French Leave Resort in The Bahamas has undergone an update to its 270 acres of beachfront luxury property and villas. The resort also became part of the Autograph Collection Hotels line in January.

The property, located on the island of Eleuthera and overlooking Cupid’s Cay, sits astride Governor’s Harbor in the vicinity of the island’s famous pineapple farms and Haynes Library. Eleuthera is said to be the island where Bahamanian civilization first began in 1648, when it was “discovered” by Captain William Sayles, a prominent Bermudan landholder who arrived there with a group of Puritans. (Sayles would later become the first governor of colonial South Carolina, and founded the city of Charleston in 1669.)

To fit in with the Caribbean and British colonial influences on the island’s history, French Leave Resort’s color scheme entails whites with blue tones. Shells, coral and other sea-sourced artifacts decorate the rooms. Each villa comes equipped with its own golf cart and washer/dryer for extended stay purposes.

The resort also offers a fitness center, infinity pool, in-room iPads to order services and a beach concierge.

Appropriately, the resorts’ restaurant is called 1648, named in honor of the year of the country’s beginnings. Caribbean seafood and tropical drinks are the house specialties.

By early 2018, French Leave Resort aims to expand to 20 cottages and also open a spa within the property as well.
