We just returned from Tiamo for our honeymoon. We loved every minute of it! It was the most beautiful and relaxing place we have ever been. The Tiamo Team works enthusiastically to ensure that you enjoy your stay and feel right at home. This is a resort staff that truly understands the definition of customer service! We enjoyed snorkeling, fishing, sailing, swimming, looking for starfish and stingrays, and sunbathing. The food was excellent - some of the best meals we have ever had. At night, we could choose whether we wanted to mingle with the other guests (who were quite friendly!) or spend time with just each other. We did not go to the spa but we were so relaxed -- we didn't need to! We recommend Tiamo without hesitation - a great trip and we will return in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed in Cottage 6 and were quite happy. All of the cottages seemed similar and were just a shor...

My husband and I spent a week at Tiamo for our ten year anniversary. We left three small children at home and we were SO excited to have some quiet relaxation. We stayed in one of the pool villas right on the beach- it was very clean, we loved the open air shower and private pool. There were several things to do off the beach like paddle boarding, canoeing, snorkeling. Or they have a scuba guide there if you are a diver. There were several people there for bonefishing too. I am more of a read by the pool kind of person when I am away from the kids so I liked that there were things to do, but nothing we had to do. The food was AMAZING. We looked forward to and loved every meal! The staff was very friendly. My only recommendation is to use the OFF spray and oil they provide because those sand flies and mosquitos will get you at night!!

Just returned from Tiamo in South Andros. This is a special place where you can paddle board next to a sea turtle or giant stingray one minute and dine on the freshest and most beautifully presented Island food the next (while sipping a glass of chilled French rosé, no less.)

Tiamo is a small property with impeccable, personal and personable service. Co-managers Julian and Wilfred ensure that standards remain high, yet the staff have a warm and relaxed attitude that makes you feel like you are part of the family.

Rooms are comfortable. They come equipped with a small fridge, as well as a kettle and various stemware. The fridge is kept well-stocked with complementary beverages. There is a separate dressing area and a spacious open-air bathroom with shower.

Highlights of our trip included snorkeling at a nearby "blue hole". For those, like myself, who are unadventurous in open water, this is the perfect spot where under the watchful eye of water sports manager Lee, who also happens to be a marine biologist, guests can view hundreds of different species in one area. My husband went diving several times and loved the experience as well. The equipment is top-notch and kept in excellent condition. Guests can help themselves to paddle boards, sailboats, and sea kayaks anytime. There is always someone around to help set you up--or rescue you--if needed.

The big pluses, including the great staff (hosts Julian and Wilfred, Lee, Audrey, Caroline, Pinky, Debra...and Chef Keith) is the abundance of wildlife, the beautiful, natural setting, the chilled, unpretentious vibe, the great food and well-curated wine list, and the peace-and-quiet. (No booming soundtrack, definitely NO floorshow!) Also, I loved the gym which was small but impeccably maintained with a good range of equipment.

Some minuses include the vibrant insect life. If you go, absolutely bring insect repellent (the resort provides it free-of-charge as well), in addition to anti-itch, anti-inflammatory potions. Do bring long pants and long-sleeved tops for the evening unless you want to slather yourself in citronella oil. The bugs are worse early in the morning and in the evening so avoid over-exposing yourself at those times if you're susceptible to bites. Pretty much everyone was covered in red spots during my stay so the bugs are pretty democratic in their tastes.

Another possible negative for some is the area is a hotspot for bone-fishing. This means the resort attracts a portion of guests who are nuts about fishing and it will be hard not to overhear endless tales about "the one who got away" at the bar. In addition, Lee's services are in great demand. If you want to book an excursion with him, best do so earlier than later before a large fishing party steals him away.

This is definitely not the place for singles or kids. Guests tend to be in their 30s and up. Some, like the group of Europeans who flew over on their own jet, are obviously moneyed, while others are of more modest means. Yet, everyone is treated similarly. This is not the place for poseurs.

Also, if you can spring for it, choose one of the air-conditioned rooms to deal with humidity. If your clothes refuse to dry, ask one of the maids to put them in the dryer and return them the same day, if required.

All-in-all, a great vacation experience and the true definition of Bahamian hospitality. For discerning, low-key travelers Tiamo is the ticket. (It's the anti-Harbour Island.)

Room Tip: Cottage # 10 (at the end) has amazing sunsets and a larger private pool and deck area but it is a fu...

The Tiamo was an amazing, relaxing experience. The private cottages make you feel like you live on a dessert island and the friendly staff make you feel like a local. We don't bonefish, so we spent our time relaxing, reading and snorkeling. We highly recommend this luxurious and intimate resort.

There are no words to adequately describe Tiamo Resort! It was the most beautiful, relaxing, and accommodating place that I have ever visited. The staff were absolutely wonderful. Each one greets you and makes you feel like you are part of a family. Since there are only 10 villas and the Eagle's Nest (a 3-bedroom house in which we had the opportunity to stay) with no kids allowed, it is very quiet and relaxing. However, there are water sports available if you wish to take advantage of those. The food was fabulous! We highly recommend this luxury resort for a quiet, relaxing, incredibly beautiful vacation! We were only able to stay for 3 days this time, but look forward to going back....in fact, we never wanted to leave. :o)

This place is amazing! Heaven on Earth. Beds are incredibly comfy. The food is divine. No detail goes unnoticed. Right on the water, which is as calm and warm as a bathtub! The staff is so nice and accommodating. Highly recommend this luxury resort for an intimate, quiet, peaceful getaway.

My husband found this place because Andros island is one of the capitals of bone fishing. He caught his biggest bone fish ever and needless to say he was in sevent heaven, which is something only a real fisherman can understand.....
I thought theplace was beautiful too. The water is great, and the grounds were beautiful. The food was five star and so was the service. The only reason I could not give this resort a five star overall was because of the bugs. There were these sandflies that were absolutely insatiable. They all seemed to feast on my blood. There was insect repellent available in the bathroom, but I do not like to put that on my skin. there was also 'skin so soft' available, which can work, but is not totally full proof. Infact, by the time I realized how bad it was, it was already too late, and I was covered with bites. My dream of sitting in one of the comfortable lounge chairs under the mangrove trees, overlooking the aqua sea was quickly scattered. I could not really be outside, unless I was on the water.
I know that mangament sprays regularly, but it is clearly not enough to keep these little pesks away. Using very strong chemicals is obviously very toxic and not very desirable either, thus, for those who are easy targets for the bugs this is not a great place. It is really too bad, because if it were not for the sand flies I could have easily stayed there for a month.
The private villa was charming with its plantation like decor; it had a very comfortbal bed with luxurious bedding and air conditioing; it had a nice little porch and a private pool as well as a great view of the lovely beach.
We met the loveliest people among the guests as well as among the friendly and helpful staff. The weather was great and the sunsets were to die for!

Room Tip: we occupied the tenth villa, which seems to be the most private one.
