We just returned from a week at Fowl Cay Resort. We were in the Bird Cage Villa. We came in with very high expectations, and they were exceeded. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful, you are immediately welcomed with open arms (literally) and before long you feel like family. The water is remarkable, snorkling is some of the best we have ever seen, and there is an island near by habitated by tame-'ish' wild pigs! They literally swim out to your boat for food....(just ask the chef and they will arm you with scraps). The mornings begin with warm baked snacks delivered silently to your villas kitchen. When you arise, your coffee pot has been turned on, there is a newspaper on your table, and you can watch the sun rise from your private oasis. Then, off to your outdoor shower before jumping in your own private boat to explore the neighboring islands. Don't miss swimming with the Nurse Sharks at neighboring Compass Cay Marina, and the Grotto Cave was indescribable. If you are heading out for the the day they will prepare a lunch for you to enjoy on any of the countless islands in the area.
The evenings often began early in the afternoon with Kalic (local bahamian beer) and a stroll on the beach. Then a fabulous meal served by an excellent chef each night. Lobster, Steak, Lobster and Steak, Rack of Lamb, the works.
On our departing day, we elected to take a sea-plane to Nassau to fly home from there. Paul from Safari Seaplanes landed the aircraft in front of our villa, and parked his plane on our beach. We said our heartfelt goodbyes and flew off, with thoughts of when we could next return to this paradise.
We could not have had a better time. Worth every single penny.
