
In the early 1900s, the land where Tiamo is built was known as the North Quarters and was inhabited by freed slaves who primarily lived as farmers or sponge fishermen. They used handcrafted sailboats made on the beach to transport what they didn’t use to sell in Nassau.
South Andros is home to the world’s longest chain of linked blue holes, ecological treasures teeming with angelfish, stingrays, butterfly fish, barracuda, parrotfish, lobster, schools of jacks and French grunts, as well as corals and sponges. It is also the bone fishing capital of the world.
Affectionately called the “Big Yard,” the South Andros Barrier Reef is the third largest barrier reef in the world and one of the last remaining stable reefs in the Western Hemisphere. Here guests experience some of the best snorkeling and diving in the Bahamas. Divers who brag about “doing the Tongue” are referring to the area here where the reef drops nearly 6,000 feet into the Tongue of the Ocean.
One of the smallest tropical resorts in the world, Tiamo has room for only 22 guests in 11 hand-built beach cottages set on 12 acres of beach front and surrounded by 125 acres of preserved wilderness.
Energy for everything from the ceiling fans to stove tops comes from solar power. Tiamo operates one of the largest solar-generating systems used by a private tourism facility anywhere in the region.
Tiamo… the quintessential unspoilt luxury island hideaway in The Bahamas you’ve been hoping to find but never knew existed this close to home.
An idyllic tropical private island paradise, unchanged in fifty years and home to a colourful kaleidoscope of exotic sea creatures and rare wildlife, South Andros Island lies in the white sand-fringed archipelago of the Bahamian Out Islands, north-east of Cuba and a little way south-east of Miami. The pristine green island is dotted with quaint townships and water flats set in a virgin wilderness.
